  1. The ferries are getting OMNY Al Putre mentioned it on the SAS podcast
  2. Something like that would be great afew other places could use the connection. Take a listen when you get a second they Discuss OMNY in this talk. If you haven’t heard it already. https://blubrry.com/secondavesagas/44858124/episode-5-omny-with-mtas-al-putre
  3. Right on! Yeah something like I can see working. Maybe even the transfer validation (Pink) points for things like the Atlantic ticket. Cool thing with London it's a bit easier there with the zones we'd have to figure that out but the tech is there.
  4. How does this affect the LAMTA and CTA with there CRRC rolling stock?
  5. Bat signal received I have the direct ear of 3 State senators and a personal connect to Carl Hastings. @Union Tpke Let me know what your plan forward is. DM me!
  6. I was up there as well got a chance to speak to Andy King and a few other officials before they sat with the MTA people came out!!! Byford stayed around for quite sometime after the event even ABC 7 came up.
  7. The key was shortage. Forgot about that point.
  8. So with the shutdown not happening. Are these new cars coming retiring any cars? Or is it just additional service ? Like the R46's moving from the to the ?
  9. I know a few of the folks at the Community board on that side of town. Going to reach out make sure they understand what's going on. Might even to sit with them and help them go thru this if need be.
  10. The MTA Bus/NYCT thing didn't cross my mind you're probably onto something there as well.
  11. You know what your right! I'm sitting here trying to process this. When plain and simple it's fewer options and less service overall.
  12. I'm still processing these proposed changes. I kinda get what they're trying to do create a circular feeder route that ties into routes exiting Co-Op City. Id love to see what the full justification is for this design. Time savings, Capacity, etc. I just don't see how it can fully work at the very least the Bx28/38 could be remerged maybe to/from Bay Plaza but covering Section's 1-4. The 26 should stay as is covering 4 & 5. Not sure about the 30. The 29 I could see maybe being cut back. The Q50 should maybe go to Bay Plaza ? Interesting move by the MTA.
  13. Good question. If you don't do 1st Ave all the way up. You have the 59th Street Bridge and Queens Blvd to 278 as well as the QMT to 278 onto the RFK.
