    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    @checkmatechamp13 Do you know if the S93 service has been boosted? BusTime is showing 10:34am, 10:46am and 10:58am departures from Bay Ridge but the schedule is showing every 20mins 10:17am, 10:37am, and 11:00am.

    Yeah, see I'm more of a perfectionist, and little things like what I explained irks me. Cmon it's so easy to fix, and there was enough time to do it. I HATE glitches, and wrong information being posted.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Ok so I rode the SIM33C today and the MTA/DOT is a disgrace. Hmm where should I start?! Ok lets start with the stops. They did an ok job placing the new SIM33C signs in the city, although there's still a bunch of SIM4C signs in S.I where they shouldn't be along Gannon etc. Most of the SIM33 signs say Greenwich Village in Staten Island, so no one would be aware of a SIM33C. Ok now lets go to the destination signs...SIM33 says Mariners Hbr - via N Gannon - Combination. Needs to add via Narrows Rd N, idk why they did not update that. The SIM4C sign still says via N Gannon via Richmond....cmon, can't tell you how many people got f**ked over when they found out the bus wasn't using the service road anymore. Now lets go to Bustime.... Wtf is good with the SIM4Cs route in Staten Island? LMAO imagine that was the actual route. They completely messed up the SIM33Cs routing in Manhattan. They have it going all the way up 6th Ave instead of down Madison. As of today...things didn't feel right...there's gonna be a BIG cut next pick. WAY to many empty buses today, most 33Cs carried no more than 10-15. 3Cs no more than 10-15. There's just way to much out right now. And with everything going to Midtown we're going "back to the old way". Well they're about to get what they preached. The way I see it, is they're definitely eliminating/rerouting one of the routes soon.

    Word, but I'm saying I've been on LFS when it was more common on the S79 when the NGs were having the electrical issues, and they didn't have blue signs.

    Relax with the attitude, they didn't always have the blue signs.

    MTA Bus Operations: On-board screens and announcements

    None of them work either. The screens are either completely off or show the ads. No talking or nothing, you can't even see if the stop request sign was pulled or not. At least with the Novas, the Stop Requested sign on the screens work, along with the ads, but the next stop info is frozen on a stop with no announcements.

    Every Staten Island local bus I've been on with the Version 2 screens are frozen. What a joke.

    R179 Discussion Thread

    Gotcha, it's just so stupid how the base order of R211s are gonna be standard, and then options would have the open gangway. They should've down the real testing with this small order. I wish I followed up on trains more often.

    R179 Discussion Thread

    Since this order is a certified joke, they should spec the incoming R179s with the new R211 features so when the R211s come, everything has already passed. I'm talking strictly about the open gangways. Maybe two 10 car sets can get the open gangways? They should've done that from the start, since these are basically modified R160s, the next generation subway cars should be all out different.

    Honestly just put the whole fleet, there's maybe like 5-10 that didn't get them installed yet.

    I can't wait to see how hideous the SIM33C destination code is gonna look with combination spelled out on a split screen 🤢. [SIM33 |Combination] 😥

    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    But then at the same time, that would increase dwell times. Finally someone responded to my actual post. Seems like everyone got distracted on the R211 video, I only added that because hopefully my preferred announcements can start on the R211s, especially with the having three different terminals. Doing it LIRR style with a new short door announcement, it would go: "This is an train to Far Rockaway. The next station is 59st -Columbus Circle. Stand clear, doors are closing." "This is an train to Bay Ridge. The next station is Jackson Heights - Roosevelt Ave. Stand clear, doors are closing."

    Whatttt, do they teach that in training or do you just have to know that being a driver? I've never seen that before.
