  3. From what was checked on the B46-SBS, the Kings Plaza weekday departures are trimmed to 5 mins instead of 3 during the PM rush. But, there maybe more, just looking back now from before on other routes. Difference is that Monday, the 5th is a Saturday schedule. But no surprise on the Q22, Q35 and Q53-SBS with headways 5-10 mins since today is summer.

  4. For this to better work, I'd be considering rebuilding Atlantic Avenue on the to at least four tracks (most of the infrastructure there was NOT torn down other than mainly the part that curved off to the Snediker Avenue platform, so this could be done), setting up where either this incarnation of a train terminates there OR the is shortened to/from Atlantic Avenue to better serve the much more heavily ridden part of the line past Atlantic with this version of the replacing it to Canarsie. This would be a maximum of 8 TPH and would for now supplement the in Brooklyn while the is mostly shortened to Chambers save for 4 TPH that either would continue to Broad Street OR run with the to South Brooklyn on 4th Avenue, terminating at 9th Avenue on the so the handful of trains that did that did not interfere with the . This version of the would be a 24/7 line and would eliminate the need for the shuttle in the overnights as except for Whitehall Street, this would cover ALL of those stops. 1. If you're running a train every 7-8 minutes you don't need a full terminal, 2. The will be running air 3. Leave the alone, as someone who regularly takes the its only problem is that once the train is screwed.. it's screwed. You either have to take the train or the M14 bus to wherever you need. The wouldn't be helping in terms of that and Canarsie will just be seeing the same service on a different train. The is frequent, it runs when it needs to, no need for the there. 4. I forget why 9th Avenue is a popular terminal.. but if you really wanted more service to 95th St, you'd probably cut the back and keep the shuttle/ local (overnight) 5. You're not making anything work better either, the problem is trains would all be at max capacity (Looks like you'd have to cut service, and any service (The service that Bay Ridge Riders preference) that's left would be extremely packed. There's too much merging for this to work, increasing service means cutting services and specifically service East of Broadway Junction.. The will be merging with the and that'll only make trains worse...

  5. People always tend to say cut the never ride it on a daily basis and don't understand why it works. The whole point of the skip stop is to entice people from the who are going to lower Manhattan to take the Jamaica Line instead. And there were times where I got to Manhattan a lot faster than the during the AM rush (7:30am-8:30am) Cutting the would be pointless because you are adding more time to the during those peak hours.

  6. Doesn't change the fact that the is an entire line, the is like 13 stops back and forth it'll take you maybe 20 minutes to get to the other end of the route. The is about double that.

  7. The , , trains already serve as alternatives for the and . Lets say CPW is down, and the SAS is running to St. Nicholas without the connection to CPW, you'd have trains covering service from 207 to Chambers St, service covering the Bronx (where you can transfer to the at 149th St, or at Atlantic Av, for Broadway Service (which is right next to 6th Avenue) at Union Square, 59th or 125th - Lexington. There's option without you needing to connect service to Central Park West. That's extra, unneeded work for little reward. You're making it seem more simple then it is. 5th/Lenox won't been an issue all the way up to St. Nicholas won't be an issue either, but once you get to Amsterdam, you're constructing under a fault that'll make the station super expensive. If I was the MTA I wouldn't even bother.

  8. Because the is a full-length interborough route and the others are short intra-borough shuttles.

  9. That would be EXACTLY how I would do it: Use the additional tracks going into 135 to connect an SAS at St. Nicholas/125 to the 8th Avenue line. This would create far greater operational flexibility where if something happened on CPW for example that prevented services between 59 and 125 to operate, the and could be re-routed to where they run on the SAS to 63rd, then run from there via 6th Avenue, with the on its regular route from there and the going on 6th Avenue to West 4th, then returning to its normal line after there. Also the opportunity to have Yankee Stadium specials on the SAS as well as potentially for example a that continues via 125 and 8th Avenue to the Concourse Line, further helping relieve the with some people changing at 161 for example. It is already supposed to actually go to around 5th/Lenox Avenue on 125 for storage IIRC. It would just continue across 125 in this case to Broadway/12th Avenue.

  11. The idea is whether or not you can make smaller connection changes to the system, without forcing a new East River tunnel. A new east river tunnel would be extremely costly. So instead, you route the SAS into Nassau. This is done by the construction of a new tunnel between Grand St (SAS, ) and Chambers ( ) . The Chambers station has a lot of tracks, the station can be realigned so that the and terminate at Chambers and the SAS trains continue through Chambers to reach Fulton, Broad, and the Montague tunnel. The question then remains about what should run in the Montague tunnel. Right now, the default is that the tunnel is exclusively for use by Broadway locals, and not even every Broadway local uses it as trains terminate at Whitehall. One possibility is that you continue leaving Montague tunnel to be under the exclusive (revenue) use by Broadway locals. One train can continue under existing trackage as the 4th Ave local in Brooklyn, and with a little bit of new construction under Brooklyn land, the other trai can be run thru the Transit museum to serve as the Fulton local to Euclid. Doing this would mean terminating all SAS trains in Lower Manhattan at Broad Street Anothe possibilty is to terminate all (revenue) Broadway locals at Whitehall and give over the exclusive use of the Montague tunnel to SAS trains. As in the previous paragraph, the Montague tunnel trains (now being SAS instead of Broadway locals) could run as 4th Ave locals or Fulton locals, with construction of a tunnel in Brooklyn from the Montague tunnel mouth to the Transit Museum stop. One benefit of doing this would be to provide more connections in Brooklyn for the SAS, but it would be at the expense of Broadway local service and possibly keeping Broadway local service from reaching a yard in Brooklyn. Another possibility is a hybrid approach. 1/2 of Broadway locals and 1/2 of SAS trains terminate in Lower Manhattan (Whitehall or Broad) with the other half of trains continuing into the Montague tunnel. Currently, both the Rutgers tunnel and the Montague tunnel are not running at capacity. More trains should be routed through those tunnels before a new Manhattan-Brooklyn tunnel is contemplated.

  15. Given the history lesson and reasoning behind why the Skip-Stop is still existing today, wouldn't that mean that said Service Pattern can not be eliminated unless some Serious capital investments are made to the Jamaica Line? Ones that the (sadly) have no interest investing in?
