Why they are using shuttle trains instead of shuttle buses?

Also the Q via Whitehall is taking forever! When those Q riders can have a break not going to the tunnel.

Checked this, thankfully, before doing a Columbus Circle to Coney Island trip. While waiting for the A or C at Columbus Circle (tranfer at Jay Street – MetroTech for the F) I noticed a D-Train with unchanged roll signs. Is it that hard to change them for the weekend? Also there were no visible posters on the station columns.

I never pay attention to these announcements!

Saturday I took a run up to the Bronx from Bay Ridge. Changed at 36th for the D in error, since it was running in sections. I wound up taking the N to 34th to catch the Bronx bound D section

I used to make that transfer all the time, walking down the ramps to the IND. I guess this 34 St connection was more important in the days before the Chrystie St Connection
