There is no need to create new topic. We have Bus Random Thread for that.

Unnecessary.

Artics on the Q12, to me, means service decreases for the Northern Blvd corridor (east of Flushing) altogether.... Meaning, this won't end up solely affecting Q12 riders...

They want less buses on the road.

Now they want to do this, they should have done this when they still had the lfsa. It's likely it's going to be xd60's though. This would push out a good chunk of next gens.

........ interesting

I’m going to say something about this rumor and it’s something that you may not like to hear. 

CS is supposed to be closing. There’s no way that the Q12 is supposed to be considered to artic conversion and or implementation at this time.

Also, where are you going to get buses from. Right now there’s no extra artics to accommodate for this.

Just so you know, bus operators are sometimes the last ones to know what's going on.

I wouldn't take what he said seriously.

Hold your horses there, champ.


The Q12 at one point was considered for artic conversion before the Q44 SBS was implemented. After the Q44 SBS was implemented, they wanted to test artics on the Q12 but they never did.

Reliable source? I sometimes ride the Q26, when it operates during rush hours, and with everybody taking the Q27 it's going to be a disaster. This is the primary reason why they kept this route, they just cut the route during the mid-day and evenings when practically nobody would be on the bus.

Official by who's standards? Until it actually shows up in the pick documents at the depot or in the board meeting materials, it's not official.

For example, a bus operator could say that the Q48 is going artic and its supposed to happen in the summer. That doesn't actually make it official.

*sees thread title* Bundle up, people! It's looking like an icebox!

Seriously, as busy as it is, it'll be amazing to find artics in the cards anytime soon. Now can we please kill this thread?

You're not helping out at all.

Just so we are on the same page, some examples of this can be viewed here and here. Note that both of these lengthy documents are from the MTA website, respectively.
