NICE BUS SHUTTLES

In 2011, NICE (Nassau Inter County Express) took over from MTA Long Island Bus. Philosophically, I USUALLY SUPPORT Private over Public. Unfortunately, I think NICE BUS has made TOO MANY Mistakes & I think MTA Long ILsnad Bus should take over Nassau & Suffolk County Transit.

NICE Bus Operates 3 Shuttle Routes, 2 of them used to be Bus Routes, & 1 New Shuttle Route. I would like to address these 3 Routes in this Blog.

The First Shuttle is the Mercy Medical Shuttle. This Shuttle USED to be the N17 Route. The N17 operated between the Hempstead Transit Center, which is located across the Street from the Hempstead LIRR Station, & the Rockville Centre LIRR Station. The N17 served Hempstead, Mercy Hospital & Rockville Centre. Currently, this Shuttle…

In the last 3 Blogs, I gave my thoughts & feelings about the Queens Bus Redesign.

MY REACTION TO THE DRAFT PROPOSAL FOR THE EXPRESS BUS ROUTES IN THE QUEENS BUS REDESIGN

On December 30th, 2019, the MTA Released their Draft Proposal for the Queens Bus Redesign. In this Blog, I will give My Reaction to the Express Bus Redeign of Queens County (Queens).

In this Blog, we will discuss Bus Depots & Bus Route Assignments throughout New York City as well as My Proposals on this Subject. Let's First understand some definitions. A Split Route is a bus route that has runs that are almost equally split or has a weekday/weekend service split between two bus depots. This is most common with LTD/LCL routes, but is not limited to these factors. Rush Hour Route is a bus route that has Rush Hour Peak (6:30-9:30AM and 3:30-8PM) runs assigned to it from a depot other than its home depot. School Route is a bus route that has a few trips to/from a school along a route assigned to it from a depot other than its home depot. Service As Assigned (SAA) refers to a depot that has run(s) where an one way trip is m…

NYCT QUEENS BLVD LINE

Now we wil talk about the Queens Blvd Line, which s Currently the E, F, M & R Lines. We Will also include the Crosstown Line, which is the G Train. We will start with the Crosstown line & then discuss the Queens Blvd Line followed by MY Proposals.

The last time I addressed the G Train was when we discussed the Fulton Line (A & C Trains) & the Culver Line (F Train). Just as a Review, The G Train USED to end @ Smith-9th Streets. In 2013, It was extended to Church Avenue, Which I believe was a Good First Step. As I Stated in My Blog about the Culver Line, I believe the G Should be EXTENDED to Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue & would be a 24/7 LOCAL supplement for the F Train. Since there are ONLY 3 Tracks between Church Avenue & Avenue X, the F T…
