Do you have proof of some kind?

 

 

Yonkers is schedule to be closed and routes to be shuffled around. That has always been the case with this depot, it was not meant to be a permenant fixture. An exact date of closing is not avail.

Probably because it's too small to justify the expense (80 buses is almost nothing).

 

As for the closing date, it's probably one of those it-would-be-good-and-we'll-do-it-eventually things.

It's pretty far from the city border. That might be another reason why they're closing it.

Far Rockaway has 69 though

 

FR has 5 local routes, 4 express routes, is operating buses 24/7 and has way less deadhead times than Yonkers. Its not about number of buses, but the service it provides, and hours of operations for its routes.

Well that sucks... Why is it closing anyway??

 

IIRC...Liberty Lines owns the depot and the land (i think), not the MTA

MTABC owns Yonkers as well as Spring Creek.

 

The following depots are leased to MTABC:

JFK, FR, BP and LGA are owned by GBL, JB, and TBC which if anyone knows, was all owned and operated as one company under 3 names. They still own the depots.

EC is still owned by the former President of NYBS

CP is owned by the City

Yeah, but even so they could move some other routes to Yonkers Depot. The Bx7, Bx9 and Bx10 both terminate at the Yonkers' border and you also have the Bx1 and Bx20 that terminate either in or at the Riverdale border.

That won't happen because NYCB routes can't be moved to MTAB depots and vice versa... At least, not until Regional Bus is fully kicking.
