Re: Tuscarora Almanac for September 10

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.

The 106th Street Branch of the M-19 96th Street Crosstown bus line began running on January 7, 1974 replacing the former M-107 route. The last map to show is as a branch was dated June 1995. The first map to show it as the M-106 was dated February 1996.

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?

You are correct. The last map to show the 23rd Street Crosstown as the M-26 was the 1988 one. The 1989 mays lists it as the M-26
