Had a big surprise when I came out of the Subway at Forest Hills, yesterday...an articulated on the Q-64...
Another passenger told me he saw one on the route a few weeks ago.

It didn't take long for the Queens College bound rider's to notice, and plug their phones into the overhead USB receptacle's.... Smile

Yes...thanks from me, too....I wonder how those things handle the snow?
Better or worse than straight bus?

A saying that's developing is that Arctic weather is especially rough on artic' buses.

Yeah...I kind of thought so...I suppose the seal's between the section's may have an insulation issue in extreme cold, especially as the bus ages...

And like a semi-truck, they may have a tendency to jack-knife, when brakes are applied on icy roads...?
