The Standard Medium sign at Broadway-Lafayette is sadly no longer with us...

They ripped it out to put in an electrical conduit for a new screen.

 

I'm glad I got a picture of it earlier

 

 

Thanks for posting the picture. Love the Standard Medium signs.

It seems like most of the ENY NTT trains now have the new ILOVENY ad on the second and third(or sixth and seventh) car.

How come they don’t put ads on the A cars ?

Hah, all the schedules tell me leaving Jamaica Center on the (E) at 9:10 PM “should” get me to Bedford Park (give or take some statistically favorable transfers/connections) to make it to the 10:35 PM W20 trip.

Welp, BOTH the IRT Jerome AND IND Concourse decided otherwise.

How’s your Thursday night going?

I have the similar question too. I just watched some videos on Youtube and  one R160 Q gets ads on all 6 B cars, two R160 E only get ad on 3 B cars. I dont understand the logic behind this. It doesnt make sense to me. It just likes a person only wearing clothes but no pants.

My elevators at my WeWork are very slow that I treat it like the subway. I do automated announcements saying things like "Ladies and gentleman, the next downtown elevator is now arriving. Please stand away from the platform edge." and, copying the announcer of the (4) and (5), "This is a downtown local elevator the next stop is Floor 6." I even wrote a schedule for the elevators, put chairs in it, and lined up a row of chairs to make Floor 7 station.

Interesting that some (4) trains have the original strip map with its transfers on their trains. 

Also, an (E) train has 3 out of the 5-cars with NY ads outside with a decorated 5-car 160.

If you look through their Tweets & Replies, they're pretty on top of responding to people. It's pretty great: WSPh12h.png

This is one of those things that's sad & funny at the same time..... Or maybe it's funny because it's quite sad...

Haha... Now that's GOAT status.

Now if that same zeal & promptness can somehow be transferred & implemented when it comes to quelling & eradicating actual delays !

Love how they assume that ridership won't drop further when they cut service. Factor in that, and savings are negligible at best. 

Golden, isn't it.....

They also assume us riders are vacuous dullards willing to adhere to literally anything they pitch..... Shit is highly insulting....

This has long been par for the course; they want the general public to believe that service cuts & budget trimmings are done with the riders' best interest in mind... 

Well, suffice it to say, I've never known of anyone to take a bus or train that no longer exists.
