Man, let me tell you what. Everything Coach USA seems to touch goes to crap. I worked at Community but there was really no room for growth there. I got the hell out of there

If the rumor is true, then they will only have Olympia/ONE Bus/EWR Express, Suburban, what's left of Rockland Coaches or The Red & Tan brand, and the #77 line that they own.

Currently riding 874 on 30 ft NABI 1637 From Pine Brook to Morristown for a connection to the 880 to Dover. These are really quick accelerating buses

Fall pick flats are up at my garage... looks like Oradell will be parking some buses at Galvin Lot again as well as the Suburban Bus Level (3rd floor) at the Port. We lost 29th Street a couple weeks ago. I'll check tonight to see if I can catch some of the new gate assignments.

If anyone is interested, NJT sold the GE locomotives to Connecticut to be used for the Shore East line

Question: Is it okay to take non-commercial photos and videos of NJTransit buses (like with their trains)?

Absolutely. As long as you're on a public sidewalk or what have you, and you don't interfere with the operation of the bus, you're good to go.

so all the buses were rerouted to Secaucus because of a car fire in the Lincoln Tunnel, but a NJT train broke down in the Amtrak tunnel around the same time

On my way driving I gave that announcement in Summit and some passengers wanted to get off and take the train, but the Midtown Directs were diverted to Hoboken. Wondered why.

 

I saw confirmation of the passengers report as 3 sets of ALP46 consists were seemingly in line waiting to get into Hoboken. Then I got word the bus lane was moving again, much to my delight. As I passed Exit 15X, I saw lines of buses trying to get into Secaucus, and everybody standing inside the Station a'la Super Bowl fiasco. I was held at the toll booth to get into the bus lane for 30 minutes due to a separate incident just past the area

Only the RTS Hybrids were still there last I passed by.

 

Speaking of the RTS have they found anyone to buy some of them? Not just the hybrids but the Novas in general

The MyTix app just got updated as a general transit app. Now also has Departurevision and Mybus (no real time though) and a couple other things.

Just checked it out. Real time works on my end. The app is laggy as all hell though.

I'm finding the NJT WiFi inside PABT to be useless. My regular internet gets better reception -_- (VG8 face)

Really? I was able to upload a 300mb video to YouTube in about 5mins today. It works best on the 3rd floor.
