  1. https://mobile.twitter.com/danrivoli/status/1214930377728516101 It wasn’t a 179 🤷‍♂️
  2. I don’t understand why the G is such a high priority for CBTC
  3. Our union sucks and this won’t be addressed until they are voted out by a more “progressive” slate. The contract they just offered us (and our shitty union actually rejected) would subject all of us to home visits. But what law did you use to get those managers fired? As long as a law’s legislative purpose is contravened, its protections cannot be waived in a collective bargaining agreement.
  4. It’s in our contract that they can come to our house if we’re in the worst 30% of sick leave users. If there is some law that says they can’t please let me know. You can inbox me if you want.
  5. Nope 😂 https://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/ny-trump-second-avenue-subway-20190824-a6gbcatqh5dwzegehtaosy5sju-story.html?fbclid=IwAR0T39_RyxdbGBJqYz4pZZ889h3hhD1T73eLgGWDbnuYl91uKj94zxo5GI8
  6. lol isn’t the 2/3 at both ends of the Fulton St Transit Hub? You can get off at Park Place, walk through the E WTC terminal, and transfer to the 2/3 at Fulton St
  7. Speed limits are raised when they install CBTC. The regular system sets limits based on how close the signals are. If they’re too close the limit has to be lowered to allow enough braking distance from when you first see the yellow to the red signal. CBTC doesn’t use that many signals so a lot of the speed signs are removed. Also there are no yellows because it knows exactly where the train ahead is.
  8. Usually regular signals (not timers) that flash to red causing the stop arm to trip the train. There’s no trains in front but there could be dust on the insulated joint which makes the system THINK there’s a train on the circuit so it automatically stops the train. Other times it’s just debris that trips the train 🤷‍♂️
  9. It’s always been happening but in the emails/alerts they always called it either “stalled train” or “mechanical problem”. Go back and look, those are not happening as much now but only because they’re being more truthful about the cause of the delays now
  10. Not sure if this is the right thread to ask this but does anyone know what the latest date the MTA wants to have the be all R160 for Queens Blvd CBTC? Thanks
  11. Off the top of my head I would do 4/5 to Union Square, then the N to 86th St in Brooklyn which is also close to PS248
  12. The on-board train computer does not allow you to “add” stations, only to skip them
  13. Testing is going to begin this December on the Queens Blvd line. You don’t think testing will take 3 years, do you?
  14. This has been the rule since 2014, however since they are so disgustingly ridiculous with their discipline, a lot of people still check and supervision still has the station cleaners trying to remove people from the train. It’s supposed to be like every other stop and then the conductor is supposed to say “the next stop is Forest Hills-71st Ave on the Manhattan bound platform, stand clear of the closing doors” and the doors should be closed in 10 seconds like every other stop. Also the dispatchers don’t always tell the crew if your train has another operator in the back so until you know for sure you still have to check your train. The only time it should take longer is if it’s going to the yard but that’s not what’s being done.
  15. I find the worst delays to be after the rush hour when they’re trying to lay up everything so maybe send them to 179 an hour after the rush too
