So I'm on 7212 now on the 139...dammmmm these seats are HARD. Back row got the most comfy seats in the bus hands down and they don't even recline.

 

Also there actually is a small luggage bin under the bus next to the front door and I was gonna use it but the driver told me to bring my stuff inside.

I've noticed zips on the NJT luggage compartments. They've been doing that ever since the Boston Marathon incident

 

I've been meaning to say something about having not seen a Designline in awhile when I deadhead into NY/Port, but then started seeing a few and said never mind....

Noticed a service pattern with the DesignLines. Whenever they come out, they seem to do only one 139 run and they're also put on the lines that aren't on Route 9 (mainly the 133, 137, & 138, they aren't on the 135 because of Exit 120 P/R).

They are not trying to run them too much.

NJT has had a history of not using the luggage compartments dating back to 9/11 that I can recall.

NJT is exercising the option order of 63 additional  MCI D4500 CNG cruisers, which would lead to the total of 148

Good to see they were able to award a contract for the buses they need without having to wait for the DesignLine crap to play out in court. I wonder if MCI is still (as rumored) going to take back the DesignLines in exchange for 13 new MCIs or if they'll be staying.

Hopefully the first batch comes soon....

 

I know those passengers are gonna complain about the ML-style seats but they're just gonna have to deal with it and be glad they're no longer gonna be crammed into a D4000.

 

The roster numbers could go as follows:

7200-7348

8113-8197;8301-8364

9055-9202
