  1. Frankly, Howard Beach JFK would serve as a better short turn terminal. It balances service to both casino travelers and airport travelers, and serves more people.
  2. Yes, it was loosely mentioned at the end of this linked article. Personally, I support the idea since it increases peoples mobility to/from the casino. That said, a Rockaway bound platform would have to be engineered properly given the lack of size on the other side of the tracks (an overground passageway would also need to be built, retaining ADA also is something to consider here).
  3. @Uncle Floyd Fan Agreed, the overruns continually displayed on all levels of government here only tend to sink this project further into the rabbit hole and, overall, work against it's completion. By NY standards, this has already gotten really bad...
  4. I'll say most have seen someone they find attractive on subways, usually by their characteristics, most will never talk to them. I however haven't been in love with anybody on the subway, that's getting to know them for months. Most people on the subway here in the city tend to be reserved on the system as it is meant for travel. And I know some wouldn't want to even meet up with others on the subway, due to all the incidents going on lately of harassment. Finding love on the system happens, but most I know prefer doing it the conventional way, welcome!
  5. train cars and express buses aren’t based out of the same place. There’s good chance many will probably get fixed with some protest.
  6. This is devastating information to hear, hopefully this plan will be more of a pesky rumor. And much less reality, since the museum is really iconic of the modern MTA
  7. You can't. I'd presume you may be able to do so with help from mods (if you have a good reason), but knowing you and this "work" you do, I wouldn't waste anybody's time...
  8. Buses (especially artics) being forced to run along decrepit snake road in 2019 is almost criminal to me. A close cousin of mine has been stuck on the bus for as long as 2 and a half hours due to flooding from start to end, and in just one direction. I'd much rather have consistency on the line and this change is pretty good in terms of that, delays on the 113 and 114 should be mitigated to an extent and relieve some riders pains I've seen in Far Rock. As for people concerned over lost service on Brookville, I dont see a problem with riders changing from the 114 to 111, especially if it's for everyone's safety. Snake road is a disaster these days...
  9. As recently as early-mid June, yes they've popped up. Though not to a high degree (many days I've seen had none).
  10. The switch between interlining and deinterlining is pretty unusual, at least for most of these plans as it does cause confusion to have terminals switch on a large scale, biweekly basis. Running all services over the weekends is also a bit extra, especially if ridership losses serve as it's only justification.
  11. Certainly odd to say the least. Reminds me of how subway cars were vandalized with graffiti on a daily basis back in the 80's.
  12. The front ones on the R46 and R68 are fine and have been for years now, no need to change it. The 32s are too old to need them now, but at least being able to distinguish color on the 142-179s helps a lot at rush hour. They’re also dirt cheap anyways.
  13. Why do hyperbolic threads like these even exist?
  14. I honestly don't know if that "acorn stairlift" type thing will work, but I will say that if it did, it likely wouldn't be going in a super high ridership station that demands that people must get through it as quickly as possible. This would belong in a smaller to moderate station whose area (population wise) is little served by accessibility, where it could have it's uses as people don't need to move too efficiently. Anything bigger than that, and the elevators the way to go, no debate there.
  15. People that tend to annoy me are those closed off to outside ideas, and would rather complain aimlessly than critique objectively. I’m victim to it myself on some occasions. I could give a personal example, but there’s too many to list...
  16. Many people are still affected badly by it might I add... But yeah I agree, the will feed it down our throats while they can bluntly save cash in the process, I'm sure it'll get some positive or noteworthy press and some bus-fanners for a while too. The sad thing with this is, just like in Staten Island. There is potential in fixing and maintaining the network here if we actually put aside a good idea on the table, since I will say the current setup isn't even close to perfect at all.
  17. Indeed, it was a dumb idea to begin with ! Do you really think if everybody had a gun, especially in America, no controversy or trouble would occur when it's threatens/fires on people? Just one man used a gun back in 1984 to fend off pestering strap-hangers on this subway, and it sent the nation into a huge debate on the topic in general. It didn't stop anybody from riding the system though. Giving people guns may be a solution for some to a problem, but it is not a unanimous solution for all and never will stop some people as @GojiMet86 said.
  18. Cant wait to see someone post about that on r/thathappened lol.
  19. These recent hits seem more irritating to me regardless of the purpose. Least of our problems I suppose but still disappointing to see.
  20. That makes sense. I was always under the belief that this was the tight control of the city. The bridge still needs to be upgraded or replaced in my opinion, make it faster for both boats and trains to pass through.
  21. That's actually a really good point you brought up, parents can only go so far for their children sometimes. Even one little slip up as you and @ABOGbrooklyn pointed out can lead to a huge butterfly effect. I still encourage people to try hard in protecting children near the subway, since these events could be better prevented.
  22. Sometimes unfortunately, you can't question peoples instincts and luck into getting into and out of certain places, that may be beyond the point here. I do agree with you however that his parent's should've definitely kept a better eye on him, especially as the child's life isn't guaranteed on the subway seeing his state. Total applauds to Mr. Kiffin though, his natural instincts in saving the child show a true capability of T/O's to remain professional and act fast.
  23. Chopping down a few trees wont make climate change effects come any sooner frankly. It's a minuscule trade-off for a proposal with theoretical potential to work.
  24. That to Rosedale idea belongs somewhere else... Gimme a break with these proposals.
  25. I could see both the former option happening realistically and I support it, it has happened many times before and people deal with it good enough. The latter option may come a little bit later eventually since that bridge is fine. That sounds like a legal nightmare frankly between the and the city, it'll take years for that idea to pass in the area (if at all). I'd focus on making the raising and closing process of the bridge quicker and/or more reliable for now, or raising it higher.
