Superstorm Sandy: After the Storm: NYC Bus Service

Recommended Posts

So, LTD bus service will be resuming this evening, which HOPEFULLY means the B43 will be running... I know most of Manhattan south of 42nd Street will not have service, and the Woodhaven routes will probably only be the Q11/Q53 between Rockaway Blvd and Pitkin Avenue...

 

If an article is found on this, then please add it to the post.

I wish they'd be more specific as to which ones will be running, but whatever. I wonder if LGA's routes will be running, or if the M60 will be running.

Will bus routes in Manhattan shortturn?

 

 

I would imagine routes will be shortturning at 57th, and avoiding the collapsed crane as well.

But Bloomberg estimated it would be four or five days before subway service is restored. Officials said limited bus service would resume Tuesday, with fares waived.

Lhota said buses would be used to replace subway service along lines where repairs are expected to take longer.

Buses can start pulling out of depots as early as 3pm says an MTA spokesman on channel 7 now.

 

EDIT: Take a look at BusTime, the Bx1 is starting up out of Riverdale as I type!

This is an enormous task so the NYCT should be cut some slack. I would have to think that each division and depot will focus on getting the major routes up and running first. There's also a possibility that subway shuttles may have to be operated.

I know. I just exactly didn't understand what they meant the partial service.

OK, so is the MTA site down? Nothing is working there....

 

 

Is it? Only the home page is on for me.

The M5, M14, and M34 are now partially running. The first two are running with no traffic lights below 26th since none of us down here have power.
