  1. That's what they did, on the express track on the local track.
  2. That's interesting. I had a contactless chase card years ago, and they quietly replaced them with regular cards. (Now they're chip and signature cards)
  3. In that case they may as well just take the shuttle bus.
  4. Perhaps they should have delayed the shutdown until congestion pricing was enacted.
  5. The could go to Queens Plaza, double end the train with T/Os at QP so it's not on the lay up track for more than a couple of mins and they don't have to fumigate.
  6. The IRT created the "H" system after building 7th Ave and Lextington Ave lines. Did they consider criss-crossing the "new" line from 7th Ave to Lexington Ave instead of severing the original subway line along 42nd st? They could have had a (7th Ave 53rd st) type transfer station between uptown and downtown service.
  7. According to this they planned to run it to at least Broadway.
  8. They should run the line from from the Houston St through South 4th street, Stuyvesant and Utica Aves. There are already built stations, and they can do it quickly if they stop going overboard with Bore'd caverns. Alternatively they can branch off existing lines in Brooklyn (the middle track at Bedford -Nostrand or the around Myrtle Ave Station
  9. I agree, shut it down, get it over with. Especially since they were going to make improvements to a few of the stations.
  10. Those announcements seem like they had the shuttle plan in mind.
  11. Yes, so run the shuttle on the east bound track between 8th Ave and Union Square. 3 stops, easy to go back and forth, allow users to between between subway 4 lines, avoid reliance on M14 select bus snail. And if the Queue to Brooklyn is long, there is service in the opposite direction that will take you to alternative lines. Wow, I thought waterproofing was standard?
  12. For the queues in Union Square, are they telling riders to take the to Bleeker street for the or to ? Or. to Fulton street for the to ? Basically if they're not going to Bedford Ave then there is no need for them to go near the in Manhattan when they can get around the bottle neck where there is more service between Lorimer St and Rockaway Parkway. (Also, have they thought about running more frequent Manhattan shuttles to get people between alternative subway lines?:
  13. Well of course it would travel under Lafayette Ave, but The train turns north on Marcy Ave towards LIC and then the IND rammed a new street named Union Ave through most of Williamsburg, I doubt the IRT would have been able to do that.
  14. The IRT built Nevins St Lower Level as a provision for a Manhattan Bridge Connection and a Lafayette Ave line, where would the Lafayette Ave line have gone?
  15. I was just thinking about that, the Archer Ave stations look like crap, and it's the first station visitors see coming from the Airport/AirTrain. There is always a queue of confused tourist buying metrocards and crowding the turnstiles , they clearly should have more turnstiles on the south side of the station.
  16. How are they expecting to serve Mineola when the 3 tra/.ck is going to bypass it? Port Jeff Trains only
  17. They believe " a few miles per hour" makes no difference in travel times, but they fail to realize how speed also affects how many traffic signals you can get through, etc.
  18. Fall/Winter was the best time to get this done though.
  19. Should Brooklyn and Queens be done simultaneously and treated as one since they're connected? This is part of the reason the N6 is the busiest route in Nassau County, Frequent Service, and lots of trip generators, lot of intra-county trips. I mean it was all obvious to actual passengers. Bus lanes and Bus Priority, riders have been saying this for years. MTA: "We're going to introduce 'Bus Rapid transit' to NYC, we're going to allow pre-payment and intermittent bus lanes, this will really shorten your trips!" Riders: "But what about bus lane blockages, and the bus getting stopped every block or 2 because of traffic signals?" MTA: *Blank stare* From the presentation to the Queens board: Is it a coincidence that Vision Zero started in 2014?
  20. Trains on 20 min headway seems like they're alternating sending one train back and forth though the tunnel when theoretically they can send 2 or 3 trains at a time every 10-15 mins. Have short turns and put-ins at Myrtle, Broadway Junction and Canarsie. Unless the idea is just to provide enough service to say they're providing service but essentially make people take alternatives.
  21. Speaking of which, How well does CBTC handle bi-directional track sharing? For example if one track under the river is out for track work. couldn't they send trains in waves for more throughput ? Send 3 trains across to 8th Ave, once the 3rd train is at Union Square, you can send 3 (they'd be queued at 8th Ave, 6th and Union Square) back across to Brooklyn. once they cross Over east of Bedford Ave, send the next 3.
  22. I don't think buses would have been good enough. The is serving Roosevelt Island this weekend, some put-ins would have helped. The is running on 63rd St and Broadway, The is running on 53rd St and 8th Ave. The QBL had frequent service with the going local, they could have diverted some trains through 63rd street, to pick up some slack. I wonder if they asked riders to use Jamaica bound trains for access to other lines.
  23.
