So with the NYC Bike Tour going full swing, the MTA doesn’t let riders catch the “R” train at Whitehall St (not sure why). The IRT 7th Ave line is choked with bikers getting off the SI Ferry, so I walk up to Bowling Green to find out the Lex Ave trains are all running local. No prob, so after 15 mins of stop-and-go with bikers, strollers, tourists, etc, I get off at Union Square to catch the BMT to Times Square. Well, the Broadway line is a clusterfuck because of signal problems at 59th/Lex, so trains are crawling and stopping at each station for 5 mins. After a 20 min ride from 14th St to 34th St, I finally catch the IND to 42nd and walk to Times Square. Total travel time from South Ferry to Times Square: 55 mins. In my whole life in NYC, including many subway rides in the woeful-1970s, I never had to take a train on each division (IRT, BMT, IND) just to get to a destination.

This is what happens when you try to leave the car at home and do the right thing. Next time I drive, and I don’t give a rat’s ass about doing the right thing.

You didn’t have to take a train on each division. You could have taken the 1 train the whole way and gotten there in half the time or less. Even if the R had been running, the 1 is faster. (And if you think South Ferry is bad with bikes, imagine the narrow platforms at Whitehall!)

I’m impressed that your car never encounters traffic jams.
