BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

Recommended Posts

Have there been orders from upper management to run Gun Hill's XD60's exclusively on the Bx22? I highly doubt that the drivers that are picking these buses randomly are covering the Bx22 when they do it.

I don't think so seeing as a few have been on the Bx5 as well as the 12 and 26.

No.

 

They've been on the Bx5(one is on there now), and the Bx12.

lol He's been noticing the same thing I've observed. They've primarily been on the Bx22 more than the Bx5 or the Bx12.

Probably a detour is in effect thru Amsterdam Avenue- Uptown.

You mean all the way from 125th to 163rd? And just weekdays or weekends or both?

 

I'm checking BusTime now, and it shows M101s running up Amsterdam.

Hmmm, I see. Maybe construction by George Washington High School or Yeshiva University.

Today I went to my old neighborhood (Flatbush) and saw an XN40 on the B11, so cool to see the new purple & yellow buses in my old hood, I got to catch one on the B8 now.

 

Its still weird to see Nova Attics & XD40s in the junction.

Please note on September 2nd, buses might be schedule to detour due to largest Official Animal Rights March in NYC. My vegan friends told me police officers will be closing streets during the march since this is huge march than other parade.

I spotted 5364 with an interesting rear wrap while at JFK sometime last week. I'm guessing it may have something to do with the (MTA) bus rodeo.

Curious, what was the wrap of?

Oh yeah every time someone wins they do that. I remember the same thing with an XD40 from CS.

Very nice catch MTA Bus. Now if they can put some ads or even a rear wrap on some of those buses. They been here almost 1 year and nothing. Something good to see with 5364.

To those who claimed low-floor buses "wouldn't last ten years", our oldest ones are now about 14 years old.

I like the low floor buses. The only thing they need to work on going forward is the layout and the suspension.  On the older low floor buses, you feel EVERY bump.  It really hurts my back and I'm not an old guy, but boy do you feel it. I rode the M102 last Saturday from 8th street to 34th and 3rd for the BxM1, and the layout is better on those.  I believe they repaved 3rd Avenue recently, so I didn't feel any major bumps.  I actually sat down since the bus was pretty clean.  The AC was good, and I like the way the seat layouts are in the middle of the bus as opposed to the older low floor buses.  Charger worked as well.  It was already a little dirty though, as in soot from the AC vents or something on one of the walls, but that's to be expected from Tuskegee.  It was clean otherwise.

 

 

I don't think they want to cover up the wrap/paint, it would be a waste for them to wrap/paint the buses and place ads all over it. Also 4140 from jfk also has one on the left side behind the drivers area.

I agree. There are some passengers that hate the ads, especially the ones that block the windows. I don't like them either.  I like to be able to look out of the window, and I also think it's not good from a safety standpoint. If someone is doing something on the bus, no one can really look inside unless the bus is stopped, otherwise, it's quite difficult to see in. I've heard some people actually complain to the driver about it, so surely some must file complaints officially.
