  1. 2532, a prevost, is doing a run on the S59.
  2. Why doesn't the make a special marathon day schedule for Staten Island bus routes since the Express buses have to make long detours and the VNB closed? Have the ferry and SIR run every 15 minutes and all of the ferry buses run 15 minutes or better since the ferry is going to be the only way out without sitting in traffic. Maybe also have S89 service run every 20 minutes to connect with the HBLR?
  3. Talking about the 42nd Street , why didn't the have the shuttle go from GCT to Penn Station with a stop at Times Square in between? That would've connected the 2 railroad terminals in the city much better and could've been cheaper than ESA.
  4. Some places in the Bronx are far from subways and places that the subway serves (especially at the ends of subway lines) takes a while to get out of The Bronx. For example, afternoon BxM7 riders in Co-op City will have to take a local train 18 stops just to get out of The Bronx. They also have to take a local bus to reach the . Don't also forget about the frequent "service changes" in the subway. Well, why should people have to pay to drive into the busy business districts of Manhattan if the decides to not provide quick and efficient transit options for people that live in transit deserts. The city should tell the , No service = No congestion pricing.
  5. Seems like the is trying to go to the way of the BM's for most of the Bronx Express Routes, having inbound service end in the afternoon (before the PM rush) and having outbound service start in the early-mid afternoon. What are people supposed to do if they need to get to the city after 5? Take a local bus to the subway? It the dares go with this plan, congestion pricing would have to be blocked, since people in those transit deserts would have no efficient transit options and driving/taking car service into Manhattan would become the best option for them, making it no sense to penalize these people that have no other efficient transit options. Last year, every Bronx express bus route (save the BxM18) saw an increase in riders, the should be increasing express bus service, not cutting them.
  6. I've waited for buses at the NB bus stops at Ring Rd/Sears Platinum Ave and Ring Rd/Macys Platinum Ave for years and I just realized that the bus shelters are Beeline shelters, they even have the Beeline logos around the bus shelters.
  7. I find it funny that my Megabus tickets from Syracuse, NY to NYC only cost $5 per person while the express bus, which travels within NYC costs $6.75.
  8. I only thing is that the West shore isn't as populated as the other parts of the island and IDK how many people Working at the Teleport from NJ would use the train instead of their cars. The North Shore Line connects with the RVL at Cranford and riders can go from NJ to SI easier by public transportation, so that's why I think the connection would be beneficial.
  9. The other reason for terminating at Arlington is to connect with the North Shore Line if Heavy Rail was used but I don't think that the West Shore Line is as important as the North Shore Line (with NJ extension onto the RVL for some RVL trains to run to St. George) and the NJCL connection between Perth Amboy and Tottenville. (Most likely the link to Tottenville would be at South Amboy).
  10. That could work, but it should also serve the Teleport and the NY Container Terminal so that workers can easily commute from NJ to the Teleport and NY Container Terminal, so it could end at Arlington.
  11. They also could of connected the North shore Branch with the NEC or the Raritan Valley Line via the Arthur Kill Vertical Lift Bridge if they chose HRT. (Yes I know some track connections would have to be made for this to happen.) NJT could also have some trains that terminate at St. George via the North Shore Line for workers in Downtown Manhattan via the Ferry or for NJ workers that work in SI. (If there was also a bridge from Perth Amboy to Tottenville that connected the NJCL, you could have some NJCL trains run to St. George for same reasons as above.)
  12. Did the S78 operate every 30 minutes on weekends before the S79 SBS?
  13. And then they cut the service. The S59 and S78 on Sundays run every 30 minutes now, with the S78 still bunching. People shifted from the local to the "SBS" and the local passengers suffer. Talking about the S79, they need to add some trips that just run in SI on weekdays, Try taking the S79 north of Dorp going SB in the AM and NB in the Afternoon. All of the S79s skip the stops because all of the Brooklyn Riders fill up the buses to the rim, forcing SI riders to take the S78 or wait a very long time for a S79 that has room.
