    Some more B110 stuff

    When did the B110 use MCIs?

    Isn't this just a copy-paste of the MLK schedules. The SIM1C also runs every 30 minutes most of the day. Worse than Sunday service.

    Ideas to Alleviate Severe 7 Train Overcrowding

    So I made some edits to my QM3/QM9 Proposal, I've also made a map and a mock schedule for both routes. QM3/QM9 Map: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Wu7J7h6judAnkS2OhfEQdjFwqXqFBzx2&usp=sharing QM3/QM9 Schedule: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17OVrb56S64FfBr8pmqv64AvgHGiuUV1SucJUKqQvrus/edit?usp=sharing Main Points: QM3: - The first/last stop in Queens in both directions is Northern Blvd/College Point Blvd. The QM9 would cover the Western half of Northern Blvd. - Span increases and AM service runs every 20 minutes from 6:30 AM to 7:30 AM. All other times service runs every 30 minutes. QM9: - Route rerouted to severe Northen Blvd instead of Roosevelt Ave from 69th Street to 108th Street. - The first/last stop in Queens in both directions is Northern Blvd/69th Street. - Service runs 7 days a week.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    The SI express buses Via Brooklyn are also good. Beautiful scenery of NY harbor.

    I think that's reasonable. You're basically getting the same ammeitties as an Express Bus with a bathroom. But would it be $6.50 all times then?

    For the LIRR, maybe you can extend the city ticket program for rush hours as well. So the LIRR would be $4.25 for the whole day within Queens. I'm going to edit my QM9 propospal for it to run on Northern instead of Roosevelt. I'll come up with details later.

    5 trains running every 20 minutes

    Don't forget about the in the Rockaways. 20-24 minutes on weekends.

    The QM3 coves Northern but only a handful of trips each day and west of City Field is Only served in the PM. Modifing the QM3 could be a good idea.

    Like I said, bus Lanes on Roosevelt would be rush hours only. Off-peak they would be used for parking. Streets like Hylan Blvd does this. NYC is supposed to transit orientated. Queens Blvd however, should have 24 hour bus Lanes from QBP to Roosevelt Ave.

    Ok, thanks for clarifying. It was still on Queens Blvd at 6:15 so that's why it might of confused me.

    I saw the 5:30 on bus time, it was a 2XXX bus. But it only showed up in Queens.

    Did the 6:30 and 7 PM buses come? All the other buses came.

    I'm going to start working on a full mock schedule for the QM9. Do all new routes go to NYCT? Or can new routes made from scratch goes to Bus since CP would be an excellent Depot to run a route like that.

    Adding on to this, I'll address the off-peak schedule (if ridership warrants it). Most of the time the QM9 will run every 30 minutes to Main Straight and every 60 minutes (every other bus) to College Point. On Saturday mornings and PM house service will be increased to every 15-20 minutes with every other bus serving College Point.
