What your dream MTA bus roster?

Recommended Posts

My Dream roster would be that every type of RTS GMC/TMC/Nova/MTS would be running in Flatbush and Ulmer park. And Jackie Gleason would be 100% New flyer buses with the C40LF, some LFRs and some artics for the B35 and B68.

ok heres my dream roster!

 

RTS' will be the backbone of the fleet. All Boros. The New Flyer artics will be where they currently are now with them also serving Queens and Brooklyn. O7NG's and LFS/LFS Artics will serve routes with a high volume of elderly and handicapped ridership. now for express routes i would use Flxible Metro-E's. Yes. I said Flxible Metro-E's. Suburban models with rear doors.

 

LIBus would see O5's and MCI Classics

MY dream roster would be a bit weird, but still interesting. I d9on't know all the depots, so I'll just list it like this:

Manhattan:

-Mostly 1979-1995 RTS, many GMC w/ rollsigns

-Articulated Ikarus 280.26 for crosstown/heavy-use lines

-Some Jelcz M11 and Ikarus 260.04 here and there

-10-20 Jelcz PR110M

Bronx:

-Many GMC RTS and many Ikarus 260.04 (definitely on BX7/10/20)

-Ikarus 280.26 and Orion Articulated for heavy-use lines

-A few Orion Vs here and there

-20 to 30 Jelcz PR110M and M11

Queens:

-TMC/GMC RTS; moderate amount (definitely Q38/67)

-MANY Ikarus 260.04 and Jelcz M11/PR110M (definitely Q11/19/29/38/45/53/54/67/69

-A few Orion Vs

- 5 to 15 Ikarus 280.26

Brooklyn:

-Moderate amount of TMC RTS

-Moderate amount of Ikarus 260.04 and Jelcz M11/PR110M (roughly 25%- 45%/30%)

-Some Orion Vs (the kind that Triboro ran, with the soft seats)

-10 Ikarus 280.26

Staten Island:

-All Jelcz PR110Ms (its a quiet borough; let them have a quiet bus)

Express Buses:

-Mostly Ikarus 250 coach series (most likely the 256, the one w/ quad headlights and rear-mounted RABA D2156 engine; to heck with those MCI coaches, I can't stand them)

-Jelcz L11/PR110L and IL

-Jelcz PR110D (regular Polish engine, SW680/165)

-Jelcz D120 (same bus as PR110D, except with a Soviet engine; LIAZ ML 637)

-Autosan H9-20/21/35

For me, the Gleason depot would have their 8500s back and Grand Avenue would toss their hybrids for the nice lovely ones over at ENY. Let ENY have those 2005 hybrids.

For My Select Bus Service vehicles, I would have bike racks and install bike compartment on all MCI Coach buses.

 

For airport routes, I would have luggage rack and more wider spaces.
