    Bay Ridge area politicians call for split R train

    If the goes to Essex, wouldn't it be better to bring back the as a Broadway service instead of having two different colored trains? Another option is to make the run on Queens Boulevard 7 days a week in place of the weekend service. If the and have problems both using Whitehall, another option is to re extend the to replace the in Queens on weekdays since QB needs 4 services.
  2. https://transportation.westchestergov.com/images/stories/Schedules/2019sprpostereng.pdf Notables: Added trips: 1 (Sunday), 2 (weekdays), 42 (weekdays), 55 (weekdays), and 60 (weekdays and Sunday) Deleted trips: BxM4C The last two S/B trips are combined into a new trip.

    The is currently OPTO late nights unless it is extended below East 180th Street for a service change.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    The late night Bx15 short turns to/from 149 St are also former Bx55 runs, problem is after 4am nothing replaces them, so late night service is not 20 minutes all night, it can be up to 60 minutes wait at certain directions/days

    5 trains running every 20 minutes

    The was going to be local after 1am anyway, so might as well have that service go local. The was express all night, made no sense to have it run local. MTA did have the go local with the a few times while the was normal. One time the even ran overnight on the weekend as a local, meaning the ,, all were making local stops overnight.

    49th Street is a very busy station and it helps that both the and stops there, at least MTA thinks so.

    Hoyt Avenue should be kept on the signs since it still exists right by the Astoria Boulevard station.

    Bronx Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    The Bx23 can help the Q50 with the ridership to/from Target and the other stores in the shopping center it will be more than just ferry riders. Some Co Op City residents at a meeting did mention something about having a route go to the Soundview Ferry. They could wait a few years and have the Bx23 to the Ferry Point Park stop. Some rush hour Bx23 trips will still be Co Op City loop shuttles, all of the off peak trips will be extended to Ring Road in Ferry Point Park.

    Bronx Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    Extend the Bx23 to the Ferry, it is the local version of the Q50, it just won't go to Queens. The City can pay for it due to the blank check reimbursement.

    Enhanced Station Initiative

    Rawson, Lowery, and Bliss will never be removed because of the dual street signs outside of those stations. Instead of removing outdated names, another option is to have the City restore them, then they will become current. A few other once non existing station names are guaranteed to be preserved in the future because the City has already taken action to rename or co name areas near the subway stations 6 Av (L), 110 St stations (1), (2)(3), (B)(C), E 143 St (6). Restored in the future E 177 St (would be the 4th time MTA had to completely restore a station name they previously removed) Honorable mention: Continental Av (no longer on the subway map, but still in the station.) The old names on the were preserved recently (though will likely be removed from the stations in the far future). At one point MTA stopped removing historic names due to complaints. Lincoln and Fisk on the are in danger of being removed next since they weren't recently renovated. Unless they want to restore Lincoln and Fisk via the City Council. https://nypost.com/2012/10/07/subway-stations-retain-signs-listing-places-and-streets-that-no-longer-exist/
  13. Bx12 SBS is considered a separate route from the Bx12 LCL.

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    Service Cuts

    The evening trains will just be sent to 96th Street instead of 71st Avenue after 8:30pm weekdays until 2020 when the tunnel reopens
  17. The blank check means that MTA wouldn't be saving anything by cutting MTA Bus, though NYC would save money

    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"
  22. http://transportatio...vice change.pdf Some Highlights: Weekday: W1 gets a service boost between 4-8pm Weekend: Last 3 northbound W20 buses will skip Cross County (20X replaces 20) Sunday: W40 service will no longer service Westchester Community College W13 gets summer Sunday service to Rye (like the W76 did)
  23. 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
  25. Also the 45 in Pelham Bay Park and the 54 on Mundy Lane.
