Interesting find of a TMC RTS T70-606 on Fulton at Nostrand

Recommended Posts

+Note this thread will be moved to the Regional Forum shortly as it will get more visibility here

 

I was checking out some B44 runs, and as I began to head towards Nostrand to jump on the (A), my breath was taken away as I came across this TMC. Needless to say, I chose to jump on 4966 to head downtown so I could post this. I didn't think to ass the driver who was sitting on it if I could board and get the VIN?

 

Has anyone ever seen this bus before??

Does anyone know what agency it came from?? (SMART I am assuming.. whoever they are.. definitely not Detroit)

Does anyone know why it was parked on Fulton??

 

Sorry about the photo quality, I didnt think to clean the lense on this Evo before I shot the pics.

Hate to Break it to you but with a little research SMART is a Detriot Bus Company devoted to serve downtown and midtown sections of the city. I have never seen this bus before. I am assuming it might be stored at a nearby bus depot for training or something, but I not completely sure.

From the signs on the side I would say It's a church bus Calvary Chapel Nampa - Home

I would think that if the bus did not still belong to this church they would have made some attempt to remove or cover up the posters on the side...

Yeap, thats an ex-SMART Bus. Not sure why it would be out here in New York but Nice Catch!

 

Where is this SMART agency?

Wrong answer. I used to live in Detroit. Not only did that SMART never have any of these bus types, thats not their livery either.

Yeah, I know it's a church bus, but I'm trying to figure out where it came from.....

I found this photo on google, website is voiceofdetriot.net.

Thats definitely NOT Detroit. SMART (Detroit) never had any RTS' with the vent on the driver side rear panel......

 

And that is not a Michigan license plate either.

 

Edit: Now I see the script of the back which reads San Joaquin RTD.

The bus in your pic has Ohio plates, I recognize that. No idea for the bus in Casey's pic, doesn't look like CA plates unless they're ancient. [Looks like it's a 40-footer as well.] My guess is Smart is one of the companies like Veolia that runs service around the country, and the bus you saw is an ex-Smart and now church bus.

 

The plate looks like Idaho to me
