MTA Bus Operations: On-board screens and announcements

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to pull up the details for the contracts. It appears as it was definitely a split award, but I'm not sure exactly how it was divided up.

Question, which version is it where the next stop and the ones following are mentioned? 

Version 4, which is the one made by Luminator. However, buses 570-589 do have those upcoming stops for the B100.

They can't seem to get the stops right on the S57. Port-Richmond bound it just freezes after the hospital. At least it's better than telling you the wrong stops.

You should gather a list of about 5-10 buses and then post them at once. No need to clutter the thread posting one bus at a time, there's no race. You're the only one keeping track out there as I am not home currently. According to people I know that work out there, every bus they've been assigned has the screens so I'm pretty sure most of the buses have them by now.

So I've noticed that literally half of MCH buses have the clever device screen that are on but none of them say the announcements and on MHV buses as well don't say announcements do they have to program it??

8239, 8280, 8288 and 8311 all have screens.

Are there plans to put screens on the 3G's, the other SI NG's and other express buses?

They're replacing the SBS NGs with the model that Statty posted above.

Version 2 seems to work good with Limited and SBS routes. Seems too delayed to be for local use. If the contract is split, would've been nice to give V2 to buses that are gonna be used strictly for SBS. Such as the XN60s, the new LFSAs, ENYs XD40s and the next order of XD60s for SBS use. 

Local buses should've received Version 4 because it responds quicker for stops that have a shorter distance. 

Honestly they should've gone with Version 4 all along because it would've been perfect for all bus models. For the XD40s, you could've position them like the C40LFs, for XD60s/XN60s you can position the first small screen right behind the driver, the second right after the middle door on the ceiling, and the third right before the middle door on the ceiling. For the LFS would've had two wide screens positioned just how they are now. 

Just my two cents, I feel like nothing gets thought through with the MTA. Just do and keep it moving. Who decides on the types of screens and the placement of the screens in the buses? Is it one person or a group of people?

8235, 8267, 8278, 8286, 8306, 8308 and 8316 have screens.

Most (If not, all) of the LFS buses at Castleton and Yukon have screens.

Right thats what I'm saying because I also have 8241-8243, 8247-8252 with screens. Might as well update the entire list. 

I wonder why Charleston isn't installing the screens?

So far only 8136 at Charleston has screens installed, but aren't functional at the moment.

This will be my all time favorite video of Version 2 during the test phase. This is literally perfect for the M15 SBS, announces stops and TRANSFERS at a nice timing in between stops. I wonder how the screens are doing now? 

Why doesn't Version 2 announce the stops on the newer models?
