There were a few experimental models in the Old Look buses, and when the New Looks came out in 1959, they were offered with air conditioning. The first ones I saw was DC Transit's "Articoolers&q ...

PostForum: New York City Bus Rosters   Posted: Tue May 08, 2018 9:04 pm   Subject: NYCTA & MABSTOA Flxible Bus Roster (Long Post)
And at the risk of repeating myself: That pic of that Flx on the 3 - 49th & 50th Crosstown route makes it all the more ironic that none of the 1964 or '65 Flxies really saw service (if at all) on ...

I have also been curious as to the original assignments of the FACL Fishbowls. According to another thread, as of September 1962 (six months into MaBSTOA's operations of former FACO, NYCO and ST line ...

And a few bus routes never did come back from the 1942-43 ODT-mandated service cutbacks. Among the major casualties were FACCO's 9 which traveled from 72nd Street and Central Park West to Washington ...

Mucho thanks, as always. But I couldn't help but notice reading about the reroutings of 2, 3 and 5 as from Washington Square Park to 8th Street and University Place. The capsuled service change desc ...

I think NYCTA/MABSTOA started using the 4-piece rear windoiw combo with the third order of TDH-5303s, OA's 6401-6900. I think all of the older TA/OA 5303s were delivered with the 3-piece rear window ...
