    Walker Issues causing problems on crowded buses.

    Also some family with baby in strollers are too lazy. Some people says stroller can't be unfolded. Sometimes I see tourists try to get on a bus with baby inside until bus driver tells them to fold stroller. All transit bus company around the world is same policy. I also seen some person with wheelchair walking his wheelchair up the ramp sometimes.

    Tourists forcing Riders to Miss their Bus Connections

    ALso remember even horse-drawn carriage on 59th St, causing delays on buses too. NYCDOT proposed to moved horse-drawn carriage inside Central Park, just 100 feet away from 59th St, but horse-carriage drivers are stubborn. Once I even caught horse-drawn carriage dropping off/picking up at authorized M5/M7/Big Bus Tour stop. It seems like only NY CitySight and Big Bus Tour operates. Maybe NY CitySight took over grayline operation? It not just tourists. Some folks who regulate visit New York sometimes walk slow too. This Saturday-Sunday during Openhouse New York weekend will be chaotic.

    How did you discover NYC Transit Forums?

    I think my first forum was Straphangers Campaign's Rider Dairies that venture me to join New York City Transit Forum, Subwaychat, then Railroad.net forum because I began to take interest in public transportation. Everyone here were kind and warm welcoming and I had great time in those forums including Forest Glen who took me to see movie at Jamaica Multiplex for remake of Taking Pelham 1-2-3. After I ventured with vegan friends, we not friend on facebook friend anymore.

    Student Metrocard discussion thread

    I remember during 9-11-01 after I was going to HSES from Mount Siani Hospital, I had Student MetroCard that good for school days only. I used one on M106 from 5th Av/98th St, then wasted at 103rd St (B)(C) station, and I was dedicate to go to school and wasted again at 96th St (1)(2)(3). After passenger told me, no train, I rushed to Riverdale Av/97th St for sardined M5 bus to 72nd St Subway Station for M57 bus. I got free transfer to M5. After school, my mom picked up and my Student MetroCard was empty when we took M31 bus.

    Student Metrocard discussion thread

    I really like to see picture of Westchester County's Bee-Line Bus StudentMetroCard and NICE Bus' Student Pass Card. I remember one time when I was on BL/W2 from Gettys Square back to 242nd St, Bee-Line Bus drivers were nice enough to let two students who weren't aware NYCBOE issued Student MetroCard can be used. Another time on weekday, when I was on NICE Bus n22X, NICE Bus drivers denies at Roosevelt Field Mall and forced them to paid $2.75.
