  1. I read somewhere the signals chief left too, and that Cuomo “orchestrated” this departure last year. Anyone know where that piece was? Wasn’t in politico, NYSOP or the NYT.
  2. So now that Andy ousted Andy, the Post raises an interesting question: Why would anyone take over as long as Cuomo’s the boss? https://nypost.com/2020/01/23/why-would-anyone-take-over-after-andy-byford-fled-the-mta/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
  3. I had a 6 month streak of winning $25 or free tix every time I played the California Lottery Big Spin scratchers. Never got to go on the TV show though. But it’s only $1. OT though: sucks that this moron from Queens ran off a damn good manager just like that other moron from Queens. We all lose today.
  4. Add to it, as @bobtehpanda mentioned, the street layout being crap, and this is why we can’t have nice things.
  5. I get the idea of not doing like Los Angeles and having practically every bus route run two hours from one side of the county to the other, but with Bk & Q being on the same landmass, it is astonishing to me how hard it is to travel across that jagged borough/county line - let alone on a single fare. There really should be some BQ SBS or limited buses - like LA’s old 500-series bus routes (cross-county expresses that avoid DTLA) - considered as part of these “we call them redesigns but they’re really nothing but service cuts and reroutes” redesigns but with fewer stops than SBS routes and regular coaches instead of the express bus coaches.
  6. Almost making me wanna call off the day job just to wander and railfan.
  7. So as I sit at the Arby’s on 23rd St & Madison eating my Beef’n Cheddar and curly fries, I see M23 buses stuck in traffic. I also noticed they’re in the regular traffic lane because BxM buses are parked in the bus lane. Of course this, along with the Placard Abuse account on Twitter, and all the chatter about Bus Lane tickets on the M15 and other bus routes has me wondering why doesn’t “lead” by example and have these buses begin their runs at 26th St and layover on 25th St, or layover on the Madison Av side of Madison Square Park? Or stagger terminal and origin stops? (To be fair, there are several coaches that layover on Park Av, but there are many that take up bus lane space on 23rd St before Park and before Madison to “layover”.)
  8. In ghost with Whoopi Goldberg and Demi Moore?
  9. Yup. And now their loudest sycophant with a column over here is all for wasting money on DeBlasio’s Dinghies: https://www.silive.com/news/2020/01/fast-ferry-falling-victim-to-class-warfare-opinion.html
  10. And I’m okay with it. Use your ad blocker and deny Advance Publications some ad revenue: https://www.silive.com/news/2020/01/should-mta-consider-free-bus-service-for-staten-island.html
  11. They were doing that back in ‘15/‘16 when I rode to W’burg. Don't remember if conductors made the announcements, but it made me happy I didn’t have to ride an R32 from Broad to Marcy.
  12. Get me one with MC Lyte in the Kickin’ style: ”This Train’s to Brooklyn ”This stop’s 86th Street ”Now stand clear of the closing doors”
  13. Wasn’t the original IND plan that the 8th Av Local end at WTC, Express goes to Bk, and the Bk local go between Euclid and Court St (or whatever the Transit Museum Station is called)?
