NYC Transit and MTA Bus in Connecticut

Recommended Posts

Seems the MTA  been loaning Buses from various depots to shuttle people from Bridgeport to Stamford in the absence of Metro-North service. Along with CT transit and some others. MCI's mix LFA's and even XD60's  here's some in action.

I wonder which B/O's got assigned to these runs. Is it all overtime? 

 

It's nice to see all this inter-agency work between MTA's various divisions

What depots? Is every depot in the city involved in this?

 

....anyways I always wanted to ride those Arctics on a long stretch of highway... too bad Arctics only run on really slow routes most of the time

Xcelsiors in Stamford? Boy that should be a real PITA.

 

Don't see how, CT Transit has their 40ft Xcelsiors out there too.

Local buses out there from NYC ( Im sure they cleaned the buses), compared to Express Buses. The buses aren't like the MNRR seats (that's of least concern), and the fact that its not fit for the highway (if it has the governors).

The LFA in the video seemed to be moving fairly quick. The Local Buses seem to mostly be New Articulate types. Riding them on the Bx12 in the Bronx on I95 and on Pelham Parkway them seem to get fairly good speed.

It looks like MTA Bus, NYCT Bus, CT Transit, DATCO, PeterPan, Greater Bridgeport Transit Authority, 

I even see MTA's NOVA LFS Artic.

Most likely they raised the governors on the local buses so they can safely go on the highway

Oh, they're fit for the highway. I mean, they got here somehow.

I counted 15 over the two days. Only one not listed on the roster is Charleston.

I-95 could handle articulated bus since there are trailer truck, double trailer truck or triple trailer truck I have seen during my MegaBus trip to Boston with 2 Japanese friends.
