Now you know how MTA is. Do they put a new card in when the bus is brought in, and the old card disappears, so the other driver has no clue the bus is defective????

150px-The home of the Dawgs!!!
Yeah, the raggity dawgs...

 

I think they duct taped the back door because it keeps opening on it's own. I used to think LIB took better care of buses than MTAB...

Well, College Point(QSC) and Spring Creek(Command) had the best CNG fleets, and they are two of the best Depots as far as maintenance. So In a way, MTAB's fleet is better, but I like LIB's best!

They still have not fixed 156? Oh man I remember 4 years ago I was on the N79 coming out of Walt Whitman Mall, and the bus kept stopping for no reason. The b/o had to open and close the w/c lift to get the back door to "close". He did this several times before getting to Hicksville.

Stalled out that day too. True POS.

100 seems to run pretty good to me, the ZF-Ecomat tranny seems alot smoother than the Allisons.

Only problem is they stall out for no reason, but they usually start back up again. The same cant be said for the Allisons.

100 can either be the best bus you drivee, or the absolute worst bus you drive, it just depends wat day you get it....some days i love driving it, other days i wish i could burn it myself

Allison is smoother but ZF in this case takes off faster, it's still pretty smooth. 101 has grown on me...

101 shoulda been junked years ago......

 

 

okay so how about a little history for you.....

 

 

when we first got bus 100 it was the only CNG we really got, and more were on the way very soon to come.........the day we got it it was checked out by a mechanic and given out to a driver.......driver pre tripped it and was aloud to take it on his run ......

 

idk if you are familiar with roads around the yard but he made a left outta the yard onto commercial avenue towards Stewart, and made it literally about 200-300 feet.....................than broke down lol...his radio died as well so a bus comin from charles lindbergh boulevard had to radio it in

 

 

 

 

 

lol if u guys ever have any buses u want the history of, or see how they run or whatever, im ur man to ask lol:)

Ouch...broke down on it's maiden voyage. B)

Remember those Orion 2's? Their first trip also broke down. They couldn't get them running for long enough though, because after a few years I didn't even see them anymore.

Also didn't the CNG buses have different kind of radios when they were delivered? I remember a telephone handset being used.

I think 657-666 were the first CNG's actually, they sounded similar to the low 100s. They also had cloth seats (similar to newer NYCT buses). Those were verrryyy slow, unreliable, and they couldn't run with the a/c on or they'd breakdown. They are all gone, retired years ago, for obvious reasons.

So when these buses (from 13x or 14x and up) came, they used to cricket? Seems like alot of them don't even cricket, only one I remember cricketing from LIB is 175, 288, 322, and I think it was 458.
