    Brooklyn Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    I noticed. They’re trying to undo your famous 1978 Southwest Brooklyn Bus Changes and making things worse than before 1978. They’re supposed to finish what the 1978 changes left out, not completely undo them. Did they forget that you made those changes? No wonder why I want the MTA to hire you back for bus planning.

    Brooklyn Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    I saw them and one flaw: no east-west service to/from Canarsie Plaza. The B17 and it’s branch via the Rockaway Pkwy station (which would see more riders in April 2019 when the is shutdown in Manhattan) is insufficient to serve the plaza and nearby Brooklyn Terminal Market. This needs to be addressed. To provide some east-west access to the plaza, the B23 would be revived. Because this proposal would impact other neighborhoods, the B16 would be restructured. Specifically: The B23 would start at 86th Street station, and follow the routing you proposed for the route in Proposal B and D. The main difference is the route traveling south on Rogers Avenue instead of New York Avenue. From Kings Hwy and Beverly Road, instead of ending there, it would continue east along Beverly Road and Avenue B to Remsen Avenue and south there to Avenue D and Remsen Avenue. The B16 would be rerouted to run via Ft. Hamilton Pkwy, closing service gaps along Ft. Hamilton Pkwy and 13th Avenue, which they finally did right. Also a branch of the B7 would run east via Foster Avenue to the same terminal, providing one or two-bus service to the plaza.
  3. Not to mention less-polluting. I was thinking that instead of 367 XD40s (7484-7850) they should’ve ordered 400 XDE40s (7484-7883) to expand service in Brooklyn and Manhattan, especially on the B46 SBS. They should’ve done this: 400 New Flyer XDE40s 7484-7883 7484-7547 (64) Jamaica 7548-7593 (46) Mike Quill, with 4 or 5 units in rotation to Manhattanville. 7594-7635 (42) East New York 7636-7689 (54) Flatbush for B46 SBS 7690-7713 (24) Fresh Pond 7714-7737 (24) Grand Avenue 7738-7783 (46) Ulmer Park 7784-7793 (10) Jackie Gleason for Train 7794-7883 (90) Grand Avenue for Train This ensures service expansions wherever possible. When the shutdown is over, 7784-7813 would go to UP.

    I wonder what he think of them? I think of it as great. All it needs is a few modifications to make it work for the Brooklyn of 2018.

    I saw it and I am not happy with it. Why didn’t they use your proposals from 2004 and tweak them for the modern day travel patterns? Do these guys not live in 2018?

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    I believe it’s at Ralph Avenue and St. Marks Avenue. I wonder how much damage the bus sustained?

    This is why it’s more efficient to have the SBS run 7 days a week, like just about every SBS route that was implemented in the last few years. If you’re not going to run SBS on weekends, might as well not bother with SBS at all and expand the current Limited Stop service. Do you think it’s complicated to build a slip lane anywhere along Kings Hwy? Also, when does the congestion by Mt. Sinai Hospital occur? Has it happened all day, even at 6:50 A.M.?

    I agree. At least they could’ve had weekend service running every 12 minutes, at the bare minimum, to see if that would build ridership.

    Why would they keep it the same when Bx41 LTD service was also rush hours only, and was expanded to 7-days a week when it became an SBS route? Is every borough getting treated differently for SBS route implementations?

    I just saw the same bus stop signs at Utica Avenue today. Eastbound signs say Spring Creek, and westbound bus stop signs probably said Bensonhurst.

    And I’m guessinb buses for the service will be sitting idle at the depot during that time too? Who thought of this weekday-only SBS crap?

    I’ll definitely be there for the Brooklyn Bus Network redesign meetings (if my college classes don’t interfere with them). I got some nice proposals for the borough. @BrooklynBus, it will be your time to shine at these meetings.

    MTA Not Going Your Way

    They should start by closing the Fort Hamilton Pkwy and 13th Avenue gaps in Borough Park and Bensonhurst respectively, which has been your flagship complaint for bus service in those areas. JFK Airport access from southern Brooklyn also needs to be fixed. They should have that bus route you proposed back in 2004 that would run via Avenue H and Linden Blvd and also route you proposed that would run via the Belt Pkwy and various streets in Brooklyn. P.S, they really need to hire you back at the MTA.

    And they couldn’t split it 50/50?
  15. I’m also guessing that it would also cut into resources for the shuttles, since only 96 new XD40s were allocated for the L shuttles and this new route was created after they had done the assignments for the buses. Why didn’t they add this route to the initial plans instead of adding it later after buses were allocated?
