  1. trains don't get swept at Brooklyn Bridge. They get swept at Pelham Bay Park... 95th Street does sweeping for the IDK if Metropolitan does it for the or not.
  2. I could totally get behind this...

    Here's my thought's on this afternoon's B division meltdown, summed up in one meme:

    FAKE NEWS! There's no way they'd ever hit the because both lines use Montague regularly, like last night when the signals at Canal Street malfunctioned

    Now why the hell would there ever be trains to the Rockaways every two minutes? There's nowhere near the ridership for that on the entire peninsula...
  6. 3) Rolling Stock (I'm looking at you, 75 foot cars)
  7. It's a damn shame that in-house leadership was so complacent that it took hiring someone from out of the country to do something so obvious.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    If they roll out all the features that they had during the test period on the Q44 that would be great. Transfers, BusTime arrival info for connecting buses, maybe even intergrate Subway Time data...

    MTA to begin retiring MetroCards in May 2019

    I remember those ads lol. Why they included LIRR and Metro North clips when the MetroCard was never intended for them was beyond me

    They are the same screens as the XD40s, however I don't thing the lack of transfers is permanent... I think once more buses have the screens, they'll fix that.
  11. The X28 runs 7 days a week now, so there's no point.

    I personally think the current is fine outside of rush hour, but the Nassau would work as a rush hour supplement quite well... I seem to remember Wally or someone else coming up with a Nassau that did something similar... I'd personally use the K label for a Bay Ridge-Nassau service since H is the internal label for the Rockaway Park Shuttle.

    So this weekend, there's this GO on the : How possible would it be to extend the to West 4th Street via the and turn a three seat ride to Lower Manhattan ( - - or ) to just two ( - or )? Obviously the would have to merge with the and to relay, but I feel like with 10 minute weekends headways it could potentially be done on paper...

    The one problem with that is that those short turns either become trains at Broad Street in the PM, or were trains to Broad Street in the AM...

    This probably means nothing but the renderings in Cubic's press release showed the current MetroCard branding just without the mag stripe.
