  1. These posts get more ridiculous by the day...

  2. Okay...but what's your point? Let's just leave it that the fact that different parts of the subway system have either two or three tracks to operate with (the ones without express service). Given those numbers, different tactics would be used to lower commute times. I'm just pointing out the line could be the one to consider those options during rush hours.
  3. It has three tracks. That's why the idea isn't as complicated as it seems. Besides, even if the Jerome Avenue Line ONLY had two tracks, I wouldn't advocate for a skip-stop service to be placed. More local stations + three express stations + 8 minute frequency = express service. Simple. You should look up the pilot program that the went through about eight years ago.
  4. You're joking, right? I gave an example in my first response.
  5. Okay....let me rephrase that for a second. I PREDICT that more express services will be made possible for people living in populated areas in the city but reoccurring track issues will put that on hold.
  6. And it's basically opening a can of words. There are several others threads related to this stating why this is too costly and not as important as other ongoing projects.
  7. Hey guys! I took a really...really long hiatus from the forums, but now I'm back. I created this topic for a short-term Change The World project (it's a long story. Message me if you're still curious) and I need your opinions on something. Have you ever been in a situation where you have somewhere to be and you're running out of time, your train is delayed or even don't know which train to take? Well, my project is about creating ways to navigate throught the city without having to consider much options in your commute. I want you guys to talk about when you've been in one of these situations, but it has to be really specific. What problems did you face getting to your destination, where were you going, why was it important? That specific. Thanks and I'm looking forward to reading your responses.
  8. They're just there because of the way the website was designed...
  9. Didn't know this was still active but....hey. Here goes nothing. With the speed the MTA is running at, repairing signals and tracks will still be a viable issue. You can't just expect a plan to be thrown at contractors and board members and everything will be fine. The subway system will still be more or less breaking down at a steady rate, but hopefully it won't cause major issues. Second, the express!!! Don't get me wrong....I love taking the Burnside Ave-bound trains from school everyday but knowing that I go to school in East Harlem, it would be nice to have a service for not just me, but people who live on or close to the express station stops. That's just my take on it.
  10. Though very impressive, I don't think some people would dedicate a bunch of time to draw schematics on train and or bus models. Honestly, that is some good detail on the diagram, but it's not really going to be that big of a change.
  11. Finally!!! A plan that actually looks like thought was put into it. Companies would finance repairs on their suggested stations (if they need it at all); the only drawback from this would be working with the MTA on a daily basis. See, private businesses are known for having almost good to perfect reputations. Scheduled talks about how much repairs would eventually cause could lead to companies backing out of this confusing scenario. Note that Cuomo already has his own "30 station" enhancement program in place. Timing is a must when these deals are taking places, but every other aspect, this sounds like a good plan overall.
  12. Cuomo knows it's not just Willets Point that needs access to a nearby airport, right? In my personal opinion, Astoria and the South Bronx are badly in need of a new transit option: going to 125th Street and taking the M60SBS isn't going to cut it anymore. Extending the / to LaGuardia helps shave off about 15 minutes off someone's commute into the city. What's the point of having an AirTrain that serves two parts of Queens that don't see high levels of need and travel? This is a perfect opportunity to make a new rail line (whether that be the AirTrain LGA or a light rail) that connects more parts of the city. Not to mention the amount of construction needed to build such a large transit line. The subways are constantly breaking down//causing delays//etc.; but, however, let's not forget that if the subway system was up to date, Cuomo never would have considered making a new AirTrain a possibility.
  13. But still, the Bx1LTD and Bx2 are adding to a person's daily commute. That's just my take on it Sent from my LGMS210 using Tapatalk
  14. The Concourse line is going to be hectic when two or its stations close. 174-175th Streets and 167th Street are stations that have a ton of commuter traffic, whether that be on the weekends, rush hour, or midday. That's more time removed from people's schedules because there's a long distance from every station on the line. For 174-175th Streets: Going to Tremont Avenue with access to express trains or going to 170th Street. For 167th Street: Going to 170th Street or 161st Street-Yankee Stadium to either take the to missed stops or transfer. Shuttle buses won't help on bit, partly because on how much people live near the impacted stations. 174-175th Streets isn't near any actual crosstown buses (other than the Bx32) and as a result, these shuttle buses will have to be placed at Mount Eden Ave//Grand Concourse. That's just my take on it, but thankfully this is not happening anytime soon. Any opinions? Sent from my LGMS210 using Tapatalk
  15. Somebody needs to record a (4) going to 3 Ave-138 Street..rn!!!

  16. Rogue member here for one thing and one thing only...

  17. Wow, it's been less than a year, and my sign still hasn't been made...smh.

      Q113 LTD

      I never went to Metropolitan Hospital before but I go to the one at 96 St- 2nd Av called AdvantageCare(acpny). Hate that place. They take forever to call my name.
