What to Do With Surplus Artics

Recommended Posts

I was thinking,  if dwell time is a problem on artics the only sensible reason would be the fact that the back doors take a few seconds to close. To my knowledge both the 66 and 79 used just 4000's. As a frequent rider of artics i noticed 4300's doors close faster than the 4000's ones. Is it possible that 4000's are the only buses causing dwell time problems? If so almost all of the 4300's could move to 77th and Chicago which have the heaviest routes and the rest at the other garages where they might be needed.

Here is my idea of the garage assignments it could go down any way but this is one option I think would work

103rd: 4312-4316

NP: 4317-4322, 4324-4327, 4370-4379

Chicago: 4328-4332, 4334-4349  

77th: 4301-4311, 4350-4369, 4380-4399

I don't think series made a difference cause 77th started with all 4300s and Chicago had half their artics made up of 4300 before they were sent north
