    Unfortunately not. It's still spacing out in some threads and I'm not sure why... this one doesn't space out but most OC threads will space out for whatever reason. Thanks anyway.

    Strange, I wonder if you try a different theme if it might be any different.

    The image uploader seems to be giving this error:

    It has been affecting all images uploaded since 14:37 Nov.7 - around 25 images and files are affected.

    Thanks for letting me know. I've fixed the problem and any images that had that error should load successfully after a page refresh.

    If there are any that don't generate properly, just let me know with a link and I can look into it further.

    For some reason, the search function on here doesn't work properly. Even if I type a single word that is guaranteed to appear all over the forum (i.e. "bus") just to test the search function, it still gives no results depending on the word(s) used (i.e. "bus" doesn't give results, but "buses" does). Also would be nice to get rid of the "Please wait X seconds before attempting another search", if possible.

    I think there is a minimum of 4 or 5 characters in the search box.

    Being mostly on my phone and sometimes needing to adjust my signature (where my rules for using my papercraft can be seen) as I still have the idea in mind, I no longer have the option of moving to the desktop site versus the old version of the site. 

    Is it possible to re-enable this option, so that we can make full use of the site on the go? 

    Thanks in advance. 

    This is typically done in the browser itself and not something on the CPTDB side (though something may have changed with our themes). Give this a try - it worked for me on Google Chrome on my Android phone:

    DALLAS & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FlixMobility (“the Company”), global mobility provider of the FlixBus and FlixTrain brands, announced today it has acquired Greyhound Lines, Inc. (“Greyhound”), the largest provider of long-distance bus transportation in the United States, from FirstGroup plc. This acquisition marks another important step in FlixMobility’s vision to provide easy-to-use, affordable, and environmentally friendly travel for consumers across the globe.

    The purchase brings together FlixBus’ innovative global technology and shared mobility expertise with Greyhound’s iconic nationwide presence and experience, creating a company that will be better able to service the needs of intercity bus travelers in the U.S. Intercity bus lines were a lifeline during the pandemic for communities and essential workers, and as economies re-open, they will be a tremendous driver for sustainable growth across the country. The FlixBus Global network serves over 2,500 destinations in 36 countries outside of the U.S. with 400,000 daily connections. Greyhound currently connects approximately 2,400 destinations across North America with nearly 16 million passengers each year.

    André Schwämmlein, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FlixMobility, said, “Consumers across North America are increasingly seeking affordable, comfortable, smart and sustainable mobility solutions. A compelling offering will draw significantly more travelers away from private cars to shared intercity bus mobility. Together, FlixBus and Greyhound will be better able to meet this increased demand. As our business continues to recover from the effects of the pandemic, we will replicate the success that we have already achieved in 36 countries outside of the U.S. with our innovative and customer centric approach.”

    Buses as a sustainable and accessible alternative are now more important than ever. Fluctuations in the cost of gas, the recent escalation of car prices, and climate change concerns have increased the interest of many consumers in finding alternatives to individual car usage. FlixMobility is operating at the forefront of this global mega-trend, and the acquisition of the iconic Greyhound business will help the company realize its vision to offer sustainable and affordable travel to everyone.

    Jochen Engert, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FlixMobility, commented, “The continuous expansion of our services through partnerships and acquisitions has always been an integral part of our growth strategy to build our global presence. The acquisition of Greyhound is a major step forward in the US. The FlixBus and Greyhound teams share a common vision to make smart, affordable and sustainable mobility accessible to all."

    David Martin, Executive Chairman, FirstGroup plc said: “The sale of Greyhound to FlixMobility is part of our portfolio rationalization strategy to refocus FirstGroup on its leading UK public transport businesses. The strength of Greyhound is its people, and I would like to thank them for their unwavering commitment to their customers and communities. As part of FlixMobility, I am confident that Greyhound will be well placed to continue to grow and develop their iconic services for many years to come.”

    FirstGroup has reached agreement with Neptune Holding Inc. (the 'Buyer'), a corporation 100% controlled by FlixMobility, to sell Greyhound Lines, Inc., the US Greyhound operating business (including its vehicle fleet, trademarks, and certain other assets and liabilities) for an enterprise value on a debt-free / cash-free basis of c.$46m plus unconditional deferred consideration of $32m with an interest rate of 5% per annum.

    Your History page of the Nassau Inter County Express (NICE) page erroneously states the system was previously owned by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).  This is incorrect.  In 1973 Nassau County purchased the assets and routes of the private transit bus operators in the county and signed a contract with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to have the bus system operated under an MTA subsidiary called the Metropolitan Suburban Bus Authority (MSBA) that was created by an act of the New York State legislature.   Under this agreement Nassau County was responsible for operating subsidies and all capital expenditures.  In the late 1990s as part of an MTA wide effort for the rebranding of services the operations of the MSBA became known as Long Island Bus.  In 2010 as a result of decades long disputes over system finances and the quality of services, Nassau County decided to embark on an effort to pursue alternative operating arrangements for the system.  This effort led to the awarding of a contract to Veolia Transportation (now Transdev) to operate the system commencing on January 1 2012 under the NICE system brand.  Oversite of the contract with Transdev is performed by the Nassau County Bus Transit Committee, a 5 member board appointed by the county legislature and county executive.
