  1. I went to Long Beach on Mother's day to see if anyone was waiting for bus and it's hurting the Long Beach peninsula because Sunday there's no bus service for Long Beach peninsula of Atlantic Beach, Long Beach, Point Lookout. They could have cut only one weekend loop and have one loop go to Point Lookout. There were two people. One man was not aware n33 bus doesn't run on Sundays and after dairy free yogurt option nearby, one woman was waiting for loop bus and they were upset.

    School safety 101: SLOW DOWN!

    I also remember a few months ago, when I was n20G Flushing bus from Great Neck, around Sanford Av/149th St area by school, n20G bus driver who had to stopped for flashing red light school bus had to honk at motorist who cut the bus off by going oncoming traffic but only to be stop by school bus. That motorist could have caused the great accident to both school bus, NICE Bus and pedestrians walking by.

    Student Metrocard discussion thread

    Some students in NYC with Student MetroCard can't be used on Bee-Line Bus or NICE Bus. I remember one scenio I was Bee-Line 2 bus from Yonkers and 2 students with NYC StudentMetroCard didn't know Bee-Line bus can't use NYCB issue Student MetroCard, so nice LibertyLines driver let them on. I remember when I was on direct n20 bus before split on Hicksville-bound n20 bus, some student try to paid with NYCB Student MetroCard which wasn't accepted and I told her NYC Student MetroCard can't use and bus driver told her too. Also when I was on n22X Jamaica Bus ride from Hicksville, at Roosevelt Field Mall, two students who had NYC StudentMetroCard only explains to Transdev driver that they didn't know NYC student metrocard cannot be used.

    No. 2 train suspended due to reported feces in cars

    I used the bus schedule that somebody threw on NICE Bus floor. One time on n6, I found NJT Atlantic City train schedule. At Westchester County/White Plains TransCenter, I always find NICE Bus schedules. I even found NICE Bus schedule in Bee-Line Bus office in Mount Vermon along with LIRR.

    No. 2 train suspended due to reported feces in cars

    I have been on train that had feces on the first car on R46 when I was coming off NICE Bus at 179th St. I boarded first car and some passengers witness feces on R46 (F), so I covered up with scramble bus schedule because I didn't want no one want to step on it, and one of commuter contacted the T/O and T/O alerted conductor to close first car. I decided to help by staying to 47th-50th Sts that first car is closed.
  7. Maybe train's car properly can't change it?

    NICE Planned Service/Schedule Changes

    Maybe n36 bus could become Freeport-Lynbrook Community Shuttle because south shore elected officials in East Rockaway want n36 bus back.

    Why the not-in-service bus won't stop for you

    I hate NIS on both MTA and NICE Bus. I remember at Glen Clove Rd/Northern Blvd when n27 bus was running on weekend and during weekdays we waited almost 1 hour for bus because NICEBus sure likes deadhead.

    NICE Planned Service/Schedule Changes

    Also they protested n19 and weekend n27 bus. n27 bus on weekend was huge mistake, well as n36 bus.

    NICE Planned Service/Schedule Changes

    Only problem with Long Islanders, they don't read the sign. When I went to Hicksville Station for first day of service cut, no one didn't read n79 bus doesn't run on weekend.

    I found article. https://www.timesledger.com/stories/2014/16/jamaicabusdepot_tl_2014_04_18_q.html MTA buys land to redevelop aging Jamaica Bus Terminal Enlarge this image Photo by Rich Bockmann The MTA reached a milestone in its long-in-the-works plan to update the Jamaica Bus Depot. Photo by Rich Bockmann By Rich Bockmann Several properties the MTA purchased along Merrick Boulevard will someday be incorporated into an expanded bus depot once construction money is allocated. Photo by Rich Bockmann The MTA recently bought up a handful of properties adjacent to the South Jamaica bus depot, which it has been hoping to expand for years, but until the agency can come up with the needed capital funds, construction plans will sit as idle as the buses parked along Merrick Boulevard. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority paid $6.6 million earlier this month to the Hollywood, Fla.-based Rejtx LLC for four properties fronting Merrick Boulevard on the block just south of York College and Tuskegee Airmen Way as well as a fifth property at the block’s northwest corner. The acquisition of the additional 50,000 square feet brings the MTA’s footprint on the block to about 221,000 square feet and represents a long-awaited milestone in the push to redevelop the aging facility. “To alleviate a chronic shortage of bus parking and servicing facilities in Jamaica, the [New York City Transit] Department of Buses has long desired to expand the footprint of the Jamaica Bus Depot,” MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said. “Ultimately, we plan to construct a new bus depot on the site of the existing depot expanded to include the purchased properties.” Built in 1940, the 58,000-square-foot depot is one of the oldest — if not the oldest — in the MTA’s portfolio. It serves as the home to some 200 buses operating on nine lines throughout southeast Queens, but it is too small for the task and many of the vehicles sit idle along Merrick Boulevard, especially at night and on weekends. City Councilman I. Daneek Miller (D-St. Albans), who served as head of the Queens bus drivers union before he was elected to office last year, said the MTA has been eyeing the properties for the last three years, but plans to renovate the depot go back much further. “I went to work in the Queens division in 1989, and they probably had it in the capital plan back then,” he said. In its most recent version of the capital plan, the agency last year scaled back the renovation to include only pre-construction work, as funding is not available to put shovels in the ground. In the meantime, South Jamaica residents will have to continue to put up with buses parking on the street. Community Board 12 District Manager Yvonne Reddick said the vehicles are a nuisance to residents of a nearby senior center and prevent street sweepers from cleaning the street. “As a matter of fact, just a couple of weeks ago I had to call the MTA about the buses so the mechanical broom could get by and clean,” she said. “I’m happy to hear they purchased property, but I’m disappointed they don’t have money to start constructi­on.” Photo by Rich Bockmann Several properties the MTA purchased along Merrick Boulevard will someday be incorporated into an expanded bus depot once construction money is allocated.

    SI Express Bus Plan Out!

    Also there's no drop off on 6th Av between Worth St & Houston Sts and 14th & 23rd Sts. I don't think there's room for SI express buses to be pick up along 5th Av. Also there's no pickup at 59th St/6th Av, 50th St/6th Av and no pickup on 7th Av between 57th & 50th Sts, well as Park Av South and 14th St and Broadway between Houston and Worst Sts. I seen lots of people getting on bus on Broadway at Houston Sts. SI express Buses riders on MTA and Academy X23/X24 bus will be confusing. I also think SiM3 will be mistaken for BM3 or BxM3.
  15. I didn't say NICE's fault. I stated I give him direction from Carle Place to Westbury base on my n22 bus ride experience. Plus charter bus wasn't Long Island based. He was based out of Kingston, NY.
