Recommended Posts

April 19th

When I saw (7) arriving Junction Blvd, I was about to climb up stair, but I saw Q72 and so I boarded Q72 #3617 departed Junction Blvd/Roosevelt Av @ 11:30, When bus entered LGA, I saw M60.

Arrived LGA Central Terminal @ 11:53.

Total time: 23 minutes.


Next, I got on M60 #3863 departed 11:56, arrived 106th St/Broadway @ 12:47.

Total time: 51 minutes.


Next, I got on M5 LTD #6772 (B/O Friend) departed Riverside Dr/97th St @ 13:02.

When bus arrived at Houston St, B/O thought there was no space at LGA Place, but there were space, so he moved his bus from Greene St to LGA Place, which made lady happy. Arrive Houston St/LaGuardia Place @ 13:47.

Total time: 45 minutes.


Next, I got on his bus M5 LTD #6772 departed 14:07, arrived Riverside Drive/97th St @ 15:11. My friend gave me transfer, so I could get on M57 at 72nd St.

Total time: 64 minutes.

When I went to my alter master HSES, Recycling Club was cancelled because of PD Meeting.

I went back to main 2nd Floor where I saw my former teachers/paraprofessionals there.


Around 16:15, I left my old school and went to check if taxi group stand at 8th Av/56th St were working, but afraid not. No one because of truck blocking the sign.

Plus NYCT&L did not make sign big.


At 57th St/8th Av, I boarded M57 #5208 departed 16:24, arrive 57th St/6th Av @ 16:27.

Total time: 3 minutes.


Next, I got on front car of Jamaica-bound (F) #9182 departed 57th St @ 16:31, arrived 21st St-Queensbridge @ 16:37.

Total time: 6 minutes.


At 41st Av/21st St, I was deciding which bus I should do because I wanted to try Q102 from 1st stop. Good thing Q103 #3646 came first and departed 16:43. This B/O was way comedian like Ralph Kradmen. Arrive 27th Av/2nd St @ 16:56.

At same stop Q102 came to it's first stop which was coming S on 2nd St. Now I know how Q18/Q102/Q103 turns around via 1st St, 26th Av, 2nd St.

Q102 #3602 departed 16:58.

When bus got near Queens Blvd, it got stuck in huge traffic, but very bad like Lincoln Tunnel.

Even thought it was small Roosevelt Island loop, Coler Campus first and Goldwater campus last. It was so crazy.

After Q102 depart Colder Campus, there was Q102 rider at old bus stop. I tried to tell her bus stop is at hospital.

After Q102 departed 10 Main St, regular Q102 riders told him.

Passenger: You're suppose to STOP.

LGA B/O: I don't stop here. Next stop is by the church. They change Sunday.

At by bridge, other Q102 lady loves the new pattern and frequent. I feel same way because when Q102 was seperate directions on each trip, I was checking both way at subway station, which way bus was coming.

When bus was going back to 31st St, there was disabled bus.

Arrive 31st St/30th Dr @ 18:46.

Total time via Roosevelt Island Loop: 108 minutes.
