M1 bus will be extended to lower Manhattan beginning next spring:

http://www.downtownexpress.com/2016/...h-to-worth-st/

Quote:



. . .
Every other bus will make the extended loop on weekdays and every bus will take it on weekends. The MTA expects buses to run every 16–24 minutes on at weekdays, and every 12–20 minutes on weekends, depending on the time of day. The extension will not alter the frequency of buses on the existing M1 route, an MTA spokesman said.

The extended M1 will supplement the M103 bus that runs on the Bowery and join the M22 during its short trip on Worth Street. It will be the only city bus traveling in either direction on Lafayette Street.

The very long M5 bus has been split into two, with the section connecting Midtown to downtown now called M55.


http://web.mta.info/nyct/service/pla...ges_M5_M55.htm

service details from the new bus map:



http://web.mta.info/nyct/maps/manbus17_2.pdf

the two routes overlap in the heart of Midtown



http://web.mta.info/nyct/maps/manbus17.pdf

the new map also shows the completed Second Avenue Subway



http://web.mta.info/nyct/maps/manbus17.pdf

However, the new M15 bus schedule still refers to "2nd Av Subway construction"

MTA to buy 200 Toronto diesels for L train shutdown

https://www.timeout.com/newyork/blog...hutdown-043017

Quote:
The upcoming 2019 L train shutdown is one of those rare changes to the city’s transportation network that will have such a large effect it practically begs for an out-of-the-box, radical solution. In public meetings and at independent design competitions across the city such innovative ideas have been proposed as a soaring gondola over the Williamsburg bridge, a giant floating pathway over the East River and completely shutting down 14th Street to automobiles. This week, the MTA announced that they’re preparing for the massive disruption to the subway system by purchasing 200 diesel buses. Uh... ok, sure.

DNAinfo reports that the MTA's board approved the purchase of 628 new busses for a total of $366,495,966. All of the busses except ten are diesel powered (sorry, environmentalists). Those ten will be part of an electric bus pilot system that will have a three-year test run beginning in 2017. In addition to the new fleet of busses, the MTA is continuing to work with the Department of Transportation to come up with other alternative service plans.

But, come on. Surely that money could have at least bought a few gondolas.

http://www.nyctransitforums.com/foru...sels/?p=923174

Per Trevor Logan Jr:

Quote:
I've been holding on to this tidbit of information for about two months now, but I was told that the MTA would be buying 200 Ex-Toronto Transit Commission 2003-04 Orion VII Gen-II Diesels. These units are Detroit Diesel Series 50EGR Powered with Allison B400R Transmissions.

This article by TimeOut confirms that.

A couple of my connects from Toronto had told me that officials from the MTA was up there to look at the fleet a while back and hold told me that this purchase was forthcoming, at the time I had no idea why the MTA would be 200 used Diesel buses when we were buying a frig-ton of new buses, but this makes sense as keeping our older buses would not be as reliable as these units that are newer and that have received a rotisserie-all around rebuild in 2013-2014.
