  1. @Orion6025: The 616R REPLACES the 600. Keep in mind: this is BRT, there are stations in the middle of the road, you can’t have diversions to malls. It goes to TTN Airport because that would become an intermodal terminal under this plan, with SEPTA service being extended one stop, and the BRT. The 615R and 617R would serve the MASSIVLEY underserved rt33 and rt206 corridors. What would be the best way to get the 617 to Sommerville?
  2. I have a new photo of one of the old Gens! Please post at this link and credit me: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Metropolitan_Transportation_Authority_3500-3599,_6690-6789 (posting this from my phone, so if the quality is bad, please let me know! Thanks!

  4. See the proposal linked ^^^ above. In the end I chose the Proterra BE40
  5. Hi all, Please see the Central NJ BRT proposal linked below: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rzGG3VVEdDdUrqGvDrRnkC4SXxCnLnBccscCMymN0Qw/edit# The frequencies would be: 614R 10BPH 615R 6BPH 616R 10BPH (some short-turns at Trenton) 617R 6BPH All the rest is outlined in the doc. Thoughts anyone @Orion6025 @M. Parsons?
  6. Hi all! Quick question - which buses does the Hudson Rail Link use? How many of them? and what are the fleet numbers? Any insight? @Orion6025 you seem to be quite knowledgeable about Northeastern transit systems, do you know? Thanks @Jova42R
  7. Really! Ok, which type of bus would be best (in a 35-ft length)? However, I say that a 40-fter is fine, Why wouldn't a 40-ft bus be good? (Honestly, a 45-fter would be best, as that would seat around 50 people, hence why I am leaning towards the Proterra BE40, that is 42 ft long and seats about 45.) EDIT: If the vote stays tied by 12 PM Eastern Time, I will pick the Proterra BE40.
  8. Vote! The poll closes at the end of the day!
  9. This is the LFS/LFXe+ (note the "+") Which bus, overall would be best? (I added the Gillig)
  10. That isn't happening - NICE can't lend busses to the MTA.
  11. BYD: Whoops! Which BYD models would work? New Flyer: They use lithium ion batteries, which harm the enviornment when they are produced Gillig: They make battery electric buses? Which ones? I'll post the proposal and tag you there. 8-10BPH on most of the routes.
  12. Please vote on the poll above. This is for a MEDIUM-RIDERSHIP SUBURBAN BRT Proposal. Not a high-ridership (hence no artic buses) Thoughts @Orion 1200 @Loud-Invero @FlyingPig?
  13. Ok, a few more things: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Academy_Bus_Lines_2991-2996 All of these are active, so you can put that under status! https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Academy_Bus_Lines_2141-2150 You can add to 2143: used on Manhattanville Shuttle https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Academy_Bus_Lines_2114-2118 You can add that these are backup buses for NYU and Columbia You may want to make a page for the VanHool buses if there is enough info. Thanks!!
  14. Sure thing! I'll post it here when done! Ahh ok - did not know there were photo quality requirements!
  15. EDIT: 2114-18 ARE NOT USED ON THE MANHATTANVILLE SHUTTLE! They are backup units only EDIT 2: All routes based out of Academy Hoboken Garage. Also, @Orion6025 Thanks for editing! could you add the pictures and these edits? Do you want route details (I could make a doc outlining them)
