    Unionport is a storage yard. East 180th is a maintenance facility and yard. They are/were bisected by mainline tracks the last time I was up there. When the yard dispatcher tells you that your put in is located on 24 track that means Unionport yard but if your train is on 8 track that means East 180 yard. Carry on.

    That’s where the negligence leads to liability. Because it didn’t enforce the rule, it created a situation where it’s liable for the act. Service dog or not, if there is anyone else victim of a pet or animal attack on a train, this woman will have a great chance of prevailing because negligence claims are bolstered by patterns. The bad thing about the lawsuit is that the reaction to it and the video means disabled persons using service animals are going to be treated shabbily by to prevent future animal liability claims.

    A couple of things to note: - The bus will be running out of Charleston, and will be relegated on the Lincoln Tunnel express lines, most likely the X17J. - This is not built to MTA specs, per the Alexander-Dennis people. It was built as a demonstrator for GO Transit in Toronto, Ontario. As such, the bus does not have a farebox upfront. I heard the farebox will be placed behind the front right wheel for this demonstrator. If the MTA does order the SuperLo, the farebox would be in front as is the norm...if they find a way. - The headroom in the upper level is low 5'7" and that is LOW. I'm 5'8", and my head was touching the ceiling. Many people had to crane their necks. I've never had to do that on a bus. - It was made in Nappanee, Indiana or so I was told. - The MTA plans to have off-board payment "concurrent" with a Smartcard, along with "robust" fare-evasion restrictions by 2020.

    This is an unfortunate incident and yet another instance where rule enforcement needs to be improved. With that said, should the victim sue the MTA for assault, the case would almost certainly be dead on arrival. For that kind of a crime, you have to prove intent to cause harm, which is not there despite the events that occurred. The MTA may be negligent in running their services and managing themselves, but they are not actively trying to harm riders, which would be the crux of any assault case. Negligence due to a lack of rule enforcement would be the better way to go and even then, it would be a flimsy case as the MTA has no control over the actions of the dog beyond ensuring they are properly secured. This would be tantamount to a person suing the city for falling on an icy sidewalk instead of the property owner. As for the latest developments on this, no one involved is completely innocent here, but we already knew that. The lady should not be provoking the dog like that and not expect the inevitable to happen. You don't poke a lion with a stick and not expect to get mauled. On the flip-side, one should not have to anticipate being attacked by a dog on the subway, which is partly why the carrier rule is in place. If one cannot expect their pets to behave and remain docile in a crowded environment, their owners should look into other ways of transporting them around, which is why she has a real case against the dog owner here.

    This is maybe the most common misconception about the subway. Last month, there were 7,356 delays caused by the ROW -- signals, track, etc. Sure, that's a lot, but there were 20,651 caused by "Overcrowding/Insufficient Capacity/Other," 7,888 caused by "Planned Trackbed Work," 4,963 caused by GOs and work equipment, and 1,393 caused by employee issues. The issue with the subway simply isn't maintenance. It's operations. Now, those signal delays, combined with the sick customers and unruly passengers do take up time, and given the sheer insanity they cause, generally draw more ire than the strange gaps and slow runs that the ops delays cause. But those situations too are made exponentially worse by a bad operating environment. Before timers and the encouragement of timid operation, the system had flex capacity. Remember that our signal system was designed for 40tph max, and given that most lines only run 20-25 tph per track, that capability translated into space for reroutes during service interruptions. With timers cutting capacity by as much as 12-15 tph in some areas, we simply don't have that anymore. When it comes time to reroute, we're adding trains to tracks which can't handle the load, causing the conga lines and grotesque commute times that plague us. The literal culture of the system also plays a role in this. T/Os, C/Rs and even dispatchers are so often disciplined by higher-ups that they have become wholly risk-averse to the point where they will eschew ways of keeping trains running in pursuit of career safety. We don't allow conductors on NTTs to open/shut just held doors (local recycle), instead forcing them to reopen the entire train, which just perpetuates dwell issues. We drill T/Os to operate below even posted speeds because we care more about trains moving than a functioning and accountable signal department. This kills capacity at the best of times, but during delays and reroutes, this managerially imposed cowardice and laziness makes it physically impossible to run trains in any organized fashion. The SAP somewhat fixes the signals, yes. But unless a holistic rethink of operating practices is undertaken, capacity will continue to decay, and delays will continue to be insufferable.

    So it appears I was wrong. I was under the assumption track 4 would be the one eliminated and not track 3. Of course, that'll mean the Times Square platform will have to be extended further east to avoid the northerly curve. As for the actual reconstruction, I smell another mess involving the historical preservation folks. There's way too much historical significance there that will undoubtedly slow down the process by a lot.

    Must we rehash this every day? The added transportation value of sending s up 2nd Avenue during off-peak hours is basically nil. The should have added service, and to facilitate better transfers to 6th Avenue - for all those on the east side who so desperately need to be at 57th and 6th instead of 57th and 7th - service should get a boost too. Sending trains to Forest Hills is certainly a possibility, though. The is pretty sad.

    Regarding the M105 idea, it would be easier to have the M101 take the north section and terminate with the M100 at 1/2 Av and expand the M98 to run at all times except late nights and extend it back to 32 St. And maybe add M102 LTD's at least rush hours.

    Recklessness endangerment and assault... He's being charged with that. Any lawyer will argue that service dog or not, historically pitbulls have a history of being vicious and dangerous, and given that, his owner should've taken precautions to prohibit what occurred. rules say that dogs are supposed to be in carriers. This dog was not, and even though he was a service dog, what occurred could've been prevented, so I'm sure the lawyer will say she was severely traumatized by the event and how can you argue that she wasn't? The video shows it all!! I mean sure she could sue him, but the man lives in Brownsville, so I doubt he's sitting on any money, so logically you sue the . They'll likely want to settle out of court and make this go away. Mark my words. Any service dog that I've ever seen prior to this was instructed to sit on the floor out of the way from everyone else. Instead this owner put his dog on the seat (did the dog pay $2.75 to sit on the seat?) NEXT to the passenger, had the dog banging into her, and then the owner assaulted her when she complained about the dog sitting on the seat banging into her and pushed the dog away. It comes down to this: When you enter into the subway, you're on property, and passengers should expect a certain level of safety, which falls on the to provide. They certainly don't expect to be attacked by pit bulls I can tell you that much. That's why Lhota acknowledged that it was not acceptable what occurred and said that enforcement of the rules would be stepped up. It opens the up for all sorts of lawsuits if this sort of thing becomes the norm.

    Times Square Shuttle Station, Reconfiguration and ADA Accessibility, Manhattan NYCT Contracts # A- 35302 & A-37116 Public Notification of the resolution of adverse effects upon historic property from the reconfiguration of the Times Sq. Shuttle Station impact determination, in accordance with 36 C.F.R. § 800.6 governing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as implemented by the regulations of the Federal Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, “Protection of Historic and Cultural Properties.” The Times Sq. Shuttle Station portion of the Times Sq-42 St Station complex is listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NR04001016). Description of Times Square Shuttle Station in Manhattan Built and opened in 1904, the Times Sq. Shuttle Station area, within the Times Sq-42 St Station complex, is a New York City Transit Subway Station at the terminus of the IRT 42nd Street Shuttle line. The Shuttle line services the ‘S’ train, also referred to as the Times Sq. Shuttle, that runs along 42nd Street between the Times Sq-42 St and Grand Central-42 St Stations from Broadway and Park Avenue through Manhattan, New York. NYCT plans to implement the reconfiguration and ADA accessibility of the platforms at Times Sq. Shuttle Station that was originally constructed as part of New York’s first subway line in 1904 according to the designs of Heins and LaFarge (architects of the original subway stations), and later reconfigured as a shuttle stop after the completion of the 7th Avenue-Broadway Line Times Square Station in 1917. The Times Sq. Shuttle will remain in operation during construction for public use except for a planned two-week closure to complete the work. The reconfiguration project includes the alleviation of deficiencies, such as lack of egress and circulation, and the lack of accessibility for disabled riders. This affects overall operations, station circulation and customer safety. This will be achieved by eliminating a portion of the curved track and platform and providing additional egress through the installation of a new station entrance and a second entrance at mid-block on 42nd Street. The Times Sq. Shuttle Station will be made compliant with ADA requirements by bringing components (such as lighting, communications, security, platform finishes, etc.) up to current standards and rehabilitating finishes – including repairing and restoring existing historic finishes. Impact of Project to a Section 106 Historic Property The Times Sq. Shuttle Station reconfiguration work will necessitate the removal of Track #3, the extension and widening of the platform, and the removal of several steel columns in phases of construction, while maintaining public access to the ‘S’ train Shuttle service. It has been determined that this NYCT project’s reconfiguration work will cumulatively have an adverse effect upon the historic Times Sq. Shuttle Station. Independent of the NYCT project is a proposed private developer project that may require use and occupancy of a portion of the Times Sq. Shuttle Station in order to install elevators and an escalator to the cellar of its building to access the observation platform at One Times Square building. In conjunction with the construction of the observation platform, the private developer would install an ADA-compliant elevator from One Times Sq. Plaza to the Times Sq. Shuttle Station for use by NYCT passengers. If this independent project is undertaken by the private developer, it has been determined that the northern termination of the original 1904 west platform wall cannot remain in-situ and be incorporated into the proposed design at its present location in a portion of the historic Times Sq. Shuttle Station. Resolution of adverse effects upon Section 106 Historic Resource pursuant to 36 C.F.R. § 800.6 As the Times Sq. Shuttle Station is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, NYCT has executed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) in accordance with 36 C.F.R. § 800.6(c)(1), with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and New York’s State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), to ensure compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 and this MOA shall govern the NYCT project undertaking and all of its parts. These parties have developed an MOA that outlines the agreed-upon mitigation required by the determination by SHPO that this project will cause an adverse effect on the cultural resources. The MOA implements mitigation measures including, but not limited to, the following: repair and restoration of the original southwest platform wall finishes and southwest control area wall finishes; repair and restoration of original cast iron columns, ceiling plaster ornamentation, cast iron guard rails, etc.; continued protection of the east platform walls that are located within Transit back-of-house space not accessible to the public; and replication of the damaged Knickerbocker marble lintel located at the west platform control area in the historic Times Sq. Shuttle Station. If the independent project is undertaken, a private developer may construct its elevators and escalator at the One Time Square Building. For this purpose, an Amendment to the MOA is to stipulate that the private developer is responsible for the documentation, careful cleaning and removal of the northern termination of the original 1904 west platform wall in sections with the least amount of harm to the historic finishes. Documentation, with architectural drawings and professional photographs of the 1904 west platform wall, will be furnished to the New York Historical Society and the New York Transit Museum. The private developer is then to protect, package and deliver the removed historic wall sections to the New York Transit Museum. This information is being provided for public notification, comments and review as the opportunity for members of the public to express their views concerning historic preservation issues and the nature of their effects upon historic properties by this undertaking. Please send us your comments Based on the aforementioned information, which involves the resolution of adverse effects upon historic Times Square Shuttle Station for reconfiguration and ADA accessibility, NYCT invites you to submit comments. Comments will be accepted until May 06, 2018 - 10 days after the posting of this message here. http://web.mta.info/mta/news/notices/pdf/MOA_Times_Sq_Shuttle_notice.pdf http://web.mta.info/mta/news/notices/pdf/Amendment-to-TS-Shuttle-MOA-for-Jamestown.pdf

    Good question: My assumption would be Broadway-East New York and New Lots & Ashford + B20/B83/B84. However, you also have the BM5 that's Spring Creek direct via Linden, Van Siclen and BM2 which stops only at Spring Creek Towers. Since I live in Crown Heights/Canarsie and I drive 90% of the time now services don't really appease me.

    I'll be the one to say it - the M101 is overrated & the M103 is underrated.... What you're saying here regarding splitting the M101 is what a couple of us discussed a couple mos. ago in either the [Manhattan bus proposal thread] or the [Bus random thoughts thread]..... Up in the more northern part of Manhattan, I remember when folks used to shun the M100 & bombard the shit out of the M101 back in my HS & early college years (mid-to-late 90's/early 2000's) & I could never understand it..... Then, (whenever the role reversal of sorts happened), the M100 became the more sought after/prevalent route north of Harlem.... I say that to say, yes, split the M101 & divvy up some of that extra/leftover service b/w the M100 & the M103.... The M101 b/w 2nd/125th & Ft. George/193rd is still a route that could hold its own as far as justification goes, but I would still provide the M100 more service than an M101 of sorts..... I, on occasion, take the M103 from the E. 30's (streets) to Chinatown - and nothing grinds my gears more in this regard, than seeing [3-4 M101's] and [2-3 M102's] minimum before an M103 shows up..... I wish I could honestly say that's an exaggeration, but sadly, it's not.... That ridership in/out of Park Row itself & along Bowery isn't near as weak as it used to be back in the say, the '90's & before the fact..... i fully agree. equivalent to the B5/B50 set up before the combination & creation of the B82. I'm not saying that the overlap should be 'x' amount of miles, but there should be some sort of adequacy standard if lines are to be split. I don't have a problem with an even split (meaning, with no overlap) of some route, if the riderbases from either end of the route has that midpoint as a ridership generator..... Well let's hope that Byford isn't John Simpson 2.0..... I'd like to be optimistic, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about the ultimate outcome of it all.....

    That’s not why riders are being lost to taxis, Uber and Lyft. They’re being lost to taxis, Uber and Lyft because of the endless delays/reroutes/service suspensions, excessive overcrowding, not to mention the continuously worsening experience of riding the trains in general - thanks to the ever-present homeless folks who treat the subway cars like their own personal mobile homes on rails, the garbage everywhere except the garbage cans, the mentally unstable loudmouths who feel they need to share the misery they call their lives with everybody else and of course, the self-centered morons who bring their non-service dogs onto the crowded trains during rush hour and risk injuring their fellow riders, as well as their own dogs (yes I’m referencing the thread about the pit bull who bit the woman on the train last Friday!) That’s why people would ditch the subway in favor or taxis, Uber or Lyft. Not because Transit is going to take people’s one-seat rides. For the longest time I was in favor of the , because like many on here, I felt always having a choice was the best way to make the subway more convenient for riders. But with the incessant signal, switch and mechanical problems that cause so many ripple effects systemwide, I’ve reconsidered that. And that’s why I favor the . Why is it so necessary to give Broadway-Brooklyn riders 6th Avenue service at all times? And please bear in mind I’m talking about after the train tunnel work is finished.

The driver & his helpers going (back & forth) & (back & forth) & (back & forth) inside the establishment.... I have the same question.....

    Probably the same as what some of these fedex/ups/dhl/etc. drivers do in Manhattan if they have to make a delivery/deliveries on one of the side streets in midtown or so - park their truck on one of the "avenue" blocks, then load all (or as many as they can on 1 trip) the packages/items that need to be delivered on that side street onto a 3-way convertible hand truck..... Then proceed making their deliveries, similar to how a mail carrier would.....

    And what, exactly, is wrong with that? If the traffic is heavy enough that the bus lanes cause a congestion impact, then that's when those lanes are needed the most, to move those buses past congestion. If the traffic is unaffected then removing the bus lanes will not have a positive congestion impact; in fact, it might encourage dangerous speeding.

    A few days ago...I saw this at 59 St-Columbus Circle. It's an uncovered sign, which depicts the old style in which subway signs were manufactured. The former service patterns of the to 168 St, 21 St-Queensbridge or Coney Island and to Rockaway Park or Bedford Park Blvd were taped over. Just a nice throwback to the old signs.

    This comptroller's report is alarming to say the least. Maybe the City should stop having so many damn fairs. Sunday I was on a BxM3 that went via Second Avenue. We CRAWLED from 96th down to 57th. I don't see how the M15 could've done any better. Cars parked all over the bus lanes on just about every block. It's a joke. I'm getting so tired of having to contend with people parking in the damn bus stops. It says no standing, yet every time I need to get on the bus, I have to go into the damn street to do so because some Uber or cab is parked in the bus stop waiting for someone to come out of some office building somewhere and they just sit there forever. Check out this letter though. I'm really interested to hear Darryl's response to this to because I agree that a lot of these machines don't work, they steal money if you have a pay-per-ride and so on. https://comptroller.nyc.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/04.2018-Letter-to-Darryl-C-Irick-MTA.pdf

    It sounds so simple, but in reality, what the passenger sees is this: Lexington Avenue/63 Street train closes doors before anyone from the can get on. train closes doors before anyone from the can get on. Brighton Beach Manhattan-bound train closes doors before anyone from the can get on. Coney Island-bound train closes doors before anyone from the can get on. A one-seat ride is so appealing because you don’t have to deal with shenanigans like that. One could say that the MTA could order conductors to hold trains. But if the trains are always delayed and have to make up time, the pressure always forces trains to keep moving.
