Re: Tuscarora Almanac for September 10

Posted by W.B. on Tue Sep 10 08:59:34 2019, in response to Tuscarora Almanac for September 10, posted by IRTRedbirdR33 on Tue Sep 10 08:25:21 2019.

Wouldn't it have been on or about September 10, 1995, that what had been the 106th Street branch of M19 - 96th Street Crosstown (the only branch at that point to bear that old number - the main branch had been M96 since 1993) had its route numbering changed to M106 (and its transition points changed from Third / Lexington Avenues to Madison / Fifth Avenues)? I seem to recall that first turned up in the February 1996 Manhattan bus map, as well.

I presume the 1988 bus map was also the last to refer to M26 before it became M23; the 12th Avenue branch of M27 before it became M50 (as opposed to the Port Authority branch which remained M27); and M29 before it became M66. Or would that have been the 1987 map that was the last we would see of M8 - Grand Street and the rush-hour M5 that traveled through Riverside Drive up to 157th Street?

But it's interesting that the "new" M103 was launched six years to the day after the "old" M103 was ixnayed (actually, if you see my own Bus Almanac, merged with M28 - 57th Street Crosstown to create M57).
