    i heard on my scanner that the M15 was going to be rerouted through the FDR drive so the reroute would not be complicated and would not take to long. as they say +SELECT BUS+ needs to be fast. [small joke]

    I think it properly not going to reroute.
    On last President visit, M15 Local/SBS were on regular street with heavey delays.

    Which FDR Drive?
    There's no way bus could use FDR Drive north of 42nd St Exit.

    Hi mark1447! Grand Concourse and PATCOMan made a friendly suggestion in a thread I started that I thought sounded good and had merit to try. I thought a Subway and a Bus Random Thoughts Thread might actually help reduce a lot of these little service change, service alert, 12-9 and random threads that have been appearing by giving members a thread to post them in. If a member then reads them and wishes to comment, that's wondful. Maybe help to reduce some of the clutter, so to speak. Some of these - especially service changes and alerts are short term.

    Idk whats the purpose of a random thought thread for buses as we can make a thread for discussion or use the other random thought.
