The New York Times City Room Blog has a piece today on the return of bell cords to New York City buses. It is specifically the new Orion VII Next Generation buses that have these bell cords.  While I think that these new buses are extremely ugly in general, the pull cords are a nice touch. Using the pull cord reminds me of the good times I’ve had riding the Vintage Bus Fleet in revenue service.
