I just seen a Service change flier on the Bx4 and starting tomorrow they are gonna extend the Bx12 Local to Orchard Beach and 207st on weekends.

And send the Select Bx12 to Co-Op City!

 

I guess they realized them kids ain't gonna be paying to get on that select bus! Lol

wtf? No more BX12 to Orchard r u kidden me?? Now we have to take a local instead, Dear god! This is the (MTA) fault of course, the Bx12 brts hardly has a damn Fare inspector. like wtf.. The B/O cant handle fair beaters of course.

 

So does this mean the the Bx12 Local will stop at the Bx12 SBS stopsw from sedgwick to Broadway? or are the Bx12 lcl stops still there?

 

And whats up with the Bronx 4 taht lead to this? Im confused

I am upset about this.

Bx12+Select Bus Service was much fast ride than local because it makes non-stop between Pelham Bay Park & Orchard Beach similar to old Q53 express between Rego Park and Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.

it doesnt matter to me because whenever i go to Orchard Beach, i always take the (6) to Pelham Bay Park and end up taking the Bx12 bus from there for a shorter ride, instead of having to take that long ride from the (A)(;)(D)(1)(2)(4)(5) trains.

Yes maybe cuz u live near the (6) or a subway connecting to it. While others dont have access to it if they dont live near Pelham-Lex Line..

Its on the Bx4 because the 4 runs out of Gun Hill as well as the 12. They post those alerts on all buses in the depot that has a route change!

I don't feel like there was a need to send the Bx12 local to Manhattan on the weekends. Saw 4 in a row yesterday afternoon (3 KB buses, 1 GH) and they weren't crowded at all. Plus they still had buses short-turning at Sedgwick.

What did you expect? Ridership has dropped on the Bx12 LCL.

 

I know that ridership dropped, so there's no point in it going 207th St on the weekends. It's not going to make more people ride it, (MTA) is just wasting resources.

lol nah i live in Brooklyn, but i find the closest subway to the beach where i dont have to take that long ride on the Bx12 local. id take the (Q) to 14 St, the (4)(5) Express to 125 St, the (6)<6> to Pelham Bay Park, THEN the Bx12.
