  1. The Outer Borough Transportation Fund https://qns.com/story/2018/04/03/cuomo-announces-50m-annual-funding-transit-improvements-queens-outer-boros/
  2. Should be the between 149th Street-Grand Concourse (or Burnside Avenue N/B only)) in the Bronx and Utica Avenue in Brooklyn
  3. They already do this now from 11:47pm (first shuttle) to 12:17am (last express). They will just be doing this a bit longer now.
  4. MTA would likely cut the weekend all together and just extend the weekend to Utica / New Lots Avenue, good for weekend late night / riders, bad for weekend daytime / / riders.
  5. Even then work would have to be restricted on a few days for College Football games (including the Pinstripe Bowl) and some NYC FC soccer games.
  6. The doesn't directly connect to the W20 bus and it is a longer trip for those coming from the Bx10, Bx16, Bx34, and W20 to get to the than the . Also the is also more frequent than the (which now runs 12 minutes on some weekends because of trackwork).
  7. To secure Federal funding and to make sure SI doesn't get left out of the SBS program.
  8. https://gothamist.com/2019/06/17/mta_subway_pride_weekend.php
  9. The will have to handle almost all of the Bronx riders between Bowling Green and 125th Street weekday evenings as the only express.
  10. MTA already does this sometimes on Monday mornings after a Clark Street Tunnel shutdown. service runs Flatbush - 241, but there are still trains running South Ferry - Dyre after 5am, so from about 5-7am there may be two different services running N/B from Chambers St to E 180 St. Also the is running N/B as a Dyre shuttle while trains are still running to Dyre. Guess people are used to this happening during the "transitional service period". MTA would rather run two different trains than run the to/from Bowling Green after 4am (like they used to do in 2011)
  11. Another option would be to run half of the trains as trains to South Ferry to maintain the service between E 180 St and 149 St - Grand Concourse, this way the can be reduced on Lexington Avenue and there would still be the same amount of service in the Bronx. MTA did this on a Friday evening once by suspending all service from 8:30pm to 10:30pm S/B and from 10:00pm to 12:00am N/B and ran the to both 241 St - Flatbush Ave and Dyre Av - South Ferry at the same time. The resumed service when the and swapped terminals though, the just went to/from Dyre early.
  12. The has to run at 5 tph when the is replacing the as 241 St and Flatbush Av can't have 20 minute headways. The has to run local when this happens though It is either: 7.5 / 3 / 7.5 or 7.5 / 5 / 5
  13. Maybe now MTA can finally run a consistent 20 minute headway late night on the Bx15 since there can be up to 60 minute gaps after 4am some days
  14. The Bx30 would also have to run on Fordham Road (and would have to swap with the Bx16 past Conner Street) for the 60/61/62 to be completely closed door
  15. The alternative is to cut the to 12 minute headways and run the local to keep the running normally during GOs. They did this when the Clark Street Tunnels were closed. One weekend the was cut back to a Pelham shuttle at 125th and the and went local to Brooklyn.
