Does Flatbush Depot Have An Bus Shortage

Recommended Posts

Every Time I Calculate The Amount Of Buses On Rush Hour Flatbush Seems To Have Cleared Out All The Buses For Rush Hour. I Look At The Current Schedule For Flatbush's Routes and Used MTA Bus Time To See How Many Buses Are Out. Should Flatbush Get More Buses?

I don't know how accurate is this. However, I do agree with trainfan on this. Most depots clear out during AM rush unless there are repairs or other maintenance issues on the buses.

I think you need a 20% spare factor if I'm not mistaken. So if the depot is completely devoid of buses, that means there's none available in case one breaks down.

Yeah I Know But Some Depots Have Excess Buses For Example Queens Village Has 68 Buses In Depot ENY Has 66 Buses Fresh Pond Has 59 Grand Ave Has 36 And Ulmer Pk Has 64

Mostly They Could SBS Wrapped Buses If That Happens Since Flatbush Cleares Out All Their Lcl Buses Edited by A Former New Yorker

I call BS on your method... Bus Time should not be used to determine how many buses are out at once...

 

(also whats with capitalizing every word?)

Please stop capitalizing every word as if you're writing newspaper headlines. It's annoying and it makes you seem less credible.

FLA is not short they have more than enough buses.

Well on rush hour all the lcl buses and almost all their  SBS Buses Are Cleared Out. This Might Be An Problem If A Few Lcl Buses Break Down Or Are In A Crash.
