GBL REBEL et al,

I think we can all agree that the city's vintage bus collection must be preserved as a living history of the evolution of surface transportation in New York - there's no question about it!
While the present 'helter-skelter' approach to this end by spreading their storage over the entire city is acceptable merely to protect them, it really doesn't do them justice nor does it promote interest in what these buses represent! (the once a year 'Bus Fest' is fine, but I think we can do better than that!).
The answer is a permanent (all under one roof) continuous presence that the public can subscribe to and that we can enjoy!
It just doesn't seem to be that tall of an order, and it doesn't seem as though our 300 member strong BusTalk organization can't at least make some noise in this regard.
Perhaps we should form an 'adhoc' committee of not only BTN members but interested MTA officials and even the likes of News Hour's Jim Lehrer who is an ardent bus fan (and has the public's ear)!
Admittedly, a well organized and maintained bus museum may never come to fruition in New York with the pitfalls that I would expect that we would encounter, but I think it's certainly worth a college try - don't you?

I actually wrote an email to MTA suggesting another TM facility and the preservation of more buses (including 5887 which was the last MCI Classic in service). I know that this will most likely not get anywhere but its worth a shot. I really do think that they should try and save 1 of each model in every pbl. (ex. take an RTS from each pbl and saving it). Jim Lehrer is a bus fan? How do you know?

Jim LehrerJames Charles Lehrer (pronounced [lɛɹ]) (born May 19, 1934) is the news anchor for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS. Lehrer is also an acclaimed author, writing both non-fiction and fiction which draws on his life experiences and his interests in history and politics.


History
Lehrer was born in Wichita, Kansas, and attended middle school in Beaumont, Texas. He graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in San Antonio, Texas, where he was one of the three sports editors at the Jefferson Declaration. He also graduated from Victoria College and the University of Missouri.

After three years in the United States Marine Corps, he began his news career in Dallas, first as a newspaperman, covering the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963 and then later as the anchor on a local news show. Lehrer started work with PBS in 1972, and in 1975 started The MacNeil/Lehrer Report with Robert MacNeil. The show was later renamed The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, and in its most recent incarnation is known as The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.

Nicknamed the "Dean of Moderators"[1] by CNN's Bernard Shaw, Lehrer has been the moderator for ten debates among candidates vying for President of the United States of America. Most recently he moderated the first presidential debate between George W. Bush and John Kerry during the 2004 election campaign on September 30, 2004.

Lehrer is well known as a bus enthusiast. He is a major supporter of the Pacific Bus Museum in Williams, California, and the Museum of Bus Transportation in Hershey, Pennsylvania. His father was a bus driver and also briefly operated a bus company. As a college student, he worked as a Trailways ticket agent.

He is married to the novelist Kate Lehrer, and has three children and six grandchildren. He was awarded the Presidential National Humanities Medal in 1999.

P.S.; he would be an ideal voice for us!

TransitGuy,

I make no promises but I will do what I can with what's left of my 'show business' connections out here.
I knew about Jim Lehrer from some years ago when we did a couple of commercials with Pacific Bus Museum equipment.
