  1. The NICE Link is mostly for the areas of Bellmore, Merrick and East Meadow that lost the n45, n46, n50 and n51.
  2. NICE started their new Uber Service in the Bellmore, East Meadow, and Merrick area this week. http://longisland.news12.com/story/38742592/nice-unveils-on-demand-bus-service-through-mobile-app
  3. I can only guess that NICE gained a confidence boost from working with County Executive Laura Curran and her Deputy Helena Williams to come up with a vision for transportation in Nassau County. A lot of it hinges on the downtown revitalization project going on in Hicksville, that new Islanders Stadium being built at Belmont Park near the LIRR station, and the County doing something with the area around the Coliseum actually coming to fruition. They most likely plan to buy coach buses for their proposed service to Grand Central and Wall Street.
  4. NICE updated their website and released a plan for the future to go with it. They want to redevelop the Hempstead Transit Center, add more express service, and offer direct service into Manhattan. https://www.nicebus.com/About-NICE/Transit-Development-Plan
  5. A NICE Bus got into a nasty accident with an SUV on Woodfield Road in West Hempstead yesterday. https://patch.com/new-york/malverne-lynbrook/suv-collides-nice-bus-injuring-several-people

    NICE summer service change

    I can only assume that NICE had originally intended to release the summer schedules after the Transit Committee Meeting on June 28th, but changed it to the week before at the last minute. Only the n40/41 feels legitimate because I've seen new schedules installed at select stops in Hempstead showing the route with overnight service a few days ago.
  7. NICE's Summer Schedule will take in effect on June 24th. The biggest service change to occur is the n40 getting 24 hr bus service between Hempstead and Freeport starting this Sunday. I have no idea why older schedules are being posted for the other 9 routes. http://nicebus.com/Passenger-Information/Customer-Advisory-Committee.aspx
  8. NICE just introduced their new LINK service for the Bellmore, East Meadow, and Merrick area. http://www.nicebus.com/Passenger-Information/Safety-and-Security-(1).aspx
  9. The Babylon Branch is the fastest and reliable Line on the LIRR. It takes roughly 40 minutes to get from RVC to Penn by railroad, and another 15-20 minutes to get from Penn Station to 68th Street using the and . The passageways for the at Lexington/53rd are long and the trains tend to be delayed in some way. Ironically, the fastest route with least amount of transfers is taking the n6 to 179th for the (F), take the subway to Lex/63rd and walk to Hunter From there. Without traffic, it takes roughly 30-35 minutes for the n6 to get to 179th from West Hempstead around 5am-6am, and 40 minutes for the to get from 179th to Lexington/63rd. I've seen lots of people at Elmont and Hempstead use the n6 around 4am-6am to the subway, some of them hoofing it over to the Turnpike to catch the bus.
  10. The fastest and reliable way to Hunter College is to ride the n15 south to Rockville Center, catch the LIRR to Penn Station, connect to the (E) at 34th Street and then go thru Times Square to catch the (Q) for 72nd Street. Get off at the 69th Street exit of the 72nd St station and just hoof it west to Hunter.
  11. Summer Service for the n88 will be hourly this year. I'm guessing that they will be using the articulated buses to handle the large crowds coming off the Freeport LIRR station. http://www.nicebus.com/Maps-Schedules/Jones-Beach-Summer-Service.aspx
  12. The stop at Greenwich and Totten Streets in Hempstead is getting more usage ever since the Mineola bound stop got eliminated in April. It's definitely faster and frequent, but I wish NICE would have the n40/41 end service at 1 am as there are still people bound for Roosevelt and Uniondale coming off the n6 from Jamaica at that time.

    LIRR And MNRR Random Thoughts Thread

    This will definitely come in handy for late nights when I have to catch the LIRR.
  14. Truncate the Q2 and Q110 to the Queens Village LIRR station instead of having them terminate at Cross Island and Hempstead Turnpike.
  15. This is why I started taking the Q32 from Manhattan to 74th Broadway at nights. The is pretty useless nowadays as an alternative to the Queens Blvd Lines with signal malfunctions. I can already see the and being slammed as a result of this service change.
