I think you're right about #7023 and #7027 with Sunrise Coaches on them. Makes more sense for those to go to Suffolk Bus.

I wonder if that means that Sunrise Coach written on #7015 is a mistake as well or if it is actually going to Sunrise Coach?

#5091-5096 are finally gone. They were good buses. Got some great recordings on #5091 and #5094-5095. They will be missed.

That officially ends the "Gillig" era at Sunrise Coaches.

201x New Flyer XDE35 or XDE40: 43 Buses (Unknown amounts of each model)


*2947-2948 transferred to Fix route for use on the 7A (2948 broke down and was replaced by 2947 for the rest of the week, unknown if 2948 was returned to SCAT service)


*The 7D/E, 10A, and 10D/E were proposed to be cut in 1990. It is assumed they were cut because another route that was listed with them was mentioned as having been cut but restored a few years later. It is assumed that if they were indeed cut they were restored around or before 1993 as the routes were listed on the 1993 system wide bus map

#7023 was said to have been on the S40 and S68 today,

Also a Photo on Suffolk Transportation Service's Facebook page of the Bay Shore Yard taken on June 21st without any Transit buses makes me wonder if they have there to cover service or there aren't Transit buses at the Bay Shore Yard at all now.

#7023 was said to have been on the S40 and S68 today,

Also a Photo on Suffolk Transportation Service's Facebook page of the Bay Shore Yard taken on June 21st without any Transit buses makes me wonder if they have there to cover service or there aren't Transit buses at the Bay Shore Yard at all now.



I saw buses at Bay Shore this past Sunday. One gillig had it's engine door open.


Ah, so they must have enough to cover the weekday service, since the Bay Shore yard isn't open weekends anymore.

201x New Flyer XDE35 or XDE40: 43 Buses (Unknown amounts of each model)


*2947-2948 transferred to Fix route for use on the 7A (2948 broke down and was replaced by 2947 for the rest of the week, unknown if 2948 was returned to SCAT service)


*The 7D/E, 10A, and 10D/E were proposed to be cut in 1990. It is assumed they were cut because another route that was listed with them was mentioned as having been cut but restored a few years later. It is assumed that if they were indeed cut they were restored around or before 1993 as the routes were listed on the 1993 system wide bus map

Here is a drawing of the S54's route when it was started in 1979.

At the start it went from Commack to Patchouge RR.

Here is the link to the News article that talks about the S54's founding. http://nyshistoricnewspapers.org/lccn/sn84031477/1979-09-27/ed-1/seq-3/
