  1. North Manning Station, looking West Use the five digit bus stop code in Transit App or CDTA.org to find out what buses will be at this stop.
  2. Quail-WAMC Station, Looking West BusPlus stations on Route 5 are clearly marked by Red, Silver and Blue pylons with similarly colored bus shelters. The only stop without a shelter is Downtown-Train Station, which uses the Lake Shore Railway underpass. BusPlus Red has nineteen stops across 17.4 miles. There are dedicated traffic signals at Veeder Avenue (East), New Karner (West), and Colonie (West). BusPlus does not make local stops, but will offer connections to local buses at every stop it does make. This stop: 1 - Local Trunk - Wolf Road, Colonie via Route 5 712 - Commuter - W. Averill Harriman State Offices or Patroon Creek - no weekend service 905 - BRT - Schenectady - Gateway Plaza
  3. If you have an unlimited card with a PPR balance of $2.75 or higher, the card will still be accepted. Unlimited Balances are read first on all other services. Dual balances have been available to MetroCard customers since 2013.
  4. Welcome to New York City Transit Forums!
  5. and the platforms on the BMT Jamaica line rattle like an old person's bones. I have this nagging feeling that the floor is gonna fall one [c]rush hour in the not too distant future. Maybe if the station agents didn't buzz in the trash they wouldn't smell so horrible. Right now, LA is dealing with diseases the world hasn't seen since the 13th century, and the situation in the subway will give eventual rise to a similar calamity.
  6. I necroposted. Sorry. I haven't rode the since early March 2018. I had no idea they planned to finally fix that afterthought of a station.
  7. those are the mustiest ones, too. I suspect there's a lot of masonry damage underneath the tiles. If the city sustains another Sandy-like incident, there's a good chance that Grand Concourse service will cease to be.
  8. Wait, they extended the platform? Finally.
  9. Am I allowed to recommend pizza places outside the boroughs?
  10. A GIF of my desktop. Theme is Butterfly Spirit by Ingalill Creations, beautifully remastered for Windows 10 users to enjoy. Check the description for more goodies. Get it here.
  11. I should read back before I post, but I believe it's this. A similar post is on my LinkedIn and Minds pages. Only in New York can such a sadist exist. But if anyone has other stories of this happening elsewhere in the country, I'd love to hear about it.
  12. There is a dangerous nut job sabotaging service on multiple lines for the lulz. More below. © Jalopnik | story by Aaron Gordon | 5/22/2019 https://jalopnik.com/new-york-has-a-supervillain-pulling-emergency-brakes-an-1834936243
  13. New York City Transit. Still at the mercy of heartless NIMBYs. 😔 These people can literally afford to jet. Even if I became well off, I can't imagine ever living below I-287 ever again. I can't coexist with that many egos.
  14. Brooklyn gets stiffed too much and they could use the most improvements. When B35 mentioned their political incompetence, he wasn't kidding. Why do 2.5 million people stay in the company [at the mercy, I mean] of such incompetent representatives?
