  1. I don’t know. I guess for the shutdown only. Wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to redo the route itself to have better ridership on it.
  2. The thing is they’re adding service to the B6 for the shutdown. The b6 and B82 serve the same neighborhoods and run together on both ends of thier routes. The difference is that the 82 has a direct connection to the B train at kings hwy. the B is a 6th Avenue line that runs express.
  3. I don't understand why they aren't adding more service to the B82 for the L train shutdown? It provides a direct connection to the B train unlike the b6. Thats just my opinion and concern. Also to add the B39 will be discontinued until after the shutdown.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    What I was saying was hypothetically, nothing factual at all.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    No the B38 and Q58 local would stay at FP while their sbs counterparts would be at Grand avenue. The other routes I can't comment on because other people have commented on them already. I was just thinking off my head of why they are now splitting the routes.

    I guess local routes would stay at FP depot and SBS would be at grand. The logistics would make sense.

    I’m guessing the B38 and Q58 are prepping for future sbs. Reason for it going to grand.

    I posted a screenshot of the doc for it signed. Someone posted it on the subway forum.

    MTA Spells Out Service Cuts for Express Bus Service

    I think cutting back service on LIRR that is way too costly should help. Reason being is that they could use that for freight and have freight companies pay to up keep the rails and such.

    But what’s the point of being comfortable and not transferring as much if I have to wait an extensive amount of time for a bus? I’m going to use a quicker and cheaper alternative.

    MTA Spells Out Service Cuts for Express Bus Service

    I feel like for certain parts of the city off peak express service aren’t doing great because sometimes people can get to their destinations faster via bus and train. I sometimes take the BM1 home if I had a long day out in the city and don’t want to stand on the train. But to me if I had to wait 30 minutes for one bus and and hour and a half for to get home I’m not going to invest my time into an express bus. I could spend cheaper money on the bus and train and get home in 50 minutes. It’s more so the timing that maybe the seller but so far it isn’t working.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    It was said in a meeting months ago the Bx6 local was going artic by January. The Bx36 was supposed to be going artic as well but I think it’s going to be partially or just for rush hour trips.

    Same thing happened with the B35. Was supposed to go artic now but ended up happening earlier.
  14. Pretty sure I read somewhere the buses were his responsibility while the subway was the governors. Either way he does have some involvement in it.... Well lack there of.
