Re: Original MaBSTOA Route Assignments Help

Unless I'm mistaken, that MaBSTOA could not legally operate FACCo 1 may explain why, in 1966, when ex-NYCO 1's SB route was shifted to Fifth after it and Madison were converted one-way, it only went down Fifth as far as 40th before running east there towards Park. I wonder what those who came and went at the company (especially after FACL's c.1973 transformation into South Bay Corporation) would have thought about the 2010 developments, service cutbacks etc., that led to the de facto re-creation of the old FACCo 1 route, if not FACCo 1 itself. (That FACCo 1 ended with the 1962 strike, and the circumstances behind why it was never resumed, proves once again that Wikipedia is full of it: a) by their claim that it and ex-NYCO 1 were "combined" with the 1966 Fifth and Madison one-way conversions, and b) by their assertion that FACCo 1 was discontinued on the day those conversions took effect, rather than four years before.)

From seeing the list of FACCo routes from that MCA article (interesting they, unlike NYCO or East Side Omnibus, never used Rt. 13 - was anybody in the company superstitious?), I noticed many changes (doubtless tied to said Federal ODT regulations) were effected on Dec. 6, 1942, and it's possible, if that was the period Rt. 1 became once-a-day, that day would have been it. (Then, there was June 1943 which was the beginning of suspension of Rt. 16 - Elmhurst Crosstown service until it resumed Nov. 1, 1945.)
