As ENY gets More RTS', Several Routes Ignored Orionwise

Recommended Posts

I think that its nice that the East New York Depot is getting some 88xxs/84xxs again, but I can't help but notice that these buses are coming in and it is sure to make some buses that have FAILED to show Hybrid Revenue along its depot, more so than already.

 

While the 84/85/88xxs come to ENY, the Hybrids that are already there fail to appear on the B14 (since they first arrived) and the B17 (never had a single hybrid onboard-EVER!!!!!!!!!! The B42 also fails to see the benefits that are the 2006 Orion VIIs. This makes no sense since the B15, B25, B45, B65, B83, Q24 and Q56, B7 and B82- the most packed route in all of Brooklyn sees Hybrids but none for the B14, B17, and B42.

 

Does anyone know why these three bus routes will get these TMCs but will not see any hybrids anytime soon?

I agree, but B42 is a short line, so maybe they should get Orions every summer.

The B39 and B51 are small routes also, but they stil gets hybrids, whether the route calls for them or not.

I think it has to do with a tight turn on the B14, I have not one clue for the other two routes mentioned.

Then does that mean that the B14 will switch depots for the purpose of a narrower bus? If so, then Flatbush or Gleason will do just fine.

It's staying in ENY but they will keep RTS running on that route for a good while. I wonder what will run on that route when NG's finish arriving.

I live by the B12, B14, and the B15 and thought of the same thing. Maybe the seniors dont want them on that line? This is truly a mystery for me.

It seems like half of the Hybrids are on the B12.

 

The B42 does run a hybrid once in a while. I saw one (I believe 6827) on there about two weeks ago.

 

With the B14/17, there are sharp turns on this route that prevent them from putting them in service. I remember the 14 having a lot of hybrids before they placed them into other lines. And the community were not happy with the Hybrids (they said it was smaller, but I don't see how).

 

Also they place them into the routes that they feel would best be fitted for Hybrids.

Thank you. I forgot the B12!!!!!! That and the B82 almost clear the entire hybrids from other routes.

 

 

And, if there are too narrow turns for the B14 and the B17, then what the hell will they do when the depots lose all of their RTS'? Perhaps Fresh pond or Grand will come running.

Referring to the B82 being the most packed 'as a ENY route', correct?

If ENY banned the O7s from B14 route because of an dislike issue, then the same should occur with other busier routes, such as the limited lines at FLA--40-ft. low floor HEV buses have no place on those routes. At all.

WTF, a few problems. There is no reliable source saying what depots are getting NGs, unless an actual B/O storms in here and tells us. And please correct your grammar.

Maybe they should make Brooklyn RTS free instead of Manhattan.

 

Hell no. The RTS' are one of the reasons that I love Brooklyn. They have a sense of belonging here. If Manhattan wants those damn "New Technology"-Only Shits then let them have it. But Do Not wish that upon Brooklyn's Division, which happens to be the largest Division of the Five Boroughs.

siwtch B51 route to Jackie Gleason depot

not East new york depot

 

The B51 originally came from Gleason but was switched because the Transit Authority banned C40LFs on the Manhattan Bridge. From there, they went to ENY, and now they are running out of Grand Avenue Depot. However, if JG received some Hybrids in exchange for the C40lfs that are there, a return to the Gleason Depot would be a welcome change.

 

Did anybody else notice that the Gleason Depot holds the most routes in Brooklyn at the moment? Why is that?

Why? Is it because they're governed at 40MPH or?

No, it's because CNG buses are banned from the Manhattan and I believe the Brooklyn Bridges.

 

As for the whole RTS free boroughs, it was supposed to be the Bronx Manhattan and SI.

 

At some point ENY will have to put hybrids on the B14 and B17. The same thing happened at CS where they refused to put them on the Q20/44 for months.

That doesn't answer my question, why were they banned from the bridges?

Lets get this straight.

 

1. There is no CNG buses banned on the Manhattan Bridge. NYPD did not make decision. It is the TA decision for some reason not to put CNG buses on the B51. Also, a year or two ago, one or two Spring Creek's Orion V CNG buses uses the Manhattan Bridge deadheaded back to the depot.

 

2. Brooklyn Bridge has restrictions that does not allowed buses and trucks exceeding the weight limit.
