That shows that M13 by then was assigned out of the new Hudson depot; I'm sure that if anyone with a camera saw M12's passing by Spring, Delancey or Prince there would've been a plethora of T6H-5309A's.

The building is still around, but it was closed as a depot in 2003. It was replaced by the ex-Greyhound depot on 11th Avenue between 40th and 41st Streets, originally designated 'Westside Depot' after being placed under MTA New York City Bus aegis - but now known as the Michael J. Quill Depot.

W.B:

Thanks....this is interesting to know; now, I have to ask this question.....since the "MJQ" depot is an ex-GREYHOUND facility, where in Manhattan does The Hound service its rubber-tired, diesel-gulpin' doggies these days?

Thanks again for the info.....

I have been abroad for quite some time now, but the last I recall, they fully service buses destined to NYC at their last service point prior to NYC (such as Richmond), and then just sweep and turn them in New York, as much as possible. They do have a storage lot on 11th Avenue between 29th and 30th Streets, and they have another Port Authority owned lot beneath the ramp to the UBL between 40th and 41st Streets, just east of Dyre Avenue. They do have the cabability of dumping the lavs there. washing windshields, etc...
They still employ several mechanics in NYC, that can do light running repairs.

One interesting tidbit about the Quill Depot....Greyhound still uses the two level driver dormitory under that facility. The MTA had no use for that space, so Greyhound leases it from them. They run a couple of vans to and from the Port to shuttle driver's back and forth...

traildriver:

Hard to believe that the Mighty Hound no longer fully services it buses in the Big Apple........talk about "times a-changin'"....... Sad

It was interesting, however, to learn what I've just learned, thanks to you.....was particularly interesting about GREYHOUND using the two-level dormitory under the present MJQ depot.

I'm glad that, at least, they still have storage lots in Manhattan! Very Happy
