Re: Original MaBSTOA Route Assignments Help

Posted by W.B. on Mon Apr 23 04:41:08 2018, in response to Original MaBSTOA Route Assignments Help, posted by 33rd Street on Wed Jul 22 01:12:53 2009.

Another forum had inquired as to what MaBSTOA's route assignments would have been as of September 1962. But even there, it wasn't "original," as at least one route had its assignment changed two months aforehand (FACO Division's Route 2, which at its restart on July 1, 1962 had been based out of Kingsbridge depot, but switched on the 13th of that month to 132nd Street). From the same article from which the list cited here had originated (they mentioned, in the individual routes, what was where when), I have been able to gauge the 9/62 assignments thus (with first transfers therefrom in parentheses):
