Archive for Service Advisories

Coming next week: I take a look at NJ Transit’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week, and Gov. Chris Christie’s arrogantly political reaction to it. As you can imagine, I am far, far less than impressed with Christie’s comments.

Before I jump into the service advisories, allow me to revisit Wednesday’s post on deferred maintenance. I neglected to link to Neil deMause’s recent epic in the Village Voice regarding the MTA’s funding woes and its effect on deferred maintenance. It’s one of those so-called longreads, but it’s well worth the time, whether you’re idling away some hours in the weekend sun or sitting down for some quality reading time. Neil also wrote sidebars on the 7 line extension and the untimely death of the Second System in the 1920s.

As you ponder the system’s past, here’s your immediate future. It features lots of weekend service changes.

With the Gateway Tunnel project back in the news (more on that next week), the idea of a new Penn Station, a seemingly inseparable part of that plan, is creeping through the coverage. At some point in the not-to-distant future, various stakeholders will have to start having serious conversations about these plans, but for now, we’re still in that stage where ideas are being tossed around left and right.

One intriguing thought comes to us from Alon Levy. He first suggested doing away with the Penn Station South element of the Gateway proposal all together and simply running trains through to Grand Central. And then, earlier this week, he offered up his take on the debate over the future of the current Penn Station: Turn into a hole in the ground.

His idea is fairly simple: The street would serve as a mezzanine, and there’s no real need for the anachronistic amenities of a head house. This ain’t, in other words, the 1930s. Despite his intentions as admittedly trollish at the start, Levy later offered up a technical defense of his plan, and it’s well worth your read. The problem is one of politics. Our region’s politicians prefer monuments to themselves and often eschew practical and less costly approaches. A covered hole in the ground wouldn’t lend itself to a fanciful ribbon-cutting, and those calling for a new Penn Station will say Levy’s idea is hardly worth the Moynihan Station name. What a shame.

Meanwhile, it’s Friday night, and you know what that means. Click through for the service changes. Read More→

I’ve written extensively about Governor Cuomo’s attitude toward the subways. A self-proclaimed car guy, Cuomo doesn’t seem to understand the importance a healthy transit network plays in the growth and sustainability of New York City and its effect on the New York State economy. And so Cuomo has been unwilling to listen to advocate call for solutions to the MTA’s capital funding gap, and the fear of massive fare hikes or service cuts loom large while low-hanging fruit, such as the Move New York plan, are left in limbo.

To draw attention to the MTA’s funding plights and the pressure record ridership is placing on the system, the Riders Alliance has previously invited Cuomo for a rush-hour subway ride, and the governor has met the invitation with silence. So the advocates took matters into their own hands and dragged Cuomo — or at least a facsimile of him — onto the subway. Take a look at Streetsfilm’s accompanying video. It is an excellent piece of theatrical advocacy. If only the real Cuomo were paying any attention.

Meanwhile, there are weekend changes on every line except the Shuttles and the G train. They follow after the jump. Read More→

If you read one thing this weekend, check out the service advisories from the MTA. If you read two things, make sure to check out Cap’n Transit’s post tying together Select Bus Service flashing lights and the TWU’s response to the failure-to-yield law.

So two pieces of news — one big and one small. First, the big. I’m getting married this weekend! 

Second, this is the weekend the MTA is extending weekend J train service to Broad St. For riders of this line, the weekend extension provided a connection to Fulton St. and its slate of trains. It also eliminates a transfer at Chambers St. for access to Lower Manhattan. It’s ultimately not clear how many passengers will benefit from the service. The MTA claims 14,000 weekend riders will enjoy this service, but even if that’s high, sending the J a few stops further south is a low-cost customer-friendly improvement that will help those who need and use it. 

Anyway, it’s a light weekend of service changes. Travel safe. I’ll see you on the other side of getting married.

The first train to roll down the Second Ave. tracks. (Photo: MTA Capital Construction / Rehema Trimiew)

This week was a bit of a milestone for the Second Ave. Subway. While we were debating the fate of the Q train, the MTA quietly announced that the first train had rolled down the tracks underneath Second Ave. The work train you see above took the ride from the old tracks to the new near 63rd St. At some point soon — hopefully by the end of 2016 — New York City will finally have a piece of the Second Ave. Subway. What the future holds is up to Gov. Cuomo who appears unwilling to act and unwilling to lead.

As you mull over our governor’s abandonment of the city’s transit system, get ready for weekend work. You know the drill.

I picked a busy week to take vacation. This week’s Amtrak incident is horrific, and it’s led to many more unanswered questions and issues with national rail service. The fallout will reverberate for some time. We’ve learned as well that the city’s subway system is dirtier than the MTA claims — though that’s hardly a surprise to anyone who rides regularly. I’ll have full pieces on this and more starting Monday when I return from vacation.

If you’ve wondered where I’ve been, I’ve spent the past week in Berlin and Stockholm. I’ve posted a series of photos on both my Instagram account and Facebook page. The Stockholm Tunnelbana is breathtaking, but Berlin’s Ghost Stations are just an incredible piece of fascinating history.

Those running the Brooklyn Half tomorrow don’t have subway advisories to combat early in the morning, but the weather doesn’t sound too cooperative. Stay dry; run hard. I’ll see you all on Monday.

(As an administrative note, many of you noted mistakes in last week’s service advisory post. These are sent to me via NYC Transit, and I just copy and paste them for this post. If there are errors, take it up with Transit, and check signs in your local subway station before planning weekend journeys.)
