Found this map while searching for the 5A's stop in Middle Island on google. It's from 2002 (but only includes everything west of Riverhead). The forks though, stayed relatively the same, so it's not like there are major changes there.

BTW, where does the 5A stop at King Kullen. Google maps shows a 5A that changes signage and looks like about to pick up someone near a green lawn opposite the pet food store. Is this where all buses stop?

That I don't know. The stop at King Kullen was added a few years ago after the county finally decided to move the terminal away from the long abandoned KMart, and the exact stop wasn't said. I always thought it was near the entrance/exit of King Kullen like the 6B stop at the soon to be closed King Kullen at Independence Plaza in Selden.

 

The KMART building was finally torn down within the past year, or at least supposed said so, after years of just sitting there falling into disrepair and squatters breaking in and nearly burning it down trying to stay warn during the winter.

I took it once last month, and there weren't many people. The was like one pickup or dropoff along Montauk Highway.

Heard once that one of the 40ft buses was assigned to the S20.

 

However I'm not sure if it was because of ridership or just however EBT assigns buses

Was it rush hour?

What size do they normally use?

Normally before the extension to Montauk Hwy and the addition of a second bus, the S20 is assigned an 35ft bus.

 

Except for the 4 40ft Gillig BRT's, and the 9 40ft Orion VII's (All the 40ft except for the 1001-1002 were suppose to be for the S1 only; 1001-1002 were only for the S33); EBT's fleet is mostly 35 Ft Phantoms and Orion VII's.

Bwahahahaaaaa....sorry, just can't help it.

 

PHANTOMS?????  From an "upscale" area agency???

 

Jeebus, that's soooooo 1990s, man.  SMART will probably have some 35 2002-3 Gillig low-floors available for sale soon.  May be a little vultured for seats/parts, but I'm sure SCT could scrounge some pennies to get them.

 

If you got those old MOFOs running around, no wonder residents could care less if the bus service runs or not (funding-wise).

 

Just ...... WOW. :blink:

Depending on the price of a Low Floor back then Vs. the Phantom model, if they went with Low Floor Gilligs then Suffolk couldn't have cannibalized parts from the early 90's Phantoms they were replacing in 2005. (Which it's possible they did since they seemed cannibalized parts from the 1996 Phantoms they retired in 2010) 

 

Residents don't care about SCT because they all have cars, so they probably feel that If they can afford a car why should they car about public transportation.

Found something that sounded somewhat interesting in the link below (dated March 1999):

http://www.southamptontownny.gov/DocumentCenter/Home/View/796

 

So I was reading this document, and looked on page 23, and found this tidbit on the routes available to residents in the Town of Southampton:

 

 


The S-94 via Montauk Highway, through Water Mill and Bridgehampton (summer only).

 

Can anyone confirm if this is true.

I don't know for sure, but I think it could have been true. I remember reading or seeing somewhere were the 10C and S94 use to be diffrent than they are now. I can't say for sure but the S94 use to be longer an year round, with the Montauk Point being summer only and the 10C was a summer only route.

Got this response from Jimbo:

The S-94 runs from Montauk Village to Montauk Point. This is a loop run, only during the summer (July & August). The route is operated by Hampton Jitney since it began. Surprisingly, this route was not cancelled during the recently announced cut backs. note: Hampton Jitney and Sunrise Coach Lines operate Suffolk County routes together under Twin Forks Transit.

Thats the S94 currently.

 

The 1993 Suffolk County Transit system wide map lists the S94 as going between Southampton and Montauk. As a summer only route.

 

The Montauk Village to Montauk Point route was the 10C back then. The 10C was a summer only route then as well.

I circled part of what is listed as the S94 on the 1993 System map. I followed what is marked to Wainscott because it was the last point that was clearly marked.

 

Two things of Note. The S94 isn't shown as a transfer route at the East Hampton Railroad Station, and they don't clearly defined on the map where the S94 is suppose to end.

You can make out 10C over by the Montauk Lighthouse area.

Didn't the S94 go to Southampton Village at one point? I have a map that shows it ending at Southampton College WAY back in the late 80s.

I've seen it on the 1993 map, the link was supposed to show what could be made out on the '93 map (guess the link did't work). It just didn't show where it went exactly in Southampton.

For the NYCTForums, you use BBCode. It looks like you use the Embed code.

Thanks. I used the same code as I did for BusTalk, and I wasn't aware it didn't work until I looked at TransitMan's post.

 

Like I said before the '93 map didn't mark the S94 after Wainscott, so I couldn't follow it to were it ended in Southampton, also I wasn't sure exactly were it ended in Montauk.

The S94 went to LIU-Southampton College back in the late 1980s according to a map that I have to find. Since then, it was truncated to Water Mill?...then East Hampton and now Montauk Village.

Ah, the '93 map just says Southampton, nothing more.

The S94 went to LIU-Southampton in 1993. For some reason whoever made up the map placed the 94's square (to signify it's destination) on the black line meant to show where the shore and not next to the 10A Square. (Like what is done in other places were two or routes end in the same location) 

 

Did the S94 serve Southampton Hospital?
