    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    That's the run number not the route. That's 101 and 102 on the Q19 that you're looking at. Yes, I thought correctly. So if for whatever reason that run is cut for a certain day ex. Holiday or snow days etc. That person would be on the extra list

    I can no longer see the link. But if there is an XL on a run it means that if for any reason that run is cut, ex. Holiday schedule or snow days, that person that's suppose to be working that run would have a fall back on the XL list.
  3. M4 change is happening July 15th. Seems like last stop is 33rd st and itll layover on either 33rd/32nd & 5th av corner or on the corner of 32nd street once making that left.
  4. Yeah, these Uber, Lyft and other livery vehicles are getting out of hand. Is there some sort of restriction of how many can be in service within NYC or some sort of other limitation? How many vehicles do you think is out there, driving aimlessly waiting for customers with no one in their vehicle. The amount of unnecessary traffic and pollution created is unimaginable to me.
  5. Sorry. I might've misunderstood what you stated about bustime and having them to adjust accordingly when the driver is 2-3 minutes hot. You believe that drivers shouldn't drive slower to make schedule, but to properly adjust the schedule to the driver? Itll be difficult imo because every driver drives differently. Also.. if every driver were to gun the bus and run 'hot'. Schedules would be cut to adjusted and drivers would be 'shaved' of pay. It's just not worth it to gun it, especially if you're on time or just 2-3 mins behind.
  6. How would you adjust a bus that's 2 mins ahead of schedule? Drivers drive a little slower so they can kill a light or two to make up those 2 mins.

    Probably a bus that is running behind and the dispatcher told the bus operator to go limited to make up the time. Bus still provides service unlike sending the bus not in service.

    Does this qualify for that thumbs up?
  10. Has anyone heard of anything as of lately? I've seen this poster posted, perhaps this means Manhattanville is good to stay till 2020 at least?

    Plan To Restructure The NYC Bus System

    What about elderly folks who can't really go up or down the steps for the subway. Folks with walkers and wheelchairs. Probably be alright if every station was wheelchair accessible with elevators. But it seems to be a hassle rather than just riding a bus or two
  12. M4 does have limited. But I agree with having some opposition this matter. Ever since that 34th st cut and then now 37th st cut, it really sucks for the ridership. I think having it terminate at the bus stop between 35th/36th and 7th, the first stop making the left onto 7th, wouldve been a better idea. Passengers can still walk to Penn station and still get the uptown bus from 34th st. Bus then would have to make a left onto 34th from terminal on 7th and left at Madison for uptown service.

    All this talk about MHV depot and it's possible closure, I'm curious as to if we hear any news about new buses anytime soon for MHV. Fingers crossed tho.

    I believe the cut for the M104 is finalized for April. Not sure about the M10.
  15. Oh man this sucks. Has anyone passed by Manhattanville depot recently? They had exterior work done to it. All the bricks and panels were replaced. Not sure if it was Columbia having to do it because of lease related reasons but it wouldn't make sense to me for them to fork the money to do the entire exterior work, if they plan to remove the depot.
