BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

Recommended Posts

I wonder if they forgot about those buses, especially the ones that came off SBS.

I think because they're wrapped they just don't bother.  To be honest, when the 40 footers were unwrapped from the M34 and put on other lines, they looked brand new, so they weren't repainted until much later on in most cases. Those buses didn't take the same pounding as these artics though.

The 1200 LFSAs that I saw in the Bronx and SBS M15: the only change on those buses are the seats

The other day I saw a 40 foot LFS on the south-bound Van Wyck Expressway. It was being used for training. Why are drivers being trained on the Van Wyck Expressway?

It must of returned from Zerega after training sessions were done.

Honestly I can't for the Bx6 to get SBS. That courthouse traffic is horrible in the mornings. Today it took 13 minutes to get from Yankee Stadium to Sheridan Avenue (1 stop away mind you). It usually happens but since they are making the eastbound tunnel bus only, maybe it will speed up travel time in the mornings.

It's a short turn. Instead of going all the way up to the Bronx, those "Whitestone" runs end at the stop before the Whitestone bridge.

........which is 14th Ave & Parsons Blvd

What depot are they from? Some depots don't need as many buses during the summer cause there's no school trippers.  I remember Jamaica sent some of it's RTS to Stengel either last summer or the one before that. Jamaica's a pretty small depot, making some room.

Can't really tell looking from the (7) but, I wouldn't be surprised if it came from Jamaica

Do you think buses should be committed more to highways and boulevards and less to one-way roads and smaller avenues (as long as walking distance is not more than a half mile)?

 

I'm asking because buses have HOV permits and I feel they're underutilized. I also feel it'd help with congestion and help buses avoid snarls and intersections where pedestrian-related fatalities occur.

Does 6001 have different signage than the other XD60s? Looks like it uses something that is not Hanover.

Yeah it has the multicolored version of the signs in the Prevosts

Would anyone happen to know why 4896 was near Quill earlier? I saw it going up 12th Avenue around 4:30 

 

It was probably on the shuttle (think the 1 or 3 shuttle) and the driver

stopped there to use the bathroom, heading back to UP.

No date has been released yet. But there are SBS fare machines installed already along 163rd and they are creating the bus island stop at Sheridan Avenue.

If an express bus is full, can passengers still board the bus or wait for another one to arrive?
