Unplanned Subway Service Changes

Recommended Posts

I don’t understand why they don’t just have recessed cameras on the sides of cars covering the doors and monitors in the cab so C/Rs don’t need to open the window to check the platforms.

They should have not only cameras, but also security as well, in every station and every subway car (including the cabs). This way, crimes throughout the entire subway system are vastly reduced. It also lets them see everywhere the trains go too. This way, they can keep track of their on-time performances, crowding levels on platforms and trains, and irregularity of trains. It also prevents the T/Os from using the punch boxes just to let each tower know what train they’re operating. It’s still up to them to route you correctly, however. It also helps to prevent C/Rs from answering passengers’ questions and thus delaying their assigned train.

Honestly, whatever dude.

But it's not like assaults on transit employees and/or innocent civilians in general are a minor issue anyway so. And neither should they be taken so lightly.

This will be another topic in a different thread for some other time.

Trains Rerouted

Northbound (B) and (D) trains are running with delays because of a signal problem at 145 St.

The last stop on some northbound (D) trains will be 135 St.

Some northbound (D) trains will run via (A) line from 145 St to 207 St.

That reroute might have caused a lot of issues especially for passengers heading to The Bronx as the nearby (4) line had Woodlawn-bound trains running express.

Unless they took the (C) 1 stop northbound to 155th Street and transferred to the Bx6, getting them to the 161st Street-Yankee Stadium (4) Station.

The 155st viaduct can get really congested, sometimes it's faster to walk.

Too bad the shuttle bus doesn't help if you're trying to connect to/from the subway...

 

Stations Skipped  Posted: 09/08/2019  2:29AM

(2) and (4) trains are bypassing Nostrand Av in both directions while FDNY responds to extinguish a trash can fire at that station.

For service to/from Nostrand Av, use the nearby (2) Shuttle bus stopping at Nostrand Av and Eastern Parkway.

The MTA mentioned Franklin Avenue in the relevant listing.

Hi, I'm new and I hope this is the right place for this.

I regularly use the CPW Local and was disappointed how the MTA handled delays in (B) Train service. According to their website, Manhattan bound trains were held at Avenue M for a bit so clearly they were late once they reached Manhattan. The MTA had all uptown (B)'s run express around 3:30 amd this was quite frustrating to witness because that only left the (C) on it's 9 minute interval.

This was very frustrating because I witnessed two (B) trains, an (A) and a (D) pass me by at 72nd Street. I apologize for the rant but I just don't understand why the MTA couldn't send an (A) or (D) local as none of them were affected by the (B) delay. This could be a different story on the weekend but this was at the start of rush hour.

Tl;dr: (B) Trains were severely delayed in Brooklyn so they all went express on CPW leaving the (C) by itself at the start of rush hour.

The last sentence sounds funny.

Trains Rerouted  Posted: 09/14/2019  5:41PM

Some southbound (A) and (C) trains are running on the (F) line from W 4 St-Washington Sq to Jay St-MetroTech while we address signal problems at Canal St.

Expect delays as we work.

This is super late and is no longer relevant as of now, but earlier this morning, because of switch problems at World Trade Center, some (E) trains went over the (C) after West 4th Street to Jay Street - MetroTech. The (MTA) also had rerouted an (E) all the way to Euclid Avenue (as shown on a reply to a user on the tweet). What a rare reroute to happen. 

 

 

It is a rare reroute (had not been in this thread in a while).

Another reason for rebuilding Atlantic Avenue to at least four tracks so it can be a short-turn terminal.
