Would anyone be interested if I started a Cayuga USA roleplay page on the site? With rosters and all that?


Adam9849

I would like to see that, it would be interesting. I have also made a roster with a lot of content to make the fleet have value lol

By all means share it with the class. I was going to do similar but never quite got around to it. All I have is (based on actual deadheads/operations)


South Cayuga City (CCTA) Depot operates route 17
City Line Depot (CCTA) operates routes 3, 30, 34, 35, 102, 150, and 319
Greenville Depot (GREAT) Operates routes 201, 202, 203, 204
RP Transit operates route 205 under contract with GREAT
Lakeland Bus Lines operates routes 214, 215, and 216


If you want to like a basic understanding of how the lines work scheduling wise:

Route 3, 17, 34, 35, 201, 202, 203, 204, 214, 215, and 216 uses ALL standard sizedbuses
Route 319 uses articulated buses
Routes 102, and 150 use MCI Highway coach buses.
Route 30 has 2 trips a day that use articulated buses, the rest are standard sized buses
Route 205 uses small buses (since none are standard with OMSI, I made it use MAN double deckers in the AI but it's actually supposed to use 30 foot buses).

So I made fleet roster, I put in a lot of buses since I don't know how much routes the Cayuga map will have. But I can tell that CCTA will have the most buses out of the 3 companies. Here is my fleet roster:

So what did you guys think? Lol that's a lot of info I made up.


Dash5155

Lakeland only needs 10-15 buses. The lines they have is the only lines they will operate. All the other routes that go to/from Lakeland would be CCTA routes and GREAT/RP routes

and for those systems, your roster is perfect. we should abide by it, as a matter of fact :o

Adam9849

Ah ok, I even made a plan where Lakeland would be eliminated and the routes/depot would be acquired by Greenville. Something similar to MTA where the former private bus lines depots have buses that are marked as 'MTA Bus' as opposed to 'MTA New York City Bus', in this instance i would make the ex-Lakeland depot be labelled 'Greenville Bus' as opposed to 'Greenville Transit Bus' or something like that. And cool, I like being creative with is type of stuff, I even make specific repaints for specific bus numbers sometimes. Cool to know that you might implement this to some extent.

When I'm done setting up the forums, I will set up a Cayuga USA Roleplaying Sub-Forum and have everyone set up their scenarios, combining the best aspects of each.


I'll probably set up a rewards system so that I can add points based on how long each person was driving (of course, they'd have to upload their log files as proof of how long they were driving.

These units were purchased to accommodate an uptick in ridership on the 319 route. 7420-7435 are currently being branded for +Direct BRT Service on the 301 and 319 lines. When delivery of the 2017 LFSA Hybrids are further along, they will share the 301 and 319.

Notes:



       
  • The 34 and 35 run a mix of 40 foot and 60 foot buses during all times of the day on both weekdays and weekends. The addition of artics to the route came in late February 2017 after complaints of crowded buses from drivers and passengers. Rumor is, the line may become 70% artic and 30% standard by July 2017.

  •    
  • A new bus depot named South Cayuga City is expected to open soon. So far, the only route that will be transferred there is the 17. Route 62 will operate out of there using 30-foot buses. When more info is available it will be posted.

  •    
  • CCTA is looking into the options of expanding bus service in the outlying suburbs. An anonymous official has said that they are considering opening a Lakeland Bus Depot to be shared with Lakeland Bus Lines. 

  •    
  • There are talks of either restructuring or eliminating the 102 bus. If it is restructured, it will be extended to Greenville High School. If it is eliminated, the 113 will make an extra stop at the Transit Hub to accommodate 102 passengers before continuing to Cayuga City.


Dash5155

Good thing you bumped this actually, cause I almost forgot to make the Cayuga RP section. I will do that when 0.6 drops because it's closet to the full map in terms of CCTA operations.

Like the map would still be 40% complete in 0.6, but the routes and schedules will be there so I can actually add in the proper fleet numbers. Based on everyone's Rosters.

QuoteCCTA to get more new Buses, service changes, and other goodies.

If you like CCTA's newest buses, get ready to see more.


On Tuesday, CCTA's board members signed off on a contract with New Flyer Industries for 150 Xcelsior XD60 articulated buses. This is part of CCTA's newest initiative to expand capacity and coverage to the region. The new buses will replace the current articulated buses that currently run on the 319 line. The newer buses will be running on the 34/35 routes and the 301 and 319 +Direct service, with some seeing service on other lines. The older buses will not be scrapped, though. Since they have enough mileage and are in relatively good condition, they will be sent to GREAT to help them expand their fleet and meet increasing ridership demands. 


In terms of local service changes, the 34 and 35 will be cut back to City Hall from Navy Pier - Waterfront Museum to cut down on trip times. Passengers in need of Navy Pier from the Greenville and Springfield areas must transfer to the 301 at City Hall.

Notes:


[/size]

       
  • The 34 and 35 run a mix of 40 foot and 60 foot buses during all times of the day on both weekdays and weekends. The addition of artics to the route came in late February 2017 after complaints of crowded buses from drivers and passengers. Rumor is, the line may become 80% artic and 20% standard by July 2017.

  •    
  • A new bus depot named South Cayuga City is expected to open soon. So far, the only route that will be transferred there is the 17. Route 62 will operate out of there using 30-foot buses. When more info is available it will be posted.

  •    
  • CCTA is looking into the options of expanding bus service in the outlying suburbs. An anonymous official has said that they are considering opening a Lakeland Bus Depot to be shared with Lakeland Bus Lines.

  •    
  • There are talks of either restructuring or eliminating the 102 bus. If it is restructured, it will be extended to Greenville High School. If it is eliminated, the 113 will make an extra stop at the Transit Hub to accommodate 102 passengers before continuing to Cayuga City.[/l][/l]

CAYUGA COUNTY COURIER

GREENVILLE TO SEPARATE FROM CAYUGA BUS SYSTEM                                                           June 11th, 2001

             In the latest developments of the Greenville Bus service fiasco, the town council has ultimately decided to completely secede from the capital's transit service. This stems back to released documents and emails mentioning that the amount of funding for Greenville's CCTA division was just under $1 million, which reportedly, is barely enough to keep the division running. The documents show that Greenville's expenses are up to 6 million in recent years, due to the growing requirements of the too-antiquated fleet that dates back to the late 1970s, and the raising of minimum wage, and on top of that diesel fuel prices (They rose 10% in the past 3 weeks). Frank Wussenthiere, of one the leading members of the council made himself available for questions after the announcement on Thursday. "It's been getting worse and worse since Lakeland up and left a few years ago. Frankly, I don't blame them. The company just doesn't care. We have the oldest buses in the system, and you can definitely tell. They have engine issues, transmission issues, lights that are out, missing parts, doors often don't open all the way so you have to push your way through a steel wall more or less. It's unbelievable. They told us we would get newer ones soon, but that was 1999. Now it's time for change. We can't live like this. The people who depend on these buses can't live like this".

The released documents indicated the separation would fully take effect on July 1st. The town also says new buses are on the way, from a company called "Nova". These are expected to kneel and have A/C for when the summer hits again, and will be in a new livery to be showcased when the first is expected to arrive by December. CCTA was not available for comment.
