Busing along Brooklyn 12/30/11

Recommended Posts

I found new buses again today, this time most of the focus is on the B6 route.

 

First the Orion 7 3G on the B6 numbered 7035

Great photos and catches!

 

Thank you very much.

 

In my turf son ! Lol , good shots !

 

Ulmer Park Depot is the closest depot to home for me, however it's not within a reasonable walking distance for most, but for me it takes like 40 minutes to get there from walking or just a short B1 bus ride from home will do.

 

Anyways, thanks a lot.

15 minutes from Brighton Beach/Coney Island Avs (I usually board the B1 there to 25 Av/86 St, and then a 5 minute walk from there to the depot) is usually how I go.

 

Ahh cool, you go to school near the bus depot or do you have to transfer less from bus to bus?

 

And btw this is the interior of the Orion 7 3G I got on today on the B6. It was packed when I boarded the bus.

Great pics! MattTrain, what do you think of the new buses and what's your favorite?

 

Thank you very much, Princelex. This was my first time riding a Orion 7 3G and a New Flyer XD40. I think these buses are really cool.

 

Now interior wise, I like the New Flyer XD40 better because it seems so roomy in the back. There doesn't seem to be much standing room on the Orion 7 3G because of the way the seats are set up in the back (all seats are facing forward, with a pair of seats raised up because of the wheels)

 

The C40LF (newer ones) are better than the old ones, interior wise also, the seating arrangement is almost the same as the old one, except that the one person seats are on the left side of the bus.

 

In the end though, the LFS is still my favorite because of the back window and the conversation seats.

 

Well shoot man. Awesomeness at it's finest. Give em some applause.

Thanks a lot for the applause. Glad you like the photos. :cool:
