MTA Bus Dream Pick

Recommended Posts

Supposed you were in charge of the January pick (what buses you want to have and leave), what would you do.

 

This is what I would do (this don't include Express Bus)

 

QUEENS

Baisley Park Depot

1999 Orion 5.501: 6070-6119

2007 Orion 7.501 Hybrid: 3500-3523, 3759-3783

 

Far Rockaway Depot: Q11, Q21, Q22, Q35, Q41 (s/w JFK), Q93LTD (to Green Acres)

1999 Orion 5.501: 6040-6069

2007 Orion 7.501 Hybrid: 3575-3599, 3749-3758

 

JFK Depot: Q6, Q7, Q8, Q9, Q10, Q37, Q40, Q41 (s/w FR), Q60, Q89

1998-99 Orion 5.501 CNG: 7226-7285, 8568-8581, 9827-9899, 9901-9999

 

BROOKLYN

Spring Creek Depot: B6 (Split with UP), B82, B83 (Split with ENY), B103

The B100 would be transferred to Flatbush

1999 Orion 5.501: 6120-6230

Which Orion NGs are you talking about? They are No Orion NGs at College Point, only CNG Orion 5.501s.

Um...okay. Three things:

 

1. What routes are coming out of Baisley Park?

2. What the HELL is the Q93 (and LIMITED for that matter)

3. You're going to need a HELL OF A LOT more buses than 55 at Far Rockaway. Between the Q11, Q22, Q35 and Q41...that's your 55 buses right there. The heck with Q21 and Q93. Also, you need spare buses.

 

 

NIce thought though. I wouldn't mind seeing this movement.

The B6 don't need to be split with Spring Creek @ all.....it needs to stay with Ulmer Park where it belongs and also doing good with!

don't mean to bust your bubble but lga cannot have ng buses because of the heating system in the facility. that's the main reason they were transferred to cp in the first place. it's an old facility with the old heating system that is basically a large flame with a fan that blows extremely hot air, as opposed to a heater that blows hot air with no flame, i know there's a name for the two(2) heating systems i just don't know them. lol.
