  1. Other than this express bus fare increases and no coins stuff, why don't they just treat the SIR like a traditional subway fare-wise? Have turnstiles at every stop, which will mean MetroCard machines at every stop and would collect more revenue. People on SI would also have better access to MetroCards.
  2. Coins aren't being allowed on the express bus anymore.
  3. Here are my thoughts of the SIM service changes coming on the 28th. I will be talking mainly about off-peak service throughout the island. SIM2, SIM3/3C, SIM32 & SIM33C: First the SIM3/3C, the gap in the morning between the last SIM34 and the first SIM3C in the morning is longer, 43 minutes to be exact. I would have converted the 9:15 AM SIM3 trip into a SIM3C to close the gap in Downtown service. The SIM32 should also have a 7:25 PM trip added since the first SIM33C doesn't get to Downtown until 7:43 PM. SIM33 AM trips from 5-5:40 AM should be converted into SIM33C trips to give Gannon Ave early morning Downtown service. I would also really like to see the SIM3C and SIM33C buses coronated with them both not leaving at the same time. Weekday evening service towards SI is where I want to get to my proposal. Both the SIM3C and SIM33C have service every 20 minutes through most of the evening, just like the X10 did. However, the X10 was the only route to the North Shore in the evening while today, both the SIM3C and SIM33C provide North Shore service. Service can run on both lines every 30 minutes after 7 PM (So the SIM3C will depart at 6:35 PM, leaving at the :05 and :35 of every hour until 12:05 AM, with the last trip leaving at 12:50 AM, while after 6:50 PM, the SIM33C will leave at the :20 and :50 of each hour until 12:20 AM, with the last trip leaving at 1:20 AM, saving 9 trips in total, which can be used to add hourly midday service (and maybe evening service if the is willing to pay a little bit more) on the SIM2, due to the fact that Tottenville used to have midday service with the X17 off-peak. Towards Manhattan, trips can be added at 10 AM, 11 AM, 12 PM, 1 PM, 2 PM and 3 PM, while from Manhattan, SIM2 trips can be added at 11 AM, 12 PM and 1 PM. And if the doesn't mind adding some trips to Tottenville and the deep South Shore later into the evening, 9 PM and 10 PM SIM2 departures can be added.
  4. There are some pros and cons. I like the added SI bound SIM4C service after 1:30 PM on weekdays. Those hourly headways were ridiculous.
  5. But there's a wider gap between the last SIM34 and the first SIM3C in the morning. 43 minutes to be exact. They cut SIM3 trips in the PM as well.
  6. Only saw express bus schedules, not local buses.
  7. Never knew that the SI limiteds weren't running today (save the S89 and S93). Or did I just miss something?
  8. The SIM1C is also probably going to be a mess as well, 30 minutes service Manhattan bound after 11 AM? Worse than Sunday service. Maybe they'll add SIM3 service in the PM rush today?
  9. Didn't @Via Garibaldi 8 say something about looking into the situation.
  10. But I don't know why they do that if they don't do it to the other routes? (They don't have the SIM4C running instead of the SIM4/8 or the SIM1C running instead of the SIM1C/10.) Why does SIM3 riders have to get screwed over while other lines only have a reduced headway? The SIM2 doesn't even change on Good Friday. Exactly the same as the weekday schedule.
  11. And also the SIM3 will not run tommorow. SIM3 riders will have to stay with the elongated SIM3C but I feel like people are just going to get off in downtown and take the subway up. Some might use the SIM30/31 but those routes run every 20-30 minutes. However, the SIM3C will have early morning SI bound service.
  12. So SI has no more representatives for the MTA. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.silive.com/news/2019/04/mta-board-no-longer-has-staten-island-representative.html%3foutputType=amp
  13. A bus crashed on Richmond Ave. Looks like 8303. Here's an article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.silive.com/news/2019/04/crash-reported-on-richmond-avenue-in-eltingville-during-wednesday-am-rush-hour.html%3foutputType=amp Seems like an S59 crashed into a speeding car.
  14. Yes, I agree with more frequency corrodiors but I strongly dissagree about what they did to Hylan. Taking two routes that run every 6-10 mins and making one route that runs every 3-5 minutes wasn't the right option. People rather have a route that runs every 10 minutes and the trip takes one hour than a route that runs every 5 and the trip takes 30 mins longer.
