  4. Hello. This is a two part saga of the Buses Of Broward County. I visited Fort Lauderdale, Florida back on August 14th-21st.

  5. Trains operated between Metropolitan Avenue & 34th St-Herald Square, and then, were rerouted via the Line between 42nd St-Bryant Park and 145th St, the last stop this past weekend. This detour was due to no service on the IRT Broadway-7th Avenue Line between Brooklyn and Harlem. Action was filmed at Bryant Park, Rockerfeller Center, and the newly renovated station stops of 72nd, 86th, and Cathedral Parkway-110th Street. There's also interior train action; lastly, to be honest, the MTA should've ran special Train service for those two weekends. As always, please enjoy.

Here is the train serving the newly recommissioned, WTC-Cortlandt station on the Line. Also, The MTA will begin the rollout of the new fare payment system, called OMNY. Starting May 31, you’ll be able to use your contactless credit, debit, or reloadable prepaid card, or your mobile phone or wearable, to board all Staten Island buses and the 4 5 6 lines between Grand Central-42 Street and Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr. OMNY will only be available on a full-fare, pay-per-ride basis until every subway station, bus route, and the Staten Island Railway is outfitted with this new technology.

What makes this line so special is that it uses 11 cars, the 2nd subway line to have Communiations-Based Train Control(CBTC) (1st in the IRT division). The line was ranked the best by the straphangers campaign in 1997-2000; 2009-2010; 2014-2016. The week before, a photo of a newly manufactured R211 subway car appeared on reddit.com.

This commentary is based on the upcoming planned service changes involving the subway line, as well as two new free bus routes; B91 and B92.
  14. Last year in 2018, I attended the New York International Auto Show. There were a lot of hot new fancy cars that were showcased this past year. There were also a 0 to 60 MPH speed test with the Toyota Camrys and a roughness test with the Jeep Cherokees. I cannot wait to see what this year's auto show will bring. This year's NY Auto Show will take place on April 19th-28th, so go out there and see the new cars. Please enjoy.
