Another update – Idling buses

October 23, 2009

There has become a consciousness among bus drivers at  holdovers that previously had them idly idling. They now shut their engines if they will be staying for 3 minutes or longer.  The MTA and the posted signs about $2000 fines have made the difference.

Now truckers making deliveries need to come on board.  Often a request  by a  pedestrian results in compliance. It is illegal in NYS for trucks and buses to idle more that 3 minutes.
