Btw, I got a kick out of something I heard over a bus radio the other morning. A bus operator in Yonkers called Control and said, "Be advised, I made a mistake..." I was only half listening but my ears picked that up!
Turned out the operator was reporting himself for going off-route. Seems he mistakenly stayed on (or strayed onto) School Street instead of turning into Elm Street. He said he missed Elm entirely. Control asked him could he loop back? He said no, too late, too far along. Control then asked for his run number and that was it.
