New York City Bus Riddles

Recommended Posts

Similar to the NYCS Riddles Thread, this is about NYC buses.

Remember:

•One Riddle to be solved at a time

•One guess per member at a time

•Members have 24 hours to respond

•After 24 hours, another riddle will be posted

•After a person gets the answer, they go, and so on

 

I'll start first:

I start from the top of the Bronx, down to somewhere else (in the Bronx). Branches are not my type, and do not pass NYC boundaries. Who am I?

Bx10? (There are a few routes that would fit your description)

 

The Bx39 doesn't reach any Bronx-Westchester boundary, so nope

 

You didn't say it had to, though. You just said that it starts at "the top of The Bronx".

Correct. Pass to B35 or go

I'll be more specific next time

I can't think of a really good one, but here goes....

 

Spending much of my time on hills, my terminal is right outside a hospital. My purpose is more of a coverage purpose, so my ridership is relatively low and my headways are high.

Q43 or B8

 

The Q43 doesn't terminate by a hospital on either end. The B8 is a good guess (though I don't think it spends much time on hills), because both of its terminals are by hospitals. But just to clarify, only one terminal is by a hospital.

 

I revised my riddle to include a little information about the routing and ridership.

I'll go this time.

Here's an easy one:

 

My route is very long in Brooklyn. My ridership is one of the highest borough wide. I serve the Brooklyn College Flatbush (2)(5) and Orion 3Gs are part of my fleet.

I am an Express route. Like most of my kind, I have multiple routings in Manhattan, and in my outer borough section, some peak direction trips are extended to serve an area served by another express bus that serves a different borough. Who am I?

The BM2.

 

Has three different routes in Manhattan, Downtown + Midtown outside of Rush Hour, and the Downtown branch and the Midtown Super Express both during Rush Hour. Some Downtown branch trips in Rush Hour are extended to Spring Creek towers, to supplement the BM5, which runs in Queens and only serves Midtown.
