    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    I have no idea. However, an train was cleared and sent back to Manhattan from the Brooklyn-bound track at Jay Street. It just ended, but train service was bypassing Union Square due to an NYPD investigation. A train was diverted via Lexington.

    You mean the Bx36? In any case, the Bx36 doesn't even terminate in Soundview. That terminal is in Castle Hill, east of Soundview (and Clason Point).

    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    Brooklyn-bound trains are terminating at Jay Street. They're announcing to take B25 buses. UPDATE: The issue might be bigger than expexted: Service Change Posted: 10/16/2018 10:33AM Southbound trains are running express from Hoyt-Schermerhorn to Broadway Junction because of switch problems at Hoyt-Schermerhorn. Expect delays in and train service.

    The one in my area at 80 Street and Eliot on the Q47 is still open. So much for that.

    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    Service Change Posted: 10/15/2018 7:58PM Broad St-bound trains are running with delays because a train's brakes were automatically activated at 121 St. Broad St-bound trains will arrive at Sutphin Blvd-Archer Av/JFK Airport on the Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer bound track.
  6. That might explain the heavy delays and the "urgent track maintenance" during the height of the rush last Friday.

    MTA’s Troubled Travelers: ‘How is this better?’

    Okay but the thing is, it shouldn't have to come to this, especially since standees were a thing on the former X17J which the SIM8 replaced. The MTA said they would provide more frequent service. Well, where is it? They actually reduced service on the SIM8 in the PM on the October schedule. Completely unacceptable.

    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    Service Change Posted: 10/15/2018 8:50AM There is limited train service because of a signal problem at Times Sq-42 St. Southbound trains are running local from 34 St Herald Sq to Canal St. Expect delays in , and service. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Delays Posted: 10/15/2018 8:30AM Northbound and trains are running with delays because of a signal problem at Parkside Av. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Delays Posted: 10/15/2018 7:52AM 8 Av-bound trains are delayed because of a network communications issue at Livonia Av. UPDATE 9:15 AM: Looks like there are delays on the expresses on 6th Avenue. There are 'Delayed' readings south of 34 Street. Nothing on the MTA site. Stay tuned, this might evolve. They have this: Delays Posted: 10/15/2018 9:11AM There are delays and service changes on the , , , and lines because of a switch problem at 42 St-Bryant Park. Details to follow. UPDATE 9:19 AM: SB and trains are running via the to Jay Street, then via the to Coney Island. Some SB trains are running on the from Roosevelt Ave to Queens Plaza, then over the to Bergen Street. SB train service on Queens Boulevard is suspended. There is very limited train service everywhere (including on Myrtle Avenue). trains are running every 15 minutes on Myrtle Avenue. Some SB were rerouted onto 6th Avenue in order to avoid the signal problem at Times Square, only to be involved in the 6th Avenue switch problems. IDK if those rerouted trains may be the reason behind the 6th Avenue service change. There is no 6th Avenue express service SB. Not on MTA website. UPDATE 9:34 AM Official MTA notice: Service Change Posted: 10/15/2018 9:34AM There are significant delays and service changes along the 6 Av line because of a switch problem at 42 St-Bryant Park. There is no or service in either direction. There is no service in both directions between Delancey St-Essex St and Forest Hills-71 Av. Southbound trains are running over the line from 59 St-Columbus Circle to Jay St-MetroTech and then over the line to Coney Island-Stillwell Av. Southbound trains are being rerouted over the line from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to W 4 St-Wash Sq. Based on Subway Time: NB trains are stopping at DeKalb Avenue. SB trains are running via 8 Ave & Culver.

    SIM7 and SIM9 PM operations, Columbus Day

    Even after relabeling all the SI Express Bus stops, the stop at 5th Avenue & 35 Street still has a 'BxM4C Downtown' sign (and a brand new one too).

    SIM7 and SIM9 PM operations, Columbus Day

    They don't stop there anymore. That was from when the MTA implemented the (failed) X27B and X28B buses, which only lasted a few months in 2011 before they were replaced by the X37 and X38.

    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    Service Change Posted: 10/14/2018 3:44AM Some Crescent St-bound trains will end at Myrtle Av because someone is in need of medical assistance at Broadway Junction. Expect delays in both directions.
  12. Some stuff during the PM rush. There were some cases of buses falling behind schedule from the start of the route, and buses were being held at WFC, but other than that, that first day was relatively smooth. 2015 Prevost X3-45 Commuter Coach 2505 on the SIM33 at Broadway & East 13 Street by BM5 via Woodhaven, on Flickr 2015 Prevost X3-45 Commuter Coach 2504 on the SIM33 at Vesey Street & West Street by BM5 via Woodhaven, on Flickr 2016 Prevost X3-45 Commuter Coach 2679 on the SIM9 at Vesey Street & West Street by BM5 via Woodhaven, on Flickr 2015 Prevost X3-45 Commuter Coach 2504 on the SIM33 at Vesey Street & West Street by BM5 via Woodhaven, on Flickr
