Orion VII 4474

bus beeping.

Recommended Posts

I was on XD40 4887 on friday, and I couldn't help but to hear every time the bus was about open the doors, there would be a beep about a second long. Can anyone tell me what that beeping is.

There's a noise that the bus makes if the B/O has opened the front doors and unlocked the rear doors while the bus is still in motion, if that's what you're referring to. On the OGs at least it has to do with the interlocking system.

MHV9218 is correct. It happens with every bus actually, even the RTS'... The doors won't open until the bus comes to a complete stop. And with the LFSAs, if the front doors are open and you begin moving more than 5mph, the doors automatically close.

I hear the beeping sometimes on the Orion 7's when I am riding the Q18, Q67, and sometimes on the Q58

but most likely on the Q67

It can be annoying for everyone including the bus driver, I guess its the bus having the back doors unlocked or something like some of y'all said.

I don't think it is the alert that Acela is referring to. This is a soft "bing" noise that literally goes on for the ENTIRE trip on the LFS's on the Q46. It has nothing to do with the doors being opened.

Unlocking the doors before the bus comes to a complete stop will make the beep sound. If you have an beeky on the bus you in trouble ;)

That's the turn signal as well...all New Flyer buses we have and LFS/As we have also have a turn signal sound

There is a guy on the Bx35 who will do this from about a block away from the bus stop (depending how long the block is) and I would hear the beeping sound for the entire block.

 

Good thing he drives decently fast.

Got it. I'm guessing that means these B/O's have their hazards flashing for the whole trip, which I've seen in the past. I'll look more closely nexttime I hear the constant beeping.
