Your own [NICE] operations

Recommended Posts

If you had your own bus company...

 

-What would you name it?

 

-What current NICE route, defunct LIB route or other routes (including Long Island Beach, LITNY, etc) would you operate?

 

-What changes, if any, would you make to those routes?

 

-Who from this or other transit forums would you want to help you (handles only)

 

-Would you contract your routes out or operate them jointly with someone else? If so, who?

 

-What fleet would you use?

I would choose everyone who is familar with Nassau County excluding QJ.

 

N6/N6L: Add N6L Limited trips during weekends except late night.

Implent NICE BRT or NICEFastRapidTransit:

Use same MetroCard or Coin Fare Collectors that SBS Uses.

 

N20/L/N21: Extend hours of N20L during rush hours.

 

N23: Extend to Roosevelt Field Mall non-stop from Mineola.

N88: Restore N88 bus and uses coach buses on weekend to accordinate more crowds.

 

I am still thinking.
