Locals may have noticed that DeCamp buses have gotten a makeover. The company tweeted this announcement a few weeks ago:
DeCamp Bus Lines have acquired new buses to the NY lines. Buses are white and no longer green.

Some residents are questioning whether the plain white buses with either no or very minimal DeCamp logos are a sign that the owners of DeCamp might be looking to sell the business. Baristanet’s calls and emails to the management about the new buses have gone unanswered.
Still, we were wondering how commuters felt about the new buses:
Evan Cutler, a Montclair resident who commutes on the 66 and the 33, says that new bus smell is a plus and that the drivers he has spoken to say they love the new vehicles. He does note, however, that the aisle seems much narrower. “If you sit on an aisle seat, prepare to be banged by bags, briefcases and backpacks,” says Cutler, who adds, ” I also noticed it only has room for 8 standing (I think) which might have something to do with the narrower bus.”
Are you a DeCamp user? What’s your take on the new buses?
