    Sim23/24 coming to MTA?

    SIM23 & 24 are still gonna be run by Academy. Head to the bottom of the page to see the schedule there. http://www.academybus.com/Commuters/Timetables.aspx I wonder why the has the rest of the express buses but not those two routes.
  2. Let me guess: the is close to bankruptcy right? If this is the case, get ready for the government intervening to bail the TA out and a crap ton of strikes and lawsuits. I imagine NYC itself under a state of emergency if the subway shuts down over financial issues. The has more of a purpose for it's existence this time round with the going to 2nd Ave 24/7, so that line is not going anywhere.

    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    Most of us know of the abandoned Chambers Street platforms of the and as well as the plan to connect the Nassau Street subway to the el lines of the Brooklyn Bridge that was never completed. Turns out the BRT was serious about building the connection. Saw this while looking through the book The Routes Not Taken a few months ago.

    Department of Subways - Proposals/Ideas

    Long time since I've posted here, I'll give it another go. train extension to Co-Op City. Line runs under Burke Avenue with stops at White Plains Road (transfer to & ), Laconia (transfer to train Gun Hill Road station), Co-Op City (the last stop). It would be 2 tracked, deep-level tunneling with all stops having an island platform. There will be cross tracks at the last stop.

    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    I was on one just yesterday on my way home from summer school. Fortunately the train was able to move without further interruption.
  7. That's already being with the Staten Island express buses. Re-designing routes is a great idea, it just needs time, planning, and will for it to be a success. A parody of it.

    I know this thread hasn't been updated in years but I though to add in something new.
  9. Uber and Lyft taking another hit. With so much protest from taxi drivers around the world over the way the two companies do business it's no surprise this passed.
  10. I think the RTS, Orion VII OG & NG Hybrid, NovaBus LFS, New Flyer C40LF and the Xcelsiors are the most popular buses throughout the NYCT/MaBSTOA fleet.

    2019 and 2021 Fare Hikes Slammed

    I wonder how the response is gonna be when the fare is $3.00. I'm imagining political and public uproar, with the transit unions unhappy as well.* *Not surprised if some were to protest over this... 😕

    Rode a train that had a hot car on my way home today. It was so hot the door leading to the next car was left open so that the air could come in. Feels like the air conditioning crisis is slowly spreading to the R62s.

    Came across this tweet while browsing through Reddit on the NYC rail page. This is the first time I've read of this plan. I never knew the PA had bigger plans for the area than just the Trade Center.
