  1. I've wondered why that's the case too. Why is it that motormen get paid higher salaries than their partners when it is in fact the conductor's train? The conductor has the crucial responsibility of ensuring that passengers safely make it both on and off that train. If the motorman upfront is moving that train in an unsafe fashion, the conductor has the authority to pull that EBV and stop the train altogether. The motorman and conductor should be paid the same rate at the very least. I see it as a cost-saving measure...
  2. There is no demand for there to be buses running back and forth along Liberty Avenue going all the way out to Jamaica at such a high frequency. Like I said before, you're not saving the operating budget by substituting the shuttle train with 24/7 Q112 bus service or these hypothetical owl trips...
  3. Leave the current service pattern as it already is. The shuttle train connecting Euclid Avenue and Lefferts Boulevard is superior to a Q112 running on 1-hour headways overnight. If you miss a Q112 departing Rockaway Boulevard by 30 seconds, you're going to be really tight knowing that you now have to wait an hour for the next one. That's a huge annoyance, especially if you're trying to get home from work at 3:00 AM.
  4. Costs wouldn’t be cut back if you discontinue the Liberty Avenue Shuttle train and substitute with 24-hour Q112 service.
  5. I rather go directly to Wikipedia’s sources than Wikipedia itself. Enough said.
  6. So I was at the 3rd Avenue–149th Street Station a few days ago and noticed that the MetroCard bargain squad was camped out affront the turnstiles as usual. It was hilarious seeing that with the emergency gate wide open with the NYPD staring them down on the other side of the tracks.
  7. It’s not so much a phenomenon, as it is the fact that the LIRR right of way in those particular neighborhoods doesn’t align with major roads, which causes them to be inconvenient. Furthermore, the passengers that utilize the nearby Q12/Q13/Q15/Q28/Q31/Q76 aren’t the people who regularly use the LIRR for a multitude of reasons. Demographic travel patterns for those who take the train and/or NYCT buses is distinct to those who use the LIRR in the same neighborhoods. The people getting off the Q12/Q13 at say, Northern Boulevard & 192nd Street (Near the Auburndale LIRR Station) originate from the Flushing–Main Street Station, compared to Midtown Manhattan for the people getting off the LIRR at Auburndale Station.
  8. I see more people heading to the Bx13 for the Bx6 in the future, as they’ll be inconvenienced by having this new Bx18 backtrack to it’s one and only terminal.
  9. May that man rest in peace. He didn’t deserve to go down like that in such a horrendous way, especially when he was just doing his job.
  10. I disagree with the new Bx18 routing from the final redesign plan. It’s as if they tried to compensate for straightening out the Bx11, and since the Bx18 is in the vicinity, they just filled in the gap. My thoughts aren’t to render circular lines as inefficient, but the idea in this scenario seems like an attempt to justify cutting corners.
