  1. I can see where you come from but imo it's more likely to move NGs or older XD40s. In fact, I could see NGs going to Manhattan to replace some OGs when it's there time. Same with the XD40s to ENY. Plus both models at FP. But it's going to be a while before we even know what happens between now and then.
  2. Which goes back to what I said earlier: Also you say it's unfair that there are no local 2018 XD40s at FB but at the same time get upset when the 2014-15 buses move around to accommodate the newer models. I don't argue with children so you have yourself a good night.
  3. Honestly at this point these fans that keep requesting new units (especially at MHV and FB) are acting just like the residents of East New York and Brownsville, acting like nothing new is coming anytime soon but in reality plans are on the table and/or things are running slow. Just out of curiosity, weren't some of you people sad about the RTS being retired too?🤔🤔🤔
  4. The M9 loop is worthless imo, but if there's a way to bring back the M15 to City Hall I'm all for it. Knowing the MTA, if they want to bring back the M15 to City Hall, I could see them trying to do a "cut" where the M15 absorbs the entire M15 local to South Ferry, which they kinda already do right now (most M15 locals end at Pike during the daytime I believe).
  5. Actually I think I know who the sensitive members are and it sure ain't me or @B35 via Church

Try to be on the lookout if you can.
  7. It'll come in due time. Right now the RTS are forced to retire due to Brooklyn complaining about the RTS polluting the air there. Until the RTS retire, be patient.
  8. Thats what I thought was originally happening anyways. Maybe with this "revised plan" they are talking about less destruction and/or easing down with overbuilding the station. And perhaps making the island platform a bit narrower but enough space to fit a few hundred people on the platform.
  9. Jamaica Center is too big a bus terminal to lose that much service. At the very least only some may move. I also doubt the Q5/85 and Q113/114 would be touched like that either.
  10. Well, it's been good having you around. Thanks for your hard work working around the forums here.
  11. Wait I thought the already completed section of the 2 av subway was already Incorporated into phase 2....
  12. The B91/92 route is up on Google maps. Below is a map I compromised for the proposed routes of the B91/92: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1kkqLqgpWr4j4ZiSaHgXhX5Z8-qhw6KnY&usp=sharing
  13. I rode every local route in the city. So I know what I'm talking about. And a lot of members here rode most if not all routes in the city too. Don't make assumptions just because people don't like your ideas. I ride the M35 constantly in the summer. It does not need an extension. I also ride the M100 constantly. Ridership is picking up and even though it is the lightest of the 125th st routes it still has enough ridership to warrant artics from time to time. Unless you ride these routes at least monthly you have no say in how these routes run. Provide actual evidence that it's a good idea to combine the M100/M35 instead of just saying because one side is light you can combine routes because that's not how extensions work. Not even gonna reply on this topic after this because this is beating a dead horse at this point.
  14. From the MTA Board meeting, transit/bus committee (page 53):
  15. YouTube comments and YouTube videos are just as reliable as Wikipedia; anyone can say anything to throw people off.
