  1. Don't think I've ever ridden a new bus in it's first weeks of service. I've been on the XD60 twice in the first 3 days of service without trying. I guess it's luck?

      I've ridden almost all the new stuff within days/weeks of them entering service.

      I took the new XD60's twice during the week they were introduced and I tried getting on 5987 the other day but it wasn't out by the time I got to Jamaica.

  2. I kinda like the NICE XN40's more than our XD40's, but they should really maintain them better.

      Yellow poles for visibility.


      Less seats because thats how the manufacturer spec's them, not the MTA.


      Straps, idk.

      IDK, Apparently they have cameras that enable the driver to see traffic BEHIND them..... If that's the case, then that alone shits on our XD40's IMO....

      Our 7000s are garbage.


      By the way, the XN40s have the same amount of seats as our XD40s.

  3. Looks like Port Washington branch experienced a 2 hour early shutdown. Train has been stuck there for quite a damn long time, and everything from that line is being canceled.

  4. Was not a fun night to commute, got caught up on i-95 due to a horrible accident. Traffic was moving extremely slow until emergency vehicles came up, blocked off the road. Luckily, was right next to an exit and had to take a reroute since they blocked off the interstate for quite a bit.

      YOU or the person that was driving?


  5. Commuting home, I proceeded to see a large tow truck (the type that tows buses) towing a flatbed tow truck that was towing a car.

  6. Can't wait for Q44 +SBS+ to launch next month. (Hopefully....)

      They've already repaved main street from Elder Av to Kissena. You might also want to check out this: http://www.nyc.gov/html/brt/downloads/pdf/2015-09-22-brt-flushing-jamaica-cb7-presentation.pdf

  7. WTF? So we purchased two day passes ($9.95 + tax) for CitiBike, and it says it was $39.09. We docked the bike and got a new code at around every 30 minutes, and the person who was there to help w/ the bikes said "it won't matter if you're late a little." WTF?

      Well did you all dock your bikes properly? Did you go over the time allotted? If not dispute the charge and you'll like be refunded the money on the card.

      I went over the time once or twice by like a minute or two, but the CitiBike personnel who were at Lafayette & Spring Street told me that it's fine if you go over the time by a little.

      lol... If that is true, then there's something very fishy...

  8. I've ridden R188 7888-7898 4 times in 4 weeks without even trying...... and R188 7833-7843 two times in two weeks.

      Lol, it feels weird being stalked by a train.

    3. ttcsubwayfan


      There's another transit forum I go on where's a whole thread dedicated to the topic of "stalker units". Back in the days of Toronto's H5s, I used to see two particular pairs on a semi frequent basis, every time I'd go hunting. But then they were retired :(

      Nice. My R188 stalker unit(s) are the 7888 set and 7833 set :P

  9. Finally managed to get on 7857 and TAKE A SELFIE.

  13. April 30th marks my three year anniversary!

  14. Thanks for 60 subs!

  15. Trying to change my profile picture... I'm using a 484 KB picture, but it says it is max 500 KB. What?

    1. BM5 via Woodhaven

      Put in the URL instead of the picture directly. That's what I did for mine.

  16. Chrome just can't work correctly. Getting 2-3 pop-up messages from the browser saying "Your profile could not open correctly" is annoying as hell.

    1. peacemak3r


      I've been using Chrome for a while now and even a Chromebook and why have I not encountered what you are over the years?
