    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    FYI. Service Change Posted: 10/16/2018 10:18AM B68 buses are detoured because of construction on Neptune Av and Stillwell Av. Detour is as follows: Stillwell Terminal-bound: Via Brighton Beach Av, left on W 5 St, right on Surf Av, right on Stillwell Av, right on Mermaid Av and then resume their regular route. Corresponding stops will be made along detour route. It's probably all jammed up in that area.

    That's a negative. Doesn't appear to be on.

    3841 from MV seems to have clever devices screen installed. Pilot for MV?

    Most of the time, console would rather keep the bus in service with a broken farebox than to take the bus OOS and mess up service. Buses would get swapped mid-route usually.

    Mysterious shuttle bus

    Yes. I've done M3 my last pick, which is my favorite line. No concerns particularly with the turn around point. Only thing the buses have to do is a U-turn to layover going S/B. To do this U-turn without having to reverse the bus, most bus operators hop the sidewalk - which if you ever see that sidewalk, it's all cracked and damaged lol.

    Couldn't agree anymore. Poor kid just wants to be like any other kid and go to school with his friends. These so called 'fans' should mind their business, especially when it comes down to personal matters.

    Mysterious shuttle bus

    If an operator mistakenly misunderstood instructions, placed up a SUBWAY SHUTTLE sign, and only stopped at subway connecting bus stops. He would make a lot of round trips going back and forth as there is only 6-7 stops. It may seem like a good amount of buses are doing it, but really it's just that one same bus going back and forth. Again, it's on a memo, black and white - issued by management that this is only supplement service to the M10 between 125th and 59th. IMO operator probably didnt even read and did as he thought.

    Not sure where you're getting the fact that ALL of them are doing it. If all of them were doing it, the Post wouldnt make it such a big deal being it as a 'ghost bus' or real occasion. Just yesterday, ive seen the signage on the shuttles as 125th and 59th respectively.

    Mistake on the operators part. No idea why he thought it's a subway shuttle. In the depot crew room, it states it as an M10 supplement service and to service all stops between 125th and 59th st. Even on the memo, it states to use M10 signage. Also the supplement shuttles right now are using M10 signage. Not suppose to be using SUBWAY SHUTTLE or TO SUBWAY.

    Mysterious shuttle bus

    Alright folks. These buses are suppose to be M10 supplement shuttles. Not to be mistaken with subway shuttles. These extra buses are just regular signed M10s between 59st and 125th. They make all local stops in between. The operator that the Post had interviewed who had a subway shuttle sign is mistaken and obviously so as it seemed like he had no idea what hes talking about when being questioned. That is why the signs posted along CPW is advising to take M10 due to the supplement M10 shuttles and MTA doesnt acknowledge that theres an actual SUBWAY SHUTTLE. It's just extra M10 runs sort of say.

    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

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    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.
  15. 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.
