What the **** are they doing????????!!?? :eek::eek::):mad::tdown:

 

So i'm going to pay more for mets tickets, subway fare, and LIRR, have to wait longer for the train, and not have as many options in case i need to talk to a person?

 

I am very mad at NY state government & (MTA) right now. :mad::mad::tdown:

It's so funny how they're raising rates AND reducing service.

Corruption at its finest.

 

What a joke. I can't believe they're getting rid of the (W). The (Z), eh, I sorta get, but not the (W). Unbelievable.

 

This infuriates me.

operating the N local in Manhattan north of Canal Street

 

So it appears the (R) will be handling the Canal Street local station, City Hall, Rector St and Whitehall Street on it's own. Like I figured, the (N) will still take the Manhattan Bridge to and from the city and switch to the local track after the Canal Street express stop.

I guess it's going to be mainly the IRT and the (J) covering The Financial District at night...

Also all B Div Lines exept the (L) will run every 10 Minutes instead of 8 Minutes on Wkends starting in June.

 

However some of them now run at a frequency of 12 minutes per train.

What's really got me pissed, the (N) is going local during the week and the SIR loses it's special service... WTF?

 

The (N) I understand, but the special (SIR) is useless. People can walk from the ferry to the ballpark; it's less than 3 minutes.

I have to agree with you, the ballpark is really close to the ferry terminal. IMO, that short stretch of track from St George to the Ballpark shouldn't even cost $2.

The (N)'s service pattern will now be 24/7. Local in Queens and Manhattan, goes over the bridge after Canal Street, then runs express. I still say run the (Q) Local as well but via the tunnel, and make the (R) run express in Manhattan and Brooklyn going over the bridge and via 63rd Street.

Now why would that make sense? All these service changes is enough. And making the (Q) local via Tunnel would not be good for the Brighton customers.

Most obvious and conspicuous is the absence of the (V) (Vacant) line on the hit list. Queens gets a pass...... again. ((G) doesn't count) :mad: Glad I don't live in NYC anymore. Most of us in here in NJ/PA have had to deal with sparatic bus/rail service for a long time. NY'rs have been spoiled for much too long and have always been chronic complainers.:cry: The only big city in the country with 27/7 service. BOO HOO. Try living in Bost, Philly, DC/Balto metro where the transit system shuts down after midnite.

(W)Long may you run

(NJT) :nec: :septa:
