What are buses doing along the Hempstead Tpke

Recommended Posts

Today I saw a CS Orion V going down Springfield Bl, so I followed it, and it went past Belmont on the Hempstead Tpke. It was gonna go far out, so I turned around, and saw a Jamaica RTS-06 and another CS Orion V driving out to LI.

 

What were these doing there?

Last year I was on my way to Niagara Falls and saw 10 hybrid orions (with NYCT decal) goining down interstate 86 or 87

 

Prolly coming from the plant since Orion manufactures them upstate. Since it was last year, probably the 2007 07s.

Ummm no the buses on LI are not driver training......try LIRR shuttles so get it straight before you assume.

 

Pablo has a lot of info, and is a large contributor of knowledge to the site, so if he says it's driver training, it just may be.

 

This community is close knit and we want it to be friendly spirited, so please think about your wording before you post next time. Thank you! :P

I dunno man, I've seen driver training out there with buses from CS.

 

I know they use buses from CS for LIRR Shuttles, which I forgot to mention, but I've also seen driver training being done, mainly in Hempstead (and they have been seen when there is no LIRR bustitution at the moment).

Ok, according to my sources, (an LIRR employee) there was driver training in LI as well as Hempstead LIRR shuttles due to track work. So technically Pablo was right as well!! So let's not assume that someone else is assuming until we have all the facts! Thanks for the input. No one is trying to jump down your throat, but we are all courtious when corresponding with each other here, and it will be done respectfully, or not at all.

There were even pictures of it in LI as a Training Bus on subchat. When the takeover is complete, we might see some drastic fleet changes throughout the system.

Thats understandable because my brother as well as many other TA operators I know put up off-the-wall signs when on a deadhead for the same reasons as you, but at this particular time (MTA)just happened to be doing driver training in Long Island. Therefore both of you guys were right.

OK once again ENY CS does not do driver training on LI

The only training you will get there is line training

I am an operator in CS and what part of we dont have any training in LI dont you understand.

If there was I would have been told that I need to take it.

Ok so can you explain why 618 was doing training in Long Island??? Last I knew that was still a Stengel Orion V, and MTA has been doing training all over the place over the last 8 months.

OMG What part of LIRR shuttle are you missing out on?

Are you a B/O?

I was asking a question, stop getting your panties in a bunch and show some maturity. I'm not a Bus Operator, so I was asking you since you claim you are one.
