  1. Since the bonus will be going down soon, would it make sense to start buying fares now to take advantage of the current bonus?

      Perhaps. I'm not stocking up on express bus passes to avoid paying $2.25 cents though, and I can't stock up on monthly MNRR passes either, but if you can get a nice savings, why not?

  2. A quick question: Can one transfer between NYCT subway and NICE on a metrocard? For example, if I take the subway to the LIRR, and then get on a NICE bus, will the bus deduct another fare?

      Depends on how much time passes by between dipping your metrocard on the NYCT bus, and when you dip your card on the NICE bus. If you dip it within the time limit, you should be fine.

      As long as you don't exceed the 138 min (2 hrs 18 min) time limit you should be good.

  3. A friend of mine found a lost easypay MC in school and gave it to me, I bent it to make it unreadable and gave it to a station agent and told her that it was lost by someone. Was that appropriate?

  4. I swiped my student pass this morning and the turnstile told me that I had a unlimited pass expiring in March...okay then.

  5. Some of the things I hear at Tech make me lose faith in humanity...

  6. hey, check your PMs when you have a moment

  7. Well....Brooklyn Tech is, to say the least, an interesting place.

  8. yay, riding R32s on Sunday as part of a school trip...incoming photo hype?

  9. apparenty XD40s are a thing on the B49 now. yuy for me

  10. lol see you next year at Tech

  11. yey, got into brooklyn tech

  12. I rode an R160B Siemens and the next two cars had dead motors...the ear rape was real.

  13. Do you think there's a chance that R32s might make an appearance on the (B) before they retire?

  14. Yesterday I saw a C40LF with HID low-beams...wut

  15. No R1-9 action tomorrow? Shame, the day I head out on the Brighton on a day of significance they don't bring out the good stuff...

  16. Saw an Orion VII on Ocean Av around 6AM this morning...some idiot rear-ended a VII. Guess who won.

      Well the car was banged up pretty bad, the VII lost it's bumper, and there was a pissed off B/O and supervisor standing about 20-30 feet from the bus. IIRC it was 4599 (don't quote me, it was 6AM) and the bus seemed to be fine, the lights were on, hazards flashing, engine running, and the LED sign was still flashing Q TRAIN TO PROSPECT PARK.

  17. ugh...taking the SHSAT this weekend...eventually it will be all worth it....

  19. Rode an XD40 on Friday...BEST SOUND EVER.

  20. I've been taking the Sea beach line daily now from C.I. to 18 Av, damn it's run down.

    1. Via Garibaldi 8

      Not only run down but dangerous. The stations in that area reminds me of the 242nd street station on the (1) line. Some of the stairs are so weak feeling that I feel like they're going to give on me. Are they shutting down both sides of stations on the (N) line, or are they piece mealing it? I'm surprised the communities in that are haven't been making more of a stink. They've been in deplorable conditions going back to my teenage years...

      Every time I walk on those stairs I get nervous. I usually wait until the crowd is gone until I go up since I'm afraid that the stairs Won't hshhhhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuuu& the weight.
