qjtransitmaster 216 Posted May 22, 2011 Share #151 Posted May 22, 2011 So what was the other stop, the ETC? I think the X17J is one of those routes. It loops around the streets of the South Shore and then makes most stop along Richmond Avenue. I think this problem could be solved by splitting the X17J. Buses could run every 10 minutes or so, and then go onto the WSE instead of going down Richmond Avenue. Riders in the South Shore see a slight decrease in service, but have a much faster ride, which more than makes up for it. The headways along Richmond Avenue could be, say 7-8 minutes, so riders over here won't see that much of a benefit (except that buses will be slightly less crowded, so people might not have to let as many buses go by in the hopes of getting a seat) I've always wondered why riders coming from the New Springville area would pass up S89s and get on X17Js when the S89 could bypass several X17Js making all stops along Richmond Avenue, giving them a faster ride. cause those ppl are STUPID thats why they pass up S89 or want to just reach manhattan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
