  1. well to all yall naysayers saying the Q58 isnt going to work, well it is......1st of all it has no timepoints to worry about....just a leave time.....2nd of all the customers love the faster rider that they have experienced versus the slow local....and 3rd i was surprised how fast the customers caught on to the ltd....the traffic isnt that bad....and i as an operator, love it
  2. did u hear about the cuts that mta has proposed?......they r planning on eliminating several lines....B75 and B77 will become part of the B61......the B57 will terminate at smith and 9th st....B13 will terminate at myrtle /wyckoff.....B39 gone.....B51 gone.....B23 gone.....B1 switching terminals with B64 in Bay ridge....and B64 terminating at 25 ave....B4 terminating at coney island ave....B3 no ave X service.....B7 no overnight service.....B8 terminating at VA hospital.....B37 gone......B70 will be rerouted along 3rd ave in bay ridge and terminate at VA hosp....B67 and B69 will be combined line.....B12 will only terminate at Alabama ave....sheridan ave service gone.....Q24 will terminate at bdwy jct..... broadway portion gone......B31 no overnight service.....B48 will be terminating at fulton st....no service below that....B65 no overnight service.....B71 gone
  3. well they make a local bus.....and wats wrong with walking a few blocks....why be so exacting all the time....and the reason it crawl along grand ave is because they give u 16 minutes to go from 64 and grand to queens blvd...u dont need all that time all of the time....there is traffic all over the city and ltd stop still run
  4. they have been testing it out....and it going ltd from end to end.....no local stops then ltd.....its going 2 b nice.....its should be in apr....
  5. also look at the 103 for example....it pretty much duplicates the B6 but it has flourish....so dont try 2 knock the ext of the B23 bcuz it is a few blocks from the B8....east flatbush has a heavy immigrant population and service can b useful over there....
  6. yeah im laughin as well....but im an operator and as an operator i dont want 2 c lines disappear because of low ridership.....its thinking like that, that make ta eliminate lines and cut jobs for us operators....im just saying instead of eliminating it...think of new ways 2 make it useful....think outside of the box....
  7. i agree that is y i am saying 2 have them go williamsburg term so they can have access 2 the j as well....
  8. y eliminate the 23.....y not extend it down 16 ave into cropsey ave......and extend it down beverly rd....rt on brooklyn ave.....left on cortelyou rd......left on schnectady ave.....rt on2 beverly rd in2 ave b.....rt turn on remsen ave.....rt on ditmas ave in foster ave and terminate it at e83 st and foster ave.....they r building a mall over there and right now only the 17 is there....
  9. yes it does but they have built some much housing on the northside of grand st where the Q59 doesnt go thru....where the Q59 runs its more closer 2 schaefer landing on kent ave.....u should really check out the 40 story condos they built on north 7 st & kent ave.....when the economy changes and people start movin in there and they find out how crowded the L train is they r going 2 b looking 4 another way out....
  10. thats in the front.....they have a whole backside.....u may not remember but the B44 And 47 used 2 stop back there be4 the construction
  11. alot of line may lose overnight service.....its not the first time transit has done it and its not going 2 b the last....they did it back in 1995 when they eliminated the B5,B62,B47,B50.....overnite service was cancelled on the B2,11,16,69
  12. yes mta has gotten those buses from bee line and they r in lga depot.....they r numbered 118-140.....i c them all the time
