It may not be a duck but its certainly is an ex-NYCTA bus in the service of McDermott Bus Corp.

Note the driver's stanchion and the added cheap marker lights

The destination sign, or reasonable facsimile, appears to say "Meadowlands"

Feedback is highly appreciated

MaBSTOA 15:

Do you know about when that photo was taken?

As to "MEADOWLANDS" on the sign, the only guess I could make is that perhaps McDermott was making special runs to the now-demolished MEADOWLNDS sports arena in E. Rutherford, for certain events.

That's about as much as I can give; hopefully, one of the other experts (this leaves Your's Truly out!) might be able to shed some light on this "mystery" bus......

"NYO"

PS:

Glad to see, though, that this bus escaped the torch when it was no longer needed by the "Tee-Yay".

It's just like the old, old saying goes: "A good Fishbowl is a terrible thing to waste!" Wink

"NYO"
