  1. Brooklyn Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    Could you elaborate on the new route the community was recommending back then?
  2. R179 Discussion Thread

    It almost seems like they were trying to couple the two together... it's just odd they can't couple all the NTTs together like they could with R32/R42..
  3. MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Heading to KingsBro CC right now... and yes its Trackable.
  4. R211 Discussion Thread

    By this logic Buses should follow suit and feature less seats then people won't complain about being flagged.... Personally I love Gangway trains like the next person but sharp turns effect the passage through the gangway; The R211 mock up on display features a low ceiling gangway that the average person in height would hit there head on.... I don't know but simple common sense would let anyone know you shouldn't use OpenBVE to validate whether or not a idea is efficient....
  5. R211 Discussion Thread

    You and I wouldn't know what they decided on base of the initial phase of conceptualising the prototype...they could've decided against some of the system constraints to make a more fluid design... for now I'll wait before I past anymore judgement...
  6. R211 Discussion Thread

    All jokes aside the R211 cars are going to be High tech Cattle cars...between all the LCD screens,the interactive maps and LED lighting featured in this design, the reduction in seating is going to be problematic at best.Riders already complain about seating on the recently made rolling stock, the R211 will only Sky rocket those complaints.... And the Gangway is another point of contention forget about standing or moving through the gangway if you are taller than average the space is meant for shorter riders...Don't know if they can redesign gangway itself maybe because of system constraints but the Gangway Cars are going to be treated like the current 75 footers being that they can't run on lines with sharp turns defeating the gangway hype IMO... hotmess!

    9:50am R179 3065 leadcar heading to Jamaica.
  8. R32 Fleet Swap Discussion Thread

    Here are my thoughts on the situation: : R46s and R179s (5-Car sets) : R32s & R46s : R32s & R160s (4-Car sets) : R160s : R160s & R179s : R46s & R68/As
  9. R179 Discussion Thread

    This don't add up... 40+160+120 = don't equal 300 R179s on order... you math is 20 cars more than what was ordered...
  10. Thanks for the update
  11. R179 Discussion Thread

    So... Is the MTA canceling the order or they going to continue testing until the R179s get it right???
  12. Rally to bring back and improve B71

    To be honest I always thought the B71 went nowhere so, when it got cut back 2010, I was like oh okay not realizing its use...But, this proposal highlighted the B71 ridership base to which I was oblivious to;the Lower Manhattan link would also be a boon to this route if the MTA approves any of this...my only fear is they might give it the B37 treatment and run it every 20 minutes or something along that line...

  14. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    On RTS 5082 B6 westbound and a sensor is making a beeping noise ... the driver isn't making any attempt to assess the source of the noise...Does anyone have a clue what could be wrong? I mean he is driving has if nothing is wrong so may be it's a check engine noise,I got no clue help!!! Thanks
  15. The PA System is not useless and they can be turned up if need be however the problem is too many people ignore them to consider what its saying vs it being too low. Besides I have countless experience with the countdown clocks on the L train and the IRT to tell the mass that there are glitches in information seen on those screens, hell sometimes they don't even work or display the next train info. Lastly i'm not against add more countdowns on the platforms or relocating the current ones but this article is make this seem like the countdown clocks are a deal breaker for people taking the subway, as if we haven't gone decades with said technology. You hit the nail right on its head. Some angles of the story was taken out to undermine the progress they are trying to make.
