  1. Technically they could have rebuilt some of the weaker parts of the line and to your point spaced the stations out. The Second ave EL was the stronger of the two and for the most could carry the weight of subway cars above 8th street. South of that point the line was abit weaker. Plus the Queens connection was the one to keep. I could see it making a SAS build abit more difficult but it was done with the 6th and Fulton just fine. But back to the Third it died a slow death the closing of the yard access and the City Hall branch were the death nails. NYCTA also didnt want to spend the money the upgrade signaling just the newer middle trackage had signal blocks the local were manual and by the eye. They trained riders to do without in the years leading to closure the line ran 6am-6pm below 149th street on weekdays only with now service on weekends. All planned.
  2. Gotcha didn't anything on it which is why I asked here. Which thread?
  3. What's everyones thoughts on the new B99 service starting tonight?
  4. So they blamed the wrong train class and still found something wrong?
  5. I agree ☝️I guess the question is how do we debark the Titanic itself? Whenever diving into who's in charge and making the call's ultimately can never seem to get a direct answer but it seems all roads lead to Albany are we too focused on the Byford's and Di Basio's when our public officials in Albany are the ones need to get in the game?
  6. Good point. Considering how important these transit systems are to the Economics all over the country you'd think there be sometype of lower interest or even forgiveness.
  7. Here's the updated budget. So there saying $16.3B in and $16.6 out. Not saying there not padding some other books somewhere else. But just using this as the guide I take it the extra funding would come in Fiscal 2021 or 22 correct? @Via Garibaldi 8
  8. Gotcha I see so about $7Bn ear marked for Buses. Was this funding approved it seems like it's pending? There capital cost's definitely out-of-control I agree but also seems like a lot of their budget goes to Payroll,Pensions and health as well more then non labor looking at this chart. looking to see if I can find something more updated.
  9. Isn’t the MTA in the process of restructuring the entire organization?
  10. $52.5B for the MTA or NYCT? How much of that is earmarked for the Bus Network? Is there something I can take a look at? Is this broken down in like monthly a report?
  11. How do you feel about re-organization do you think that’s a move in the right direction?
  12. This is current Fordham Plaza layout correct? Might be a-few slots open for the Q44. Maybe the BX17 and 34 move to 189th? The Q44 is taking Third Ave in. The BX52 was Fordham -LGA via the Hub tho correct?
  13. Understood. And here lies the seed No process is ever correct if you don't trust in the process. Public trust is everything That should be more of the focus double down.
  14. Indeed with that said. Should there be a major push for Public leaders to go above the MTA to the actual boss? If the MTA is crying broke Let's get a few extra dollars into their hands with No excuses now to get it done correctly.
  15. Would the Q50 be able to handle the load? Headways,Non-articulate's? IMO Fordham would get decent ridership. Plus thats quite a route overlap with both routes. What's you angle the Q44 extension affects reliability?
