Re: Former Express O5s on Q65A

Posted by Howard Fein on Wed Jan 17 09:37:53 2007, in response to Re: 3557 on the QM18 (!), posted by AMoreira81 on Wed Jan 17 08:07:21 2007.

I always found it a bit strange that CP will run the 7200s (former TCC expresses) and 8500s (former QSC expresses) on the Q65A- even in rush hour. But the lines that run through downtown Flushing- namely the 25, 34, 65, 66 and QBX1- use strictly the hard-seated 98 and 9900s.

The 65A gets just as crowded in rush hour as the other named routes, and those aisle-narrowing suburban seats just don't mix well with crowds. Those immovable armrests are also an impediment to easy sitting and standing. On those occasions when I have to use the 65A out of Forest Hills during the PM rush, I'd rather hold out for a hard-seater.

The suburban O5s make sense on the relatively lightly-used Q104. I haven't especially paid attention, but it looks like the 67, 101 and 102 use primarily hard-seaters. And I haven't seen a 103 in years.
