      Long commute?

      NY-Waterbury and back (and not back to back, obviously). Also, the Waternury station is not as picturesque as I imagined it to be.

  3. You know what? I still have yet to ride an Xcelsior Articulated.

      Head to the Bronx.

  4. Oh that 40 (bee line bus) line! Fast to Mount Vernon and beautiful scenery. Hate that I have to transfer to the 42 to get to the (2). I wish it ran to the (2) every day, not just during rush hours (in the peak direction). Still beats taking the 20 to the (4).

      Lol.

       

      Going back to what I was talking in the original post, Id rather have the 40 run to the Bronx, during all periods of the day (to 233 on weekdays/241 st on the weekends), and have the 42 serve the Bronx rush hours only. Transfer wise, with the 40, one has to wait 21 minutes for the 42. Vice versa, a 42 rider would have to wait 9 minutes. The 40/42 don't even intersect at all (one has to walk a zig-zag route to/from the 42, that is if you know the area). Under the plan, the...

      I can't stomach the 20, the 40, or the 60..... But of the 3 out of WP, yeah, the 40 is the fastest..... The 40 in general tends to be hit or miss w/ how fast it is....

       

      I would elaborate more on this, had it been in a forum post....

      funny you say that... even though the route is long, I find that it gets to Canarsie - Williams pretty quickly....

       

      gettin out of manhattan is the hard/tedious part....

    3. BM5 via Woodhaven

      BM5 via Woodhaven

      @B35: I got out of Manhattan Quickly. From the Gowanus to Williams though, the ride was like an hour and 5 minutes, yet it felt like 3 hours.

      @Mark: Thats why I avoided taking the (N) or (Q) to the B103. I decided to take the BM2, to save time.

      Yeah, because if I took the train, who knows what would've happened...

  7. So I see, the snowflake effects are back...

  8. I have to sleep tonight, knowing that the QM15 and the BM5 dont run tomorrow, while the QM4 does ( <_< ). Oh well, at least I have the Q67 to go to the (7) tomorrow for the city

      See, this is the reason why my area needs sunday express bus service...

      Too bad there's 0 demand for it.

    4. BM5 via Woodhaven

      BM5 via Woodhaven

      I wouldn't say there is 0. There is more demand than with some of the the other QM's (QM4). Although it is kinda difficult planning Sunday service. In any case, if it were possible, I would give the QM15 like a 9AM-4PM Service to Manhattan, and 9:44 AM to 4:44 PM back. That would be sufficient enough for the QM15. On Saturdays, the 9 AM,10 AM, 11 AM, 12 PM, and 1 PM buses to Manhattan are the most packed, and vice versa from 12 PM to 5 PM.

  9. (Probably B35 can answer this question for me) The last inbound 12 (towards White Plains) having 16 riders??? Should I be surprised

  10. Jesus Christ it's like I attracted every bus foamer in Queens to the Q67 after my thread last week (because the Q67 would be the last route a foamer takes).

      Thanks for the Heads up!

  13. I love how the Ethan Allen Express and the Vermonter are on one schedule, even though they have nothing in common but Penn Station. The Ethan Allen Express is more an Adirondack Variation if anything.

      That's the thing, sometimes they don't. Just reload the video and get a different one.

      4P3607

      I remember when they first came out with the long ads on YT, one of the people I had subscribed to on YT had gotten adsense at that time, and I got into an arguement with them because of the long ads... The thing is, there was no "Skip Ad" button at that time! I wasn't going to watch at 30 second video with a three minute long advertisement before the video w/o being able to skip the ad...
