The Buses in Far Rockaway Depot

Recommended Posts

Though I've never ridden the Far Rockaway depot routes, does that depot have a variety of ex-PBL RTS's?

 

Yes. They have the LAST ex-Green Lines TMC, ex-Jamaica Bus Lines TMCs, And Queens Surface RTS along with ex NYCTA 1990 Units.

Are there any pics of the Far Rockaway Depot? Also, what routes operate from that depot?

 

Photo here.. http://gallery.bustalk.info/displayimage.php?pid=10367&fullsize=1 There isn't much of an depot, the only thing thats indoors is the maintence barn, all the buses are stored outside in an storage lot. The crazy thing about that photo is that all the equipment in the picture (Except the Orion V) is retired. Their routes are Q11, Q21, Q22, Q35, QM15, QM16, QM17, QM18 and QM23.
