New Announcement only on R142 or R142/R143/R160?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if R142, R143, R160 is making new announcement?

 

Today, on (5) #6341 ex (2) car made this announcement at 59th St.

"This is 59th St. Transfer available to (6), (N), (R) and (W) trains. You may also transfer free to (F) train at Lex Av/63rd St by walking, using MetroCard."

 

"Protect your proberly."

Have anyone heard this announcement beside R142 or only R142?

It might be new. Maybe its old. Those Metrocard transfers always had existed. But then if this is new, how come we don't hear it on the R160 (E) @ 23rd and the R160 (F) @ Lex?

"Transfer is available to the (6)(N)(R) and (W) trains. A free transfer is also available to the (F) train by walking to Lexington Avenue/63rd Street and using your MetroCard."

 

Yeah, I think that's new. Eliminates confusion. Also implies that we can't read maps.

I was operating 6341 Wednesday pm going N/B at about 4:15-20 when I heard that announcement. The C/R also played the new ones about disabled, pregnant and elderly people. Also the one about sexual harassment, and protecting your electronic devices. At Pelham Parkway there's one about the BX 12 bus. The new announcements are being rolled out on the (2) equipment and at least one (5) train I've operated this week.

Put on a TA uniform, stand on the platform at 59/Lex during the AM rush, and be amazed at how many people can't read maps.

During a G.O. where people had to take a shuttle train to W4 from Grand St., transfer to the (F) to 34th St. Herald Square to get a Brooklyn-bound (D) train (which was operating over the (N) line, I believe, between 34th St and DeKalb)... well... I DON'T SPEAK CHINESE!!! I lost half my butcher book drawing diagrams and my voice saying "No... NO TRAINS TO BROOKLYN! Look, here..."

 

SHUTTLE => W4 => (F) => 34ST => (D) => BROOKLYN

 

shien shien ni!!! :tup:

 

PS ...just remembered, there was a new T/O working the shuttle that'd come from the IRT as a C/R telling people they could take the (A) from W4 to Atlantic-Pacific...:cry:

Maybe, Dianne Thompson is doing those, if it isn't Charlie Pellet. Thompson replaced the original "Connection is available to the PATH" on most R160A/B train sets.

They should put that announcement on the Jerome R142/A's, as the 4 stops at Fordham Rd, an important interchange to the SBS.

Oh, I heard the new (F) transfer announcement starting last Friday. It's a ridiculously long announcement. It finishes right before the doors open.
