Riders would not use my B55 to get to JFK from Downtown. The (A) is faster, mostly. There are occasional delays, but not that bad...

Since this is a proposa,l it's posted here. Here is the map: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=213458373195564989412.0004c53603b1f6a2307f2&msa=0&ll=40.694696,-73.99395&spn=0.150457,0.308647

 

It is a counter proposal to extending the B57 to Red Hook. The proposed DUMBO route would take up this slack instead, and the B57 is cut back to Downtown.

Why is the B18 using Liberty Avenue, and not Atlantic Avenue?

Because the Q24 is there...

Why is the B18 using Liberty Avenue, and not Atlantic Avenue?

 

I don't think it matters either way, as Liberty nor Atlantic are new markets.....

-------------------

 

 

I'm still thinking about what new market would it (the upcoming eny-spring creek route) test down in spring creek, and what part of ENY would it run to..... Don't know if I should speculate, but since this is the "ideas" thread, only thing that comes to mind is a route that goes from new lots subway to the postal facility.....

 

I'm not drawing a google map (someone else could if they're bored enough), but what I'm thinking is a route that:

- Parallels the B6 from New Lots (3) to cozine > left on cozine > right on elton > left on vandalia > right on erskine > left on seaview > left on fountain, and then mirroring what the B13 does @ fountain/flatlands to get to the postal facility.....

 

.....they could even use a route like that to justify cutting the 83 back to seaview/penn.... also, they could interline such a route w/ the 15's that short turn @ the postal facility.....

'

 

(Obviously directed at the MTA, not you), but that would be really stupid to cut back the B83 to prop up this new route. I mean, they don't even remotely serve the same area. The B83 connects Starrett City & the Pennsylvania Avenue corridor to Gateway, whereas this route would connect the New Lots area to Gateway.

 

Plus, the route to the Postal Facility would be too indirect, especially since you have the B13, B15, & B20 in that general area.

As you all know the B4 runs every 15-20 minutes rush hours and every 30 minutes middays. this bus must get more buses on that route before they want to improve service on anything else this is my plan

No need for a B63 Limited. There is the Subway that works just the same as a B63 Limited

 

 

Forget about the subway... Who would wait that long for a B63 limited anyway?

Agree w/B63. That is too imfrequent. The B63 is a connector route, it dosen't need a LTD. It's similar to giving a Crosstown route a LTD.

3rd Avenue dosen't need any real route, and that won't help, people want 5th Avenue, not 3rd.

I actually forgot about that route until you mentioned it.

I propose something for the B38

I plan to extend Limited stop service hours to 9 PM instead of 6:30 PM

Also, I plan to make Seneca Avenue buses limited also on Saturdays up to 9PM.

 

I wouldnt rename the B38 Starr Street branch because it would just confuse riders.

It dosen't confuse riders now (I know, I ride it everyday) so it won't confuse riders then.

 

I agree with extending LTD service on weekdays, but there is no need for weekend LTD service. The frequency isn't there/isn't necessary.

B76 and B76 LTD Updated and Revised Edition created by myself:

 

http://goo.gl/maps/TwD7F

 

Changes from my old B76:

 

- Buses are right now traveling from High Schools so high school students don't need to walk and can get to their stop easily. i.e. Telecommunications, Midwood

- People who wants to go to Mill Basin Plaza from Bay Ridge, Sunset Park, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, and more can get there by taking this bus without a transfer. This makes rides easier and faster.

- Limited Service is available for faster traveling than the B9 or B4 and it will add additional stops for people who needed to go to Bergen Beach.

- The bus route can also reduce overcrowding on some bus routes like the B6 and B11.

- Bus will serve Flatbush Bus Depot's Buses for easier deadheading.

- Local and Limited Bus Routes run every 15-30 minutes depending on School Tripper or Rush Hours

 

What do you think about it?

^^ I don't remember your prior "B76", but this one is way way too indirect.......

I'm not understanding what group of riders overall this route is supposed to be easing/helping the commutes of......
