Jones Beach

Recommended Posts

My Cousin and I decided to go to Jones Beach to check out the new n87. I was in Freeport, and they have a bunch of extra buses (like 8 or 9). Anyone can go check it out. I have on-board videos of both (they will be eventually posted) Here's what we have so far:

Enjoy for now.

Not all 9 of those buses were for the n88. Probably one or two were, the others were on layover for other routes I'm sure. I'm going to Jones Beach tomorrow. I'll have photos and videos. Were there announcements on the n87? How many people on it? What time did you get the n87?

Yes, funny thing though, the major timepoints (like on the schedule) werent announced. There are n87 announcements. I took the n87 on the 2:00 PM interval

But the n41/n43/n19 had all left Freeport by the time my 88 arrived at Freeport. The n40 and n4 didnt go out, but there were 9 buses stationed  on the outskirts of the 88 bus stop.

I have the n88 video for you guys, the n87 video I'll post later tonight

 

 

 

The n88 to Jones Beach was SRO, going back, because it was still early, was empty, with like only 5 riders.

A layover is not always for the next run. They may have a layover of two or three runs or even more until its time for their run. NICE would never have enough drivers to have that many extra buses for the beach routes and still send all the Sunday routes out.
