  1. The last sentence sounds funny. Trains Rerouted Posted: 09/14/2019 5:41PM Some southbound and trains are running on the line from W 4 St-Washington Sq to Jay St-MetroTech while we address signal problems at Canal St. Expect delays as we work.
  2. Some stuff from yesterday. As most of you are aware, almost all the 4700 XD60s the Q12 uses have been placed out of service because of bedbugs on the buses. Several SBS units were used during the PM rush on the Q12, in addition to one of the two XD40 buses from JA. Mixed in is also some footage of XD60s on the Bx6 from this past July. 2012 New Flyer "Xcelsior" XD60 4714 on the Bx6 at Edward M.

  3. With respect to the Q50, there's lots of people from Queens specifically who ride into Co-Op City. The problem is the routing in Co-Op City which spends so much unnecessary time when the same section served could be served at a comparable time or even faster than it does today. Obviously those people are not accounted for here and it's going to hurt them the most. Serving it during peak hours only isn't even a band-aid. The Q50 should serve Co-Op daily as it currently does.
  4. Most people, if not all going to/from Maritime College get off either before, or at Westchester Square. Only a small portion of people would be affected by the Bx42 serving it. Also, there's no need for the Q50 to serve Co-Op City the way it current does. Make it serve Bay Plaza, Bellamy, Carver, and Drieser loops and call it a day (or even follow the BxM7 route in Co-Op City. A lot of people at Pelham Bay continue on to Co-Op City from the south. This rush hour only proposal is BS.
  5. Monsey Trails trips from Borough Park run express to Rockland County after stopping in Williamsburg. They don't make Manhattan stops, or cater towards Manhattan commuters (there's a separate Manhattan service towards Rockland County).
  6. Yeah, at this time, out of nine Q12 buses in service, only one is an artic.
  7. Right now on the Q12 there are no 4700s. There's two standards and an SBS artic.
  8. That can't be. The LTDs all go down Seneca Avenue, while the locals run to Metropolitan Avenue.
  9. Too bad the shuttle bus doesn't help if you're trying to connect to/from the subway... Stations Skipped Posted: 09/08/2019 2:29AM and trains are bypassing Nostrand Av in both directions while FDNY responds to extinguish a trash can fire at that station. For service to/from Nostrand Av, use the nearby Shuttle bus stopping at Nostrand Av and Eastern Parkway.
  10. The orange one is the newer one. Why it was done, I have no idea. Some Xcelsiors have the original colors though.
  11. Part Suspended Posted: 09/07/2019 12:49PM train service is suspended between Broadway Junction and Canarsie-Rockaway Pkwy while NYPD responds to reports of an unauthorized person on the tracks at E 105 St.
  12. They should really just either bring back the (old, pre-loop) n2 with a few adjustments, or expand the Flexi to middays and Saturdays. It's absurd how the bus pulls in those numbers while running only minibuses and during the peak period.
  13. The initial proposal wasn't perfect, but if this is true, then IDK if I can agree with that either. The Bx8 carries very little south of Edgewater Park. Ideally, it should have been proposed to run there at the very least during rush hours. Given how Locust Point is very much suburban in almost every aspect, I believe that having the Bx24 would have sufficed down there. I'm actually surprised the neighborhood hasn't made too much of a fuss over the amount of buses provided. Also, ridership in Country Club is relatively small. Service would have still been retained between the neighborhood, Pelham Bay, and Westchester Square.
  14. Trains Rerouted Northbound and trains are running with delays because of a signal problem at 145 St. The last stop on some northbound trains will be 135 St. Some northbound trains will run via line from 145 St to 207 St.
  15. The artic implementation of the Q12 was weird, because an overnight run did use an SBS artic, but after that, standards roamed the route. Service went to instant shit when artics were suddenly placed into service during the afternoon. There were instances of two artics, sometimes even three artics bunching. This proved to be a little tedious when multiple buses wanted to drop off riders at one stop. Stop locations where the video was taken were Roosevelt Ave & Union St, Northern Blvd & Utopia Pkwy, Northern Blvd & Bell Blvd, Northern Blvd & 215 Street, and Northern Blvd & Westmoreland St. 2014 New Flyer "Xcelsior" XD60 4731 on the Q12 at Northern Boulevard & Bell Boulevard by BM5 Photos 2019, on Flickr Enjoy!
  16. Lol, beat me to it, I am also on my way to posting some stuff. I think it's rather because a lot of people believed that the standards would stay there for a while, and the artic implementation was very abrupt. For the pictures, if you see the arrow to the right of the picture, click it, and then copy the BB Code link, and paste it into your post. It'll show up then. Good stuff.
  17. If you count the trips during the rush hour between July and now, they have gone down overall. Most other times, the BPH on 14th Street is the same. The way the M14A/D were scheduled up to now was essentially as one route with branches. The headways are consistent on the trunk, but differ on the branches. The D branch got more service at times, so the headways ranged quite a bit, and so did A (although they were more consistent). Now, they are scheduled as two separate routes, with differing headways. This is okay for the individual sections (which has quite a number of riders), but makes it worse for riders specifically going across 14th Street, because now the headways are not consistent. You could be waiting 7 minutes and two buses will show up together (during the rush hour), where previously, it was at most a 2-3 minute (theoretical) wait. Factor in the traffic, and bunching, and the waits are still going to be terrible if you miss the wrong bus.
  18. While that's true, they've done it up to this point before the pick begins, and then running the route with an all-artic fleet when the pick starts. Those artics should have been there by the start of the pick. It was just poorly coordinated, especially since standards are not gonna be able to handle some of those loads under the new headways. If it was decided to implement artics and reduce the headways, then the artics should have been there. I can already see a problem with standards during the rush hour on the B38. The service levels were reduced quite a bit, where some 50-50 split of artics and standards will create problems. It gets worse when you factor in the bunching on the route.
  19. It's a BP bus and it's 2871. It's out right now on the QM4.
  20. Here's an overview of the schedule changes that went into effect on September 1st. Some are not up, such as the Q22, Q35, and Q53 schedules.
