(5)(6)(7)(J) Shuttles + Novabus RTS Lost Files

Recommended Posts

Various weekend construction has (J) train service suspended between Jamaica Center, Queens and Crescent Street/Broadway Junction, Brooklyn, as well between Hewes Street, Brooklyn and Essex Street, Manhattan. Shuttle buses provide alternate service for the closed segments along the line. Video clips were taken between 2016 and 2019. 


Taken back in 2016. Weekend track work in the Bronx had the IRT Dyre Avenue (5) Line suspended between East 180th Street and Dyre Avenue, also on the IRT Pelham (6) Line between Parkchester and Pelham Bay Park. Action was filmed at the East 180th Street and Pelham Parkway stations for the (5) shuttle bus and for the (6) shuttle bus at Parkchester. 


Taken back in 2014 & 2015. This is the final installment of the Novabus RTS-06 saga. The reason this video is called the lost files because I happened to found these videos sitting in my Google photos and wanted to share this last piece of RTS nostalgia. 

These RTS units were in service for a good 19-22 years, until retirement between 2016 and 2019. In this this video, we'll take a look at the last high-floor series making trips in Queens and Manhattan. Its just footage clips that weren't added to the RTS Memorial Day tribute video. There's also an on-board video of the RTS in Southeast Queens.

I do want to apologize for the crappy resolution on most of these videos. So, without further ado, please enjoy this RTS lost files video on this Flashback Friday. 


Taken back in 2016 & 2018. Weekend track had the IRT Flushing Line suspended between 74th St-Broadway and 34th Street-Hudson Yards. So, shuttle buses provided alternate service in both Queens and Manhattan. Please enjoy.
