  1. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Just after 6:00. I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
  2. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Interesting ride today: I boarded an X30 at 57th and 7 Avenue just after 4:00. All seemed good until we reached 42nd and 8 Ave. Once we left the stop, the B/O announced that we would be traveling through Brooklyn as the Lincoln Tunnel was closed. We crawled down West St since there was heavy traffic. Just when it couldn’t get any worse, the BQE had bumper to bumper traffic to the extent where people stepped outside their vehicles. Even the HOV lane was backed up. I saw all the “via NJ” express routes along the way. When we finally got into SI, we came off the expressway just past Richmond Rd, turned down Clove Rd, and made a right on Victory. The B/O basically drove the AM route. It turns out, a bus caught fire near the Licoln Tunnel on the New Jersey end.

    Yes, I was referring to the 6:18 trip. And yes, the short turns are out of Yukon too. The run to Post/Jewett was still covered, it was just a few minutes late.
  4. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Last week, one of the dispatchers made an interesting decision with the S44/S94. My friend does the 5:13 and 6:18 PM S44 trips to Post and Jewett Ave from the ferry. When we get ready to start our trip, the dispatcher walks over to our bus and has my friend become an S94 as the bus that normally does that trip was running late. It made sense as the 6:18 is his last trip.

    You sure it wasn’t working the B61 or B67?

    But at the same time, R160’s are more efficient with busier routes such as the and as they have more doors and cars that passengers can go into.
  8. R62A on the 4 train

    There was a G.O. where the was split at 125 St. One section ran between Woodlawn and 125th, the other between 125th and Brooklyn. As the latter section had no direct yard access, it used some R62A’s. I remember that day too as I rode one myself.
  9. SI Bus Study sort of up on MTA website

    It was mostly mixed opinions as some agreed with the Downtown or Midtown only proposal while others said that they prefer keeping some routes the same, just with fewer stops.
  10. SI Bus Study sort of up on MTA website

    I went to the meeting as well. Just like you pointed out, many people were unhappy with the proposal to remove express bus service from the WFC and I agree with them. Even though I don’t work there, I’ve ridden the X7 and X9 around that area numerous times and it gets more than enough people to warrant express bus service. Some also didn’t agree with removing some stops which I somewhat understand, but I do feel that some are just too close.

    Does anyone have a link to the current google bus roster? I think it’d be a good idea to keep one in this thread as it relates to bus moves.
  12. Worst Commute of the Week

    I’ll start it off: True story that happened yesterday: As I was going home from work tired and hungry, there was no trains running in Queens and I had just missed the LIRR, so I decided to take the Q56 as there was no Q24 nearby. One shows up nearly packed to the brim, so I passed it up and luckily, there was another behind it. That bus must have been put in by a dispatcher since it started where I was waiting (by Jamaica Av and Sutphin Blvd). I’m thinking that this ride is smooth sailing until we hit traffic just before Lefferts Blvd. From that point on, the ride was a total drag.... The only good thing was that my bus went NIS for most of the trip. I’m sure some will have stories much worse than mine, but I just wanted vent.

    I must say, I actually like riding the when it’s local in Manhattan. It moves pretty fast.
  14. Planned Subway Service Changes

    Some updates for the last weekend of October: No service between Dyre and E 180 St Jamaica Center/179 St bound service runs local in Queens Split service at Broadway Junction No service between Brighton Beach and Coney Island
  15. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    I finally rode an XN40. I must say, they ride very good.
