Another RTS Bus has come to West Farms Depot.Possibly(Read it)

Recommended Posts

i dont know how to explain this. But this morning In my point of view we all can tell this bus has came from an (MTA)Bus company. I though it was a Baisley Park Depot in Queens. But in my own eyes the same bus that i just posted has a East NewYork Depot Sticker on it that says (MTA)Bus on it. I could of take another photo shot at the same bus to show some proof that is has a ENY Depot logo like it came straight from Brooklyn, but my sidekick frozed up on me and the New flyer Bx19 bus and other trucks got in my way.I guess that same bus was an East New York Depot in Brooklyn for a short period of time.Until the company decided to moved that bus to West Farms Depot in the Bronx as is it looks like is going to the WF Depot shop. And couple hours later in the afternoon i see it running on West Farms Road on the West Farms line along the Bx35,Bx27 and the Bx11 to the last stop on West Farms Road. But it wasnt in service. I guess is now the 8th RTs bus thats is now part the West Farms Depot Roster. The (MTA) New York City is bringing and taking back their throwback RTS Bus. thats all for today....

hey thats the Bx19, I caught parked at southern blvd and tremont today :) whats the Bus number, so I can verify..

 

I got pics of that baby :) ~

 

But why is it an MTA Bus rather then a MTA NYC Bus..

 

Also I dunno if this bus is on the 19 cuz of an Articulated bus is on for repairs? Or a CNG on the 19 =S

Well that's what you think...

 

Great photo, I'm sure they're just coming to West Farms to end up getting retired, we are only getting all the old buses sent to the Bronx that are getting retired soon it seems.

Over here where I live in washington hts, I see a lot of RTS running on the Bx11 35 and 36 lines than usual. One I saw had a LaG sticker on it... and some of the others had no sticker!

Oddly 8157 was on the 31 around 9PM at Westchester Square, if only I didn't miss that bus. Atleast I cought 416 instead, fastest Orion V I know of.

I saw 2 different RTSs on the Bx33 today. One of them had a different font for the number on the rear.

 

You mean like a big font?

 

Did it have that triangle-thing in the back and did it just say (MTA) Bus?
