Unplanned Subway Service Changes

Recommended Posts

It was north of 125th Street. The (B) is suspended. Only a few (B) Trains got sent up to 96th Street-2nd Avenue but that was because they were already in Manhattan or North of Dekalb Avenue when the it occurred

Don't mean to sound rude but how do you know this if your upstate?

Those (B) to 96th Street was on Twitter (Someone complained on why it became a (Q) ) and for the (B) being suspended, one of my CR friends who's working the line only did a trip so far and they haven't had any (B) Trains leave the terminal because of it. Everyone is being held there so thats how I know.

Probably a good thing I'm upstate.

Due to an investigation between 59 St-Columbus Circle and 125 St the following service changes are in effect:

There is no a.png train service between Jay St-MetroTech and 207 St in both directions.

There is no b.png train service between Brighton Beach and 145 St in both directions

c.png train service is suspended between Euclid Av and 168 St in both directions.

There is no d.png train service between 42 St-Bryant Park and Inwood-205 St in both directions.

Allow additional travel time.

Lol (D) train service between inwood-205th st, seems legit

If there is one thing that bothers me is the way the so called mainstream media traffic reporters have been reporting that the B Service has been restored just like the A and D Service. For the last two hours I have been listening to WABC and that is what they have been reporting even though the MTA official website  has stated the B Train is running via the Q Line to 96th Street - 2nd Avenue not via Central Park West. I may be sounding like a purist but do any of these reporters ever check the MTA website to make sure that they are giving out correct information to the public? I wonder about it!.

The MTA Website has the B running its regular route to 47th-50th Streets then via the F and then via the Q to 96th Street. Since I do not listen to the radio until 5 PM, I would be interested from other forum members  in knowing if the radio traffic reporters are still saying that the B is running (which is correct) but not adding the part about that it running to 96th Street (which should be stated at that time)?

They've always been like that when it comes to the subway. It's either they don't know or don't care, combined with the fact most viewers don't care either. They'll likely take the latest press release which says that service is running semi-normally and go from there. The most egregious example I've heard recently was when the 7th Avenue and Lexington Ave lines were called the red and green lines respectively.

But they are red and green.

We New Yorkers take pride in not calling them that. It's what separates us from the tourists coming out from bumf*** Wisconsin. That and 6th Avenue vs. Avenue of the Americas.  :P

Real New Yorkers don't say that. Transplants need to get with it. We don't ever call the lines by their colors. It sounds stupid. We say the Lex Line, 7th Avenue line etc. It's clearer and precise. The people that call them by their colors are either transplants, or New Yorkers that don't have a clue about the subway. I never understood how transplants came up with that anyway. There are just certain rules that are clearly New York things. The other options is using the numbers or letters of the lines like the (4)(5)(6), but usually saying the Lex line is better (shorter).

I've only ever seen tourists or transplants in, like, their first week in the city do that. They learn pretty quickly...

 

Now I have seen some call the 8th Avenue line the Ace, and it takes every thing in my power to not burst out laughing...

I come from real New Yorkers that still to this day say "Take the IRT/IND/BMT to..."

 

God rest my grandmother, she called the Concourse "Grand Boulevard" til the day she died.

That's actually normal. Saying the (4)(5)(6) or the (A)(C)(E) is the alternative. Flows off the tongue nicely. Saying 8th Avenue is longer than the (A)(C)(E). Same deal with the (1)(2)(3) versus the 7th Avenue line. I think the first time I heard anyone use colors to describe a subway line was a friend of mine from college who had decided to move to NYC. I thought it was weird but he was able to pull it off with his Colombian/German accent. lol Edited by Via Garibaldi 8

If you understand what the Concourse is modeled after (I suspect she does) then it makes sense why she called it that.

Champs-Élysées, IIRC.

 

But she wasn't the type that'd know that. IIRC it used to be called Grand Boulevard and Concourse, so she stuck with it, like my maternal family in Detroit still calling Fenkell and McNichols Five and Six Mile Roads, respectively.

Right and so from that the idea was that the Grand Concourse was the Bronx's version of the "grand boulevard" like the Champs-Élysées in France. Very wide street with beautiful art deco buildings.

Due to Broadway Bridge being open for marine traffic, northbound 1 trains are running express from 215 St to Van-Cortandt Park-242 St.

Maintainers are on the scene investigating. We will keep you updated.

Allow additional travel time.
