BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

Recommended Posts

Pet peeve: sitting on a bus with tons of seats and the window cracked open. Somebody comes and sits in the seat next to me and tells me the close window. Just wanna say, bitch, there ARE other seats.

I hate when people cut their nails on the bus...

 

So disgusting...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Poor 5...oh well, another one bites the dust....

 

So how many buses have we lost to fire damage this year? I know two RTS' went up in smoke earlier this year.

 

And yeah this was an engine fire the funny thing is I saw this bus yesterday in the S57. Now it's gone. Damn.

A "Here, Close it yourself" suffices each & every single time for me....

 

I've told a couple people that whenever I'm asked to close a window...

Sometimes them damn things be stuck... Not injuring my hand & using any extra effort for that anymore.....

True, but I see more of that shit on the train personally (I'm talkin toenails)... And for some odd reason, on the broadway lines....

 

For instance, Glad I don't take the (Q) in the morning anymore; too many women using it to preen themselves - I guess a couple bucks in an hour worth's pay really is that important for some.... Then again, who knows how many latenesses these chicks done accumulated, to the point where if they get one more, they ass is gone..... Lol !

 

(personal peeve... I find very little appalling from a woman than one that puts on makeup in public... Don't ask.)

6311 is definitely retired. No purpose for it to be fixed. Was it really the maintance that cause it to burst into flames?

I would have to say most likely. If the mechanics don't put some things back correctly there is definitely room for mishap which could cause something like this to happen.

Don't 5's have fire supression?

The fire suppression nozzles on an O5 are only in the engine and battery compartments.

I wouldn't be so quick to blame them for it. Too early to tell what caused it or who's fault it is. Could've just been another freak accident. Remember, we even had buses that burst into flames before they even hit service like the Phoenix (0010/4396), and the first 9656.

Between this year and last year, it's been quite a handful.

What if express buses were not closed door, meaning they charge only 2.5 if traveling within the same borough

I've always wanted to ride the express bus but the price is a little too expensive for me at the moment and I have nothing to do in Manhattan besides going back home. I guess it's not that bad since I've been on regular coach bus MCI's.

They wouldn't be express buses and there would be no point in having them.  As I've said numerous times, the whole purpose of express buses is to serve those commuting from the outerboroughs to Manhattan, as they are commuter buses.

Nah, if they were to make them open door at least charge the $6.00 one way fare. It's only fair.

So there are precisely zero blackback 2002-2003 D60HFs that remain in service, correct? Along with zero RTSes from 9350-9699, and zero O7s from 6365-6700?
