The Old S79

Recommended Posts

As we all know, starting today, the S79 will not look like this anymore

My final ride on the S79.

 

And now the other buses, which will remain the same.

You roll with a big entourage! Who's everybody there? Excellent shots all around though, nice seeing those Vs on the 79 while they're still there, same seeing the 4200s running on other routes for the time being. Good stuff.

Nice! What's that S44 doing over there? That looks like it's at the back of the mall, by Marsh Avenue, and he's going southbound so I don't think it's a tripper or anything. Weird......

 

BTW, I checked out a couple of your videos. Nice to see busfanners going to places other than the SI Mall & St. George. The only one I can think of offhand who does that frequently is Cait Sith. (Well, I guess you could count me. LOL.)

Thanks everyone :)

 

On that day I was with Astoria Line, dmouse, tvega, LRG and QSC TMC 295 on the forums .. I barely ever fan alone now lol

 

I don't know about the 44, didn't think it was anything out of the ordinary since I thought they all took the same way into the S I Mall

 

As for the S89 I'd love it to have 7 day service.. we need more routes into Jersey

Does anyone think the S89 should get SBS and 7 day service?

 

 

That line is the last line that should be getting SBS. Ridership isn't that strong, and the route is pretty fast already.

 

Thanks everyone :)

Yeah, and that 3rd S79 pic from the top looks out of place too. I wonder if something was happening at the "front" of the mall that required the buses to be detoured.

 

I was thinking of planning a couple of busfan trips later this month (one would be for the North Shore. The other would involve the S79 & S89). When we figure out our schedules for school and after-school stuff, we can start planning it out.

 

For the S89, the sad thing is ridership really isn't that high. I think there should be some kind of off-peak shuttle between Forest Avenue and the HBLR, but the problem with that is that it makes it less attractive for commuters who park at the ETC (since they have to transfer to the S59).

Thanks everyone :)

 

As for the case with the S89, yes running an off-peak shuttle would not be too attractive since it would require the extra transfer. Then again if you run it down to the Transit Center you might as well run it all the way to Hylan Blvd lol
