  7. What would we do to the Rockaways? Do we demolish it? Or do we leave it until the MTA recieves more funding?
  8. Natural skepticism would have me approaching any situation cautiously.... In terms of the talking point though, I'm running with the assumption that the person is actually blind & in my immediate vicinity. As far as two people fighting, I'm not jumping into that shit either way (regardless if it's real or staged).... I'm not calling any cops either.
  9. I’d approach both situations cautiously. It’s not necessarily do-or-don’t. For example, a “blind man” may not actually be blind and is just using the opportunity to pick your pockets while you’re looking at other things for him. I could be socially responsible while being reasonably cautious by diverting some of my attention to my belongings. A man and woman fighting may similarly be two cooperating distractions for a third participant to opportunitsitcally pick the pockets of a good Samaritan; I’d just call the cops and be on my way if the cops don’t require me to stay there to keep an eye on things.
  10. Through 20120 has been built. 20120 is the first bus of the order for Academy Bus Lines.

  12. It was sent back to Jamaica. The train bolded was at C.I for maintenance and returned to service as an .
  13. It’s bogus because they only hit the delete button on some colored lines while leaving a lot of other things on the map. The and are running, but the —one of the busiest lines—isn’t! The duplicates the . The duplicates the . The Rockaways—the lowest ridership area—is still being served. But other than that a few improvements here and there would make the scenario more believable. The , for example, might serve both Hillside and Archer Avenues (forked in Queens). The might return to Grand Concourse. The might be extended to cover the loss of service in Brooklyn.
  14. An interesting topic. Here is my ultimate doomsday scenario: Reduced service frequencies. No service south of 14th Street. Reduced service frequencies. No service south of Times Square. Eliminated. Reduced service frequencies. Local service in Brooklyn terminating at Flatbush Ave. Reduced service frequencies. Service from both White Plains and Dyre Ave maintained. Local service in Brooklyn terminating at New Lots. Reduced service frequencies. eliminated. Otherwise unchanged. Reduced service frequencies. eliminated. Otherwise unchanged. Reduced service frequencies. Runs local in Brooklyn. Service to Far Rockaway. Lefferts and Rockaway Park served by buses. Eliminated. Reduced service frequencies. Concourse local run at all times, CPW local, 8th Ave local. South of Jay Street, will service the Culver line. Eliminated. Reduced service frequencies. Otherwise unchanged. Eliminated. Eliminated. Reduced service frequencies. No service south of Chambers. No skip stop service. Reduced service frequencies. Half of rush hour trains will short turn at Myrtle/Wyckoff. Reduced service frequencies. No service to Midtown, terminates at Chambers. Reduced service frequencies. From 179th, QBL express service, 63rd street tunnel, Broadway express to West End line. Reduced service frequencies. Otherwise unchanged. Reduced service frequencies. From Forest Hills, QBL local service, 60th street tunnel, Broadway local to Sea Beach line. Service to Bay Ridge via bus. All shuttles eliminated. Reduced service frequencies. Astoria - Broadway local service terminating at Whitehall. Eliminated. To further account for budget decreases, certain stations on each remaining line will be shut entirely, and others will be shut during off-peak hours. Walk to nearest open station.
  15. Looks like it was a sneak way to send more Siemens 160s to Jamaica.
  16. I thought more of the lower numbered R160B Siemens cars were going to be rotated to Coney Island yard to keep 120 cars in Coney Island. And what happened to 8918-8922/8928-8932, which was running on the a few days ago?
  17. Well kev2112 You were also part of the original certified so that strikes me as odd, because where I’m at was just newly certified as of Sunday
  18. I remember a couple months ago they had MTA employees standing by the gates , making sure no one went through the temporary gate while they were completing renovations
  19. There is no codebook. And why are you seeking bus codes?

  22. If I were to cut service on the subway it would probably be (these are not ideal cuts at all) Service will be cut on weekend to once every 15 minutes. Rush hour service will be run at once every 5 minutes Service will be rerouted and extended to New Lots Avenue. On Weekend service trains will run local along 7th Avenue.

Service will no longer operate south of East 180th St. Service will operate every 15 minutes all time except nights and weekend where it would operate every 30 minutes Service during rush hours extended to Bowling Green. and will be combined and operate at a lower frequency. Parkchester short turns will be maintained. Some trains will also terminate there on weekends as well. Service combined with at a slighly reduced frequency. Some trains to/from Manhattan will terminate/orginate at 74th St-Broadway Rockaway Park put ins eliminated. Outside of rush hours, train will make all local stops.to Lefferts Blvd every 16 minutes. Service to Far Rockaway eliminated on weekends. Transfer to Q52/53 Service is eliminated - Service will be eliminated outside of rush hours Service will operate local in the Bronx. Some northbound service will now short turn at 145th St. On weekends trains will run every 16 minutes and run local in Brooklyn Service will operate local in Queens and rerouted to Jamaica-179th Street.

Weekend service on the Fraklin Shuttle will be discontinued Haha Service eliminated between 125th St and Hanover Square There would also be adjustments to service guidelines that would permit service frequencies greater than every 20 minutes Overall, lots of service reductions. There will be severe overcrowding in some segments. These cuts are mostly not enough as well but its all I can think of without compromising the entire subway system Some form of OPTO may also need to be implemented
  23. They are completely different from each other; in fact, the 42 route signs can be interchanged with the 46 route signs since they have an horizontal rollsign setup. The 68 as well as its Kawasaki variant can only be interchanged between each other, not between the 42 and the 68 as they use a vertical rollsign setup.
  24. Its mostly just for the visuals. Its designed to show how severe this upcoming budget shortfall will be. Remember in 2010, those custs only saved roughly 400-500 million. I think subways will come out fine in the end, with further frequency reductions. Service was running during the weekend on most route every 6-8 minutes. That was cut to every 10 minutes in 2010. it probably go to every 15 min, if things really go south. Some express will probably go local and some locals will be discontinued outside of peak periods. Buses however will be slaughtered. Express bus will probably be cut significantly. Probably included is major frequency and span reductions.
