Tonight I took the same 13-Ossining run home as pictured in the previous post. Only tonight -- at the same location -- I counted 23 passengers aboard instead of the 4 or 5 the night I took the photo.
What was the same both nights was the NABI low-floor hybrid.
Couple years ago when the NABIs began to arrive in force, I was pleasantly surprised that the 13 route was assigned a bunch of them. Then last year it was back to the 600 series Orion Vs on the 13. Hardly ever rode or even saw a NABI on a 13 run.
Just lately the NABIs have begun to reappear.
The Orions and NABIs are both decent buses but the low-floors are easier to get on and off of. Especially in the morning when I'm still half asleep.
