I was riding 6148 on the Q43 and it had stickers that it has modified bus

acceleratorAlso it acutally was accelerating differently from the other VIIs. Can anyone explained why they did this?

6148 is a Orion V, I think from KB or CAS... Did it accelerate faster or slower?

Some of the East New York hybrids have stickers that say that the acceleration of this bus has been modified.

I see those stickers on a lot of Manhattanville's 07's too!

Yes the VII's acceleration was modified to be slower. They use to accelerate so fast that elderly people would get hurt and fall down.... And some young/middle age people as well.....

Orion VIIs are in Spring Creek? :eek:

 

They shouldn't have modified the acceleration, aren't they still under warranty? Who cares if the elderly falls, they should've used access-a-ride...

The MTA doesn't want to get sued. So they made the buses slower. Also young people have fell down as well due to the accerleration of those overpriced Tissueboxes.

SC VII's are already slow.. esp the ones on the B103, those VII stuggle on the highway part of the route.

Young people fall down as well, they can't ride access a ride. The MTA doesn't want to sued by those people that fall down due to the acceleration of the tissuebox.

I still find them pretty jerky but I don't care as long as it's getting me from point A to point B, if you think VIIs are tissue boxes just ride a VI. VIIs = WAY better. Good thing they're not going to modify the VII CNGs, even though they jerk alot, one time someone fell on thier ass because #7665 was shifting (old lady but still I like how that bus kicks!).
