Brighton Local

Brighton Beach Shuttle Bus Madness!

Recommended Posts

While Photographing the (Q) G.O. In Brighton this afternoon, one wouldn't realize how valuable weekend (Q) service actually is. Random people stopped and read the "No Trains at this Station / Use the Shuttle Bus" sign, and began to converse ( 99% in Russian ) about it. Others just read the sign, and still went up looking for the (Q), while other passing patrons were shocked to see, and not hear the (Q) rumble over the Brighton El. Its not that often that a G.O. like this is placed on the (Q). I'll tell you though, Brighton is actually really quiet without passing trains. I mean traffic you can hear anywhere,; cars/buses honking, alarms going off, EMS/Fire Trucks , Police Cars, but without the (Q) its a different neighborhood.

 

*A handful of the Shuttle Buses were out of Fresh Pond Depot.**

Most of the buses Scrollsigns displayed:

 

(Q) Train to Kings Highway, with a scroll change after "to"

 

(Q) Train Local to Coney Island, with a scroll change after "to" again.

 

Caught a few of the well known: Subway Shuttle signs

 

Then I caught a different one, on an RTS, the B/O had his sign displayed as:

 

Storm Route

(Q) Train Local to Coney Island
