  1. I talk to random women out of boredom if I am interested enough I'd ask for her number OR trick her into giving me her number by having her call my phone. If I wanna be an asshat I would say I can't find my phone can you call it? :lol::D:P They fall for it every time LOL. Or I'd manipulate the situation to create laughs based on the environment or get witty for kicks sometimes I'd complement her in a deliberate way like "your too attractive for diet stay off diet soda" Or "bitch get off the diet eating only goes to your right places" Or "you don't need to wear too many layers you don't need to get any hotter than you already are". :D

     

    Quite an imagination you have there, sir. :rolleyes:

  2. Well the Bronx has that set up and its express buses do just fine, so I don't know if I agree with that...

     

    The buses (except the Bx15) use different bridges. The Bx15 and other local routes that go from the Bronx to Manhattan, they do not go south of 125th Street (and 125th is far from the heart of the city, which is served by express buses). Most express bus riders want to head to the core of Manhattan. With Queens and Brooklyn, the local buses wouldn't have much of a choice but to operate in the core of Manhattan in a similar route as the express buses. Now with Queens, they have the Q32 (which runs underneath the (7) line) and goes to Penn Station. I don't really see many people using more Queens-Manhattan routes seeing that they only have access to 59th Street (which the (N)(Q)(R) also serves underneath) or 125th Street with the bridges available. The Q32, Q60 and Q101 are fairly empty so an extra bus route or two would be pointless. The M60 mainly carries because of LGA Airport of course.

  3. It isn't as easy as you think it is... What I find funny is that there some neighborhoods in the Bronx that aren't as accessible to Manhattan yet the service that is provided makes Manhattan much more accessible. Take an area like Throggs Neck for example... The fact that the Bronx is close to Manhattan is a good point, but I still wonder why the other boroughs aren't more accessible to Manhattan the way the Bronx is. Distance is one thing, but with good transportation, the other boroughs could easily be just as accessible....

     

    The problem with that is, if more local buses went from Queens/Brooklyn, they'd all end up using the same bridges to get to the same places as the express bus would. That would defeat one of the major purposes of an express bus. Many people would ask "Why am I paying $5.50 to go where every $2.25 bus is going?". There's also an accessibility issue with most train stations. Disabled passengers are most prevalent on Bronx buses (not so much on the subway) because most subway stations lack the accessibility they need. There's no accessible stations from Pelham Bay to 125th Street on the (6) train for example... Which crowds the Bx4 bus which operates beneath the elevated portion of the (6).

  4. Because people ride these buses maybe? I don't know.

    Well think about it...

    Do you want to take the (6) from Pelham Bay Park to Grand Central, the (S) to Times Square, the (1) to Inwood... Or just take a Bx12 bus?

    Buses connect neighborhoods in places where trains cannot in NYC. How do you expect to get to Manhattan (above 155th Street) via train? A lot of the Bronx is alongside Manhattan, unlike Queens/Brooklyn. There are several bridges between the Bronx and Manhattan. The most northern train that goes into the Bronx from Manhattan is the (D) (155th Street). The (1) is extremely hard to get to for most Bronxites (due to it being so far out west) as well.

    A lot of the Bronx is alongside Manhattan. Queens and Brooklyn aren't as easily accessible to Manhattan, which is why there's a subway system. I think that's pretty easy to tell on map... Just saying.


  5. I've never been so disappointed with the transit fan community in my entire life.

    People are actually going to kick and scream over a bus TRANSFER?

    Last time I've checked, the MTA has purchased these vehicles.. Not us.

    Don't like it, ride another bus. Take a cab. Take the train. WALK!

     

    At the end of the day, the point of transportation is to help you get from point A to point B faster. If you're so worried about WHAT'S getting you to point B each time, your destination(s) must not be that important.. I'm just saying!

    Anyways 'R32 3838', they're both buses.

  7. Beats me but quite frankly I would not want a local bus coming to Country Club from an area like Parkchester. I mean here in Riverdale, it's bad enough we got the Bx10 from Norwood in the Bronx coming up to Riverdale, NY... <_< I would prefer to have the Bx10s all go to 231st in the Bronx and back to Riverdale, NY.

     

    Oh shut your stuck-up trap already, Riverdale is IN THE DAMN BRONX... BRONX, NEW YORK. What goes there? BRONX BUSES. Bx1. Bx7. Bx9. Bx10. BxM routes... What does these buses have in common? They all go to Riverdale, AND they are all BRONX routes... What does that tell you? You're in the boogie down with your pretentious a$$.

  8. Penn Station, 'nuff said.

     

    There's actually a lot of programs for these people that they are not aware of. There's quite a few programs to help them get back on their own 2 feet and to feed them, but some are either uninformed or have no will power to enroll themselves into the programs. Also, there's many other places they can go to, why ON the train, at rush hour? Too many homeless people are taking the easier way out by begging for money instead of signing up for programs.

     

    Then again, too many people take the easy way out, which is why we're screwed as a nation.


  9. Nice pics. I knew that Orion was a photoshop just because only 500-512 had a black window trim....

    Hahaha yeah I was pulling crap from my...

    Heh... thought so. I was going to post something, but the logo is too small, the font for the numbers is wrong, and the stripe color is inconsistent.

     

    And on top of that, whitebacked Surface Orion Vs were actually in the majority.

     

    Good shop though -- it did almost fool me.

    Thanks, do you have any idea what the Queens Surface font really is?

     

    Also the stripes weren't too consistent back in the days.. Replacement panels and such.. This was actually 9910 photoshopped, which also has a discolored stripe.

     

    I was only bothered since some people blocked me, and I've also lost some friends, over a bus photo. :)


  10. Thanks guys! I wish I had used the camera more, prior to the MTA Bus Company takeover.

     

    By the way, the QBx1 photo was a complete photoshop. Looks like I'm not too bad at it! :(

     

    EDIT: I find it funny how many people are talking behind my back over this photo... Hilarious!


  11. 567 on the QBx1

    1000057iii.jpg

    This is my only shot I have taken before MTA Bus Company has taken over the private bus companies of Queens. This is 567 on the QBx1.

     

    EDIT: It's actually the only whitebacked Queens Surface bus I've seen. My guess is it was in the middle of being taken over by MTA Bus Company, judging by the time I caught this bus.

     

    The rest of these shots are from the bus roadeo on the last time I've made it to one. Enjoy!

  12. Once I was at 44th and 1st and there was an M15 SBS stopped at a red light, so I quickly got a ticket and tapped on the front door, but he refused to let me on. I tapped on it harder and he just looked straight ahead and ignored me. I took my phone out, went in front of the bus, and snapped a picture of the driver, except when I went back to the curb and he took off I hit the erase button instead of save. :mad:

     

    From what I've seen, a lot of SBS drivers act as if they're operating a subway train, in the sense that they'll start trying to close the door when there's clearly still people trying to board and they'll shoot off once the doors close, even if there's still people at the stop. They'll also never wait for you if you're in the middle of getting a ticket and they have a green light.

     

    People like you make me sick, get a life. PLEASE get a life. Get a freaking life.

     

    This is SBS, a freaking express, limited, whatever you call it. You missed the bus, stop wasting time for being a sore loser you filthy piece of fecal matter. You missed a M15, too bad, wait for another. The bus runs like water. So what if he was at a red light. Don't like it? Take your moronic sorry a$$ to a damn taxi and leave transit alone. You are one of the millions of idiots who wonders why the buses and trains are late/delayed, and it's because of people like you who think the bus and train should wait for every last person to come running from the turnstile or running down from the block.

     

    Are you blind, stupid, or ****ed, you blind stupid ****? :mad::mad::mad::mad:
