  1. Pictures of the bus after removal: https://nypost.com/2021/01/15/mta-bus-smashed-up-after-removal-from-cross-bronx-expressway/
  2. https://nypost.com/2020/12/18/cops-arrest-alleged-arsonist-who-killed-mta-conductor-in-march/
  3. The full RGB signs are probably too expensive to retrofit and require more reprogramming to get it to work right with an older computer system. I'm more curious if the MTA plans on rolling these new signs out on the R188 in piecemeal fashion, just replacing the ones that have degraded original signs.
  4. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/ny-train-derails-after-unhinged-straphanger-throws-object-onto-tracks-20200920-gdtnd5ngkfcuhoeq566csuxx3i-story.html Daily News is reporting that wooden planks were clamped onto the tracks by a person who was apprehended at the station.
  5. ABC7 and Reddit are reporting that objects were thrown onto the tracks causing the train to derail. Possibly steel pipes. Insert image from URL
  6. I thought that pilot was completed and they would've removed this appendage by now.
  7. https://www.engadget.com/new-york-one-metro-delay-075749877.html Full OMNY on the subway has been delayed to December. Buses still seem to be on time, mainly because they can install them OOS at the depots and stay socially distant.
  8. Take a virtual ride in the new and improved Canarsie tubes.
  9. Now being reported as the train operator was the one who passed away. Was found on the roadbed.
  10. It's the new popular business thinking. Outsource everything you don't want to do to someone else, even if it's kind of part of the core of your business. Sadly, this will just mean worse lives for most of us that have no choice but to live far away from the train.
  11. https://gothamist.com/news/mta-plan-subsidize-late-night-uber-lyft Looks like Queens would be a prime target to trial this out in. So there goes any hope of reasonable express bus service or restoration of cut service spans from the draft.
  12. I guess it kind of makes sense because much of Queens is reliant on bus-to-subway transfers and vice versa due to the lack of subway coverage. Probably not going to get a ton of takers without transfers being an option yet with a lagging bus roll out.
