    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    I've noticed the Eagle team that checks tickets on the Q44 by Union Tpke now has an unmarked green van they sit in instead of the marked van that basically screams "BUY YOUR TICKETS"

    And yet I can swipe my legitimate card 100 times in a row and still get the "swipe again" message over and over smh

    With all that fancy-pants tech, how did those low-lives hanging out in the stations figure out how to bend the mag strip in such a way that it gives you free rides? I thought this problem was still an ongoing issue?

    Back in the PBL days, the Orion Vs and some Suburban RTSs that were on CP's express routes took the Midtown tunnel every day

    I got an email saying there would be an extra 6 am and 7 am departure on the QM5 on President's Day

    Unbelievable. I left the city early on Friday before the long weekend to start my vacation early, and even at 4 pm the QM buses were running 15 mins late

    I guess 5/7 buses is a relative improvement lol. I caught an empty QM5 at 7:00 because it was bunched with another QM5 that was jam packed right in front of it smh

    That disrespect for public property starts with how you were raised as a kid at your own home

    Yup, I was on the 7 pm bus. Tons of traffic all day today, I don't know what was up with that. Took 20 mins extra travel time both ways

    Ideas to Alleviate Severe 7 Train Overcrowding

    More QM3 service definitely is a no-brainer that could "theoretically" be implemented at the next pick. But knowing MTA, they will say there aren't enough buses or drivers or fuel or tires LOL I also think it would be somewhat feasible to have some buses and B/O that are on standby (like an extra list) to go into service parallel to a subway when that subway line breaks down, sort of like a shuttle on-demand. But this would require a level of flexibility and ingenuity the MTA seems to lack.

    Did you use the same card on any other bus/subway since this occurred? I once had the same issue with my XBus Plus Unlimited Card, and it killed the card. Had to send it back, which was a whole hassle

    I can't wait to hear about the meeting! As usual, no 6:30 QM1, thought the 7 pm is running on time (I saw it sitting at the terminal at 6:50. The 6:45 QM31 (which I am currently on) is running perfectly as usual. Clearly major games going on with the QM1 in particular. Also, since you've been posting about how late the QM5/6 on weekends are back to Queens, I took a look at the timetables, which I haven't done in years since I already have a mental timetable after all these years, and I burst out laughing. The times listed to get back to Queens, especially past 188th Street, are laughable. Even with no traffic, it just isn't possible now. I'm not sure they were ever really realistic. More like aspirations LOL
