Fellows:

I often see RTS buses pulling up at the stop outside of the ABC 7 Eyewittness News studios when watching the local news.

What route is this?

Also, when are the last of the RTS's to be retired?

The RTS has been a part of the MTA family since the 1980's; it is going to seem strange when all have been retired, and their once-familiar forms have disappeared from the streets of Gotham forever..............

Incomplete answer: The window is at 66th and Columbus, so you should see Ninth Avenue el trains above New York City Omnibus.

I can only surmise the bus lines going through there using RTS's (west on 66th Street), are M20 and M66. Can't say as yet about M7 (that'd be the only possibility south on Columbus).
