Few bus stories and a company joke for those interested

Recommended Posts

LIB1481.jpg

 

 

that was actually my bus today whoever took this photo....cept i drive the bus with the wheel COMPLETELY flat....only way a real bus driver drives....you guys get such weird coincidences of almost catching me hahaha but you never manage to do it.....

 

lately i've been driving 1545 ex 308 but it's becoming a diff bus every day again

 

what i wanna kno is why noone harassed you at the yard for goin near all the busses lol but hey i wouldnt say anything if i saw ya i'd prob telll ya to get on the bus wit me while i pre trip it or something u could take some steering wheel shots haha....you guys need more of those with or without me....

 

anybody got questions bout new or old busses be glad to answer em.....i love drivin em lol that much i kno....

 

Also i figured i'd let you guys in on a company joke: when you take one of the old cummins busses out or one of the old CNGs the joke is that you take a roll of duct tape with you, because it'll fix anything on those beauties (yet theyre still my favorite.....had 1446 the other day was fast as shITTT! lol).....and the new company joke is that when you take a 1700 outta the yard you have to take model airplane glue with you bc they're made out of plastic haha

 

enjoy i got a lotta time lately so any questions bout any route any specific bus number you name it .....

okay,1446 (ex-183) is scrapped already,which is now 1446 and scrapped already since it was breaking down a lot.

 

All the 1991 Orion V retired already.

 

Also i heard soon all the LIB's Orion V CNG will be repainted to blue stripes expect for 1996 Orion V CNG, and some 1997 Orion V CNG since they are retiring anytime soon. I wonder when will the (MTA) repaint the Orion V CNG to blue stripes?

 

1456 (ex-193) has blue stripes but it retired recently.

um...1446 (ex-183) is at the eastchester yard getting scarpped,which got scrapped recently,that picture you saw is old.

 

If you go to the Eastchester Yard,you will see most of the 1991 Orion v and 1996-1997 Orion V CNG at the eastchester yard.

 

Well there are few 1996-1997 Orion V CNG left in service.
