Re: June 27, 2010 bus service cuts.

Posted by W.B. on Sun Jun 28 12:51:09 2020, in response to June 27, 2010 bus service cuts., posted by Chicago44 on Sun Jun 28 10:41:36 2020.

One consequence of these bus service cuts was in Manhattan where one route - the M1 - on southbound runs, thereafter became pretty much a carbon copy of the old FACO Division Route #1 between 135th and 8th Streets. Ordinarily this wouldn't matter except this M1 was derived wholly from the old NYCO Fourth and Madison Avenue line which, in turn, replaced the borough's first streetcar line that was launched in 1832. No doubt no-one from whatever firm was descended from Fifth Avenue Coach Lines raised so much as a peep over such re-routing - given how, way back in 1962, FACL prevailed in preventing MaBSTOA from resuming FACO #1 service claiming "perpetual franchise."
