  1. Then I guess it's an ASN block (which is reasonable, as it it wards off DDoS attacks, which often use ASNs like Leaseweb. I just don't feel OK giving local DNS overlord MCI my information.
  2. At this point, one of three things is gonna happen: 1) Deep service cuts are going to happen, prompting mass outrage. 2) Pensions will be cut, prompting mass outrage. 3) Fares will go up steeply, prompting mass outrage. If the MTA remains insolvent for one more fiscal year, one or all of those things will come to pass. Something's Gotta Give.
  3. The link you provided is behind a login utility and cannot be accessed. Either that or the server has blacklisted my ASN (Leaseweb).
  4. According to the Census Bureau, 67. Manhattan - New York County (my birth cert does not refer to Manhattan at all) Brooklyn - Kings County, largest in state at 2.5M Queens - Queens County Bronx - Bronx County Staten Island - Richmond County
  5. Cuomo has the confidence of less than 25% of the state's 67 counties. He will not recover unless the fruits of the Green Light Bill come to pass.
  6. I saw this coming. The MTA is beyond redemption. Good luck convincing us Upstaters that you really want that $50bn. because a whole lotta promises are about to be broken. The city is in an engineered breakdown and Byford is inconvenient. You may use the term "conspiracy theorist" with abandon against me, but it does not change your reality.
  7. Good afternoon, #CapitalRegion!

    #ToldYouSo. I knew there was no way for him to fix an agency this badly broken. Let the chaos begin.

  8. They're not really dim, they're just warmer (<3700K). Any bulb higher than 4000K will keep you in a restless state.
  9. That seems to be a recurring thing with the MTA (2nd Ave Subway anyone)?
  10. Perhaps I should chat here instead. Is it possible to merge the 2 CDTA threads?
  11. Yeah, my bad about the 3. For about much of the time I was a Westchester County resident, the Warburton Bridge was being rehabbed, and the 1 and 6 actually shared the same trunk within Yonkers. I confused the 1 and 6 itinerary all the time due to that.
  12. The buses are seen as distinct by the fare reader. I have never been double charged for transferring from a 1T to a 1W (Scenario: I missed the 13, so I took the 1T to Route 9 and 119 and dashed across the street for the 1W going East ) The branches of the 1 have distinct colors and destinations, but many transit apps and sites do not take note of this. Which bus you take depends on where you want to go. You should decide before you board. Route 1 only goes to the Yonkers City Line (or in some cases, Mercy College) In the evenings, the 1 only goes to the City Line. You could also take the 6 to that same stop. Route 1W goes to White Plains and turns right at NY-119 when Route 1T continues straight. If you need the Harlem Line, connections to other state systems, or County Offices, you should take the 1W. If you need the Hudson Line, or connections to Ossining, Peekskill or Briarcliff Manor, you should take the 1T. The 1W will also connect to the 13 and 14. Route 1C - it depends. If the wording is Via WMC, then it stops at the college last. If it says via WCC, it stops at WMC last. Route 1X is a skip-stop route and utilizes highways and US-9 (it makes one stop along Ashburton Avenue). The 3 goes to Manhattan Road along NY-119, NOT the bus terminal. If you need the terminal, you should take the 1W. There's a shopping mall just beyond the curb.
  13. The connected nature of public transit makes it a great place to see new people, places and approaches. Obviously, not everyone does transit as badly as the nation's largest. Historically, I've been socially inward and public transit gives me an opportunity to stride outside my comfort zone. It keeps me sharp and punctual. It's a great stand-in for vehicle ownership, which is as expensive and convoluted as registering to vote.
  14. Taken with my HTC m8 running Android 8.1.0 A vine wall changes color as the weather begins to cool. Circa October 2019.
