S92 Deadhead Observation

Posted by Osmosis Jones on Mon Jun 29 22:50:27 2020

Just got finished doing some fanning around Suffolk, and while riding the last S92 of the night going to East Hampton, we met the bus that arrived at East Hampton before us in the Shinnecock Hills area while it was in the midst of its deadhead move all the way back to Greenport! Curious about this, I asked my driver if he does the same thing, and he told me that he just heads back to Southampton to park his bus overnight.

I remember reading something online a little while back that said that the last few East Hampton-bound S92 buses of the night or something to that effect deadheaded through Shelter Island to get back to Greenport, but evidently this is not the case anymore, at least not for that bus.

Regardless, at nearly 50 miles and over 1 hour, this has to be the longest deadhead move in the tri-state area, and one of the longest in the country for a local transit route. Ridership was obviously pretty low on my trip, but we all know that S92 ridership is normally through the roof, so I'm surprised that Suffolk Transit doesn't just convert that deadhead move into a revenue run.
