i think i could remember the time i rode one of them COMMAND busses. i couldnt tell what was the exact number but all i could think is 49xx. i used to love riding those old RTS's http://thebergennetwork.com/na/ny/cbc/tmc.php wouldve been better if the B103 only had those Command busses and the Orion V. i just hate those orion 7's

I have a faint memory of me taking the B1 sometime in junior high school, I believe. But that memory of mine is clouded.
The only time I remember taking an RTS bus clearly was when I took the B6 to Caesar's Bay Shopping Center.

Not really a bus buff, but if the B3's are using RTS's then, it's been always the B3.

Nice picture, but everyone knows that everybody that lives in NYC in BveStation knows that is an RTS.

B3 was unique back then when it had coach bus seating inside the RTS

they used to have Orion 5's like that too...unfortunately they took out all those :(

the closest thing is some (SOME not all) of the Orion 5 CNG's still have their original soft chairs they were built with (MTA doesn't like soft chairs however lol)

That is not true. The first few months I was on BVEStation I had no idea what the buses in the entire NYC Bus fleet were called.
