  1. Where would Yukon store the buses? Feel like there really isn't much space in that side lot on Forrest Hill Road for that and I doubt they really want to go back to keeping buses stored at the Eltingville Transit Center up the road.
  2. Disney Transport current update: Nothing new since before COVID. 5288 listed on the wiki page is the highest in the fleet. I saw 5285/6 so seems pretty close Fleet future: Wrapping all the buses for disney characters. Older buses are being wrapped but their wraps are not nearly as artistic. (Example: Mickey or Minnie Mouse will only have the character head fitting within one window). Minimal window coverage now with the wraps. No Novas have received any wraps as of yet. In fact they were not really running the Nova's much! 5000-5009 were running and are in the white with red. Seemed
  3. Sad thing to hear. Always a treat to see those flip dot 2002s from Yukon. They kept them looking well and running up until the end. Not bad getting around 19 years out of those.
  4. saw the 2002s still running earlier this week. Was really hoping nobody at the MTA would realize the 7 units there. As old as they are, they look better on the outside than some of the 5-7 year old Prevosts
  5. That's what I thought the option was. Take over of 23/24 from Academy Bus. Meanwhile it looks like academy changed out the buses on that route. Used to be The 2002-2004 MCI D4500s but lately have been seeing the Van Hool fleet numbers in 6400s.
  6. No mention of the 7 or so remaining D4500s at Yukon. Do those get replaced by new buses on this order or are they replaced by shifting of some of the 2015/2016 from Meredith as they get new ones with the shift over of their 2011 fleet to Bus Co.?
  7. What is the reason for moving buses off of staten island to other boroughs after they hit a certain age?
  8. hmmm interesting. Pretty sure these were the old graphics (red and purple) prior to character wraps. Are they wrapping over the old graphics like Disney+ or old movie wraps were done or are they removing the old graphics and placing these wraps flat on the paint. Was supposed to have been there about 2 weeks ago but due to COVID my job has prohibited traveling.
  9. Are all the first batch of Prevost's going to the bus company or will some go to transit? If all going to bus company then they can easily take all the flip dots out. 7 flip dots are remaining in transit which are all at Yukon in SI.
  10. I thought there was talk about Academy possibly taking those 2017 MCIs.
  11. Hmm wonder how they will work the delivery... will those approximately 32 remaining 2001/2002 D4500s be the first to go? A big part of me wants some of those to be amongst the last given they are the last flip dots. The numbers seem interesting that only 50 go to NYCTA with Charleston and Yukon getting them. Castleton has 19 D4500CT (2008’s) and they were supposed to be replaced as well. There’s 7 D4500’s at Yukon (2002’s) which for sure are replaced at 18 years of service. At Charleston you have 29 D4500CLs (2007) and 17 D4500CTs (2013)... between the two depots that are getting bus

  13. Anyone know about this MCI D45 that is testing on Staten Island? Bus had a lot of extra wires on it for testing and was owned by MCI bus sales. Driver was an MCI employee. I thought the new express contract went to Prevost.
  14. Looks like we will be seeing a lot of other characters as well: Groot, Dumbo, and Rocket all spotted by Disney blogging sites. https://wdwnt.com/2019/08/photos-dumbo-groot-and-rocket-join-the-disney-transportation-fleet-as-new-bus-wraps-at-walt-disney-world/
  15. Caught today on SI: Proterra 0020 running the S56... believe that is a Charleston depot route.
