  1. Manhattan Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    I don't necessarily have a problem with running all M34's to Waterside (and few people remain on along the 2 Avenue stops anyways so I guess it can be justified), but I cannot agree with sending every bus to Javits. The West Side does not need so much bus service, the M34 suffices. Additionally, I have seen people use the buses (during off peak hours) north of 34 Street. IDK how packed buses are during the rush, but it makes sense to run them to PABT. Without it, many who work along 34th would have to walk up to 42 Street or rely on the M11/M20 , neither of which is pleasant to have to connect/transfer to (each for their own reasons). People probably have long commutes before getting to the PABT anyway, and that would create a disservice for those going beyond PABT. I would look into attempting to bring back the M27 (perhaps during the rush hours), and sending the M50 somewhere else on the east side.
  2. I'll consider myself a lucky bastard, because I ran a little late, and without checking the MTA website, instead opted to try out taking the Q38 to the to the to the instead of the Q47 to the that day. Took a little less than an hour to get to Downtown Brooklyn. If you're coming from Queens, unless it's at night, I would suggest in the future to somehow make your way to the Q44, unless you live in Western Queens. It'll usually be as fast (or faster) that way (you can transfer at West Farms Square or at the Last Stop to a Bx9 towards Fordham). I personally have done that, but only when buses are running so frequent. Either way, travel from Queens to The Bronx ain't pretty (nor easy).
  3. You're talking about the North Fork Express Bus? They still have the schedule on their site, although the info is kinda hidden if you don't look at the main page closely. If what Hound is saying is true, then I believe that the poor choice of vehicles sent out might attest to that. They constantly sent out their old MCI's, and even some mini-buses. Imagine having one of these boys on a Downtown Bus. Haven't seen a cheese bus but they might have used it once. I can't verify unfortunately because I no longer take the Q88 out in the mornings. I would usually see them somewhere around Main or Kissena. 7 Bus I know no longer operates. I feel like someone else should have taken up 7Bus's operations partially (like Coach USA, revert back as Bolt Bus LI, or something), but that's for a different discussion.
  4. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    They only have the departures from 211 Street (6:20 AM to 10:20 PM every hour) & 6 Avenue & 36 Street (9:40 AM to 11:40 PM every hour), but besides that, you're SOL if you want to time it. My guess is that they expect people to use bustime.

  13. Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    That's what I would have hoped. Subwaytime had no listing for any train service between Jackson Heights and Forest Hills at times, so I wonder how much service was actually ran. Also, good morning fellow QBL riders!
