  1. SUNY Schenectady UAP card holders who were here in Spring 2019 and earlier should be able to use their card, provided they have no outstanding balances.

  3. Just a seventeen minute walk there and back. My endeavor was successful. No NYCT assets were used.
  4. I will use the Bee-Line 7 and 55 only, both ways and complete the journey on foot.
  5. It's probably more of a priority to have the ones near the subways or transfer points. If a road only has one barely-changing bus route, it's unlikely they ever will update them. For example, up here in Menands along Route 32, they still have the old signs for the 22. Given that the 22 continues to serve Menands, replacing the signs is a pointless gesture.
  6. What a shame many signs in Queens and Brooklyn haven't seen those updates (as recently as 2018).
  7. I'm heading into NYC next month and will do so without relying on any NYCT assets. I will report on that when I return.
  8. Update 7/25/2019 Turns out that wasn't supposed to happen. The glitch has since been fixed.
  9. I kind of wished we supported aliasing, like DeviantArt. If we change our name, all links redirect to it, but if people use the old username, it'll redirect to that same user. For example, I use masstransithonchkrow and masstransitkrow interchangeably across networks. I don't have a second account to my knowledge on this site.
  10. Hope this is helpful if you don't like your Lyft driver. An all day pass will set you back $5.25 for all four zones. http://www.redrosetransit.com/
  11. My concern is that the buildings will be so degraded, they won't be safe for habitation and that will be used as the justification for eviction. I believe that felons who do their time should be given the opportunity to demonstrate that they have learned. The system makes it hard for them to reintegrate, and I believe that is by design. Personally, I believe NYCHA residents need to flee New York City, even if it's costly. They'll have more troubles if they stay. Someone is attacking the city's infrastructure, and they know what they're doing. They need to GET OUT.
  12. I am charged $5 regardless. I made them aware of my interest in this technology, so lying through my teeth is inadvisable. I'd gladly put Paper Lincoln forward.
  13. AMEX is updating their cards with contactless readers. I might have to pay $5, but it's worth the expense.
  14. Universal Access passes for academic institutions in the Capital Region have been deactivated

    Please use your Navigator or cash fare to pay going forward. Cards should reactivate by September 1st.

  16. NYCHA is unlikely to survive. I bet that by the time de Wilhelm is out of office, there will be 101K homeless, with 400K (evicted NYCHA tenants) on the way. It's a sad prospect, but y'all need to escape New York. Again.
  17. Your best bet is to contribute to this community. May I recommend contributing to off-topic lounges? There are a lot of topics to go over besides transit.
  18. My location indicator is a rough, 200 mile abstraction of where I live. I live in a community that is a part of the historic Erie Canal Trailway. That includes many communities, which spans fourteen upstate counties, including Oswego, Herkimer, Fulton, Montgomery, Schenectady, Albany, and Rensselaer counties.
  19. "Giving money to NYCHA is like throwing it out of a window." - Andrew M. Cuomo, 56th Governor of New York State
  20. My name is Eric. Of course, you already knew that. Look down.
  21. The error I get is failed name resolution, so this means the website is down, or they changed their URL without adding forwarding details in their DNS record. However, you're here, and thanks for that.
  22. And expensive. Those buses aren't worth the $6.50 price tag. Hopefully, the network redesign will sort itself out in the Bronx and move to Queens, where it's probably needed more than any other borough.
  23. I think expanding on existing technology (like full body turnstiles) might be more cost effective.
