Before the (S) Franklin Avenue Shuttle was rehabilitated in 1998, there was consideration of closing the line and Dean Street was closed in 1995. Fortunately they went with rehabilitation and improved the line.

 

It's a good connection between the (A)(C) at Franklin Avenue and the (B)(Q) at Prospect Park and now with a transfer to the (2)(3).

You could try another alternative using the buses: B2 from the Brighton KH stop to the Q35 at Flatbush Av and then the Q22 to go further into the Rockaways.

Obviously it works if you have an unlimited, and dunno if you want to try that.

 

The Q35 goes to 116st right or what? I know from there i could transfer to a Q22, and itll drop me off right on my street.

Yup, B116th. But you might have to walk down a few blocks from there. There's a stop around 147th, but I would only recommend that if it is during the day and if it seems like there's people around.

1)EXTEND HANOVER PLACE(ITS BET. BOND &NEVINS) NORTH TO JNCT OF

DEKALB&FLATBUSH AND SOUTH TO JNCT OF BOND&SCHERMERHORN.

2)EXTEND NEVINS ST IRT PLATFORM WESTWARD TO WEST OF HANOVER

PLACE

3)BUILD LIGHTRAIL/TROLLEY/PEOPLE MOVER FROM DEKALB AVE STATION TO

HOYT/SCHERMERHORN .

4)DISMANTLE FRANKLIN SHUTTLE&CREATE AN ALLEE//PARK IN THE ROW.

 

Hanover Place is in downtown running between Fulton and Livingston Streets, right near the IHOP and the Greyhound Lines building. What does that have to do with the Franklin Avenue Shuttle, and why would you think that anyone would knock down buildings to extend an essentially-useless unidirectional, one-block-long street?

sorry about caps.

to clarify:

Proposal is to build an underground line

below Hanover place.

Proposed line is a shorter replacement for Franklin shuttle.

Franklin shuttle's main purpose is to connect

Brighton, Fulton & IRT lines.

Hanover Place connection does the same AND connects

also crosstown line and fulton express to IRT&Brighton & 4th avenue local.

When the (MTA) was rehabbing the Shuttle, why did they make it one track? :mad: It really limits capacity and flexibility. For example, in an emergency G.O., a full train can't reach Fulton Street without causing backup. :confused:;):tdown:

I think overall the line can get away with extending the platforms at the Franklin and Botanical gardens stops. The main problem is Park Place where they may need to build a cross over to connect the 'n/b' platform to the south bound one [which will have to be moved over so they can fit back the original s/b track].

 

I also wished the curve at the s/b side of the shuttle heading to Prospect Park wasn't so sharp. It would be nice if they could rebuild that.*

 

* I know it'll never be done, but I was thinking: what if they have the shuttle tracks enter into the express tracks and the outer tracks be used by the Manhattan Bridge bound trains? That way the curve from the shuttle entering the s/b side of Prospect park would not be so sharp as it is.

i used to make that trip. i once dated a woman in sheepshead bay. the Q22 to B147 St. get off and the Q35 makes the same stop. take that to Kings Plaza mall. In front of the mall, the B2 picks up at the first bus stop. Or you can take the Q35 to Fillmore ave (next to the Flatbush bus depot) and take the B100. Its a helluva lot quicker than the subway. Sorry to go off topic. Man that trio brings back memories. Lol

What's wrong with the shuttle as it is today?

 

Nothing really wrong, but it shouldn't have been rebuilt with such narrow limitations. Ideally, it should have been built to accommodate full length trains so that Brighton trains could terminate there in the even of a GO or service disruption.

In a perfect world sure. Didn't they actually do that once back in the day due to trouble with the switches or tower at Prospect Park?

 

IMO, at least, a lot of these ideas are just pure foam, with little consideration given to finances, feasibility, and demand.
