BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

Recommended Posts

3563 (the lone diesel Orion 7) just passed me deadheading to the B100, still has JFK stickers. 

Probably Just a loan. I thought the (MTA) had plans to convert more of these orion 7s into Diesel.

Well, it has been more than six years since the bus was converted. Plans for more conversions were quickly dropped later on.

They had plans, but it was cheaper to maintain the hybrids as is.

exactly. Q3, Q10 & B15 are all about airport employees.

And the cheapskates.

Little known fact tho: On the weekends, the Q10 actually has more service by itself than the (E) and the Airtrain out of Jamaica combined, so at least on Saturday and Sunday transferring between the Q10 and the (E) and (F) at Kew Gardens will treat you better (especially if the (E) is via 6th or the (F) via 8th) than transferring between the (E) and the Airtrain at Jamaica.

Will Queens Village still need 40 NG’s once the winter pick begins? Hopefully some will go to Fresh Pond to retire more 2005’s.

Queens Village recently got a bunch from Casey Stengel when the Q12 received artics and a few from Kingsbridge.

That depends on the pick itself and how much work is available(if they lost any or gained any).

Can’t confirm but I hear the B48, B57 and B60 are returning to GA in exchange for the Q58 to FP

I kinda wish the B48 would go back to Gleason, those were the days.

6171 is on the L shuttle between Myrtle and Broadway Junction. Never seen an artic on the L shuttle ever, so it's a bit surprising

I never knew Jackie G had the B48. Learn something new everyday! :)

Those schedules during Gleason days were excellent and perfect interline with the B16. Also, the deadhead is better by Gleason vs Grand/Fresh Pond.

The :bus_bullet_bx35: is still not fully artic - you will sometimes see a C40LF or XN40 on bustime, even though it was supposed to be fully artic on SEPTEMBER 1.

You realize that happens with almost every other artic route, especially outside of Manhattan.

That happens with a lot of Bronx articulated routes, I hope you know. The Bx35 is still an official articulated route.

The 9:40 Bx10 on Sundays (From Norwood) always “leaves early because dispatch told him to”, but yet he left at 9:41, knowing that he saw me walk up to his bus, finally got this dude on video and his run number too.

I'm confused... You say that he always leaves early, but left at 9:41 tonight? Why is that? In other words, I don't follow what you're writing. What caused him to leave one minute late tonight?

I think he's saying that the B/O saw him filming the bus this time, so he waited until the correct time to leave the terminal.

To re-write what I said, he was supposed to leave at 9:40, left at 9:41, walked to Paul and Mosholu to confront him, he know he saw me at Norwood because he said "You and your boys had a good day", and proceeded to say "dispatch told me to leave early", when me and my boys (also into transit), saw him leave at 9:41, even though he saw us waiting at Norwood on time.

So he was suppose to leave at 9:40 but left at 9:41 instead.

What's the issue again? I'm also confused lol

Unless he left earlier on previous times

That's essentially what he is saying... I'm guessing that he only left late yesterday because he knew he was being filmed.  Previously he said the driver told him dispatch told him to leave early. lol

So why is he lying about leaving early?

Matter of fact, why is he saying anything of the sort to you......

He's done this multiple times before where he left "not in service" because "dispatch told him to leave early", but went in service at Williamsbridge Oval Park, this is the one time I actually confronted him.

He blatantly lied, I videotaped him actually admitting to leaving me behind in Norwood, its on Twitter, if you want to see.
