  1. True, you got 5 in the Bronx (BxM1, 2, 4, 7 & 11), and three each in Brooklyn (BM2, 3, X28) and Queens (QM6, 17, X68). My question to you is what kind of buses they’re using?
  2. That’s because this weekend hasn’t got here yet. The new overnight service began two days ago
  3. The Bx39 is running the full route during the overnight hours and is handled by WF
  4. Where are they gonna go on the buses? The NYPDTB should be out there to enforce the rules because not too many are gonna be out there especially now that the subways are on a 4 hour break, which is saving money on electric bills. But it also gives them time to complete some of the projects. Are they still doing Fast Track or they stopped that program
  5. There are super gaps in which overnight service is rolling. For an instance, Look at between 50th St & 18th Ave all the way to Bay Parkway on the . There is no bus service on New Ultrect Ave and on the from 59th and 86th St. Even though the B11 is the only crosstown type, that area is empty. now look in Manhattan, besides the BM2, BM3 & the X28, which stop nowhere near downtown Brooklyn, for anyone needing to get there, they would have to cramp on the B39 and take any bus from Williamsburg Plaza to get there, unless they have a car. look in the Bronx: you do have out of 12 routes that cross into Manhattan, 8 (originally 7) routes operate 24/7, but only Bx7 is short to the original route before the mid 90s extension to Columbia Hospital. There IS a walking distance between 207th & Broadway and 193rd & St. Nick for the M3 or Fort Washington for the M4. At least my favorite route is now 24/7 (Bx4, which runs under the 2, 5 & the 6) the is the only subway that is fully serviced by 24/7 bus routes. In my view, they should’ve added the Bx33 to the mix. the Bx1 has to work the load for passengers of the and the Queens was added a little with the Q32, QM6 & the X68. But after 82nd St, you have to walk to Northern Blvd for the Q66, which is the replacement for the the train to lefferts Blvd, the closest bus route to it is the Q24 on Atlantic Ave. the Rockaways, Use Q53SBS & the Q22. all others and the are served by 24/7 bus routes.

  7. Bedbugs bunnies come from non washed clothes which can bring lots of 🧫 onto the buses especially if you are sitting in the backseat where they are generated by the heat of the engines. One person could be sitting in the backseat or the middle and don’t know that they have one until something Or someone tell him or her that they have a bug crawling on their shirt or jacket.
  8. I call this “lack of cleaning” or “half ass.” I know it’s not the TA’s fault but look at the riders and where they come from. Down where I’m at, when I take the bus to work, I see seats that’s filled with leftover plates, weed bags and cigar insiders near the back seat of the bus. Even the newbies are being abused with ratchetness. Something’s gotta give, you know. #StaySafe #NonEssentialWorkersStayHome
  9. SEPTA already had them since the late 2000s with Microsoft Anna (who is my favorite)
  10. 110th St reopened on 4/8/20 but on weekends, they have the running on the line to 137, meanwhile, they have to hold one train at 96th St so that the other can pass on the downtown track, while they reinspect 110th St
  11. Ok. I was up in the city 2 days ago on a family visit. On my way home, I took 8325 on the Bx16 to Woodlawn-Jerome and I noticed something: The TA is using Microsoft Zira to announce bus stops instead of drivers themselves, and it was on static mode, either it was saying the stops or not pronouncing the avenues right. With the new Real-time TVs installed, did the entire fleet get them? Or just the buses from 2011 up
  12. I have a solution for it. Instead of “loan” with buses being used on different depots, can we use “Essential Service Assist” or “ESA” duty for short?
  13. I really don’t understand why you decided to post that, but I removed it because we don’t do that here. -Deucey
  14. Whoever caused a fire on R142 6346-6350, that killed a motorman, must not have the intelligence inside his head. Someone doesn’t like the R142s but this one went too far saying, just because we have a pandemic shutdown of business, does not give this person the rights to destroy a subway car.
