Re: Original MaBSTOA Route Assignments Help

I was told by Al Meier, former editor of Motor Coach Age, that FACCO Rt 1 ran as a once-a-day franchise tripper from 135 St to 42 St using a YC TD-4506 until the end of FACL in 1962. After that MABSTOA legally could not operate it. There were many cutbacks, suspensions and even eliminations of routes when the 1943 Federal ODT regulations took effect. Many did not return, or if they did it was limited service. My hunch is Rt. 1 became a once-a-day tripper in 1943.
