It will be interesting to see if the Orion VII NG hybrids holding up on the S79 SBS well; if they ever learn the M34/M34A SBS mishaps. IMO, they should use artics right away.

I don't see how putting +SBS+ on a route automatically means it needs artics. If it could handle the passenger load before +SBS+, then it could handle the passenger load after +SBS+. Ridership may increase, so you'll probably need to increase frequencies a bit, but I don't see a reason to suddenly go to artics. The only possible argument I can think of is that it makes it easier for the fare inspectors to board the bus.

And in any case, the S79 isn't get POP. It's just getting TSP, bus lanes, and they're making it into a limited-stop route. So it's basically just a faster version of the current service. Like I said, increase the frequencies a bit. There's no need to go into the logistic problems of having artics in a borough that's currently 100% 40-foot buses.

It's a glorified limited route. MTA just should created an 'S99' Limited instead of wasting time and money on this SBS project.

They Nova Artics that Flatbush is getting should go to Yukon or Charleston instead since the B44 won't be going +SBS anytime soon.

That's what I meant let the S79 get the Artics first.

And then send them over to the B44 when it gets +SBS+? I guess...

Flatbush is now slated for the end of this order.

There are New Flyer DE60LFRs coming in. Some of those could go to Flatbush instead.
