NJT has modified the 86 to serve parts of the former A&C 4 since last Saturday.

What did they do to it (the #86) ?

No word of anything on the website, last I checked....

It looks like they have the 86 covering the bergen-layfayette portion then go to newport...But that was the point i was trying to make before...If they was to modify a transit line it should have been the 81 not the 86

It was not announced on the website, but buses are now deviating via Passaic Avenue to serve a senior center over there.

Passaic Avenue or Pacific Avenue?

Jeez these NJT suburban neos are something else! They're bassy and fast as f--- and the seats are pretty nice but they're really lacking in the amenities dept. none of the overhead lights and blowers that i checked in the back half are actually working lmao. The front half and ONE pair of seats in the rear have this newer style(?) panel retrofitted on that probably works.

Also there's no heat blowing around in here, it's freezing inside...

As a busfan, jfc what a bus! But as a rider.... yeesh

I rode my first neoplan on the 158 this week. Ride was kind of meh.  The Suburban seats were ok though. 

Also slightly changing topics I kinda find it a bit funny how about 50% of the neoplans basically serve fort lee-NY routes with the other half in the central district for the 13 and 39. I get why but I never really payed attention to the neoplans or the entire NJ fleet like that since the fleet got mostly bland ever since the last of the RTS were retired. The most interesting the fleet gets is when I get a different model of the MCI whenever I use the 190 or 308.

With any luck there'll be a more "diverse" distribution once all the xd60s come in. I can think of a few routes that need them but rarely get them (looking at you, 126...)

Beyond the 13/39 and their endless line of variants, the 70 usually gets neos on sundays. 320/321 on rare occasions too

---

Anyone know if the 153 gets neos? I never remember to check my bus now when its 4 daily trips are running lmao. I would assume it gets MCIs due to the nature of the route but since it's essentially a super express 158/159 (well, super express in that it only serves the fort lee portions of those routes) there could be a chance a neo gets interlined onto there?

All trips should be MCIs on the 153. And I know the 126 used to have neoplans. Don't what happened to that.

The 126 was using Neoplans a long time ago due to super storm "Sandy" and NJT's dumbness for leaving some of its trains in low lying flood areas which messed up the equipment badly. That's when NJT diverted some Neoplans to the 126 line to help with the Hoboken Train station crushes along with buses they borrowed from Septa and I think Dart (Delaware).

Anybody please correct me if I'm wrong.

Also the option order of the XD60s may see service time on the bus lines 126 and possibly 107 in the future. Route 126 is a given. Them Nabis can barely handle those crush loads of riders. 126 during rush hour is crrrazy!

The 308 is one weird route...I don't understand why during the AM, theres two 308 services, one from New York to Six Flags and one from Newark to Six Flags yet during the PM theres only one which is from Six Flags to New York via Newark, when most of the time it skips Newark all together.
