I'm noticing there are a lot more RTS out On West Farms Lines. How many they have now over there? I'm a RTS head!

Also I noticed since the Bx55 no longer operates on artics I'm seeing more on the Bx36!

There are a lot, but not as much as the CNG VII there. I got on bus number #8807 at 5:15PM from West Farms Sq - SB Bronx 21. Must of come from Manhattan.. maybe MV as there was a MaBSTOA Manhattan Bus map there.

 

Im Also noticing that some of the Manhattan 100 (Based out of KB) is running on D60HFs, dunno if those were used by the Bx55 as it was kb i think and getting the Orion V off M100) Any confirmation?

Yes, they have a lot across the street with just RTS. But old 8000's. I won't mind driving them if they had the 9000 series. The Bx55 Artics are in Manhattan. The Bx36 use Artics for those pulling in on their first half or if it's one trip in the afternoon. :P

When was this? Because I've seen it all week on KB routes. I wonder if KB has a school trip on the bx11 or something.

 

The M100 is always a mix of artics and O5's but I believe they made more runs use Artics. Somehow the bx9 still has at least 4 runs using O5s but I've seen artics on the bx3 a few times.

I actually saw that last week. The Bx11 was on 161 But I did see the front LED. The back said Bx11 thou so maybe it wasn't but that's what's I saw! And I been seeing artiics on the Bx3. Not as much as I been seeing Bx36 on artics thou!

#8788 - #8807 ( now at West Farms depot.)

 

why long stretch billboard ad are still put on #8788 - #8807.

i thought long stretch billboard ad were supposed to be removed

when it came to the bronx. ( i mean the driver side)

#8788 - #8807 are not in manhattan. they are in bronx.

what is the point keeping long stretch billborad ad or broadway billboard

ad on #8788 - #8807. ( i mean driver side)
