BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

Recommended Posts

Why would you propose an idea if you don’t have an answer for ‘why it’s an idea you had’?

If you look at all the proposals and random thoughts posts of “ideas”, there’s always some motivation beyond “I was sitting on the toilet and it popped in my head” - that’s what’s being sought here.

If you need an in-depth example of this, look for @LaGuardia Link N Tra’s RBB reactivation post in the Subway forum.

Wow, I had to go back and reread that thread. Looking back, I see how much I have changed when it comes to posting ideas since I first posted that thread. As much as I’d love to see the RBB be reactivated for rail service (don’t even care if they choose Subway/LIRR anymore), I think I’m getting a better understanding of why its not simple to do so given the costs and politics behind it. If the city could at the very least clean up the Right of Way to allow for the provision of either a rail or trail line, I’d be content with that. But that’s unlikely to happen anytime soon. Also, Don’t know how I managed to get that thread to be 34 pages long, but somehow I did that...

Who thinks the B15 should have another route where it goes with the B83 then the B6 to Bensonhurst

Now, I’m no expert when it comes to the Brooklyn Bus Network (that’s mainly cause I was live in Queens), and taken into consideration that everyone else has said further up the thread but

1. the B15 is already long enough as is, I’m not sure about the B83 and B6 since I don’t live in Brooklyn. 

2. What is the rationale behind this route? Are you proposing the idea just for the fun of it?

That’s why I cited it - it’s probably the best example of how to get up to speed on how it works here.

There is no demand for that. Not only would there be an extensive amount of backtracking to get to the B83 route in the first place (backtracking btwn E 98 St + Van Siclen Av), most of the route would be redundant if it would be overlapping with the B6. Only way I could see it maybe working is if it was a limited service, but even then, going from Bed-Stuy to Bensonhurst via the B83 and B6 routes would definitely not be the fastest way and (depending on the route's frequency) the overlapping bus routes would overshadow the demand for such a route.

Trying to give a new poster a chance to abandon Reddit and Twitter “Forever Alone” tendencies and become a contributing member before the banhammer gets swung.

So, trying to turn a (bad) troll into a contributing member.... Got it.

@Deucey it was just a idea. these people made it a problem

move out of the way, boys, let’s try giving this a woman’s touch...

Look, the thing about message boards is they don’t work like Facebook or Reddit. You don’t just post whatever you want. You follow the rules of the community.

yeah, you had a rather random thought, but I admit the title to this thread can be misleading. 
 

you asked about the B15 to Bensonhurst... you asked us what we thought about it, but didn’t provide sufficient details to allow those of us who are trying to understand you to figure out your question.

 

why the B15? Why not another route? Why not a new route?

why take bus service AWAY from a not only a major transportation hub, but a major source of jobs?

who benefits from it?

these are the questions we all ask each other all the time anyone comes up with an idea... unless that person is Wallyhorse, then we just yell at him and move on with our day.

 

if the others seem a bit brash about it... it’s because you’re not the first person like you to pass this way... nor shall you be the last... it’s just... well... to paraphrase another, more well known quote “the day you joined this site and made you comments was an important day in your life... but to us... it was Tuesday.”

We see this sort of behavior all the time. Hell, I dare say you’re at least civil, some people come in here reeking of attitude.

so, do yourself a favor. Calm down, ask questions, interact, but don’t worry. They’re not picking a fight with you. This is just how we talk to each other.

So let me ask you something...

@lormier st is your “brother” and by your own words, a troll account.

You registered here in Sept 2020, make a post only about the subway car models you own, then go silent until now when “your brother” went silent because we mods put him on post approval.

And your first post - detailing the unplanned service change on the 4th Av Line - after months of silence, comes right after “your brother” posted “Deucey let me talk” - which we still haven’t approved so it remains hidden.

Here’s the question: why should we assume that you’re not lying about “your brother” and that you (or, you and he) aren’t here tag team trolling?
