    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    How is Casey Stengel Depot closing and Jamaica Depot construction going to work? I was under the impression that Jamaica depot would be closing during construction.

    What are the best MTA Bus route

    Back in the days the Q53 under Triboro coach would run express to Broad Channel and the Rockaways from Queens blvd. Those guys would fly down Woodhaven and Cross Bay Boulevards at like 50mph. Now that was real SBS not this crap they have now. Q44sbs at night is fast. Q35 is pretty good but is slow in the summer they could use antics in the summer.

    General SBS Discussion

    I have been on the Q44sbs with standing loads at 1am & 2 am when I get off work after a long day only to stand on my way home from Parkchester to Flushing. I believe they run every 15 to 20 minutes at that hour and even the buses heading in the opposite direction also have a standing load its a very heavy line.
  5. Does anybody know the code for the I LOVE NY sign? Saw a bus out of service last night with it and remember seeing a picture of it in the Daily News. Looks good at night with blue background and red heart. <a href="http://www.ttmg.org/photos/tlogan/NYMTA_NFI_7484b.jpg" title="Enlarge image" data-ipslightbox="" data-ipslightbox-group="g8136"><img alt="NYMTA_NFI_7484b.jpg" class="ipsImage ipsImage_thumbnailed" height="666" src="" width="1000"></a>
  6. They should have rebuilt the medians for a walkway and bike lane, like Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn. Leave the Q60 in the local service road and return parking spots to the left side of the service road instead of it being a bike lane that is hardly used. For the city to take away a lane from the main lane to make a bus lane makes no sense and to turn Queens Blvd into a traffic nightmare makes no sense.

    This was how the Q44 sbs was during the NorEaster sitting in the Bronx with about 20 other buses behind because they banned trucks and buses from the Whitestone and Throgs neck Bridge. Complete standstill for 3 hours.

    Why dosent the MTA start making the Q12 or Q13 do limited stops from flushing to Bell BLVD and also have a Q13 & Q12 make all local stops.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    In Cali they ride the bus asking for tickets, where here they board and hold the bus for 5-7 minutes inspecting everybody ticket.
  11. I would add Flushing, Main st and Roosevelt ave
  12. One of the issues is the lack of enforcement of the bus lanes and parking restrictions. Durning some hours on busy streets there is no standing 6-9am but you still have cars parked and trucks making deliveries. Bus Lanes for the Q44sbs in Flushing and Hillside ave cars are parked and trucks making deliveries. Also vision zero dosent help where traffic signals have been changed in order to slow down traffic ex. a stretch of 10 blocks would have been green lights together now you have a green light every 3 blocks and then the next 3 blocks is red. You just added 3 to 5 minutes to your trip on the bus.
