  1. I rode it last weekend as a 117 on my way to the Crossgates Mall. I really like the deat design. It's catchy and hypo-allergenic.
  2. Remember that Subway delay mapper I made based on the standard service chart? Well, I updated it. Download it here. No login needed.
  3. 🛒Raisin Bran, with a mix of Nature Valley peanut granola 🛒The new Oat Crunch Cheerios (which is now available in generic) 🛒Frosted Mini-Wheats, the strawberry generic version
  4. About 3-4 MPH. It depends on whether or not I'm in a flat or hilly area. I run at about 6 MPH at best. I'm in better shape than I was in 2013, but not in 2008. When I enter the city, it takes me about ninety seconds to get from coach to subway, and another one hundred seconds to properly load my MetroCard and use it.
  5. and given this Governor only won a third term by the hair on his city-chin-chins**, he should try not to upset the largest constituency in the state (Kings County). ** - Why the Mother Goose reference? I mean this.
  6. Hoping you all had a safe and happy holiday season.


  7. Brooklynites' input be damned. This is what happens when we pander to irrational mobs. My statement on Mastodon: This is also on my Twitter, but that is private. https://mastodon.cloud/@masstransitkrow/101354843094595387
  8. that makes sense. I've heard that the train arrivals line up worse with the buses at 86th St.
  9. There's a reason MTA construction costs are the largest in the world. Weatherproofing shouldn't be that intensive of a task. Putting grates over underground stations without diverting the flow of their contents was a bad design choice from the start. I'm just glad they're including elevators in some of the stations they plan to shut down.
  10. It looks gorgeous. I hope it smells gorgeous too.
  11. Someone mentioned about the timing between trains terminating at South Ferry and missing the ferry by a few minutes because of the offset. Do they plan on adjusting the Ferry or times to compensate? Also, I previously mentioned that the (via 86th St in Brooklyn) can be used to connect to buses headed to Staten Island. While this may add as much as half an hour to commuters from the Bronx and Manhattan, the difference might be less if you're commuting from Brooklyn or Queens. What are this community's thoughts on that now? And if you have a final destination in Staten Island, how do you cope?
  12. What I wished they did was put those students on the EasyPay program and simply have educational institutions subsidize the cost. This way you can have a card that works with Bee-Line and NICE and can be replaced if it's lost or stolen with the balance you previously had. I wish they streamlined it so that people didn't have to wait ten days, and that full fare customers could benefit from the dual use mode that seniors enjoy. However, they will not work with PATH or JFK AirTrain (unlimited version). Upstate, a system like that is already in place, called "Universal Access." My suggestion is more ad-hoc though. At the February 2015 public meeting at the Westchester County Center, I mentioned the above idea.
  13. TransDev is now Transport of Rockland's bus operator. The change occurred earlier last month.
  14. I thought this might be useful to leave here. An entire folder dedicated to all the buses I ever rode and hope to ride. I update it every few months, but if anything is out of date, let me know. Folders listed by Agency. It's public. No login needed, although it would help, because you'd be able to save it to your own OneDrive.
  15. You're allowed to carry two. I asked an attendant at ALB, and she said if it's two backpacks like the one I was carrying, it's okay. (the backpack was a Russell 20 gallon barrel backpack, which I got for $20 at Marshall's. I necroposted, I know, but I answered a question that was asked but not answered.
