I noticed a commuter bus operated by Academy in downtown Manhattan today has a mobile radio (MCS2000) installed at the opeartor's position. Does anyone know what frequency/system does the radios operate on?

I'm pretty sure that the NJT north TRS reaches quite well into Manhattan. I would assume that they stay on the same TGID the whole way in...

Thanks, I'm having a pretty bad reception of the NJT system here in Queens, but I shall try the reception in Manhattan later.

In addition to the trunked NJTransit frequencies, Academy bus radios are equipped with 2 additional channels for their charter operations. The frequencies are duplex:

854.6625
859.7875
