<4><5>

Recommended Posts

Foolish (MTA) removed the diamond service back in 2005. <5> needs to come back!

 

Heh, well, it's kind of redundant to have the 5 in Brooklyn a diamond service. After all, it's not an express version of itself.

Doesn't matter....it was better than way having a <5> b/c it was a Bronx Thru Express to/from 3rd Avenue-149th Street and East 180th Street and limited rush hour service to Nereid Avenue-238th Street and rush hours service to Brooklyn College-Flatbush Avenue!

The Diamond 5 in the Bronx makes sense though.

@Dx Local- the 7 uses diamonds, not just during rush hours.

I never knew that and id thats the case then it should Just Be The 11 so then they could use all diamonds for rush hour

 

No need to, it's more or less the same route. The only difference is that one is local and one makes select stops.

No the 11 Was a Circle... Or better Yet Move The Dead (9) to the <7>

 

There is no need for redesignation. The current set up has a few flaws, but they are generally understandable. If the 7 extends and branches into 2 distinct routes in Queens, then yes, there will be justification for a separate service.

Exactly... that's why we have those green and red LEDs in the destination signs.

Because the (7)<7> both use the whole route... the (C) only uses most, not all of the (A) route.
