  1. @Lance With the Q3 2019 update to the Capital Program Dashboard finally up comes this update: design for the Mosholu Parkway ADA project is now in the '15-'19 program. http://web.mta.info/capitaldashboard/allframenew_head.html?PROJNUM=t7041344&PLTYPE=1&DISPLAYALL=Y
  2. They are not up yet. Expect them soon. The MTA will go through with these cuts: Keep in mind that there will likely be other cuts, but they won't meet the threshold to bring to the board. Cut a trip here, cut a trip there. See this:
  3. This, along with the Transformation Plan, and the debt that will be accumulated through the 2020-2024 plan will kill the agency. Here is the great scoop by Clayton Guse: https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-mta-financial-plan-20191111-oct2fcgl3jg35pytvffgqn7wyi-story.html?mc_cid=a176f4022c&mc_eid=4c4d316e23
  4. This is new: Plan Your Trip in the New Network Use this tool to get a hypothetical preview of Bronx bus service in the proposed network. This future trip planning tool includes all the proposed stop changes, routing changes, and new schedules proposed in our Final Plan. It covers one of week of service, from October 4, 2020, to October 10, 2020, so that you can test out both weekday and weekend trips. A few things to keep in mind: This planning tool represents what Bronx bus service would be like in the future and is not meant to be used as a trip planner for the current bus network. Routes that travel to boroughs that have not been redesigned yet will use existing stops, routes, and schedules for the portion of the route in the non-redesigned borough. For example, the portion of the Q50 LTD that runs in the Bronx will use the new stop lists, routes, and schedules. The portion of the Q50 LTD that runs in Queens will use existing data from the current Queens Bus Network. As additional borough bus networks are redesigned and stop lists, routes, and schedules are reconfigured, we will add them to this planning tool.
  5. Look at this! They are being less transparent and are using Quarters instead of months! https://new.mta.info/queensbusredesign
  6. I don't have a copy of it, but I am really good at gaming Google Books using this website.
  7. That entrance is needed for capacity. Screen Shot 2019-11-08 at 2.11.37 PM by Union Turnpike, on Flickr Look at this lack of transparency! No more NYCT information!
  8. I saw it. I didn't realize there was no topic for it.
  9. @RR503 Yesterday, as the T/O of my was waiting for the lineup at 75th, he was doing pushups in the cab against his seat. That was a first. Once we got yellow over yellow we were in the station for a minute or so because 71st Master put the holding lights on for some reason.
  10. The announcements on the Q46 can't pronounce CR in 78th Crescent.
  11. The 1988 service plan improved service by moving the merge to Briarwood. http://www.laguardiawagnerarchive.lagcc.cuny.edu/FileBrowser.aspx?LinkToFile=FILES_DOC/QUEENS_FILES/03.012.0231.030147.3.PDF

  13. They are busy examining the alternatives to give the illusion that they were considered.
