  1. Past hour
  2. 5560 had or still has an older rollsign
  3. Today
  4. ...you mean OMNY? lol To be honest, I wish they would expand to NICE more quickly because I keep getting screwed on the 2-transfers w/ Metrocard and OMNY is just efficient and easy to report if it mischarges me on my card. Metrocard is a real PITA to work with. It would be great if SCT would hop onboard too but if they don't have Metrocard as it is, it seems unlikely that they'll install pricey NFC readers on their buses, which when they break or malfunction, MTA or Cubic has to send one of their guys out to SCT to fix.
  5. Me too! I heard there will be a class in May. GOOD LUCK!!
  6. Yesterday
  7. Revised set of schedule changes will occur on May 2nd. https://www.nicebus.com/Passenger-Information/Now The n4X and n6X will return on May 3rd. The n15 and n27 routes will remain as is. The n4 and n16 service changes will go as planned.
  8. The more interesting thing for me will be when the suburban bus systems start adopting NICE if some of the stragglers (NJT won't, but maybe SCT) will adopt it this time around
  9. City voters vote for city politicians who put in city policies. With the elimination of the commuter tax the suburbs have no leg to stand on. Also point to me where there is elevated rail infrastructure within the core of Manhattan, or cutting off an actual park from the city.
  10. You'd have a point if 13th and 15th Streets didn't exist. And since the cars that used to take 14th Street haven't moved to 13th or 15th, nor 23rd, 8th or Houston, you don't have a point. After cars had defacto exclusivity to road spaces - with buses and bikes having to find gaps, this would be a balanced approach, as now bus and bike riders are getting the opportunity to have a faster and safer commute. What's the practicality of being stuck in a traffic jam or stop-and-go traffic for two hours? Asking as a former Los Angeleno and Sacramentan.
  11. Hi what is your list number around? I am in the 400's range so I probably won't make the first two classes. It looks like they are doing 50 per class. I submitted my pre employment on the last day March 5 but I have not gotten any response back
  12. This is off topic but I don't know what else to do and I really need some help figuring out what to do, so on my mtajob portal I applied to about 15 jobs some being track workers and so fort, but on most of them it's saying passed pre-screening as for applications status. Is there a number I can called or email because it's 2 to 3 years on some applications and I don't want to miss my opportunity and I always check my emails and didn't receive anything Thank you

  14. But does that mean the opposite must be embraced. The hardcore opposite, such as expansions of the 14th Street project to other streets? Why can't a balanced approach be possible? 14th Street bus may be practical during rush hours, but what about after rush hours, when there could be more cars on the street than passengers in the buses? Want to knockdown FDR Drive next, because it's an eyesore in Lower Manhattan, well don't put it past them. Funny how road infrastructure is always seen as eyesores while rail infrastructure isn't. Urban planners want to make a city look nice no matter what, while traffic engineers want to keep the city running practically.
  15. Can't run the to 34th when the portion from 59th to 47-50th is also closed and you also can't run the via 8th when both WTC and 2nd Av are unavailable for the second weekend due to a separate G.O., so your only option under these conditions is rerouting the to the Bronx.
  16. Submitted my pre employment app feb 22 and just got another email for me to submit the same paper work for April 15. So guess I’ll be submitting the same things..
  17. NGL, the was vauge with the wording of that G.O., unless they're planning to also do work between 59th and DeKalb, then it wouldn't make sense to send the to 205th regardless, although I'll admit that'll be pretty cool to see.
  18. So an R68 today opened doors on the wrong side of the platform.
  19. Because the CPW-7th Av transverse is closed for signal work. 2nd Av & WTC aren't available for terminals. There's no place you can turn around the which is why they're running the in its place...
  20. At 9th St waiting for a train , heard about 3 or 4 Siemens R160’s on the line and caught a R160B on the
  21. I agree. Things need to be kept simple. The MTA sure likes to complicate things for riders. I saw a sign saying that C is going to replace the D in the Bronx and Manhattan for 2 weekends due to work in Manhattan Bridge. WTF?? Is the C going to run along 6th Avenue?? Why are they disrupting service on 6th Avenue when 8th Avenue is being disrupted due to CBTC?? Why don't they just simply run the D from the Bronx to 34th Street like they always due whenever work is done on the Manhattan Bridge?? SMH!!
  22. Robert Moses once stated publicly that "cities exist only to be conduits for suburban traffic" (and thus aren't entitled to their own viability).
  23. Wasn't that the set that had major electrical problems at 59th St a few years ago?
  24. There's no codes for the S56 to St. George though.
  25. I think the simplest course of action is via 6th/Rutgers via Broadway. We can try other things but why not just keep it simple. Ironically, the MTA demonstrated that you can make the and all co-exist on 6th when it replaced the with the the last time they ran a G.O. like this. Simply slot in the where the was.
