  1. Just to be clear, it absolutely would speed things up, there's a reason why they try to do them whenever possible. However, as other people have said, at least in New York, there are few places and times where you actually can pull them off.
  2. Glad to know that if I don't like somebody all I have to do get then arrested is go after their service dog 👍 /s That reckless endangerment charge is absolute bollocks, who does this chick know that she got someone charged for bringing their legal service dog on the train? I hope this guy lawyers up because that seriously sounds like an ADA violation. Of course he won't though because he's just a poor folk from Brownsville, thanks New York City for showing that yes, you are still courrupt and have no problem harming innocent people as long as you're able to spin it, not like anyone thought otherwise.

    Dog Attacks Passenger on 4 Train

    Surely when you all say dogs shouldn't be allowed on the subway, you mean dogs outside of carriers, right?

    Sunnyside Yards Plan

    Here's an idea. How about moving the Javits Center to the parts that can't do high rise development? It'll still be in a fairly central location unlike aqueduct, and it'll free up much more valuable land in Manhattan.
  5. Oh my god, who gives a shit? This is literally a goddamn game to them.

    Also as an addendum:
  7. When the third track project is done there's no longer going to be any direct Oyster Bay-NYC service, so you might as well make it go somewhere.

    Amtrak suitcase symbol

    It just means you can't check bags. You can still bring it as a carry-on provided it meets the size requirement and it's just the one. (Or is it two? Idk check Amtrak's carry-on policy).

    Department of Subways - Proposals/Ideas

    By installing switches just south of 50th St, and between Broadway-Lafayette and Grand St (This would be fairly difficult to do southbound but northbound is fine) you have the run over the 8th Ave Express, and the run via 63rd St and the 6th Ave Express. That, combined with moving the to 53rd St would completely segregate the , which allows for a very high degree of operational flexibility. Something wrong on the... ...8th Ave Local? Just run all the s via the , which can be done without causing any additional merging or delays. ...6th Ave Local? Just run all the s via the , which can be done without causing any additional merging or delays. ...8th Ave Express? Move the and to the local track, then move the to the , which can all be done without causing any additional merging or delays. ...6th Ave Express?

  10. These are pretty serious allegations, almost so over the top I can't believe them. The fact that their only defense was 'they weren't technically employees' is not a good sign.
  11. Headline is misleading since the real takeaway was that there WASN'T a raid. On that note, WTF? What a strange thing to say, twice no less.
  12. Hit the nail on the head for me. Sorry but the running local for three stops is not at all the equivalent of the entirety of the being out.
  13. Randall's Island maybe?
  14. People seem to be forgetting that any PATH expansion involves signifant construction in New York City. By extending the you eliminate that cost, which is likely to be the most expensive part of the project, which actually reduces the overall cost to New York as any of the cross-river projects are going to be funded by us through PANYNJ anyways. There's also a benefit for the city that's only available through a extension; Direct access to LIC from NJ and vice versa, which'll allow for untold development in the area. Don't be so quick to knock it. Also worth noting for the first time this gives Westchester/CT residents a two-seat ride to New Jersey and again, vice versa.
