W.B.:

Appreciate the info.

So, I see that when the PABT opened in 1950, there was only one EAC route passing by; after 1954, when 8th Avenue became one-way northbound, where were the southbound ...

Quick question......

When the new "Port-of-Authority" opened in late 1950, what routes (EIGHTH AVENUE COACH?) were then running on 8th Avenue?

And today?

..........interesting on how it was that a local "indy" company like "AVENUE B." had the distinction of operating the very last MACKS in the city.

Getting back to the buses, did any MACKS ever operate on Myrtle Avenue?
If they did, I reckon it would have been pre-1966.

B54 was based out of Fresh Pond depot which, as of 1972, had 53 of the 1969-70 111CC-D5-1 "Dangerfields" (4100-4152, probably going back to 1970), extended by 1974 to 58 (up to 4157) and by ...

Twin Donut. Another chain that's gone by the wayside.

But 4852 arrived prior to the abandonment of the last remaining portion of the Third Avenue el, so it wasn't necessarily direct in terms of re ...

Myrtle Avenue..........

I know that when the Bronx 3rd Avenue El closed in 1973, MaBSTOA took delivery of new Fishbowls (T6H-5309A's)

When the Myrtle Avenue El closed in late 1969, were any new ...

I seem to remember the last of the 5309A's (4860-4919) which did do service on the Bx55 line, allowed the last of the 1960 FACL/ST Fishbowls to be retired. The first order (4800-4859) was scattered a ...
