  1. Ok, some quick thoughts on the SIMs: -The Water Street ones ran pretty smoothly from what I could tell. SIM5s were bunching slightly and the SIM35 clearly needs more frequency from the long lines I saw. The SIM15 looked like the same patterns as the old X15 -The 7/33 are a disaster near Brookfield Place... very long lines and people getting passed up. They clearly underestimated ridership there. -Woo boy Midtown is a disaster... Not just 5th Avenue but 42nd Street too. Total gridlock due to the VMAs at Radio City and some stops blocked off by NYPD (of course they did not tell MTA or DOT that they would be blocking off stops). They need to put routes back on Lex

    I'm just trying to understand what's actually going on lol Unfortunately, there's a lot of people spreading baseless rumors on FB and running with them

    Where did he say this? Because I do not see a post from him saying that both sets are there, just one post from April when he said some sets may go there.

    They should have the X codes and the SIM codes simultaneously

    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    I have to give credit where credit is due: they did not hold my 5000 times outside 36th Street today. We didn't even stop, just went straight through the switch. The came about 5 minutes after.

    Another day, another dispatching snafu on 4th Avenue: This time I was on the and we got passed by an at Prospect. I figured that ok they'll send it in front... But no! We passed them at 25th and then stopped again in between 25th and 36th. Then the passed us and came to a stop at the interlocking and then they sent us into 36th first, wasting a good two/three minutes for no reason.

    Select Bus Service Discussion

    Somewhat related to that, I was on the M57 last week and this young woman gets on with a sob story and the driver lets her on, while her three friends sneak through the back. Of course the op sees this through his mirror and quietly rings them up for four F5s while trying not to laugh. That happens on Staten Island all the time lol

    Second Avenue Subway Discussion

    I'm sorry but Bay Ridge elite? The wealthy people in the area avoid 4th Avenue and the like the plague. They wouldn't give two shits about where the terminates, they just avoid it right off the bat because its a subway. The area around the train is working class and mostly immigrant. If you want to find the elites, go ride the X27. As a matter of fact, if you want to invoke their wrath, propose changes to the X27 and see how that turns out. I'm sorry but i just can't believe this argument. Now if you want to argue the ends in Bay Ridge because of Staten Island elites you might have a point (even though it was mostly Mayor Hylan's hatred for the BMT, but thats a whole other discussion)
