    Rockaway Beach Branch

    @MrQuesada What would be your view on this pattern? Far Rock/RPK-207 via express Lefferts-168; local in Manhattan and express in Brooklyn new tunnel built after Whitehall to link to Hoyt Schermehorn outer tracks (Transit museum would not be used however as it might be too high for the river) Bay Ridge service replaced by a that runs from Bowery (central tracks with a reconfiguration) to Bay Ridge.

    MTA Bus Operations: Scrapped Equipment List

    How many 98s and D60s are left? Sad to see them go... I used to ride the former on the M31 and M57 all the time and the latter ones on the M79.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Lack of competition... I used to fly into Newark because airfare is around $20 cheaper than JFK or LGA, but now that NJT charges so much I might as well fly to LGA... at least I will only need to pay $6 when the PATH gets extended to EWR.

    Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

    I wonder how much support he might lose from this... I hope people don't still blindly vote him for his party. Guess I'm going to Chi-Town or the west coast for college...

    I'd be bummed but they need to go anyways... I just hope that they preserve at least one of the 2 car sets as with the R44 now just a static exhibit, they should at least preserve an operating version of its sister car...

    Subway history question - B Division

    If you were to send the to Forest Hills then I would actually just extend it and the to 179th assuming the stays at Whitehall or runs to 9th Av... it would eliminate the FHills conga, speed up Hillside commutes, and rid the of that awful merge at 75th. Unlike the it would not be a problem since the run would be shorter.

    Subway history question - B Division

    Can't you try the to Astoria and the to Forest Hills? Here are some good reasons: Astoria has greater demand A great source of unreliability is from QBL QBL local is similar to the in Brooklyn in that many transfer, so 10-15 tph and the would be adequate It would keep full-time local service to Astoria while the could be replaced by the on weekends/nights The only problem in this is that the would lose its yard, but this could be remedied with the conversion of 36th-38th or a LGA extension with a yard on ConEd property.

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    Doesn't 190th have a non-elevator exit to 192nd/Bennet? If so, why would they close it?

    I don't want to sound cynical here, but that S.P.E.E.D. acronym sounds like its hiding something... (Superficial Public Entity Evading Direction?) Hope its not one of those commissions that just point out the obvious and get paid millions for it.

    List of closed New York City Subway entrances

    On the topic of walkways/passageways, West 8th also had one that led from the NB Culver platform directly over Surf and the parking lots to the NY Aquarium, but it was removed back in 2013 for structural reasons.

    Fix & Fortify - 14th Street Tunnels Closure

    If Cuomo doesn't give a f*ck about subway riders what will make him carry about some neighborhood? Donors are all that matter.

    Fix & Fortify - 14th Street Tunnels Closure

    I seriously doubt some small group of whiny NIMBYs in the West Village are going to be the next Florida or Ohio in 2020. Not even the MTA would be dumb enough to operate a line with no yard access. Now can you please give it up already? My head hurts from your lack of logic.

    Why improve national security techniques to reduce terrorism when you can just slow everyone down with metal detectors to please the paranoid?
