Gentlemen:

Does anyone know just when crowd gates were eliminated on NJ buses?

I seem to recall them being removed sometime around the mid-1980's, but I cannot be sure.

The crowd gates always (IMHO) made a "Joisey" bus even "Joisier-er"....... Wink

I can't answer the above but I can share this photo that I found at the bottom of a box of photos...

This is a yellow Coach (note the builders plate above the windshield) model 1204 and the "Jersey crowd gate" (who ever had the photo before drew black dashes showing where the gate would go).

Note the Cleveland fare box and set of tickets. The driver's seat is a Karpen and I love the car style brake pedal.

I think this is a Public Service bus.

Hey New York City Omnibus 2629… Did you see the picture in the section “Transit Bus Manufacturers” under the topic “How Astute Are You?”. There is a picture of the New Jersey Transit PD-4106 and you can see the Jersey fare gate through the windshield. Enjoy!
