    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    This change lit up almost the entire service status box to "Service Change" . Thought the subway went to hell all at once. Service Change Posted: 04/21/2018 12:32AM There is no train service in both directions between Bowling Green and 86 St because of an unauthorized person on the tracks near Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall. Travel alternative: Passengers can take nearby trains and M101, M102 and M103 bus stopping at nearby train stations.
  2. Also, couldn't they have considered the M5 terminal? IDK about the M4 change, but something about that makes me thing that it'll leave it open for more short-turns to be implemented on the northern portion of the route. It wouldn't be so bad if service was added on the other routes, but knowing how the MTA works, that's not going to happen. LMFAO at the original proposal though (discussed in the alternatives). If this doesn't show you how desperate the MTA looks to cut bus service, then I don't know what will. Keep in mind that if the Q32 was to be cut, 41st Street wasn't even an option. That alone would have destroyed a sizable chunk of PM ridership: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From the service Increases and decreases, notable changes include: B70 Weekday Midday will go from every 30 minutes to every 20 minutes Bx32 Weekday Evening service will go from every 15 minutes to every 20 minutes B44 Sunday morning and evening service resuctions B46 Saturday midday and evening reductions (Again) and Sunday service reductions throughout the day B82 AM and PM service increases X27 Saturday evening and Sunday AM service will run every 30 minutes instead of every 60 minutes

    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    Much like WaHi to reference Washington Heights. The first time I heard that, I was like WTF?!? First the natives start getting priced out, and then the neighborhoods get "renamed" losing any original value, just to appeal to the hipsters.

    Routes that I have taken from end to end include: Bronx: Bx5, Bx6, Bx8, Bx11, Bx15, Bx17, Bx19, Bx21, Bx22, Bx27, Bx31, Bx32, Bx33, Bx34, Bx35, Bx36, Bx46 Brooklyn: B8, B11, B15, B16, B35 LTD, B37, B39, B46 Local and LTD, B54, B60, B61, B62, B63, B67, B68, B69, B70, B100 Queens: Q10 LTD, Q19, Q33 (post-LGA), Q35, Q49, Q50, Q52, Q64, Q67, Q70, Q88, Manhattan: M4 (from Fort Tryon Park), M5 (both pre-1/2018 and post-1/2018 routes), M7, M12, M20, M50, M86, M104 I haven't included the Q48 and M60, because the term full route might differ from person to person. For those routes, was does the "full route" consist of in either direction? Or would the full route be the full loop?

    6th Avenue is shut down for track maintenance (according to the MTA website). trains run via the in Manhattan, and via the in Brooklyn. trains runs via the south of Barclays, and via the between Lexington Avenue and Barclays.

    If trains had to run slow, it may be to reduce delays. trains are running to 145th only, so they have to use the lower-level with the . That way, there's no merging further north.

    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    Every single time the goes via Broadway Express and West End, something gotta happen... Service Change Posted: 04/14/2018 8:54PM Some southbound trains are stopping along the line from 36 St (QNS) to 57 St-7 Av. Southbound and trains are making local stops along the line from 57 St-7 Av to Canal St. These service changes are because of signal problems at Times Sq-42 St. You may experience delays on the , , and lines. Our crews are on site working to correct the signal problems as quickly as possible. We'll keep you updated.
  9. The ferry frequency is hourly, except for a split half-hourly stint during the PM rush. Even though there is a guaranteed connection to the ferry, hourly buses are just not going to cut it. There should be more ferry service (so that more buses can be added), which can help boost overall ridership on the services.

    That's a new way to explain stuff... Service Change Posted: 04/12/2018 12:07PM Some Main St bound trains are running express from 74 St-Broadway to Mets-Willets Point because of proactive track maintenance between 52 St and 61 St-Woodside.

    It was separate from the other service change, should have made it clearer.

    Service Change Posted: 04/11/2018 6:17PM Some northbound and trains will end at 42 St-Bryant Park. Some southbound and trains will end at 145 St. Northbound trains are running express from Canal St to 59 St-Columbus Circle. These service changes are because of switch problems at 59 St-Columbus Circle. Expect delays in , , , and train service. ------------------------------------- Apparently something's going on at Roosevelt Avenue. Train is being held for an investigation? We'll see if something shows up.

    Manhattan Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    The Downtown Connection buses (which you saw) are free. They run roughly every 10 minutes, from 10 AM to 7 PM. That partially explains the difference in M22 headway between the AM (every 7-10 minutes) and the PM (every 15-20 minutes).

    Nope. This used to be an issue on the 24-hour routes, but the more recent MTA schedules somewhat solve that issue (of guessing which trips run and which don't on Monday Mornings). However, they gotta fix some of the schedules, as some of the schedules initially look like overnight service is halved, but in reality, one half is listed first, while the other half is at the end of the respective timetable. Maybe that's another way of deterring ridership. That, and the outdated schedules the MTA purposely posts for the Queens express buses after taking down the accurate bus schedules.
