My Orion VII NG impression.

Recommended Posts

The new buses that everyone's seems to rave about, I decided to check that out on the B49 on my way to school. You can push a button or pull the cord to signal for stop. It's basically a New Technology bus to me. Really neat!

Nice shots. I saw a NG fly by on Tuesday. They're really quiet. B)

 

Hmm, Push button, or pull cord. Now that's going to be a hard one everytime. :P

Nice...

Ha, NTB

 

NTB, yep, there's more automated announcements on that bus, if a passenger signals for stop, a woman voice says "Please exit through the rear door."

 

Nice pics!

 

Thank you.

 

Nice!

 

Thanks a lot.

Push button, Pull cord, and push the tape too. Three ways to signal for stop, I could be wrong about that, since I rode that type of bus for the first time. I like pulling the cord, for me personally. I don't pull too hard, I don't want to break it.

 

Nice, crisp and clear pix... Like the new busses, :(!

 

Yep, you should try riding them, they're really comfortable, except for the last row of seats, they're too high!

I marvelled at it while I was on the S53 just a few weeks ago.

That's cool, I didn't know about these types of buses until just last week. I had a friend talk about this model bus so much on the B49 and B44 buses, I'm like "Okay, I have to check this out once in for all!" I did and it was worth it. Oh yeah, lots of them are at Staten Island. Great. :cool:

Nice photos I like that 2nd one best

 

Thank you, well I'll admit, that's probably the best bus photo I've taken in a while, I haven't photographed buses too much since last summer.

The ones at Quill (3813 & 3817) tell the stops and announce it too. It shows the stop right under the stop request sign (the one above the windshield)

Excellent shots of the B49 NG's!

 

Thank you, I tried to take some interior photgraphs, but I didn't want to bother the bus operator nor the passengers enjoying the bus.

Oh displays the stop after the stop request sign? Neat, now I wish that was applicable in all of these models. I'd like to see that next time.

Yeah, and it announces the stop and all the buses that stop there.
