SIR is running?

 

 

I know you in Athens but as of this time (1130 am US East coast time) website says its running but it could be an online error. Maybe someone like Checkmate who lives on SI can confirm.

MTA.info showed "Good Service" for a moment

Now the service status is saying its SIR service suspended again. Could be IT dept doing maintenance on the website. Earlier this morning many of the portals was blocked to incoming traffic by the firewalls they are using on the server end. (Just my educated guess) So Shortline is right.

 

Edit: Never mind Lex you saw the change first by less then a minute.

I just from the chairman that a subway station in South Street was flooded "literally up the ceiling".

 

 

LHOTA probably means South Ferry station.

Are they going to be running limited/free express buses tomorrow? Because if the subways are still closed on Wednesday, then that will be my only way of getting to CUNY in the morning.

If there's someone with a brain in charge, there will probably be a modified service plan to move the greatest amount of people. I would think emphasis would be placed on corridors that parallel subway lines. (M101, B25, Q60, Q32, etc).

Just heard that all buses and subway cars are okay even though some depots and stations flooded. As for Staten Island, I doubt the SIR would be able to fully run with the amount of flooding across the island particularly from Mid Island (i.e. South Beach, New Dorp/New Dorp Beach down to Tottenville). In any event Staten Island is still shut down.

 

UPDATE: Limited bus service to be restored starting around 17:00 today with full bus service expected tomorrow. For the anti-bus folks you'll be needing to use them if you expect to get around. It is estimated that it will take days before the subway system is fully up and running, maybe longer due to the amount of flooding and sea water in various stations. Also don't expect MetroNorth or the LIRR to be up for a while. Extensive damage to tracks with trees and flooding.

. Even MTA Headquarters fell to the storm, so this could be the very end of the subway system.

 

 

LOL

 

Dude we have survived 9/11 and the blackout of 03 in our recent history, One thing about New Yorkers is that we come together in are time of need so I think that the subway system will be back better then ever.

The NYC buses dont help me. Even if wanted to go to Manhattan my only way via public transit is drive to Newburgh and catch the costly CUSA/Shortline bus. Or peak direction weekday only bus service to White Plains via Leprechaun. That is until Mero North is up and running again. With Wall St reopening on Wed Halloween 2012 those in Northern suburus like me are screwed.

I could my wrong but my hutch is the express buses will be running. However for the SI/Brooklyn express buses they may use the Manhattan Bridge instead.

They will be running free bus service for whatever service is available. As for tomorrow you may have to grab a taxi, as the mayor has signed an executive order for cabs to stop all over and pick multiple people up. From what I heard from Lhota, he plans on using the bus system to supplement the subways where possible so there may be some re-routing of sorts occurring.

It's called subway shuttles buddy not the same as duplicate bus routes like Q32 as they run when subways are down. Don't lump em in together. Edited by qjtransitmaster
