    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    It has happened a few times before (some midday GOs), last time was in 2009 (middays and evenings) http://www.subchat.com/readflat.asp?Id=737756&p=1 Outside of Yankees/Barclays/Soccer specials, July 2001 Some specials have been signed and announced as .

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Just like how other SBS routes have deactivated machines late nights (like the Bx12 and Bx41) "SBS not running use the local"
  5. It has one stop at South 11th Avenue & Sandford Boulevard in Mt Vernon, then runs on Mundy Lane for one block (north side of Mundy Lane is in Mt Vernon). Bx16 only runs in Westchester going going S/B only, going N/B it is completely in the Bronx.

    Select Bus Service Planning

    The Bx15 local should be extended to 138 St when the Bx15 LTD gets converted to the Bx15 SBS in order to: 1. Give local bus riders another subway alternative instead of just 149 St 2. In order to keep the two local bus stops on Willis Avenue from being eliminated
  7. Also the 45 in Pelham Bay Park and the 54 on Mundy Lane.
  8. BxM3 running into Yonkers helps to bring additional riders to the route and to cut down on deadheads. People on Riverdale Avenue are closer to the BxM1/2/18 than Metro North, same thing with South Broadway and the BxM3. Most people from Yonkers use the 1/2/4 to the subway instead of the BxM1/2/3/18.
  9. Place advertisements for the Riverdale meetings in Getty Square (and the Yonkers MNR station) and on the buses as well so riders can see them.
  10. They should also advertise these meetings in Getty Square for BxM3 riders to/from Yonkers since they would be affected

    Bronx Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    Bx46 also serves Barretto Point Park and replaces the Pool Shuttle (Bx24 2nd version)

    The has to go local overnight anyway, so the makes more sense to be the express since it was express all night at the time. The also has a longer route in the Bronx than the with more stops. A rider to 241 St has a longer ride than a rider to Woodlawn.

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    Yes, it also shows that MTA has to cut something, though the train at 12 minute headways was still more total Lex service than the train at 20 minute headways. Would you prefer an overcrowded train running express and no train at all? The was suffering because of the , not the . The is suffering more now due to the ending early almost every night, or not running much at all.

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    Running the normally would mean the gets cut back to 12 minutes (like before when the had more priority) and the would have to run local to help the .

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6_(New_York_City_Subway_service) Someone posted this: From January 21 to October 5, 1990, late night service was extended back to Brooklyn Bridge when late night express service on the 4 was restored. But the 6 was then cut back to 125th Street for the last time when late-night express service on the 4 in Manhattan was permanently discontinued. October 6 1990 would have been the last day as the 5th was a Friday. Anyone have a 1990 map service guide or , schedules that can confirm or deny this?
