Nice!

 

I actually wasn't paying attention to the new SBS Signs (on the poles). They look weird, because there's not too much contrast between the regular local signs.

Great pics, I see why the route does not need off-board fare collection, the the S79 get that crowded?

 

 

Ether the MTA is trying a new approach or likely because boarding time is a lot faster, and does not require machines for the SBS79, compared to the Bx12/M15/M34 SBS, which allows the use of all doors to speed it up.

At times, yes, but from what I've seen, most of the crowding is on the Brooklyn end. I mean, there have been times when 3 S79s passed 92nd & Fort Hamilton within say, 25-30 minutes, with all 3 of them being full to the white line. The thing is that since a lot of the riders get on at the first stop, it's not that bad, since the B/Os can load up as they're finishing up their layover.

 

Personally, I don't like POP unless the service is frequent all day, and there are a decent amount of times when the buses run every 15 minutes or more. (So in other words, if you're fumbling for your ticket while the bus is loading, you're going to end up waiting 15+ minutes)
