The MTA is planning to operate normal bus service tomorrow morning, but depending on road conditions, service may be curtailed as the day progresses. I’ll update the site with any weather-related service advisories as they are announced. And unfortunately this does mean that Manhattan end up getting service while the outer boroughs do not, but the fact that service cannot be provided to the outer boroughs does not mean that we should punish Manhattan too for the sake of spreading the pain and inconvenience around.
Your event tomorrow for the transit museum might not have too many people attending if this storm hits as big as it’s been predicted.
As now, it’s likely to be postponed, though the Museum will make the final call this morning.
Lex line was running fine during my morning commute (though I understand there was a rerouting around 9ish to deal with a sick customer). Some of the chatter I’ve seen indicates that this really could be a serious storm so please do pay attention!
All subways shut down… This is what happens when politicians make decisions in a bubble.
When it comes to purely local government in New York City, nothing stands in the way of progress more than the Community Boards. Late last week, in a move that would surprise no one, Community Board 15 out in Sheepshead Bay voted against Select Bus Service along the B44. The real problem with this Brooklyn Select Bus Service route isn’t its impact on parking or the supposed cost of painting some lines on the ground and building out some bus bulbs.
When time comes to evaluate the bus lanes, NYC DOT and the MTA aren’t bound by the Community Board 15 vote. Until the people of this State pass a statute outlining the limits of ED use, as people in dozens of other states have in the wake of Kelo, I will continue to say what I said above– that the cases were adjudicated, with painstaking speed, and ultimately held constitutional (in a ruling that was far from an outlier nationally). The plan out there calls for SBS in mixed traffic if I remember correctly, and Nostrand Ave is pretty wide south of Ave V. If the CB had some sense on transit issues, they could have proposed routing the SBS to the Sheepshead Bay or Brighton Beach subway stations, where it should be successful barring any technicalities. Sometimes that the DOT can get things wrong too, and I can admit I’m overgeneralizing with my comment about all CBs. First, I never said that access to the Brighton Line from that part of Brooklyn will not help accessibility there.
No said you shouldn’t have the freedom to express what you feel is right if you have some knowledge and are somewhat familiar with passenger travel patterns in the area and are not just planning by looking at a map and making a proposal just because it looks nice. The only technical problem with your route to Sheepshead Bay Station is the fact that Voorhies Avenue is gridlock on weekdays between Ocean Avenue and Sheepshead Bay Station between 4 and 7 PM. Serving the Station and Knapp Street really doesn’t make sense when you realize the purpose of the B44 turning right to Knapp Street. To clear up any confusion, I meant to say in both of the routes I suggested, Sheepshead Bay station would be the terminal; the Plumb Beach loop would be served in both directions like the S60 along the Staten Island Expressway.
Theresa Scavo and the board certainly have a passion for their community, that cannot be denied. If there were a left turn signal, not only would it make it safer, but U-turns could also be allowed to access the Belt.
See, I didn’t know all of that, and I would not have noticed the problem was the two lanes on CI Avenue. Well, I read the linked articles, and the fact that CB15 had been trying to get the DOT and MTA to admit how many parking spaces would be lost should not have been omitted from this post. In a perfect world, yes but realistically, No, since now is when the communities have their leverage.
If this basic info seems an invasion of privacy, then collect and publish the info anonymously, so, for example CB0, 25% own their home, 25% live rent-regulated, 50% rent at market rate. I just read the pdf you cited and am very suspicious of the MTA’s finding of 10% fare evasion.
Your condescension would work a lot better if you didn’t refer to the Daily Fishwrapper News as a good source. The problem with the Daily News report is that it doesn’t offer up a baseline percentage for fare evasion. The Daily News estimated an average of 30 fare evaders per peak hour at each of the three stations surveyed.
Given the high amount of shopping trips along Fordham Boulevard, I highly doubt this is the case. Bus Rapid Transit in theory is a good idea but as usual when the MTA attempts it, the execution is flawed. The Daily News study which showed huge fare evasion was based on observations for about 8 hours by several people if I remember correctly. Please tell me how the MTA estimate of 10%, a figure they pull out of the air is any more reliable. I thought they are not required to present the driver with a receipt but only must present it to an inspector or officer upon request.
I actually favor decentralization of government in New York, but I could care less about community boards Bloomberg wants to abolish them, and I’m not sure if that would be a travesty or would have no impact at all.
This SBS route will definitely be a useful addition to the system, but I never understood why they didn’t pick the Utica Ave corridor. The argument about the community boards resonates with me, but I think it was a bit too damning. With the B46, Malcolm X Boulevard and Broadway are narrower than Utica Avenue, so that may be a reason. While elected CBs would be best, the appointed CBs are in practice quite close to their community. While BRT works best on wide roads, where there’s room for a median, sometimes there need to be compromises. The width of the lanes on Utica and Malcolm X is such that it’s possible to squeeze four driving lanes and two parking lanes.
If you checked it on Google Earth you obviously were looking at the wrong street or in the wrong place. Measuring Utica’s width from sidewalk to sidewalk in google maps, I got widths between 38 and 44 feet.
If you got rid of the parking lanes, you could have one bus lane and one driving lane in each direction. All local buses, including articulated buses, will have chains or snow tires installed by tomorrow’s PM rush hour.
You can blame climate change, but it’s mostly because we never had as many NYC teachers living in the far reaches of the Hudson Valley or Suffolk County. No doubt there is a logic to shutting down some segments, maybe even scaling back bus service, but most of the subway network isn’t threatened by snow. If they cant get to work, they cant drive your train or mumble at you through 2 inches of glass.


I’m not a meteorologist but I work in a facility that has hundreds of them (seriously) and while severe weather forecasting has advanced by leaps and bounds over the last 20-30 years, winter precip is still tough. It would mean any employee that stays home during a state of emergency cannot be fired, aside from emergency management people. As Ben Fried from Streetsblog meticulously detailed in May, CB15 is opposed to safer streets for seniors and feels that SBS pre-boarding receipts would lead to an immeasurable increase in paper trash on the floor. They can disregard it as the bitter rantings of an auto-centric neighborhood that can’t stand to lose some lane and parking space for the good of everyone else. The CBs do annoying things like oppose the Atlantic Yards landgrab and the Columbia expansion. But as those examples show, if a Community Board stands against everything, eventually it will stand against the right thing.
By who – the same hacks who said banning gay marriage was okay because marriage was for procreation? If you not familiar with my analogy, on Dancing with the Stars, Kate and her professional partner, Tony Dovolani, had some heated arguments during dance training.
But when the professionals try to explain that the impact is quite minimal, they aren’t having any of it. Please tell me why access to the Brighton Line from that part of Brooklyn will not help transit accessibility there. Shouldn’t I have the freedom to express what I feel is right if I have some degree of familiarity with it?
Such info would help the citizens determine if they feel that the Boards correctly reflect the composition of the neighborhood. The reporters claimed they counted 89 fare-evaders after spending one hour at each of three stations during peak hours but didn’t say how many people paid the fare. At least a third of the vending machines are either totally out of order or do not dispense tickets.
A southern crosstown route for the SBS (like the B6) would have been my second choice behind the B46. They usually vote based on the wishes of the most politically active residents, and they represent the local power brokers. The streets would then have two SBS lanes (in the center, as is standard practice), two regular driving lanes, and two parking lanes. The last time a storm of this magnitude struck, passengers were stranded for hours on an N train stuck in Brooklyn and an A left near Howard Beach. Trains will be stored on underground express tracks, and all express service is likely to run local.
Forecasting is better, but what you get at your house is completely different if there is a one degree difference at 5000’. They vote against protected bike lanes and true rapid transit bus lanes because their cars need valuable on-street real estate for below-market parking spots. The B44 already serves its purpose; it gets riders to the nearest subway line while passing through some business corridors. Let’s do away with them entirely and replace them with a Bloomberg-appointed Commissar. That doesn’t make it a better form of government, and your example is the other extreme.
I’m just saying that from an urbanist point of view, rather than a legal one, Columbia and Ratner have both engaged in a landgrab. And in the end, her dancing was quite poor as she displayed little ability to dance and perform (compared to the other celebrities).
For the record, I have never taken the B44 east of Nostrand Avenue and Shore Parkway but I have taken public transportation to many other parts of the city to be able to say I’m comfortable to judge it. Third, I said there may be technicalities that prevent an SBS route from working in the BMT Brighton Line area, such as narrow streets in the Sheepshead Bay Road shopping district. It’s all up to them whether they think public transportation is better than private transportation. Ridership on that route is now 46,000 per weekday so a fare evasion figure of 10 percent would mean 4600 riders per day. Utica at the time ranked second in the city (it only became first in 2009), Nostrand fifth.
The only problem would be at stations, where the parking would be removed to make room for raised boarding strips. Since then, the MTA has been very proactive in managing subway service and its storm response. What you really need to do is keep looking at the forecast because I promise you it will change. Few, if any, people ride from Sheepshead Bay to Williamsburg, and that probably won’t change much with the introduction of Select Bus Service.
One of the famous arguments saw Tony explaining to her that he teaches dancing for a living. For what it’s worth, my route would have the current B44 route from the north until Nostrand and Avenue Z.
Not to defend the no-left-turn rule, but the DOT must have thought there would be enough traffic from northbound CI Avenue and turning cars from east- and westbound Guider Avenue to cause gridlock that a left turn onto Guider from southbound CI Ave. This measure would alleviate situations (CB7 on Upper West Side anyone?) where a few long-serving dinosaurs dominate key committees, intimidate newer members, and squash new ideas.
The bus lane is for the most part useless and if we have traffic signal priority it’s news to me since I cannot see any difference in traffic light sequencing. The real travesty is that once they started adding new routes, they went for 34th and not Utica. I am not as enthusiastic as others here are about the M reroute along the Sixth Avenue Line, except that it will make for a more comfortable but not necessarily quicker commute from upper Bushwick and Ridgewood. The problem is first of all what route would you take and how would you incorporate the Knapp Street loop? If the bus were not to serve Knapp Street, it would continue south and turn right on Voorhies Avenue, possibly stop at Bedford Av. Did I make the recommendation that B13 service be kept to Wyckoff Hospital, which is just a few feet from where I live? It is painfully slow, has less capacity than the Flyer D60, it’s climate control system cannot cope with hot humid weather and the three door feature actually slows down boarding since sensors do not allow the doors to close when someone is standing near them. Passengers, especially kids have figured this out and will stand their holding the bus up while friends get receipts. If it goes to Knapp Street, this route would divert according to the current B44 route along Shore Parkway S.
