  1. Does anyone think the nonstop section of the route should be at the driver's discretion? Whichever way they feel will be faster should be the way to go?
  2. What are the petitions against the supposed re-routes?
  3. The nostalgia is kicking in, remembering the Bx26's turn left on Jerome from BPB heading south, and running nothing but RTS's.
  4. I seriously don't know where the SIM routes go anymore? None of it makes sense.
  5. Anyone think they should extend the Bx26 back to Fordham Center like it did in the 90s?
  6. That's something MTA bus should really allow. The rule of the nonstop section of all routes should be go where the traffic doesnt. The new buses may look nicer but those old MCI classics were speeding bullets.
  7. All buses need to be ungoverned, service would improve, and drivers need to step on it whenever they can. There's no need for buses to be crawling down Riverdale Avenue with no traffic around them
  8. the MTA world looked so different in 1995. I think most of these changes were for the worse.
  9. I've been using the BxM1 a lot for work lately, its more like you crawl off the HRD at a slow speed, and crawl down 5th Ave taking 15-20 mins from 143rd to 125th, and then turn off 5th at 124th, sometimes taking another 10 min to 116th, and so on. Sometimes, they use Park Ave-132nd-5th Ave which is a little faster. But I wonder if Park-131st-Lexington would be any good?
  10. Maybe it can use 5th SOUTH OF 110th then. 5th Ave is a nightmare in Harlem.
  11. The BxM1 should not be touching 5th Ave at all. It adds at least 15 min every time they get off the 5th Ave exit and have to crawl through Harlem before getting to Lexington/96th St.
  12. I've been advocating that the BxM2 remain the West Side express for awhile, and use the HH Pkwy from Dyckman St. (I've been on some Manhattan bound runs that do that when I'm the only one on board, going to 34th st. Its a 30 min ride tops). Also the M98 should be a full time route that runs down to 34th St again, or even 23rd. I'd also advocate for a new route, M99, to run between Inwood and Lex/3rd Avs via the HRD, thus eliminating all BxM1 inwood service
  13. sounds reasonable. The always operated on its own in a way and not tied together with the in terms of fleet and TPH
