Thank God.

However... my M14 got rerouted like crazy today. That is on 14th Street, pretty far away from the site. Any explanation for that?

I got on my M14A at Seventh Avenue at 1705

Bus continued on 14th Street to 6th Ave

Turned on 6 Ave to 16th Street

Continued on 16th Street to 5th Avenue

Continued on 5th Avenue to 12th Street

Continued on 12th Street to 4th Avenue

Continued on 4th Avenue/Union Square East to 16th Street

Continued on 16th Street to 3rd Avenue

Continued on 3rd Avenue to 14th Street

Then regular route

It took me AN HOUR just to get from Seventh Avenue to Seward Park

 

Any explanations for this major reroute?

In fact there was a level 1 alert response, which is VERY similar to 9/11 except WAY more organized.

 

Thanks for posting the service changes!

Yeah because although it was an accident, the city really did well to provide the best response service IN CASE IF SOMETHING REALLY HAPPENED.
