If you’ve been jonesing for a podcast from me, you’re in luck this week. My friend Nicole Badstuber was in town from London a few weeks ago, and we recorded an edition of London Reconnections’ On Our Line podcast. The podcast is targeted to a London audience, and Nicole and I discussed the current state of transit in New York City. Nothing regular readers hear will come as much of a surprise, but if you’d like to hear my voice for a change and give London Reconnections some love, mosey on over to this page to listen to the podcast. You also can listen via the embedded player below:

I’m still working on bringing back a regular podcast for this site, but that idea is on hold until I can get a new laptop. I expect it to return early next year at this point.

As New Jersey Transit gears up to reopen Hoboken for some trains on Monday and the agency prepares for its first board meeting in months, the National Transportation Safety Board has issued the first of what will be many reports on the recent train crash. The initial press release is simply a bullet point list of facts the NTSB has discerned from data recorders and videos of the crash. We know the train was going 21 mph when it collided with the bumper. We know the train had been going 8 mph approximately 38 seconds before the crash, and we know the throttled shifted from idle to 4. The NTSB has not yet provided any analysis, and it is premature to speculate on the causes of the crash yet. I’ll have more as we know more.

Now, the services advisories for this weekend’s subway trips:

So the D train cricket lady was apparently all an act. At least that’s what she told Fusion late on Friday afternoon. How frustratingly maddening. She should have to clean up out subway stations with a toothbrush for the next five years to make amends for her disruptive routine.

As you let that frustration stew, consider purchasing a ticket to attend Transportation Camp NYC 2016. The so-called un-conference runs all day on Saturday, September 24, and it is, I promise you, a good time for those interested in a variety of transportation-related topics. Attendees get to set the agenda, and the day ends up being a veritable “who’s who” of the transit world. After a day full of networking and panels, there’s a happy hour at 5 p.m. and events on the Thursday and Friday prior to the conference. Get more details and your tickets right here. Act fast, though, as there are only 111 tickets remaining. I’ll be there, leading a session (though the topic is still TBD).

Meanwhile, as August draws to an end, the service advisories continue apace. These comes to from the MTA and are subject to change without notice. Check signs; listen to announcements.

Bus-stituting over perfectly functional New York City Transit subway lines is a very Port Authority thing to do. (Click to enlarge)

Bus-stituting over perfectly functional New York City Transit subway lines is a very Port Authority thing to do. (Click to enlarge)

Due to a variety of circumstances — a post-Sandy rebuild, Positive Train Control installation — the Port Authority has had to shut down one of the two trans-Hudson PATH tunnels at various points over the past few years. The agency has come under fire for not providing alternate service, and they rang up quite a bill for ferry subsidies when the WTC tunnel was out of service. Now, with PTC installation coming to the 33rd St. line, service from Hoboken to Midtown will be out every weekend between now and late December.

As part of the service plan, the Port Authority will run free shuttle buses per the map above. Trains will run up 6th Ave. and down 7th Ave. Buses won’t pick passengers up at the new WTC Transit Hub because it’s not really a transit hub, and the buses will mirror existing New York City Transit buses and, of course, the subway. Why, you might ask, is one transit agency bustituting above another transit agency’s perfectly fine service? This is a good question, and it highlights how our region’s separate transit agencies cannot and often do not cooperate.

Allowing PATH riders to transfer to the subway and vice versa is simply an economic exchange. The PA could pay the MTA, and the MTA could provide free transfers. One obstacle is how the MTA can’t exchange PATH’s SmartLink cards, but these are solvable operational problems, not intractable obstacles. I don’t know if the PA approached the MTA for a solution; a press official from the MTA is working on finding this out for me. But for some reason, more buses are going to fill the streets of Manhattan when preexisting transit options are plentiful because the PA and MTA can’t cooperate. It’s simply silly.

These weekend changes are necessary because of capital construction work on the MTA New York City Transit subway system. This work is part of NYC Transit’s ongoing Capital Rebuilding Program aimed at upgrading and maintaining our tracks, stations and signal systems in order to continue to provide our customers with safe and reliable service. For more information on the 2015-2019 Capital Program log on to www.mta.info/capital. Customers who rely on these lines should allow for additional travel time.

Meanwhile, we have subway changes for this weekend. These come to me from the MTA and are subject to change without notice. Check signs; listen to announcements. Everything is listed after the jump. Read More→

Spend your weekend designing your own NYC subway map. This site’s been this week’s transit phenomenon, and it’s easy to see why. Correct the wrongs of the NYC subway or build new subway lines faster than the MTA can. It’s quite the addictive site, and you can read all about how it’s inspired by Robert Moses, not exactly a transit booster, in this essay describing the idea. If you’re so inclined, share your results via the Second Ave. Sagas Facebook page. I’d love to see everyone’s ideas.

Anyway, you know the drill: These come from the MTA and may change without notice. Check signs; listen to announcements. Do your thing.

Hot town, summer in the city. Nothing rings true more than the Lovin’ Spoonful’s lyric right about it. It’s stifling in New York, and I’ve fled to the slightly cooler climes of the Berkshires for the weekend. If you’re stuck in our concrete jungle this weekend, head to the beach. Find some shade. See a movie. Stay cool.

But if you’re going anywhere, pay attention to the service advisories. As always, these are courtesy of the MTA and may change without warning. Check signs; listen to announcements. We’ll talk buses and new fare payment systems next week, and on Monday, expect an update on the status of the Second Ave. Subway. The MTA’s board committee meeting materials for this week’s sessions have a big old gap where the project’s update should be. Is it a sign of delay? Whatever the reason, the MTA is keeping this one tight-lipped this week.

Next week, I’ll tackle the MTA’s new fare payment plans and a familiar name entering with a familiar technology. It certainly would be something if, after all these years, the MTA ends up adopting this technology, but that’s a conversation for next week.

If you’re looking for some weekend reading, the city named Adam Giambrone the head of the Brooklyn-Queens Connector, and New York Magazine published quite the profile. Giambrone, as city officials assured me, is certainly an expert in planning streetcars, but he carries with him some scandal-plagued years in Toronto. He also doesn’t seem quite familiar with New York City and will be thrown into the fire of a tempestuous project that many are eying skeptically for a variety of reasons.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of weekend service changes to go around. As always, these come to me from the MTA and may change without notice. Check signs; listen to announcements; stay out of the heat.
