Smith Haven: Fixed to use Burr, but due to space constraints I'll have to show the paths in a simplified way on Burr, or else it'll become a spaghetti mess with all the turns and the number of routes. It won't be perfect, but it'll be readable. I can revisit it when I improve my software.
7D: Fixed the turns onto and off Montauk Hwy. That Bonney Dr jog might have been a temporary construction reroute judging from pics on StreetView.
Stony Brook: The S60 and S69 have been moved.
S71: Thanks, the schedule map suggested that but it just didn't seem right.
Riverhead: Yes, please let me know. I plan on looking at this area in detail in the next major version.
10D/10E: 10E fixed to not run on Saturday (might not show up right away, but it's fixed locally)
S62: Added the 5A parallel routing as a 'limited' segment. (I usually don't show trips that are only once a day)
Hauppauge: I will do a batch update on all routes through here 'soon'. (the S62 and S54 are also incorrect here)
I've fixed the Smith Haven Mall routes, the S66 at SCCC, the Coram Plaza routing (I think), and the S61/63/54/40 routings at Patchogue. Thanks again!
For the 7D, can you clarify this? The schedule lists Mastic Rd and Montauk Hwy as a timepoint and the map on the schedule sure looks like it uses Mastic Rd. What route does it take instead of Mastic Rd?
For Stony Brook, I updated the 3D and the S71. Can you confirm that I got those right before I change the others on the below link? (or does it use the other loop on John Toll? Or am I completely wrong?)
Thank you for your help,
Thank you so much. I will start going through these and fixing them. I had a feeling I got the SUNY-SB routings wrong.
No idea, but here's an unofficial one I'm working on (not done yet, still working out some kinks etc): LI Transit map (Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE), Huntington Area Rapid Transit (HART), Suffolk Transit and Long Beach buses, and LIRR trains (Monday-Friday) Saturday service: LI Transit map (Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE), Huntington Area Rapid Transit (HART), Suffolk Transit and Long Beach buses, and LIRR trains (Saturday) Sunday service: LI Transit map (Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE), Huntington Area Rapid Transit (HART), Suffolk Transit and Long Beach buses, and LIRR trains (Sunday) PM me if you notice any errors and I'll fix in the next release. (I already know the 22L isn't on there yet; it will be added) -Doug
I'd recommend staying on a NJT train all the way to NY Penn Station. Little bit more expensive ($15) but way easier and probably much faster. Buy before boarding! You'll end up on one side of Penn. Follow signs to the LIRR concourse. Use this link to find LIRR schedules: http://lirr42.mta.info/index.asp Read any notices that pop up (if any). I believe they are doing track work near Smithtown and a couple trains are replaced by buses. The page will list any transfers you need to do. If you travel outside of rush hour, odds are very good you will have to change trains somewhere (Jamaica, Hicksville, or Huntington). Pay attention to onboard announcements, especially if you have to change at Jamaica (sometimes you have to change trains by walking through an intermediate train that has doors on both sides open). Buy before boarding! You will get a paper ticket to show on the train. Round trip fares are available. Buy from one of the ticket windows so they can confirm transfer/fare info for you. Avoid the crush of people running for the train when it's posted by waiting in one of the less-congested concourses (if you can see the ticket windows, you're standing in the wrong place). Oh, and watch the gap between the train and the platform, eh? Enjoy! -Doug
Hi Andy, I have some good news for you: Someone with slightly* more experience making transit maps already did one for Mercer County, including Trenton: http://www.gmtma.org/transitmap.htm I plan on adding links on the map to maps like this, as well as surrounding maps not in the area I intend on covering. * ok, waaaay more experience -Doug
Wanted to introduce myself and announce a web site I'm working on, my first related to transit stuff (I used to/still do a NY Roads site): http://www.njbusmap.com Comments/feedback/corrections are always welcome!!!!! I hope someone finds it useful, since NJ Transit never made one. While I'm at it, I'll also give kudos to the guys at http://www.jerseymap.org, who blazed the trail before me. There's probably many more ones out there in areas of the state I haven't covered yet, so if you know of any, please let me know so I can link to them! thanks- Doug
