  1. Even if I am early, the trains and buses here in NYC will somehow try to make me late.

      lol... Welcome to the (MTA)...

       

  2. Nothing makes me more nervous than someone standing over me with coffee in their hands. One jolt and I will smell like starbucks.

  3. I hate it when the conductor tell us that the train is running express AFTER we leave the station and have no choice but to watch my station being skipped.

  4. Does anybody know a good app for subway notifications? I had a horrendous commute today.

      Oh. I used to have My MTA Alerts app on my android phone but for some reason, no notification doesn't pop up. What I did was I just signup for the email alert. https://www.mymtaalerts.com/LoginC.aspx?ReturnUrl=/

      Be careful with that one. If you don't set it up exactly how you want it for the lines you need, you'll get a boatload of emails from them.

      You can upload this app named Transit. It has ALL the lines.

  5. Since the W is coming back. The MTA can just rip off the black sticker that is covering up the W sign on some stations.

      That is if they haven't replaced lots of Broadway Line signs.

  6. Nothing is more annoying than midday construction.

      And signal problems. Especially on Queens Blvd.

  7. I won a whopping $4 in the Powerball. Please don't ask for money and I refuse to do interviews lol..

      ^^If I was to lie, wouldn't I say I won a larger amount of money.. like $5?

  8. For me, an R142A 6 Train is rare now.

      @Joel Up Front Well for me it is because I prefer the R142 over the R62s.

  9. Something strange happened today. The 2 train was not even crowded during rush hours AND it was a fairly quick trip. I was 15 minutes early for class.

      @TheNewYorkElevated: ... or, you know, anywhere that doesn't have such staggering ridership numbers.

  10. Half hour wait for the Bx17 at 1pm? Seems about right...

    1. B35 via Church

      B35 via Church

      Bx17's are STILL that way in the early afternoon hours... smh... I'm talking from the vantage point from at least 10 years ago....

  11. Is anybody else excited for the MTA to release their annual ridership stats? I'm always curious to see how my home subway stop & home bus route do every year.

    1. Mysterious2train

      Mysterious2train

      Agreed, can't wait.

    2. BM5 via Woodhaven

      BM5 via Woodhaven

      Me too, I wanna see how my express bus routes are doing (and I wanna see by how many riders did the QM10 lose this year, if any, and other routes).

    3. B35 via Church

      B35 via Church

      My home bus route is the last reason I'm waiting to take a gander at those stats; I know it's a sardine can on wheels....

       

      The horses (busiest routes in our system) I don't really focus on....

       

      Basically, like I always do, I want to see which routes have underwent unexpected gains/losses... And to ponder why that is....

  12. Even if I'm early, the 2 train will somehow find a way to make me late.. worst train ever.

    1. Via Garibaldi 8

      lol... Metro-North for moi... Got in right on time...

  13. Why buy an alarm clock when the loud ass CNG buses can wake you up at 4am.

      I was woken up this morning by some idiot in a WRX STi revving his engine.

  14. Today a man walked down the latter onto the gap between the downtown local & exp tracks at the Union Square stop just to pee... smh..
