  1. I once said about 3-4 years ago that the s92 was a very very long route its route is 3 times more longer than the s78 bus and is 50 in shy of the real longest bus route in the states the NJT 317...the s92 basically splits up in 2 portions the North North fork route from Riverhead to Orient Point via Greenport and the south fork portion to East Hampton via Flanders and the Hamptons via Sag Harbour...I put a statistic in that 75% of the ridership is the SF portion while the NF portion at 25%...but is really depending time and day since majority of its passengers get off at Riverhead or itineraries since Riverhead is basically the ONLY transfer point between the S92 and other SCT routes and by virtue to the west part of the county going to as far as Patchogue (s66) Hauppauge (s62) or East Northport (s58) since the rest of transfer are to feeder routes (10B and 10c the latter more important since it heads to Montauk as the only bus route out there) then again 4 years ago this turned out to be really a. Myth in wh ich many do go beyond Riverhead if boarded in itineraries going either to Greenport or East Hampton...in reality I remember once summer 2015 I got on the 440p s92 to Riverhead which by schedule was suppose. To reach Riverhead by 600pm but reaches nearly 1 hour late 657pm missing the 645p s58 and the 650p s66 but luckily catched the s62 to Port Jefferson and took the LIRR back to the city in that rush hour s92 I witnessed a 1st time ever packed Suffolk Transit bus it looked like I was in an MTA bus like the q58 bus but it was in Suffolk county...when I pressed the stop request button I was the only one disembark with the packed s92 going to Orient Point (last bus up to the point) but I got a glanced of many Latinos boarding the bus going from Hampton bays and especially Flanders which is home to a sizeable Hispanic population and really the poorest portion of the Hamptons since the hamptons really commences here in Flanders (where the big duck is located)...in return I would say YES and NO...yes because Riverhead is the tanking refueling point of passengers but no in which many go beyond Riverhead...I once suggested that the s92 be split in 2 routes but by witnessing 4 times ridership in the s92 I can estimate that about 60% go between the 2 forks and 40% disembark at Riverhead is a must to say that the s92 WON'T be split into2 routes since more than half the ridership go beyond the 2 forks especially the Hispanics at 85% since many work at the rich people homes as landscaping heck the Hampton are clean because of them (well I give them my support since I myself am Hispanic) but to them the s92 is like a regular MTA bus route just that it is in Suffolk reality in the end of the county so its a NONO for the split P.D: really no one go past Greenport but the bus goes all the way to O.P.anyways but it really goes there if a passenger there is willing to go to Orient Point if he/she gets off at East Marion or Orient but I can estimate that probably like 3-5 people board the Greenport-Orient Point segment virtually all the very low ridership is treated like a shuttle since all get off at Greenport...I can guess that the s92 goes to Orient Point for 2 reasons 1) the Ferry pays the bus segment from Greenport to the Ferry dock since the s92 really I repeat really terminates in Greenport heck all 3 times I went to Orient Point the driver asked me if I was going to the ferry dock dock which I replied with YES...but in virtue the s92 dissent go to Orient Point...I can assume that if a 1055am s92 from Riverhead arrives Greenport at 1150am and in schedule due to arrive the ferry dock at 1210pm what the driver would do is terminate in Greenport go buy its lunch at the supermarket or dinery nearby and just adjust its clock alarm to 1225pm to leave Greenport and report there for the 1240pm departure...in turn they do this since this part of the county is sparsely populated possibly the only region with a very low population and with a bus line I mean Oyster bay has more people than this region compared and no bus routes...the true reason drivers do this is because 1) rarely no one goes to the ferry dock (5% at much) 2) the bus much more be adjust. To be on time the departure or arriving ferry boat (1210pm to 1240pm is a big margin) and the real reason is 3) Greenport has it all for concessions for the driver also if the bus is bad shape after the 3 hour+ trip from East Hampton it can change buses at the garage since the s92 bus garage is at Greenport hence giving Greenport as the as the TRUE terminal of the s92
  2. Guys I have a question important...I'm looking to go to Lakewood this weekend and was wondering if I can take the NJT 832 to Asbury Park and TRANSFER to the 317 I mean yeah I know the 317 tariff is very elevated but can I reduce the normal fare to a discounted fare like the ones from CT Transit or is a new fare in just sceptical thanks
  3. I was wondering a huge loss in a bus transit...and is the Middlesex County Area Transit M6 bus which ran from Jamesburg to Princeton Junction NJT Rail station...at first I said the truncation of the bus from the RR station to Plainsboro was not that bad as for 3 reasons...1) the MCAT M6 extended way passed its county jurisdictions...2) the route was coexistence with the NJT 600...3) poor service passed Plainsboro So to me is why did MCAT discontinued the route in the first place...I mean ok make it bihourly but NO!!! They decides to deregistered the bus route Which brought me to make this proposal...and is to separate the M1 to two final destinations...the 1st one the normal route and the 2nd one go to Plainsboro and make a loop around Dey Road Stone Creek road (quail ridge apts) and Plainsboro road and back to route 130 back to New Brunswick...at Stone Creek road the M1 can connect to the NJT 600 at ease and have a fair connection between the MCAT and a NJT Mercer county division I am in huge favour of the implemented MCAT M1 bus route...but can't be assured if it dosent meet the requirements. Which it comes to the public opinion what do you guys think?
  4. You know if the 10c is extended to the lighthouse it would pass by law in ditch plains...so yeah is a good change...going to the lighthouse year round not to mention that the s94 dosent even go to the LIRR station as the 10c does just yo the gazebo
  5. Back in December 2016 I went when mta Maryland didn't modified its routes...back then the longest mta md route was the #14 (today LocalLink 70) which runs from Patapsco LR Station to Annapolis...today it still is...the colours were different as well as the bus stops...just baring the plaque sky blue with a bus and a girl disembarking it with no signs of the terminal that route was heading...but hey Baltimore is a very beautiful city
  6. Wow and to say much it marks 3 years that I went to Montauk pt or as I call it km 195 ...I remember that the s94 was a 2005 gillig as well as the 10C and the s92 as well sharing with the Orion 7 ...I went 3 failed attempts but in the 4th was the charm and boy what a beauty it was a very beautiful NYS landmark reachable by public transportation and close to NYC...if some would've know the distance between Manhattan and Montauk Pt is similar from NYC to Wilmington Delaware and is funny how this section of NY State is much a red sox nation and not a Yankee territory being in Aforementioned state...I think the ford cutaways are the replacements of the 2005 gilligs...them buses will be missed very famous for their alarm sounding beeping because the brakes are loose or I guess there's little water added being assure the very long. Routes it makes like the queen s92 as well as the s62, s58 and even the s54 I wish to return to Montauk point someday but will always cherished the great accomplishment just barely before the discontinuation of the s94 that runs from independence day til labour day
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. WELL FOLKS IN ONE WEEKS TIME MTA MARYLAND WILL LAUNCH ITS FIRST EVER BRT BASED BUSES AND WITH THIS ITS CURRENT ROUTES WILL SUFFER RENUMBERINGS THAT IS THAT THEY WILL HAVE A NEW ROUTE ASSINGED IN EFFECT WHEN THE FAMOUS BALTIMORE LINK WILL BE LAUNCHED...WITH THIS THE MTA MARYLAND WILL PASSED WHAT WE HERE IN NEW YORK CITY PASSED THROUGH WHEN MANY OF OUR ROUTES WE HAVE TODAY WERE RENUMBERED BACK IN THE 80S (30 YEARS AGO) TO DATE THE RENUMBERINGS OF OUR BUSES HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE FUTURE OF THE AUTHORITY SINCE NOW THE AGENCY HAS ONE OF THE MOST BUSES IN ITS FLEET WITH ALMOST 6000 UNITS...BACK TO BALTIMORE, THE RENUMBERINGS HAS MUCH TO DO WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE BALTIMORE LINK SO FOR INSTANCE THE MTA-MD 15 WILL BE RENUMBERED TO HAVE THREE ROUTES COVER ITS CURRENT ROUTE SO IF YOURE GOING FROM SOCIAL SECURITY TO OVERLEA YOU MUST PURCHASE A DAY PASS TO CONTINUE YOUR ROUTE TOWARDS ENDS POINT AND VICE VERSA...SO NO $1.70 ONE WAY SINCE IT WOULD BE OBSOLETE...MUCH OF THE QUICKBUS WOULD SUFFER MINOR ADJUSTMENTS AS FOR THE FAMOUS MTA-MD 14 AND 17 THESE TWO ROUTES WILL NOT SUFFER AND CHANGES IN ITS CURRENT ROUTES EXCEPTION WOULD BE AN OBSOLETE DETOUR ON ROUTE 14 BEFORE COMING TO JUMPERS HOLE ABD THE ROUTE 17 WILL OBSOLETE A SMALL PORTION OF IS ROUTE ACCESS BETWEEN ARUNDEL MILLS AND BWI AIRPORT BOTH CASES BECAUSE OF LOW RIDERSHIP...AS FOR ITS NEW RENUMBERINGS WELL THE NO. 14 WOULD BE BROKEN INTO TWO ROUTES THE #69 AND #70...THE FIRST ROUTE WOULD COVER THE SHORT TURN OF THE CURRENT #14 TERMINATING AT JUMPERS HOLE VIA THE SUPER WALMART AS FOR THE #70 WOULD COVER THE LONG #14 ROUTE ALL THE WAY TO ANNAPOLIS SO WITH THIS THE LONGEST ROUTE OF MTA MARYLAND WILL AS BY ONE WEEKS TINE BE THE #70 BUS HOWEVER DUE TO THE FACT FOR THE ACCOUSTIMG OF THE RESIDENTS FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS THE #70 BUS WILL BE PUTTEN IN PARETHESIS (#14) FOR BETTER CLARIFYING THE ROUTE TO AVOID CONFUSIONS...THE MTA-MD 17 WILL BE RENUMBERED MTA-MD 75 AND NO TERMINATION AT PARKWAY SOUTH AS FOR MORE SERVICE TO ARUNDEL MILLS NOW HERES WHERE IT TICKS ME OFF A LITTLE BIT...WITH ALL THESES CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS THE AGENCY HAS NOT LOOK DEEP IN THE BOX WITH AN INCLUSION OF A BUS ROUTE TOWARDS BEL AIR DEPARTING FROM WHITE MARSH MALL WHERE THERE ARE CONNECTION TO MANY MTA-MD BUSES LIKE FOR INSTANCE THE #35 TO CENTER CITY...LIKE MENTIONES A FEW MONTHS AGO THE MTA-MARYLAND SHOULD HAVE JUST ONE UNIT TO RUN ITS ROUTE FROM WHITE MARSH MALL TO BEL AIR WHICH ACCOUNTING OF HEADWAYS WOULD BE BIHOURLY THAT IS IF YOURE DEPARTING FROM WHITE MARSH MALL AT 10AM THERE WILL NOT BE ANOTHER BUS TIL 12PM AND SO ON AND VICE VERSA WILL BE 9AM 11AM 1PM SO ON...THE NEW FACT IS THE NEW RENUMBERING WILL LIKELY BE IN THE TRIPLE DIGITS BUT THIS ROUTE MUST COME INTO EFFECT ITS A MUST AND WITH MUCH IF THE BRIGDE CROSSING AT SUSQUEHANNA RIVER DELTA COMES TO EFFECT BY HAVING A PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY...WITH THIS ONE WOULD PAY NEARLY HALF THE NOMINAL FARE FROM BALTIMRE TO PERRYVILE AT$4.40 SINCE TAKING TWO MTA BUSES ARE $3.40 AND THE H.T. 1 IS JUST A MERE DOLLAR...WELL THATS IS ALL TO EYES OF THE TRANSIT AGENCY THIS ROUTE IS A MUST IF THERES AN ACCESS TO ANNAPOLIS WHICH IS FARTHER AWAY THAN BEL AIR WHY NOT A BUS ROUTE TO BEL AIR...THIS WILL FILL UP THE GAP OF LOCAL BUS AGENCIES BETWEEN WASHINGTON AND PHILADELPHIA WELL HOPE SOME OF YOU MARYLAND RESIDENTS ENJOY THE NEW BALTIMORE LINK HOPE SOMEDAY TO RIDE THIS NEW LOOK OF MTA MARYLAND AS MUCH THE NEW COLOR SCHEME HEHE...SALUTATIONS
  13. 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

  15. 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
