  1. Your name is off the list completely even though,you never told them directly to restore your name on the list?
  2. You will think the amount of tickets they give out already,it'll cover the operation cost at the end of the day....it's a win-win situation for the TA
  3. I highly doubt B/O going to ask the kids where they're going,mind you,90% of the B/O let them on the bus without the student metro anyway.Only time B/O question them is when they dont have their student Metro card...
  4. Ok,but i dont mind having people transferring from the S78 to whatever bus they need to get to travel south of New Drop...Under your Proposal I and other riders have to take two buses just to reach Tottenville from New Drop(include the 78 ride)I wont mind having a bus travel between New Drop and Tottenville....
  5. You could send the 78 to Hugenot and the S77 to Tottenville and beyond....I can deal with that.Riders will make one transfer from one bus to another.
  6. How bad is the S78,reliability wise?So,with your service adjustment to the 78,I have to transfer at lease two buses just to travel between Tottenville and New Drop?You could at lease create a direct route that run between Bricktown Mall and New Drop.Passenger dont have time to transfer from bus to bus to bus along Hylan....Since you want to shorten the 78,why not have it run to Richmond AV? This my three proposal ideas for the 78 route: 1.S78 terminated at Richmond AV,riders will transfer to the S59 for service south along Hylan in which it'll be extended to Bricktown Mall . 2.S73 extended past Tottenville train STA to Richmond AV....so riders will have a direct transfer with the 78.(I rather do this proposal than the other two) 3.S72 could run between New Drop and Bricktown Mall,instead Hugunot.....S78 will terminated at New Drop IMO,I like the current 78 service,it does it job by covering all the areas in one shout.There's no need to change it at all.It might look good on paper,but in reality it wont work out.
  7. I heard from some people,the Q114 made the Q111 unreliable during the midday....I dont know how its like during the rush hour.
  8. Ill agree!MTA did the exact samething to BM-1,BM-2,BM-3,BM-4,BM-5 two years ago....They cut alot of runs on these routes.When they came into play,they adding runs and now they're taking away,it's crazy.
  9. I really dont have issues with the other LTD routes...it just the Q114 I have issues with,that's all....most of the bus stops are wayyy too close to each other.
  10. That what I meant...you dont have to get smart with me,alright?People make mistakes. Buses That Ive been seeing doing this be sitting at ETC for a good while,so they dont pull out late or DH to SI late,so they have time to start from Annadale road,since it's less then 10 min away from ETC....and I didnt say you deny the dispatchers,you're reading too much into my post.
  11. I didnt say it was ok for this driver to pull this stunt,it was just a observer I've made...anyway I doubt this driver gotten an write up for this since he was doing this all week in the front of the dispatcher. Couple times Ive been at ETC,sometime I see X17A start their run at that location and I know for a fact there isnt any selected trips start there,except for the X17J .All 17A suppose depart huguenot AV....so yea,it's the Dispatchers having a role in the decision making.
  12. I know that,that what we're discussion about...im not talking about buses having DH trip...where in my last post i talk about that?? There's was one driver at ETC,who was chilling in the dispatcher office till 9am,where he should've started his run at 8:50,so it could happen...come to find out this driver was late every day that week.
  13. Q114 have too many stops for a LTD route.imo
  14. Maybe dispatcher told the driver to DH over there for whatever reason,that didnt occur to you?You dont know the situation why MTA do things like that...you should talk to the dispatchers over at WBP ask why buses arent showing up at your stop.Q54 do the samething at WBP when they're late.There are some dispatchers do stuff doesnt make sense to the riders public,it's not always the drivers not doing their job and acting funny with the ''Not in service'' sign.
  15. What's yall opinion about the Q114?they really need to go back to the drawing board and fix this route.
  16. I know that,he already said it in the post....In his original post he assuming I didnt know the 89 was a rush hour bus,in which I knew...My post was just asking why it doesnt run midday and he answer the question.... I kinda figure thats how the 89 ridership is during the AM and PM rush hour.(reverse peak detection)
  17. I wasnt talking to you,I was talking to the other guy....I wasnt even talking about S40 bus,im just talking about ''Not in service'' buses in general(that what BM5-woodhaven is referring to I guess)
  18. I know the 89 doesn't run outside of rush hour,I was just asking whats the reason being.I know there was discussion on here in the past wanted the 89 to run outside of rush hour.
  19. How come the S89 doesn't run during the midday yet??ridership doesn't justify it?
  20. B84 need to expand their hours and gain ridership,the only way for that happen if the route go past New lots AV STA.Right now B84 is like a school run for kids over at the school in Spring Creek.
  21. I already know that...I like I said before Buses run late and have whatever issues.... People need to stop assuming when they see a bus that isnt in service ,they suppose to be running on their assign run at that moment of time.
  22. So,you dont wont drivers to put Not in Service sign on their buses??MTA not going to tell non regular driver to pick up S40 customers going towards the ferry....this situation will make the driver late to do his regular assign run,it just going to be a hot mess....however I can see this working out for buses that are deadheading back to the depot.The only issue with this,the driver will sacrifice part of their lunch break.
