    Which numbers?

    Niagara Region Transit

    Just checked it out on the Welland Transit map/schedule. Does list them there in the 700-series. Slipped right on by me. Note: 200-series routes are assigned to evening and weekend services on Niagara Falls Transit. So...(thus far) 0##: Niagara Region Transit (all times) and regional routes by other agencies 1##: Niagara Falls Transit (Weekday/Saturday Daytime) 2##: Niagara Falls Transit (Weekday and Saturday Evening/Sunday) 3##: St. Catharines Transit (Weekday/Saturday Daytime) 4##: St. Catharines Transit (Weekday and Saturday Evening/Sunday) 5##: Welland Transit (all times, Weekday, Saturday and Sunday) 7##: Port Colborne Transit and Fort Erie Transit. In the grand scheme of things, I believe there is going to be a "dynamic" named shuttle between Port Colborne and Fort Erie, connecting the southern-most section of Niagara RM points. I have to look at a handout I have, it may be implemented around 2023-ish. There could also be another westerly reaching route, but don't have the info in front of me to properly quote it. Still not integrated:: Pelham Transit, Niagara-on-the-Lake Transit, Town of Lincoln Transit (uLinc) WEGO Visitor Transportation (although they may have 300-302 listed as their routes, internally (300-Red Line, 301-Blue Line and 302-Green Line). Also, though treated separately, GO Transit route 11 and 12 (AFAIK) don't have matching route numbers in the region. All in all, interesting changes.

    The Fort Erie is #22, while Port Colborne is #25. NOTL has the Heritage Route as #1, and Glendale as #2. In all fairness, no route numbers are shared across Niagara unless you count ULinc routes 1 and 2, plus their number 3.

    Advertising boxes on site.

    Is there a problem with the advertising boxes that show up on the website? I used to see them near the bottom, and sometimes (rarely) the top of the articles. They're mixed within the article, and it doesn't look right. Counted no less than five this morning on the Nova Bus LFS article. Seems to be a little excessive (not throwing shade at the site, but if something is broken, allow you guys to notify the provider to get it fixed). Have screen caps if necessary to show.

    Can you explain exactly what the number scheme is, unpredictability? lol

    Primary corridor out of the city of Buffalo. Should be one of the first to be worked on, regardless of the funding.

    Hope that's not the reason the DOT's left Delaware in that shape for so long.

    The shame is that they're running the new Novas on Delaware and Colvin lines right now, where the road is in absolutely deplorable condition (on Delaware between North Street and the end of the S curves. Those lines deserve a bus with padded seats, due to the way that they hit those potholes. However, they hit Delaware with the Nova's and the 2400's frequently.

    With the reputation that the 9600-series had, I'm not surprised at all. With the one bus gone (due to a collission or accident) they seem to hold up really well. Even the shocks on them seem to rattle a lot less than the earlier (and later) Gilligs. If you notice too, they're on heavy use lines like the 12, 13, 23, 48 and 44. Many of those lines are at capacity or approaching through the majority of their trips.

    Noticed the clarity of the signage to be more pixels, creating a smoother read.

    Detroit DOT

    Kind of like, now that I see everything together. The old DDOT logo though is iconic. Sad to see that go.

    Regional Transit Service - Rochester NY (R-GRTA)

Much of the changes are minor in nature, with many routes returning to pre-summer season headways. Most notable changes include, 3, 5, and 104. Route 59 (MCC Connector) has been added, providing direct service between MCC Downtown and MCC Brighton campuses. Services operate weekdays only, between 7:15am and 9:30pm with half-hourly service during the day, and hourly service in the early evenings. No weekend service.

    NFTA-Metro

    On Sunday, September 2, the NFTA-Metro system will implement it's schedules for the Fall season. Much of the changes are minor in nature, with many routes returning to pre-summer season headways. Changes include, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 32, 34, 40, 47, 55, 64, 66, 67, 68, 72, 76, 101-112, and 204. Route 206 has been eliminated, and service has been replaced with a shuttle service operated by Niagara Majestic Tours. The service hasn't released a schedule yet, but it encourages students of the campus to use their online shuttle tracker to see where the bus is located. This leaves route 204 as the lone Metrolink route. Note: Buffalo State College students are still able to participate in the Metro CRAM pass program, allowing students to use Metro's conventional services during their time at Buffalo State College. Route 20 and 32 still continue to service the campus via the stop on Rockwell Road at Elmwood (#32) and on Elmwood Avenue at Rockwell (#20). Metro's Niagara Falls Trolley also continues to operate daily until September 30, and then weekends (Fri-Sun) from October 5-October 28. A day pass can be purchased on the bus for $5.00 or for Free when staying at a participating hotel in the city of Niagara Falls. Metro's present and new schedules can be accessed at http://metro.nfta.com/Routes/Schedules.aspx,

    NFTA-Metro

    Cold Springs occasionally has their 1717-1724 Novas on the 8, 12, and 13 out of University Station. With the possible exception of the destination sign, they're visually identical to the 1817-1824 series from Babcock. If not mistaken, they're trying to even out the bus age among all the divisions. Used to not like them due to the seating, but they're starting to grow on me (except when the buses are running down Delaware on the #11 or #25. Every. Single. Pothole. Is. Murder. lol

    1801-1816 turn up on Frontier routes, while 1817-1824 turn up on Babcock routes, weekends excepted (when most are Frontier buses). Note: 1801-1816 are CNG while 1817-1824 are clean burning diesel. Only Frontier has buses that are fueled by CNG. The diesel buses are kind of plain looking except for the top roofline. I don't know how long until the 2000-series buses are going to be around for, especially since they're arrived at the 18 year mark. The last Nova's did hang on for 20 years, but on a greatly reduced number. Consider this if you're trying to show comparisons between the two models and if you're not in Buffalo often. ==edit== Babcock: 1, 2, 4, 6, 14, 15, 16, 19, 32, 42, 46, 69, 70, 72, 74, 76 Frontier: 3, 5, 7, 11, 20, 25, 34, 35, 40, 50, 52, 54, 55, 60, 61 Cold Springs: 8, 12, 13, 18, 22, 23, 24, 26, 29, 44, 47, 48, 49, 64, 66, 67, 68, 81 There might be occasional trips on certain routes that may operate from other stations, especially during the school semester. I could suggest certain points to catch views of the 1800's; * North Division Street Transfer Hub: Virtually all buses in the downtown area pass through here. With Washington closed between Broadway and Eagle, more buses will operate through North Division & Ellicott in both directions. Also, the Buffalo Transportation Center is nearby, although I don't know if the NFTA Transit Police would be friendly with pictures being taken on the center grounds. * Broadway & Washington * Niagara Falls Transit Center (possibly) Also, if you have a laptop or smartphone and wifi, the http://stp.nfta.com page will give you information on the numbers of the buses heading into downtown, and can plan somewhat it advance if you're looking for a particular number. Best of luck!
