    I'm a transit buff that loves all things trains and buses.

    I tend to largely focus on Queens when busfanning, specifically around Astoria and Long Island City.

  4. I wonder if it's a combination of the 0600 and 88## (former Atlantic City units).
  5. Photo from a FB group. No, I don't know the status of the buses.
  6. The first 2 Gilligs are now on property. https://www.instagram.com/p/CPeEa-3Hdmb/
  7. The MTA will be increasing the number of the electric bus purchase from 45 to 60: https://www.amny.com/transit/mta-says-45-to-60-more-buses-in-recent-procurement-will-be-zero-emissions/amp/

  11. NICE is requesting bids for 6 electric buses. https://www.nicebus.com/About-NICE/Procurement
  12. Back in April, the C train went scheduled to go to the Bronx for the first time since 1998. It was also the first time the C used the R68 in regular service (outside of a rare one-off).
