The M191 seems to be suspended with no suspension notice on the website. It’s on the bus stops though.

 

I would probably predict that the Elevator Shuttle for the A train at 181st St is also suspended for the same reason

I honestly have no words to describe any of this.

All together now...more proof that...the craziest people in America come from the Bronx, and all of Florida! People will deny it, but this is proof of that and there is proof every day of it.

For the people in the IG post...would that be the worst thing to plow them over? It's clear that they're future delinquents.

Anyone with better bus knowledge than me know what the capacity of an XD40 and XD60 are, seated + standing? I'm thinking of starting up more cohesive transit writings again so I need this info, but everywhere I can find only really estimates seated.

Nah, I can't take the credit here - it was @BM5 via Woodhaven that recalled that asinine comment of his in another thread about a week or two ago....

That train already derailed.

Off the cuff, I'd have told you 80 & 120 (respectively), but this is clearly more credible:

For record keeping, 6281 has luggage racks but is not in the LGA scheme just yet

Add 6285 to the list

This is probably moot with all the redesigns coming, but which BC routes kept their routings since the PBL days? I know off the top of my head, the Q110 and 111 did. The Q22, 38, 49, 64, 67, 69, 72, 100, 101, 103 and 104 did as well.

Q6, Q9, Q11, Q18, Q22, Q29, Q35 basically just changed the direction of its terminal, Q39.
I’m not 100% with the Q66, I think it used to terminate at the Queensbridge (F) station but looking at old Queens bus maps it’s looks like it stopped a block away from Queensboro Plaza. 

I don’t recall the B100 ever changing it’s route.

On the express side of things I’m not 100% but I think the QM1, QM4 and QM21 are roughly the same. I would say the QM6 basically the same as well even though it was called the QM1A.

The Q66 used to terminate at the Queensbridge (F) station until 2007.

If you want to be nitpicky, they have changed the QM1 routing on the Fresh Meadows end. Buses used to pick up on 64th Avenue & 188th Street, and then turn onto 188th Street onto Manhattan. However, the QM1 now starts on 188th Street itself (north of 64th Ave, between HHE & 64th Ave). 

The QM1A/QM5 routing has remained the same I believe. So has the QM1A/QM6 routing.

Oh yeah I do remember it having that stop on 64th Ave & 188th. It also had a stop on 188th & 64th Ave itself because the stop on 64th Ave was used I think only during the AM rush. It always interest me how the Union Turnpike expresses have their own spot where buses stop at during the rush hour in addition to the regular stop it would share all other times with the local bus. I haven’t seen this practice anywhere else that I can recall. Probably Staten Island since they have a lot buses that serve the same stops at a time.

Free money for the operator. I wouldn't be mad. Just pull the brake, call it in to console and chill. Screw it.
