NICE Planned Service/Schedule Changes

Recommended Posts

The only routes I see coming back are weekend service on the n27, n36, n45, n50, and n72 to Babylon at some capacity. 

The county would rather recombine the n20G/H back into the n20 for the convenience of Hicksville/East Meadow Residents, and college students who love their one seat ride into Queens. The problem still remains of what to do with the n20 between Roslyn Clock Tower, and Hicksville when the semester is over. The n20H runs nonstop between Glen Cove Road and Broadway Mall because the people who live there don't want bus service. 

Actually SCT is proposing to have new Monday-Thursday route via NYS 109 between Farmingdale State College and Babylon Station to replace n72.

n20H lost lots of ridership due to split at Great Neck with n20H.

Sometimes when n20G Great neck arrives at Middle Neck Rd/Northern Blvd, n20H is already at left turn waiting to go to bus stop,  and sometimes people have to play FROGGER at dangerous busiest intersection on red light to catch connecting bus.

Considering NICE likes to update schedules every season, one idea that could possibly work is keeping the 30-minute headways on the n20H as-is...except during the Summer, when you could probably get away with making them hourly until having to restore half-hourly levels for the school year.

As far as all the south shore routes that have been eliminated, at least one of them has to come back. But...if they were to be restored to at least rush hour & midday levels...the n19 has to get midday service restored too (otherwise, you’re pretty much taking a north to south route with nothing to connect to on the south shore).

Now...between the n45, n46, n50, n51, and n73 (or shoot, even the n87)...not so sure which one of these routes (if only one) would be best fit for restoration...even if just a single bus was all that was reallocated during the day for said restoration.

The N20H does not run non-stop bet. Glen Cove Rd & Bway Mall. The non-stop portion is bet. CW Post & NY Tech due to Brookville nimbyism & safety concerns on Rt. 107.

I think point being made was that it runs "non-stop" between Glen Cove Rd and Broadway Mall in the Summer because college students are the main passengers within that section and the residents otherwise live in mansions and have no need for the bus.

Easily the n45, n50, and n73. The former (n45) because I'm not sure of NICE can get away with having a branch of the n43 go into Bellmore via Babylon Turnpike, the latter because all people bring up at the community meetings is wanting bus service on Newbridge Road east of Hempstead Turnpike. The n51 can pretty much stay dead unless NICE can figure out how to serve MSK at Uniondale and avoid the RXR Plaza at Glenn Curtiss Blvd. 

IIRC, the n46 got absorbed into the n47 before both routes got eliminated. I'm not sure if there's even space at HTC since NICE redid the bay assignments some time ago.

I can also see the n73 coming back for coverage reasons.

During the n20 day, on weekends, n20 bus drivers are not allowed to enter NYIT Loop. New driver driving entered NYIT Campus and security guard reminded him/her.

I think n20H should stop outside NYIT on weekends. There are some people who catch bus at CW Post and SUNY Old Westbury since there's no safe spot to make corresponding stops on Rte. 107.
