Has anyone noticed the high number of OG/NG on CP routes? I see them running almost everyday in multiple lines. Does CP have a problem atm?

Shortage of buses. Its also the same reason why a OG can find its way on the B100 & B103. It happens.

Last few times out I've seen uptown M2 buses signed up as saying M2 Limited / M2 Worth St via 5th / Bway

A sign of things to come, perhaps?

I know the M1 is supposed to be extended from Grand st to Worth st when construction work is completed on Worth st  so maybe the M2 will be extended as well

Construction work almost finished around the Worth Street area. At the least by the courthouse.

i wouldn't be surprised. if/when the demand for worth street grows, it'd be kinda convenient to have the M2 there as well, as opposed to only locals serving worth

Yes I agree especially being that there’s a major shopping center in that area & a great connection to the court houses, City Hall & the Brooklyn bridge

Well, there goes another 12XX down the drain, 1201 is on fire currently at Kingsbridge and Grand Concourse, hopefully there’s no casualties, or injuries.

At least they are getting more from MCH.

Just for wishful thinking a M15 local terminal restoration at City Hall. I don’t know if the demand is there again to resurrect that terminal. A perfect interline with the M103.

How do you guys view the idea that local buses should be free? Most people agree routes like Q70 should be, but what about others?

The New Flyer C40LF’s at Jackie Gleason still have the Oat Milk Ads, however 436 and 469 have the bigger sized ones that are typically found only on the Orion VII buses.

By the way, does anyone know when the remaining Oatly Ads will be removed from Jackie Gleason’s buses? I really get a good chuckle from them so I don’t mind them.

I was thinking of trying to go around the city (all 5 boroughs, maybe excluding Staten Island) on non-NYCT routes. Walking, MTAB, MNRR, LIRR, Bee-Line, NICE, all could work (as long as I can pay with either a MetroCard or some sort of phone app. I want to start and end in the same place. Any thoughts on my route or starting/ending point?

Thanks,

@New Flyer Xcelsior

A good chunk in the Brooklyn Division have them. (Matter of fact all of Brooklyn Division have them). Saw 436 on the 63 and that is correct on that assessment. Also, MQ/MV/MCH still have the oat milk ads.

Start at Flatlands Ave and E105. Take the B103 to Brooklyn College. Walk to Ave K take the Bm1/4 to Madison and 23 St. Take the Bxm7 to Co-op. Take the Q50 to Flushing. Q25/34/65 to Jamaica. Take the Q113/114 to Seagirt. Take the Q22 to B116. Take the Q35 to Brooklyn College. Take the B103 back.

The ad's on the rear of Manhattan buses appear to be a new 2nd campaign. I think the Brooklyn Division ones are holdovers from the original but I hope I'm wrong because I prefer them over the new Museum of Sex ones.
