Trips Seem Longer?

Recommended Posts

Is it me, or do trips on the new tech trains (R142, R143, R160) seem to take longer because of the automatic announcements. Whenever I ride the (N) at night and I get an R160, it seems we idle in the station for a lot longer then we would if a conductor was making announcements.

Maybe a little bit longer than usual but nothing that noticeable. Maybe the conductor you're getting is a little slow on the controls or maybe it is that the train is a little ahead of schedule.

Yea the NTT trains do idle longer in stations.Because of the atuomated anncements.Like for example when redbirds were in service. They would only be the station for like 15 seconds and then leave on to the next station.But the R142 stays in the station for like 2 minutes because of pointless atuomated anncements.

Pending on the conductor somethings on the NTTs. Some would rush through the announcements, some just let it play out completely. They have to keep to a certain time of keeping the doors open at a station. Can't just come into the station, open the doors for just 2 seconds, close them and leave. Doesn't give people time to get on or off the train.

 

And late nights, it might seem that way because people might need just a little more time to get on or off trains because they may just be tired. And trains tend to keep ahead of schedule on some routes so just to stay on schedule, they just keep the doors open on a trains a little longer, just for a few seconds.
