    Just curious are passengers allowed to ride deadheading buses? I’ve seen a lot of buses deadheading from Cold Spring on Main St. I’ve seen buses in some cases displaying the route they’re going to run on and the terminal they’re headed to. i.e. 24B to Downtown while heading south on Main, passing the medical campus. Or the 13A to University heading north on Main towards University Station.

    The buses do not reflect intended seating. They are just spec’d to the most recent order from the manufacture. For the Proterra it was for Philadelphia. And for BYD it was for some agency in California. Also I was talking to UB parking and transportation their next order will most likely be 40ft. The Proterra was tested in the Ellicott Tunnel and was able to make it through. While there was talks about 60ft there currently isn’t much being being planns to demo any 60ft buses as of now. As stated before the next demo will be in September for New Flyer. No word on Nova Bus at this time.

    Passengers were able to ride but they were dropped off at the same location they were picked up. As for the full stampede run on Tuesday that canceled for passengers because they didn't want to register it. One of the demo trips on Monday did go through the Ellicott Tunnel and I do have a video of it, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to publish for other reasons.

    I guess being from NYC I don't see hourly or bi-hourly service as frequent. The problem I have with the 60 is the fact it doesn't go to Downtown Niagara Falls.

    The Proterra bus is on display today. Here's a small sample of what I got. Here are some interior shots.

    Do they even have the money to buy new buses?

    There is no general link you have to go to their website, click rider tools, and then click where's my bus. After that, you can check whatever route you want. Here's the one for the n6 https://www.nicebus.com/Tools/Maps-and-Schedules/Line?test=&route=n6

    The 40 in its current state really sucks. Most people do ride the bus between NF and BUF so it'd be nicer to have a full-time route similar to the 204.

    This tracker looks like the one used by Hudson Link I'm guessing it's because they're from Transdev.

    If NFTA is looking to improve service I definitely have ideas. I definitely have a couple of ideas in where Limited stops routes could exist. Also, this may be a great time to push my route 80E Buffalo <-> Niagara Falls Express concept. https://drive.google.com/open?id=11RHkU-Rud5Ou_gHA6Zv8NC2gbab-he7k&amp;usp=sharing
