    R32 Fleet Swap Discussion Thread

    A lot of R42’s have had SMS already. You can look towards the top of the roof. If it’s nice and shiny, it prob got SMS’d, also if the sides look clean and shiny, that’s also a dead giveaway.

    ...along with exterior cameras, wi-fi, onboard screens and announcements. Automatic passenger counters r prob on there too.
  5. So the N20G flies in Queens, they’re a drop-off only service. Is it really worth it to TransDev to operate such a service? They have all stops from Great Neck LIRR to Nassau border to accumulate passengers and then drive them all the way to Flushing.

    Bx9 SBS (Unofficial Plan, Study, Feedback)

    The turn from 238th St onto Broadway is a little tight so you might wanna push that bus stop back a little and put the stop light before the intersection so cars don't pull all the way up. Also, the Bx9 suffers from delays towards West Farms where operators might have to do their business and try to leave on time for their next trip. There's been instances of 20min and no bus. It doesn't occur as much on the Riverdale side because ridership drops a lot so ops can haul ass if they need to. Would it be possible to combine the Grand Concourse and Jerome Ave into one stop? Can the SBS be rerouted through the tunnel instead? I know the Grand Concourse stop is very busy and it might be too great an inconvenience for both and riders.

    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    Lately, I feel like the subway has gotten a lot better. I know that everyone might not agree but to a certain extent, most operators I feel are hauling ass once again especially on express runs. Idk if I get lucky with operators or they're actually removing useless timers such as the one at 74th st on the (7). Dispatch is a whole nother story because when you see multiple trains approaching the terminal, how do you not have the common sense to start sending some trains out?? The subway has improved a tiny bit IMO, though there are still lots of problems that need to be addressed like flooding.

    Unplanned Subway Service Changes

    Lol I wonder if it has got to do with braking so hard approaching that timer. Is there a real use for that timer or nah?

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    I think bus drivers lately have been blowing past stops and missing stop requests left and right. There are clearly people waiting at the bus stop and they basically drive past them with blatant disregard. It wasn’t dependent on the age either because I’ve seen old farts and young recruits do it. It’s getting ridicoulous when someone is sitting at a bench, bus stop unimpeded and you’re the only one to stop there. But maybe they just get tired of pulling into bus stops when old seniors just sit there and watch grass grow.
