NJT/Private operators Riddles Thread

Recommended Posts

From the MTA section, but for NJT and NJ's private operators and contractors

 

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 off.

 

Like many NJT interstate routes, I have a few intrastate short-turn(IST for short) trips. However, what makes my IST trips different is in addition to not serving Union City(b/c my route doesn't enter there to begin with), neither of them are on the main branch and many of my IST trips head toward NYC(but don't stop there.) Who am I?

True. You make a good one. You said the bus doesn't go into UC, so that means the 190 is out since that bus does trips in the AM Starting and stopping at UC. I dunno.

The answer was the 126.

 

*Does not serve Union City

*Has inbound intrastate short-turn trips (as well as outbound ones)

*not one short-turn intrastate trip is on the main branch.(they're all via Willow/Clinton)

Damn really? All right.

 

I'm a route owned by belonging to an...expanding private "association". However, unlike most of my fellows routes, including some recent additions, who have fairly streamlined paths(not too many turns along its route), my route doesn't on a particular street very long, although it may back and forth along two roads. It used to have the same mainstream fleet as the other routes in my association, but now, all you'll see are "babies".

one new rule.

 

If the person who got the answer right doesn't decide to pass or go after 24 hours, it's an automatic pass. Since it's last minute on majestic's part, I'll give him until 7:45 tomorrow morning.

Shouldn't it be 3:31 tomorrow afternoon, since that's when he posted? Or 7:43 tomorrow evening since that's when it was confirmed that he had the right answer?

7:43 it is, but he must decide by then or it's a pass.

Wait until B35 confirms your answer.

yes, it was the 319....

sure the 319 is split, but it's the only NJT route where it's the only route out of a depot (egg harbor, in this case) that runs to NYC.

Actually, I'll put out a guess of my own. The 351 as operated by Community Coach.

 

But please, no one answer QJT's riddle until B35 confirms his answer.

 

wrong Hint: if it's connections were better it would be a double ended commuter line and it died in 2010
