  1. They already deadhead a train from Stillwell to W4 via Culver to mitigate these kinds of issues and it's still not enough... Maybe it's time to deadhead an into Manhattan via Brighton to mitigate this some more....

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    It’s flawed logic but I ain’t complaining 😆 Plus, they’ve put CNG buses at Gun Hill before (never an entire fleet, but no more than a handful... this ain’t my pic btw)
  3. Say no more. I love the idea! I've always praised the Xcelsiors over the Nova's anyway so why the heck was I even questioning the move? 😄
  4. 218's a regular run tho... My educated outside guess: GH is running way short on either buses or drivers because I've been noticing bigger gaps in Bx12 service (local and SBS) than the norm this week. The Orchard shuttle service has been almost non-existent also from what I've seen on Twitter.
  5. This was a nice surprise! i wonder why they sent it over to the Bx12 instead of keeping it at WF for like a Bx15 or Bx36 run?

    Museum of sex ads will be removed

    I got a good laugh out of those “Museum of Sex” ads. I mean sure, with #MeToo and all the political correctness out there in general it’s not the best of times to promote a sex museum on a government owned vehicle, but the ad in and of itself was not an offensive thing to look at. Also, the uptick of employees being harassed goes way beyond a sex museum ad, and I hope that this gets addressed also.

    They might be filthy, but they can take a beating better than the older LFSA's (So far so good with the new batch of Novas tho, let's see if those new artics can handle GH and KB's shoddy upkeep.) I personally like them white and blue XD60's.

    LIRR And MNRR Random Thoughts Thread

    I’m really digging the new “ETA” section on the Metro-North departure boards. We get arrival times down to the minute now instead of just seeing if the train is 6+ minutes late (it’s not on the website tho, MTA.info Traintime still shows status the old way.) What’s *not* to like about it?

    MTA to begin retiring MetroCards in May 2019

    How about this idea?

    That just makes the bus layover situation over there worse. And just so the beancounters can save a couple of dollars...
  11. I'll probably check it out at some point. FYI I think you'll be able to get a combined ticket from Metro-North (and vice versa) but I've never been able to figure out how to get such combined ticket from a ticket machine.

    Coney Island still had a yellow sign up (from 1987) until it's rehab started in 2001 so.... 🤷‍♂️

    Oops, I forgot to clarify that post. Yes, specifically Jamaica to Penn and vice versa.

    LIRR And MNRR Random Thoughts Thread

    If people find out that the LIRR will provide more service (6 tph) than the train (5 tph) during the day on Saturdays and Sundays while the Catch Bus To Continental project is going on, the would make a boatload of money.
