  1. Just a random thought just got off the SIM33c and it had a pre-pandemic load (around 40 ish people on the bus once it hit the battery tunnel). One lady even went under the chains and sat in the 2nd row). Another thought, by cutting a 3rd of the local buses, buses are getting SRO much faster, which might be dangerous since it’s impossible to social distance.
  2. Deleted (Buses we’re running on a Saturday schedule today)
  3. Well it's bound to come soon, NICE already started requiring people to pay from the 27th of June so the should follow suit. The should keep their eagle teams though. Without them, the buses would still be "free" since fare beating won't be enforced.
  4. I took one of them today From Amityville to Penn Station (Expressed from Babylon) stopped at Amityville, Freeport, Jamaica an Penn Station, another super express left half an hour before which had the same stopping pattern but made an extra stop at Woodside. I believe that these trains were going to be deheads from Babylon to Penn Station to become peak trains so instead of making them NIS they made them stop at limited stops otw to Penn Station to get some extra cash. So ridership doesn't really matter. (I was the only one in the car the whole ride.)
  5. When is the summer pick is supposed to start?
  6. Thinking about that, do you think that the SIM1C should make a stop in Bay Ridge overnight? (similar to what the X17C did on weekends.) It could give the X28 riders by Bay Ridge a direct trip to the city and most other X28 riders can take transfer to/from the B1 in Bay Ridge since most of the X28 route is a few blocks from the B1.
  7. “Low Ridership”, you mean, not running the buses properly so people just give up on using them and use alternative methods. With the exception of the BM3 the alternatives for all of the other lines tell you to take local buses that for the most part don’t go into Manhattan. The core reason why people would take the express bus is to get to Manhattan. Like how is the Bx39 going to bring me to Midtown?
  8. And the BM3 is not running again, what a surprise 🙄
  9. I remember reading an article a while ago saying that if the went that path, they should keep the subway running on certain nights due to higher ridership. For example, close between 1-5 AM on Sunday through Thursday nights but keep the subway running on Friday and Saturday night since more people are riding late at night coming from bars, shows etc... I do agree that it the subway is closed overnight, they should use that time to do work so that there are less service disruptions during the day.
  10. IIRC the didn’t do another pick since January. When the was running Sunday service on every line, there were more B/Os available to do overtime so the overnight service was alright since more B/Os were willing to do overtime. Now with all lines running weekday service there are less B/Os willing to do overtime which leads to unpredictable service cuts overnight. If the did a pick when the city started to reopen and included the overnight service as regular runs, things would probably be much better now.
  11. Found this article to be interesting. What do you guys think?
  12. No BM3 running tonight either, i'm not surprised.
  13. I think that at this point most (if not all) people that relied on the BM3 overnight has switched to alternative methods whether its taking another bus, using a ride hauling service or just straight up driving. I wouldn't be surprised if the formally eliminates the BM3 overnight soon due to "very low ridership".
  14. Posted at 06/19/20 7:05 PM BM3 bus service is canceled for the remainder of the evening and through the overnight as we work to provide as much service with the crews available to us. Now they’re cutting evening service too, don’t advertise a service that is nonexistent.
  15. Sorry if this has been asked before but why is there no transit service of any type to Breezy Point? The nearest bus stop is 1.5+ miles away.
