    One thing I would do now if I were Cuomo is order ANY changes scheduled for NEXT Saturday (June 7) that affect the E, F, J or ANY subway that connects to those lines at any point be suspended in order to accommodate people traveling by a combination of subway and LIRR or bus to and from Belmont Park for the Belmont Stakes, with extra LIRR service specifically between Sutphin Boulevard (transfer point between the E, J and LIRR, with the LIRR service on top of extra service from Penn Station) with extra special express shuttle buses between the Archer Avenue (E/J) station and Belmont Park AND the 179th Street (F) station and Belmont Park.

    With as many as 140,000 expected for next Saturday at Belmont Park for The Belmont Stakes to see California Chrome try for the Triple Crown, it would be wise to do such as well as also work on deals with SEPTA and NJ Transit to provide joint extra service between 30th Street in Philly and Trenton (on SEPTA) and Trenton and Penn Station (on NJ Transit).

      My God, what? Nobody is going to do SEPTA to Trenton, NJ Transit to Penn, and then LIRR to Belmont.

      Also, as you’ve done before here and on other boards, you drastically overstate the importance and impact of horse racing events. If 140,000 show up to Belmont, the vast vast majority of them will drive, and no funky service patterns will change that.

      • Walt Gekko says:

        They did for Smarty Jones in 2004.

        And yes, people actually do SEPTA OR Patco/RiverLINE to Trenton/NJT to Penn Station/LIRR to Belmont, especially on Belmont Stakes day.

    Got caught up in the G/F changes last night. Seems unnecessarily cruel to me to do more than one change on the same line in the same direction at the same time. Now I see why people complain about the G so much.

    To go from Bedford-Nostrand on the G to the 4th Ave line, I would have had to do: G to Hoyt, A to Jay, F to 7th Ave, F to 4th-9th, and then get the D/N/R.

    What I ended up doing is walking from Hoyt-Schermerhorn to Atlantic and paying another swipe. Whereas if only one of these changes had happened I probably would have just taken the extra time/ride.

    • Tower18 says:

      Getting off at the Fulton G would have been a lot closer for that maneuver. Or you could have done Hoyt-Schermerhorn G to Hoyt St 2/3 to Atlantic, and then on from there.

    • Simon says:

      It’s not possible to do only one of those service changes at the same time. If one of the local tracks is out of service, the F must run express and the G has to be cut back.

    Well the bus lanes on 125th are here and (surprise surprise) are generally worthless as delivery trucks and even NYPD completely ignore the paint and use the lanes to double park.

  4. Michael says:

    Service to the westside of Manhattan is really screwed up this weekend with #1 trains being replaced by a series of shuttle buses north of 96th Street to Van Cortlandt Park, with directions to take the C-train that is by-passing westside stations, as well as A-trains.
