    The S98 doesn't even go to New Jersey. Did you mean the S89?

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    The video if anyone wants to see it: https://youtu.be/aiHLF1tinzk The adds should be moving towards the back of the bus for the last 2 weeks of the campaign.
  7. If Bus Service was faster and more reliable, more people would use them.
  8. Then why does the Q67 run outside of rush if only 1-2 people use it? Wouldn't the just cut it if no one was really riding it?
  9. I Agree, only routes with low overnight ridership should have hourly service. All other services that run overnight should be at 30 min headways tops. But where is the ridership for 30 Min headways on Weekend Mornings and Evenings on the S50 LTD, S70 and S75 buses and on Sundays for the S75?
  10. The Times buses are on 60-minute headways is when there wouldn't be enough demand to run them on shorter headways. For example, the S70 would run on 60 minutes headways when the Mall is Closed. Other than to connect with services on Hylan or at the ETC, Which most of those routes at the ETC run on the south shore anyway. I just don't see the ridership for anything else during that time period. If you have buses that are packed during that time (which I highly doubt), I would then add more buses.
  11. A lot of MTA Bus Routes have 40-60 Min Headways on weekend morning and evenings. The Q67 has 60 Minute Headways during the weekends and there aren't many complaints towards them. The frequencies on my proposed routes would be the starting frequencies and service would be added/reduced based on the demand the routes are getting.
  12. Makes sense for the South Shore. Some routes would have 40-60 min headways during weekend mornings and weekend evenings and the S75 would have 60 min headways throughout the day on Sunday. That should work. Rush hour headways should be no more than 20 mins but no less than 15. (The S50 LTD gets 12 mins in the AM and the S72 gets 10 Mins in the AM due to serving the Outerbridge Bus Station.) The S72 Gets 60 Minute Headways on Weekends due to it's Proximity to the SIR Shuttle I Proposed.
  13. That's why my south shore routes would run on 12-20 Min headways Rush Hours and 30-60 minutes other times. I don't Expect a huge boost in ridership but with the new Bus Station at the Outerbridge and better coverage in the south shore to major destinations, each of these lines would have a decent amount of ridership to keep them running.
