That's unacceptable. RTO won't run trains with graffiti tags on them, and Buses should have standards as well. That is an embarrassment to the MTA. I can't imagine they are that short on buses that they had to use this RTS without at least giving it a quick paint job.

What I'd like to know is why Queens depots in general has such crappy maintenance?  Aside from Staten Island, I'd say Queens has the worst maintenance.

Um no. It isn't going anywhere. It was just overhauled. All it needs is a repaint and it will be fine.

Damn, I bet the ride is worse than its appearance.

 

 

It is sad to see a bus or a train in bad state. :(

How old is this bus ?

Nearing 17 years old.

I know its sad to see a bus or a train in that old state. Everything dies, and so will this RTS lol.

Something not pleasing to see.

Aside from LGA and a few CP buses, the rest of Queens is fine.

No it's Just LGA they just suck at keeping buses

In good condition. The reason why some JA buses look like that is because most of those buses came from LGA. The RTS's at JFK came from QV.

How a 17 year old RTS looks like crap when there are 30 year old GM Fishbowls all over Canada in far better shape is beyond me.

 

Nice photo, just a shame the bus photographed looks so pitiful.

Not all Queens depots have bad maintenance, just LGA really. I know CS has good maintenance because they're keeping their Orion Vs alive which are running well. QV and JA have good maintenance, but it just sucks that JA is getting some of LGA's hand-me downs.

Not quite....CP has more than just a few buses.... They actually send at least some of their express buses up to Yonkers to get fixed up by me... Crappola maintenance....

lol... But I will admit that Queens has to have some of the oldest buses, esp. those hand-me-down Orions from Bee-Line...  <_<
