Re: MaBSTOA/NYCTA Flxible Roster in the Early 90s

Actually, I was referring to the current fleet, not the last generation of buses, as those buses are long gone from active service. From 1996 onward, more specifically. Too bad that the MTA can't make their buses last up to 25 years like NYBS once did.

The same thing was said about the RTS in the late '70s/early '80s, and now everyone waxes nostalgic about how they lasted 20+ years and today's crap won't. IMO, almost anything can be made to run forever, and the lifespan of a piece of equipment is a result of the availability of funds to replace it, not the durability of the equipment.
