  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. Happy #ScreenshotSaturday, NYC Transit Forums! Today's featured theme is Gladiolus by Ingalill Creations Get it here.
  4. Subway. It's least likely to give me gas and a bad time on the john. I prefer Dominos, but I know Papa John's tastes better.
  5. Oh, I know they're ignorant, but I'm shocked as to WHY they are. Upstate frequently refers to the oversaturation of Kings County in the legislature. That's not by accident. It's the largest of the 67 counties. Absent the Greater New York Merger of the late 19th century, it'd be the third largest city in America. if they're that incompetent as you say, well -
  6. I'm shocked. They're practically dominant in the Assembly and every committee head in the State Senate is from Brooklyn.
  7. This week's screenshot is of Mystery 2.0, a theme based on the cult classic from Windows 98, remastered for Windows 10. Its High Contrast equivalent retains the recognizable palette from days of old. You can get it here.
  8. Good night, #CapitalRegion!

    A reminder to riders - never cross in front of the bus when you exit unless you have the right of way.


  9. Good evening, NYC Transit Forums!

    Today's suggested story is a Sidewalk Talk Q&A between Eric Jaffe and Candace Brakewood that explains the benefits of GTFS and how it results in smoother transfers between buses and trains. When I go to NYC, I typically take a bus down, but I take a train back. If I rely solely on one operator, I become prone to a single point of failure (if a train derails, then there's no way I can make it there and/or back).

  10. Queens Boulevard is definitely a place that could make use of CBTC. How many of you get stuck for 45 minutes on end in the stretch between Parsons and Continental on any given Thursday?
  11. That's good. I've heard that the (J) can run trains at 26 TPH. Is that still accurate? I noticed CBTC infrastructure (namely those yellow signs) on the Culver section of the line in February 2018. Are they considering that corridor for CBTC? If so, what's the timeline for activating it? Reader Note: I haven't rode any train into Brooklyn since May 2018.
  12. Isn't there a certain cap to how many trains you can squeeze per hour? That sounds like a bad idea. But I could be wrong. What is the TPH limit for the crosstown?
  13. Good morning, #CapitalRegion!

    It isn't because of the weather. It's because it's expensive.

  14. A photo taken during the 4th of July celebration in Empire State Plaza. Free transportation was available for revelers that covered all possible trunk routes. Taken by my HTC One m8.
  15. There's this wonderful thread for desktops I stumbled upon. I hope my submission inspires its revival...
