A tripper is basically when a depot has a run on a route that doesn't normally come from said depot. Example in the morning MHV has 2 runs on the M27/50 which are MJQ routes. In some cases trippers are school runs (they run to/from JHS and HS)

 

The pic of above isn't a tripper. 5716 was sent to West Farms at the end of June and they never changed the stickers.

Gun Hill does no trippers on any other depots routes (AFAIK), but KB and WF does do trippers on some GH routes, and WF does a Bx1 tripper for KB (afternoons, if they still do it). KB does for Gun Hill, Bx16, 28, 39, and it seems 40 now, along with the Bx12 (summer only). WF does a Bx40 for Gun Hill, sometimes with a CNG........
