Which one doesn't belong (Bus edition)

Recommended Posts

christ.... lol... 4 guesses on my riddle already.....

 

 

Q46 since it has overnight service

 

Q46-only bus route that doesn't connect to the B train.

 

The Q46 because its the only one with limited stop service.

 

The Q46 is the only one that is a subway feeder route. The other ones all intersect multiple subway lines.

 

All incorrect.

 

Sorry if I kinda mislead y'all after my reply to Dan.... But it's not the Q46....

I'm not saying it's incorrect because of the reasons given for the 46....

 

I don't know what the "rules" are for this game, but w/ my riddles, you can guess as many times as you want - as long as separate guesses aren't listed in back-to-back guesses.... In other words, someone has to guess before you make your next guess.....

lmao.... that's more of an opinion....

 

regardless, incorrect (for the purposes of the game).

I was about to say the M66 because it's the only one that doesn't end at a hospital, but then I realized that there are some hospitals along York Avenue. The B8 ends at hospitals on both ends (VA Hospital & Brookdale), so I guess that'll be my answer.

 

I was going to say the Bx32 because it's the only one that spends most of its time going north-south, but I don't think that's it. I'm sticking with the B8.

Here are some reasonable rules:

 

ONE riddle at a time.

You can guess as many times as you want.

If you get it right, you can go (and no one else can post) or you can pass (and someone else can go)

The riddle must only have ONE answer. It gets to ridiculous if it has more than one (like B35's riddle above.)

 

B35's riddle should be the last one with more than one answer.

For the purposes of this game, if what they say is correct you technically have to give it to them.

 

Um, yes, I know that.... Good job stating the obvious though.

-------------------------------

 

 

 

Anyway, Beeline gets a point. The route that doesn't belong is the M66.

 

Checkmate, your reason was close (Beeline guessed the right route first though)....

I chose the M66 b/c it's the only one of the 4 that ends at a hospital - that doesn't end IN a hospital !

 

B8-va hospital, Bx32-va med ctr, Q46-LIJ

(yes, I know the Q46 temporarily doesn't go inside LIJ.... but normally it does)

--------------------------------

 

 

Beeline, pass or go ?

That's the thing: For any 4 routes, you could probably find some reason as to why one doesn't belong.

 

Go

This one is easy

Bx12

M15

M34/34A

S79

 

 

S79: The only one without POP.

The S79 is the only SBS route without off-board fare payment. Pass.

This game NEEDs rules as b35 says... Totally confusing......

 

Here are the rules:

Pick 4 routes

You have to select one that doesn't have anything in common with the other 3 and explain why

If you're right, you either pass or go. You're wrong, someone else gets a chance to answer

3 guesses per question

 

Hope this helps

True, as the S79 is also the only one that doesn't enter Manhattan. Maybe B35's point system could work, but there shouldn't be more than one route.

Well, People can do what they want; That wasn't something I was suggesting as a "rule" for this game.

I'm just doing that on my own to make this game a little more fun.... Nothing more, nothing less.

 

 

That's the thing: For any 4 routes, you could probably find some reason as to why (any)one doesn't belong.

 

Which was exactly my point.... You saved me a (longer) reply to him....

Thanks.

Anyway, I was also gonna say the S79 for that same reason, but you beat me to it.

I got it first anyway. ;) (I wouldn't have been able to see your response because it was on the next page. The edit was because I forgot to mention that the route was the S79. I only put down "The only route without POP")

 

In any case, here's mine: S40, S44, S46, S48

That wasn't it, it was "the only route not entering Manhattan".

 

I want to say the S44 for yours because it's the only one that doesn't serve Arlington in some way.

The Bx55 is the only one that doesn't go into Queens.

 

That wasn't it, it was "the only route not entering Manhattan".

 

I want to say the S44 for yours because it's the only one that doesn't serve Arlington in some way.

 

 

Well, Arlington is technically on the other side of the railroad tracks. The area south of the tracks is Mariners' Harbor, but you get the idea. (They all serve Mariners' Harbor, they all run on South Avenue, etc)

 

Now that I think about it, the S40 could also be the right answer, because it's the only one that doesn't connect with the S89. It could also be the S46, because it's the only one that doesn't have short-turns at the point where the limited ends. The S48 has short-turns at Richmond, the S44 has short-turns at Jewett, and the S40 has short-turns at Arlington Place (that would be stretching it because the S90 technically ends its limited-stop portion at South & Richmond Terrace, but the next stop is Arlington Place anyway), while the S46 doesn't have short-turns at Port Richmond Avenue.

 

But since my first thought was about South Avenue, you're correct.

True, but not what I was looking for. It's a little more arbitrary.

B38 because you live near it.....

S44 isn't a 24/7 route
