    No more funding for Elmhurst station

    Would've been nice to have that LIRR station back... oh well.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Oh, I should've clarified in the 1st post that I'm referring to anouncements like "Please no littering, smoking, radio playing, etc..." or "The fare is 2.75" or "Assaulting a bus operator is a felony".

    Do bus operators activate those pre-recorded announcements or are they automatically played on a timer?

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Today I was waiting for a College Pt bound Q65 at 164th and Booth Memorial, the 1st bus skips my stop while in service, so a few minutes go by and a 2nd bus stops for me and some guy. The driver waves her hand over the farebox as if to say "Not working". So I go take a seat and while I'm doing that, the guy behind me pays his fare in coins. Later during the ride she's picking up more riders and they pay with their metrocards. I'm left wondering what the heck. Sure it was great saving $2.75 but aren't buses supposed to go out of service if the farebox is not functioning?

  10. Someone might ask Mr. Byford, "Where's the R train?" or they might say "Fix the freakin R".
