Never thought I'd see an MTA bus this far out west...

Recommended Posts

So what was 7025 doing out in Parsippany, NJ on route 46 west in my neck of the woods at 9:00pm (12/11/12)? Wish I could have shot a photo, but we were on the way home and the bus just popped up out of no where travelling in the opposite direction heading back to the city, so there was no time to do anything.. =/

Going to NYC maybe. Because 7025 is new.

I actually see quite a few (MTA) express buses not in the normal "spots" I would expect to see them there in NJ. Some of them aren't deadheading back from the city, but instead appear to be coming from other parts of NJ.

Before SBS came to the M15 I once saw 3 or 4 SBS wrapped buses in a row driving Northbound on the NJ Turnpike. They were going about the same speed as the rest of traffic, which was probably 60+ mph. I think this was somewhere between the Gothels and Holland tunnel.

Makes sense. That's usually where I see MCI express buses coming from.... Some place other than the city. They must get worked on over in NJ or something. At one time I believe I recall somewhere seeing that the last batch of MCIs (22XXs) were stored somewhere in NJ before they were sent to their respective depots.

There's an Atlantic Diesel down Rte 80. I believe in Hackensack. I've seen a handful of MCI buses parked there from NYCT and NJ Transit.

I remember seeing Orion 5 434 out there once (now scrap) coming from NJ turnpike onto Rt80/95 towards GW Bridge.

So they go there to fuel up??? :confused:

It's for repairs on the engine I believe.
