    R179 Discussion Thread

    Why was the not full length to begin with?
  2. So I wanted to make a new thread pertaining to fleet in Bee Line and to not clog up old threads so here we go. This is info gathered from wikipedia, facebook and the bee line group: AS OF FEBURARY 1, 2019: XDE60: 302-352 in service. 25 Neoplans left in service. SERVICE CHANGES SPRING: NOTE: The 75 and 91 timetable have disseapered off the site, so it's likely there will be some major modifications to the 91 route, and I may think they are going to extend it to Yonkers RR Station.  FLEET DISCUSSION: Bee Line is starting to install bike racks on the whole fleet, I have witnessed them on some of the NABI40LFW units. They estimate them to be installed on the whole fleet by summer 2019. RETIREMENT PROCESS:  As of February 16, 2019, the following XDE60's are in service: 302-332, 334-352, 356. 301 to be delivered last, 333 is MIA. As of February 16, 2019, the following AN460's are retired (anything that does not have notes was sent to a scrapper):  501 - First Neoplan, 2001 model. PARTS. 508 509 511 512 - DASHBus. 519 523 - PARTS. 538  539  540 541 542 543  544 545 547 549 550 551  552 553 554 555 - Private Owned. 556 - DASHBus. 557 - DASHBus. 558 559  561   563 565 - Retired but sold to an unknown person. 566 567 569 570  572 - PARTS. Had experimental orange LED's. Involved in accident in November that took it out of service indefinitely. 573 - DASHBus. 574 576

    Does he mean Canal St on Nassau or Broadway?

    Does the <R> have to continue all the way to Essex though? I think Canal or Bowery would be a sufficient terminal since it intersects with the (A)(C)(2)(3) . Canal allows <R> riders to switch to the and without modifying Essex.

    I still dont know why we cant send the via Mountague, and the via Nassau/Bridge. This is the reason why 4th Avenue local is so bad, there needs to be frequent service, so why not utilize what we have? Having the via Nassau/Bridge boosts the TPH on 4th Avenue. The only real issue here would be crossing in front of the and .

    You said " and would continue to Astoria."

    This plan spells delay across the board. Not only do you create a bigger merge on Broadway at Canal St, you overuse that switch point to the point where it will fail. The only other way I see what to do is this: Forest Hills to 9th Avenue or Bay Parkway, rush hours some trips end at Canal St or Whitehall St. JC to 95th St This preserves some service on 4th Avenue while giving 4th Av riders a one seat ride to midtown. Nassau has such Potential and yet is never used to its fullest extent.

    What do you mean what difference does it make? The was chosen solely because of its ridership patterns.
  10. Lawrence St

    Bay Ridge area politicians call for split R train

    Yeah no, the reason why the was chosen to go to 96th St instead of the was because riders along the wanted 96th St service.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Regarding fare beating-its a big problem, especially along routes that connect with schools. I was once on the M101 LTD, and not one, not two, not three, but SIXTEEN kids snuck in through the back door and I could hear the driver spamming F5...like this is why the fare is so high. Why should us paying customers have to suffer because of people who dont pay?
  13. So if the Bridge never underwent work, Broadway and Brighton would be different today?

    Running the to 96th St makes further merging a problem on Broadway.

    Bee Line Service Changes effective 4/8/19

    The last trip in the whole system is the 20, since that last trip from WP dosent finish until 2 AM. The 2-which randomly switches between Exeuctive Park and Tudor Woods-is the earliest.

    I love Bee Line, and I try to give them some space here and there, but ever since some of these new drivers have started, it's been complete chaos. Buses coming 3 minutes early, drivers seeing you try to run to the bus stop and just skip your stop anyway, rude drivers, just... Even today, I was trying to catch the first 4 bus of the day, and the dude came 3 and a half minutes early, even saw me trying to flag him down while running to the bus stop and just ignored me and passed me. Unacceptable! It's unfair how some of these drivers dont care how early they are, while some of these drivers will wait 5 minutes to catch up for being 1 minute early.

    There are multiple routes that can run artics-they just choose not to. For example, some of the 13 trips should have artics, but they dont put them on there. A neo used to run on one 25 trip short turn, but that was taken out a while ago.

    Since the R46 and 68's are 75 feet, how come they manage to not hit each other on the 36th St curve into 9th Av on the (D)?

    What they would do is have the branch off from the at Rector St, and then go to St. George.

    How come the crosstown town was never abanonded since it was never used when Manhattan was the destination hub?
  23. So how does the B110 operate?

    Select Bus Service Planning

    The M14SBS was never suppose to be temporary-at least not the main part of the route.

    Select Bus Service Planning

    Hold up, unless the plan changed, the M14D was going to be converted to SBS, as it was in the original plan (before the shutdown even came into play) while the M14A would have remained the local. Maybe @East New York can shed some more light on this.
