    Assemblyman Calls for NEW Audit of Express Bus Service

    The MTA has to pay for all of its audits, even when they're done by state agencies (which is most of them).

    Assemblyman Calls for NEW Audit of Express Bus Service

    "We should be aiming for perfect service...." No politician ever truly wants that, because complaining about problems is always better than solving them. After a problem is solved, it's no longer there to complain about or campaign about or fund-raise about. Besides, how many more audits is the MTA supposed to keep paying for? A full "forensic audit" of the entire MTA will show millions of dollars being spent annually on audits.
  3. NYC still owns the physical subway infrastructure and can take back full control at any time just by asserting its right to do so. However, that will never actually happen because that control would come with full responsibility (legal, financial, and political).
  4. The theory of "if you build it, they will come" works only when "they" know about "it."

    January 2019 Bus Route & Schedule Changes

    Twenty people running for an office that doesn't even need to exist?

    Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

    It's common knowledge that the 2010 "bailout" law requires fare and toll increases every two years.

    January 2019 Bus Route & Schedule Changes

    From what I've heard, the Q12 hawk run was moved earlier to report just after 10:00PM so it can clear before the busiest part of the AM rush. The 12:03AM trip is still there, but it's now covered by the hawk instead of a late run.

    Breaking News: Governor a Cuomo Signs Lockbox Bill

    Maybe they'll wait for the plan to take effect, see where the congestion actually is, and then reroute buses as needed.

    Breaking News: Governor a Cuomo Signs Lockbox Bill

    Can't get rid of tolls on those bridges or turn them over to NYCDOT. By state law, those bridges must have tolls which must increase every two years and must be shared with the suburbs.

    Breaking News: Governor a Cuomo Signs Lockbox Bill

    A "lockbox" is nice, but who really gets to keep the key?

    Andy Byford to Visit Bay Ridge

    For some reason, I'm reminded of a scene from The Simpsons. There's a newspaper with a photo of Mayor Quimby and the headline "Mayor Visits City."

    Queens Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    You can have it make that connection by using Austin Street (along with the Q23).
  13. "Wrinkles"? Those signals don't work at all when they get even slightly wet.

    Queens Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    It sounds like an extended Q64, so just call it Q64.

    The (L) and the (N) shuttles

    I thought the route letter in the destination sign always had to be smaller than the rest of the text, like an afterthought (see photo of #8339). When did the policy change to allow full-height letters?
