  1. He's not here to have any honest discourse & all jokes aside, AFAIC, he's spamming the forums with his bullshit..... It's the same M.O. with this guy - pop up every so often & incoherently spew a bunch of (seemingly) relevant crap, respond with even more incoherent shit (if he even responds at all) to anyone replying with some semblance of having a cogent thought & an original brain cell in their heads to his posts, then rides the f*** on out... Rinse, wash, repeat. He's been a joke. The Honchkrow dude got the message & kicked rocks, too bad this MF-er doesn't follow suit.... It'd be one thing if this NY1635 jester was making an unpopular opinion on a particular subject, but that aint even the case.... Saying stupid shit for the sake of saying shit & then slip-sliding & slithering away like the Penguin off on some goofy shit....
  2. Yep.... Along with Nassau Coliseum, Belmont Park, Melville P&R (along the LIE service rd north, just east of 110), Bethpage State Park parking lot, and Port Washington (North Hempstead beach park parking lot).....
  3. Yeah, likely the case.... Sucks, but it makes sense. This is what volatility & misdirected anger yields....
  4. It won't; he's too far down the rabbit hole.... Too much of a rebellious, adversarial, retaliatory disposition when it comes to the MTA & that's what & how he "operates" on.... His name rings mud in the court of public opinion & he has no one else to blame but his self... Not this self-righteous, sanctimonious, fallacious bullshit he wants to come on here spewing, about on how the reason he got deep-sixed being due to making very powerful people look stupid..... Who believes this?? This is what conniving con men have to resort to, in their feeble attempts to try to save face..... Are you referring to this: https://www.nyctransitforums.com/topic/50109-bensonhurster-starts-ridge-to-manhattan-bus-service/ If so, that's what happened with that??? Lmao..... I understand having an entrepreneurial spirit & meaning well & all, but this is the shit I'm talking about.... Problem I have with too many people trying to start businesses is that they don't have a warrior spirit running concurrently with that entrepreneurial spirit.... Now I don't know how close you were with them, but if you were nothing more than a mere outsider, I would actually be offended that I'm the one that was expected to give some outside entity a kick & a shove to get shit up off the ground.... The nerve of some people.
  5. I get that you don't get people giving other people back-pats & attaboys for doing their jobs in general, but I was just talking about the mere word itself having a negative connotation.... Hustle/hustler is another term I'd put into that category..... A better way to convey it (I guess), is that it's stigmatized..... So, throw rocks & hide your hands basically.... We know you're crooked, we want your services - but we also think you're in need of "straightening" out Some would argue that those of us on these transit forums would fall anywhere between that second & that third category..... Quite honestly, I wouldn't throw em in either category... They're not experts, they're not pretending to be, and they sure as shit couldn't care less about enthusiastically exuding any interest for transit..... The old guard/good ole boy mentality is completely detached from anything "transit"....
  6. I'll take it a little further - if that was a part of the job description, I wouldn't sign up for it..... Transporting thousands of perpetually disgruntled civilians back & forth from work/school/recreation per day, in this city, is draining/taxing enough...... As far as the initial sentiment, given that stipulation, I suppose - but I'm looking at from the angle of *it isn't the MTA's problem if the NYPD's ill-prepared or ill-equipped for some mission*....
  7. IDK, while I get that anyone simply working under a contract is a contractor, the word Contractor in & of itself, to me, always had this nefarious connotation to it.... I'm bringing that up because whenever I see someone mention a corrupt contractor, it reads as a double negative.... Like, you seldom, if ever, hear about contractors in a positive light.... As for the totality of that comment, I'd say the MTA facilitating "corrupt contractors" would be more accurate..... If you knew going in that they're corrupt, then why the f*** are you hiring them for.... Delusions of grandeur truly runs rampant with this agency.
  8. Yeah, that - But it's also a safety issue from the standpoint of (the potential for) having protesters hurl shit at the bus, shoot up the bus, firebomb it, or god knows what else..... No thanks.
  9. That QMT106 I see carrying air for several reasons (too few trips, catchment area too narrow, low demand for service of the sort, long runtime/poor routing choice, among other things)..... Who wants to sit on a bus moving sluggishly (on the quote-unquote nonstop portion of the thing) along the Clearview up to the LIE, clear along the LIE from the Clearview to the BQE, and along the BQE, enroute to the Williamsburg Bridge..... Something like that would rival that proposed scrapped BxM17.... The highway layout/network doesn't help, but all things considered, Levittown is proximate enough to the Babylon line or the main line.... You could have a bus solely encircling (or otherwise extensively/wholly serving) Levittown & it still wouldn't catch on..... It's part of the reason they have those peak Wantagh expresses on the LIRR (Penn → only stopping at Bellmore, Merrick, and Wantagh.... NO Jamaica !!)
  10. Quite sure the majority (if not literally all) of those cheering that Flatbush op' for not moving that bus, was from a supportive fist-pumping moralistic or political standpoint..... IDGAF about any of that..... It's not my job.
  11. ...to maintain the schedule. To the higher-ups, a b/o running hot is a cardinal sin. You really think they're capable of accurately revamping schedules for all these routes to reflect the decreased amt. of traffic? I sure as f*** don't It's probably better they do a copy/paste job, partly b/c of fluctuating (or worse, an unexpected spike) in traffic in certain areas over others.... Last thing we need, for example, is to have SBS B46's running from Dekalb to KP in half an hour..... Can't be all about safety safety safety & at the same time, expect drivers to maintain something like that.... Of course, all of this means much of nothing for the drivers that DGAF about being a stickler about the schedule anyway..... Yeah, people are bolting for alternatives, largely due to the waning quality of service.... The MTA's (indirectly) blaming typical NYC traffic; by proposing what's being proposed, they're essentially saying it without saying it..... That sort of thing.
  12. Those rickety things would break down halfway to Barclays!
  13. Could've swore the TWU fought (as in, filed a lawsuit) against commandeering MTA buses, back during that Occupy Wall Street demonstration..... In any case, although I could give a damn about any of these protesters, simply put - it's not a city bus driver's place to do the work of a police officer.... Unions protect workers against shit like this.... Had the b/o transported those rioters that got apprehended & got into some accident or something, the NYPD would not be liable..... I mean honestly, NYPD would most certainly feel some type of way if we had vigilante b/o's interfering in any pursuit of some offender of some crime..... I would even argue that the b/o's life would've been further put in danger by transporting those protesters.... I put nothing past NOBODY. Bus op' did the right thing AFAIC......
  14. My personal favorite (question) was the one about social distancing when more people start taking buses again.... Most of the buses I've been taking since this thing popped off have been SRO.... So in terms of social distancing, what the hell would improve in that regard, when more people start riding buses!?!?? The 2 questions about bus stops were pretty good too... I have been definitely seeing more homeless people staking out at bus shelters & for the stops that don't have shelters, they aren't anymore cleaner (as if the MTA is out there disinfecting the actual poles & cleaning up the trash blowing around, or situated at the stops themselves - DSNY be damned!) Can't make this stuff up.
  15. ....Yet a working professional like @QM1to6Ave has to show ID. SMFH.
  16. Anyway, just for shits & giggles, I'll answer that survey: (hopefully the spoiler tag works)
  17. ......... ......... I don't see the problem here.... You're acting like the dude copied & pasted it off a website or something......
  18. Lol..... If that were the case, you'd have asked if they're proposing the thing run through the Navy Yard, but alright....
  19. That's exactly the point of that... It's simple advertising. ...and what would that have to do with the QT1 being 24/7 & having to be detoured? This just sounds like you're backtracking.
  20. The QT1 isn't proposed to go through the Navy Yard..... Jamaica Center (bus terminal) is just another day in the neighborhood for those folks.... Hell, even I'm used to the madness & I'm a Brooklynite.... Anyway, what I'm saying is that the isn't that much faster than the enough to where a SE Queens patron would bother taking the QT7 to the .... A bus ride to Jamaica Ctr. would be faster than anything running along Linden Blvd, etc..... Being that they're introducing these subway dash routes, there's just no way a ride on that QT7 would rival the QT40 if it's just about getting to a(ny) subway.... Any experimental belief contrary to that, the MTA's going to lose out on..... If it's about making the QT7 more attractive for SE Queens folks, it's going to have to serve more of Brooklyn & not just Gateway Mall.... Short of Brooklyn, Rockaway Blvd won't nearly be enough.... That's the map I've been using all along (I've even extracted it & saved it as a .png file on the desktop) as a reference.... I can't be bothered with the remix map.....
  21. The proposed QT47 terminal is where the current Q10 short turns end.... There's a hotel, a homeless shelter, and some kind of food catering service over there... That stop actually gets decent usage & it's not primarily DSNY workers.... For what you're saying at the end there, well the question I'd have for any SE Queens patron willing/preferring to do that (outside of specifically getting to somewhere in Brooklyn on the ) is, for what purpose..... Rockaway Blvd isn't exactly empty (which is actually a problem I have with that station; the platform is too narrow), the isn't that much faster than the if it's about getting to Lower Manhattan, sure as hell can't be about safety, the reliability of the (vs. that of the or the /)? IDK.... Which is why I'd ask for what reason would they want to make that sacrifice.... Even if you have people that are sick of having to deal with Jamaica as a pipeline, I don't see any significant amt. of people currently taking buses to Jamaica (that aren't specifically trying to get to some establishment in Jamaica) swinging way out to Ozone Park for the subway.... I hate to put it like this, but this is where sucking it up beats the alternative they'd try to push (if infact that's part of what's trying to be accomplished with the QT7)....
  22. Not that I see any of it happening, but theoretically, the areas that should be targeted for express bus service aren't the areas that already have LIRR service..... And good luck having buses serve GCT and Wall Street - MTA express buses/network can't even do that efficiently! Yeah, I bet.... You could've skipped the local bus commentary; I already knew where you stand on them.....
  23. You've been making several posts on here about the subway needing to being 24/7 again.... We get it... Much of nobody here disagrees with that. Bringing up what happened to this poor guy though, is not a reason to have round-the-clock service on the subway.... F*ck Sh*t happens on the subways also. Enough already. Thank you. Yeah, safe to say what's going on in the Rockaways during the overnight hours, aren't simply occurring by happenstance..... Somebody (or some group) with enough pull is saying something behind the scenes.....
  24. There were enough times I've gotten fed up waiting for the bus & hoofed it over the bridge from the Hub... This doesn't include other times I chose to do so, because the damn thing (Bx19) was crushloaded (more often than not, I'd beat it to Lenox also)..... Too bad bus lanes along 149th won't help how sluggish the thing is along 145th,, but I suppose beggars can't be choosy......
