  1. Assuming permanent damage (a few weeks): Shuttle buses between Queensboro Plaza and Astoria-Ditmars, with a stop at Court Sq. Trains run to 96th St, with some terminating at 59th St-Lex at peak times, local in Manhattan. Trains suspended
  2. I would so go with Option 1. I daily commute to school as well, and I would hate to have to make so many transfers as I want time to rest or study or something else on the train. Not only is it a great option because you have the F, you can use the R or the E if something goes wrong. A 5 block walk really isn't bad, trust me.
  3. Don't know the answer but this is the wrong forum. Post in the random thoughts thread, if you can.
  4. Why are the breaks on the Geometry Car so loud? I've never heard any train with breaks that loud with screeching coming from hell I'd guess
  5. This is assuming the Broadway line is NOT affected... On 6th Ave: The downtown local track is used as the downtown track for ALL trains, and the downtown express track is used as the uptown express track for ALL trains (between W4 and 42nd) Service reduced Normal express uptown, local downtown Normal local downtown, skips 14th and 23rd downtown Trains routed to Chambers St, change at Essex for Local from Canal to 34th, Downtown normal Some trains begin/end at 34th St in order to alleviate congestion on the local tracks (Assuming the switches north of 21st also have problems) - Select trains terminate at Bedford-Nostrand or Nassau Av, with limited service to Court Sq
  6. South Ferry - Chambers, 42nd (non-Rush Hour) or 96th (Rush Hour) to 242nd Flatbush - 14th St (w/ some trains via Lex), 42nd - Wakefield via Express New Lots Ave - 14th, 42nd - 148th via Local via 6th Ave Express between W4th and 59th Terminates at 14th St by using express tracks north of Canal St, then running express to 14th and switching back using the switches north of 23rd St, which should be in the cleared area (yeah, I know, extra) via 6th Ave local between W4th and 5th Ave, reduced service w/ reduced service on the between Essex and Queens as well. Shuttle buses serve non-serviced stations on 7th Ave, but (imo) not required on 8th Ave LIRR: - All Hempstead, Far Rockaway, West Hempstead, Babylon, and Long Beach trains routed to Atlantic Terminal. Use for service to Penn. - Port Washington, Ronkonkoma, Port Jefferson (non-diesel) trains rerouted to Hunterspoint Ave. Use Hunterspoint Ave for Penn service. - Montauk, Oyster Bay, and Port Jefferson diesel trains to Long Island City. Use NYC Ferry service (cross-honored) or trains at Vernon - Jackson for service to Manhattan. - Service reduced on all lines, CTZ train service suspended. NJT: - Northeast Corridor, Raritan, and NJCL trains routed to Hoboken, ferry service is increased and cross-honored. Services reduced slightly. Amtrak: - All trains terminate at Secaucus Jct in the south, Northeast Corridor & Acela terminates at New Rochelle in the north while Adirondack, Empire, Lake Shore trains via MNR to GCT directly. MNR cross-honors Amtrak tickets to provide service between New Rochelle and Manhattan. - Bus service provided between Secaucus Jct. and GCT I don't have time right now to figure out the buses, sooorry. I might edit and do it later.
  7. Let me try an actual scenario... Breaking News! Due to a recent hurricane both the East New York and Jamaica Yards have suffered significant damage. Most of the subway cars are in good shape but there is no way to get them out due to fried third rails, track destruction, and structure damage. How do you reduce and change service in order to satisfy demand? (Lets say there were 10 trains stuck at ENY and 15 at Jamaica)
  8. Long term solutions Runs between 242nd and Chambers. All Times: Jay St - W4 via Rutgers, . Trains run local between W4 and 34th. Weekdays: Runs express on Fulton, but service slightly reduced for @ Rutgers Weekends & Late Nights: No express service, runs local on Fulton From 34th St to Canal St, the Northbound express track is used as a Southbound track All Times: Some/all trains run between Canal St and 168th St. Southbound trains skip 23rd St and Spring St. Weekdays: 75% of trains run to Euclid Ave via local, 25% to Canal Weekends: Trains run only between Canal and 168th Rush Hours: Some trains routed via the to provide capacity for trains to use Rutgers 34th - Jamaica. Use in lower Manhattan. High St, WTC, Chambers and Fulton are closed. No shuttle buses provided, as High St is really close to York (A)(F), and as replacement between Fulton and Chambers Runs only in Manhattan, from Canal St to Forest Hills, in Brooklyn replaced by: extended to Brooklyn via Montague & 4th Avenue all times, increased service Suspended Scenario 2: Wakefield - Wall St, Eastern Pkwy - Flatbush 148th St - South Ferry, Eastern Pkwy - New Lots Woodlawn - Borough Hall, use in Brooklyn Eastchester - Bowling Green all times (weekdays), use in Brooklyn Shuttle buses provide service to Clark - Borough Hall - Hoyt - Nevins - Atlantic - Bergen - Grand Army Plaza - Eastern Pkwy Suspended CI - Prospect Park, Canal St (from platform) to 96th St CI - 59th, using switches just beyond the portal for switching, Whitehall St - Astoria, local in Manhattan 95th St - 36th St shuttle, Whitehall St - Forest Hills CI - 36th, 2nd Ave - 205th Suspended via 8th Ave from W4 to Columbus Circle via 8th Ave Suspended, use
  9. Hey all! To try out Illustrator I decided to try do something requested, and I saw that somebody wanted a Service Change poster template. The thread is long dead and but I made it anyway, so here it is (files). The .ai (Illustrator), .svg, and .png are included in the pack. The poster isn't perfect and the font (Helvetica) is isn't exact but I think it comes close. You can download a free software like GIMP to edit the .svg, and if you obviously if you have Illustrator you can use the .ai. For the route bullets I would reccommend you use Threxx's svg files. You can see how the template looks here: Good luck!
  10. It's not as of a couple days ago. I passed by the station 3 days ago and saw the connection passageway virtually open and it seemed like you could walk through the turnstiles but there was evidently construction work going on.
  11. 1 train between South Ferry & Chambers, 96th - 241st Flatbush - Chambers, 34th - Wakefield New Lots - Chambers, 34th - 148th (local between 34th and 96th) via express between W4th and 34th via between W4th and 53rd St 3rd Ave - Canarsie w/ free transfer between Union Square and 3rd Ave PATH doesn't run along 6th Ave
  12. During 63rd Closure: Routed via (G), service suspended. Select service to York St. during rush hours. Shuttle buses serve 21st-Queensbridge, East Broadway - 2nd Ave, York St - Hoyt-Schermerhorn replaces in Manhattan, runs all times, service increased terminates at 59th - Lex or 57th St When 63rd Reopens: Two sections: Coney Island - York St, 2nd Ave - Jamaica Returns Returns to normal service Two sections: Coney Island - 59th Lex (w/ some trains to 96th if need be), Queensboro - Astoria Shuttle via 53rd St Suspended Canarsie - Bedford, as planned
