    How fast do expresses actually travel?

    Between 34th - W4th on the is a speedy run. Surprisingly 34th - 14th on the Bway is pretty fast as well.

    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    Provisions for a layup. IIRC Bedford-Nostrand was supposed to be a "terminal" for an eastward extension of the crosstown line.

    The other day I had a train conductor close the doors before anyone got on.

    New York City Subway car listing

    To be fair putting a sticker on a car is far less work than repairing an HVAC
  5. IIRC the doesn't really cost anything extra to run, it's just a with a different stopping pattern.
  6. Why isn't this being done system-wide. Surely the TGC can inspect better than a human can.
  7. For at least 3-4 million(?) New Yorkers this is literally not possible. Without the subway and bus system existing in some form the city would not be able to function. Remember that NYC is not built around automobiles, and we are feeling the effects of this with the amount of FHVs that have come in. If you don't believe me head to Houston or Broome during rush hour. We're soon about to feel the effects of losing the and that will be very telling of how people will get around without the subway. At absolute worst we will see a drastic service reduction (no express, no nighttime). The subway must exist in some capacity, New York is too densely populated for anything else. Also on an unrelated note I would like to point out that enforcing fare-evasion is more expensive than it's worth.

    S&P lowers MTA's credit rating

    A+ isn't that good.

    What do those boxes signify anyway?

    S&P lowers MTA's credit rating

    Hopefully this will ring some alarm bells up top. Congestion pricing and maybe even a tax on FHVs need to happen.
  11. I've been noticing some rush hour s showing up on the Eastern Parkway and Lex locals in the past few days. I wonder what's causing it...
  12. I wonder if it's actually switch problems ie problems with the trackage. The switch at 96th street is new.
  13. If the train is stuck, then yes - trains are not concerned with whether or not someone needs medical attention.
  14. They would likely be switching at 57th and not 34th so they're not going to gum up the upper broadway express tracks. It will also be good to get those 2 tph off of 60th street which is very congested as is. Second ave. has the capacity to spare.
