  1. NICE Is no responsible because the agency was an ex MTA Subsidiary so it has its MTA like remnants unlike Beeline whom always was an independent bus company however south of white plains is where the irresponsibility occurs by fact it has more frequent bus lines not like up north which sees less frequent buses like the 15 for example last bus leaves Peeskill 512pm Cortland Town Ctr at 525pm and Yorktown 545pm (the penultimate s58 departure from Riverhead for perspective comparison) Pleasantville 615pm...Hawthorne 623p and get this it arrives WMC at 630pm WCC 640pm Tarrytown road 645pm and Transcenter 655pm (a 1h45 trip) What im trying to say is that NICE is irresponsible there maybe with the Great Neck N57 and n58 since there feeder routes and not fixed routes theres a huge difference
  2. Bee-Line Bus Service Changes Effective 9/5/2017

    I don't know you guys but i think the BL 12 should at least be extended to Mount Kisco...i mean Mt Kisco is double the population of Armonk and has another Bee Line route (19) ...in the past ive ridden the BL 12 from White Plains to Jefferson Valley Mall and by far is north of Mount Kisco where the ridership rinders to less than 5 passengers...south of Kisco the ridership triples up ...if a possible extension is acquired then it is a 80 min headway eAch direction Weekend buses only go to the airport
  3. Bee-Line Bus Service Changes Effective 9/5/2017

    No kidding i'm wishing for them to make the last #13 to Tarrytown leave at 1050pm and not 1040pm is outrage because the upcoming CT Transit 11 comes from Stamford at 1045pm and misses at ease the transfer connections with BL 13 leaving at 1040pm...i have a friend who works in Stamford and lives in White Plains he says his shift ends at 930pm and has to take metro north to Port Chester and pay up $3.50 plus $2.75 more via BL 13 of 1040pm. ..with the eased connections not will he only saves up to nearly 4 bucks but some who wish to continuation from Connecticut to White Plains and points west 1000pm CT-S 11 leaves McKinney transportation ctr at Stamford MNR 1043-1048pm CT-S due arriving to Port Chester MNR at intersection of Main St and Westchester avenue 1050pm LAST BL 13 departs MNR station and i say 1050pm not 1048pm BL operators arriving White Plains at 1120pm and Elmsford sq at 1145pm Tarrytown at 1205am
  4. Select Bus Service Discussion

    in retrospect there must be a bus variant of a subway line corridor is a law in transit...the M15 cant be scrapped since there are some who wish to take buses rather than subways as well as the BX1-2 and B44
  5. to me i think CDTA should have a route run dow to Ravena and thus have easy accest to Greene County Transit in a nearby New Baltimore just a few blocks away well as well as extending the 7 line towards mentioned locale and rush hours trips to New Baltimore there to complete the gap between Albany and New York via local

  7. The Official MTA Maryland Thread

    for a future MTA-MD 83 bus to run from White Marsh mall to Harford Mall via Belair Road bihourly it is the best option to connect Baltimore to Bel Air and a possible connection to Havre de Grace via Aberdeen will be a reality all is to wish that the bridge that connects Havre de Grace to Perryville has a pedestrian walkway installed by this a trip from Bmore to Perryville will be $4.40 or $2.70 if coming out from White Marsh mall and itineraries of the proposed MTA-MD 83 hope Maryland Transit Administration can implement this route a reality

  9. the thing is is that in those times 80-90 SCT wasnt that rich and its revenue wasnt too much adecuate to handle easier lettering to enable passengers where that bus would go...many bus stops of the s92 are like those old ones since is the ONLY bus that passes through ther and also no idiot would know to be on the bus stop going to riverhead and not go due east to East Hampton
  10. NEver thought of that fixture of the s1 then the n72 since from the petrol station it gets heavy due west...then again the 6:45pm s58 towards East North port is a very dangerous connecting fixture since the last s58 arrives Commack Plaza at 8:25pm the very same time the s54 arrives there as well. ..to self note NYS 25 is one carriageway that is it is not dual so to make it to Commack ontime is a 40% chance UNLESS you tell the s58 driverto radio the s54 to coordinate. ..i two years ago almost got stranded because the s58 passed Middle Island Artist Laje at 630pm when distance from that point to Riverhead is 30 minutes...when it arrived Tanger it was 6:47pm so inconclusion the s58 was late for to leave from Riverhead. ..i told the driver to radio the last s66 and it arrived at 6:57pm do tje s66 leftRiverhead 7 minutes late (mostly my fault) but it arrivePatchogue at 8:15pm right on schedule so no need to have been mad at me the driver Well back to the threa. .. LIRR from Port Jefferson to Hicksville id a last resort option why not waste two more dollars and be ontime. ..but my fantrips aren't the issue since i go to Flanders to visit family members and going to the city is 21.00 USD plus 2.25 on the s92 leaving Flanders.. ..on these times one must save up..but also the issue of the elimination of the n79 has to do for some who go to work at WW. Mall or even as far as Hauppauge so in sense the interconnection. Must not be obsolete. ..also note to self in the peak hours the n79 gets kinda packed as well as the n72 from Babylon very full so NICE must note to self that procedure. ..also the n19 can't be deregistered simply becauseit is a key troute on the merrick road. ..im down with the elimination portion of the route east of sunrise but not the entire route...but many would contradict me by saying we have LIRR for that replacement. ..it is not based on LIRR but by saving a major historic route. ,,or maybejust mmaybe NICE is scrapping routes like in the 20's many trolley lines were replaced by diesel buses. ..nowadays people have cars or at least based a connection to. LIRR...but here's thr problem im down with these routes being scrapped as long as my Caribbean buddies enhance jitney service on these areasat a flat rate of $3.00 then i would accept. ..but for now im against
  11. to note here if the n79 is eliminated and the n72 is truncated to Farmingdale then there will ONLY be ONE access to Suffok County and that is by taking either the n54/55, n71 or the n19 if coming from Freeport (beforehand the n4 from Jamaica) and thake from there the s33 towards Happauge and then the s62 to Riverhead...so at final you must take the 4:00 s62 if you are to come to Nassau county to arrive Hauppauge at 5:50pm and take the s33 to Sunrise Mall...the S54,S58 or the s66 would have no sense for connection to NICE buses...there is option 2 you can take the s66 to Patchogue and then the s40 ad there the s20 but like the s62 you must leave no later then 4:00pm Other options include taking the LIRR to Huntington from Hicksvill pay 3.00 And from there take HART 10 to Commack Plaza and then the s58 to Riverhead and pints east...NICE must be obsolete it has bring harsh cuts to what was beforehand MTA LIB and the name before...with MTA NICE wouldve not truncated the n19 and also with MTA the n72 last run wouldve leave Babylon at 9:30pm and not 9:15pm a time not coordinated to the semilast S40
  12. The n79 CAN´T be eliminated it is a major connectiong route to SCT and a major link to WW Mall that mall is the second biggest of Suffolk county after Smith Haven Mall...it is simple absurd
  13. The Official MTA Maryland Thread

    For the most part is identical as New York some bus routes are 24/7 like the 8, 15, 35 as well as the 14 and 17 advancing to U of MD in the center afterhours. ..some stores are 24 hours to me is more identical to Philadelphia than NYC and not as dead as Washington which at 3am is sparsely inhabited MTA-MD is a good job and the bus lines are coordinated. As well as the Subway and Light Rail
