New York Subway sucks (New York Subway is testing vacuum cleaners)
24 Jan 2017



USA: New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority has started testing a prototype track vacuum cleaner from Neu Railways as part of its Track Sweep initiative to reduce the amount of litter on metro tracks.

A second prototype unit is due to be deployed within the next two weeks. Tests are to last 30 to 45 days on sections of the Subway network in Manhattan and Queens, with more cleaners to be ordered if the prototypes prove successful

A report from the office of the orange indicates priority for both phases 2 AND 3 of SAS. Of course, talk is cheap, especially his.

Well he would get them financed even quicker if he funneled in the 10+ billions he's bound to blow on the "wall"

Second Avenue Subway Relieves Crowding on Neighboring Lines
NYTimes


Quote:
So far, the new subway line on the Upper East Side of Manhattan appears to be helping — the number of riders on the closest line, the Lexington Avenue line, has fallen, though plenty of people still jockey to squeeze onto trains.

The long-delayed Second Avenue line opened to great fanfare on Jan. 1. In the first few weeks of the year, ridership at its four stations has grown steadily, from about 83,000 on the first day to more than 150,000 last Wednesday — short of the 200,000 daily riders that officials predicted, but an encouraging sign that New Yorkers are using the line.

At stops on the Lexington Avenue line between Grand Central Terminal and 110th Street, ridership fell by about 11 percent, or by nearly 88,000 trips, on an average weekday in January, according to an analysis by The New York Times of data from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Ridership fell at every stop, but the greatest drop was at the 86th Street stop, which had about 28,000 fewer trips, or about 24 percent fewer riders, on an average weekday this month, compared with January 2016.

Some subway riders on the Nos. 4, 5 and 6 trains that run along Lexington Avenue have noticed a difference. As Charlie Allen waited for an express train at the 86th Street stop on a recent morning, he said the crowds appeared to have improved slightly.

“It’s still crowded,” said Mr. Allen, 31, a lawyer who lives in East Harlem. “I haven’t had to not get on trains as often, but they’re still very crowded when I do get on them.”

Do the statistics for Lex/63 include the F, or just the SAS services?

See, I said that.
And it's working.
And I like that ridership is even in the ballpark of "predictions" already.
And that there is a strong net gain overall, not just losses from Lex.

It includes the F, but for the purposes of this analysis, you are measuring the decrease in swipes at 59th street on Lex and the increase at 63rd / Lex.

At any rate, it is still too soon to make any hard conclusions about the affect of SAS, especially since this is only phase I. The REAL benefits don't come until at least phase II.

That's just false, it's already helping, having nearby almost redundant stations near some of the busiest stations in the system (a la 86 Lex) is going to help, and is.

Not only is there no masses crowding onto already full trains from the bronx toward downtown thru the UES, there are also less UES bound crowding onto bronx bound trains downtown.

MTA this week is using an -branded shuttle for Fastrack service between 63rd/Lexington and Queensbridge , stopping at Roosevelt Island along the way.

http://web.mta.info/nyct/service/fas...serviceChanges

Shuttle runs every 20 min overnight.

The S is running in place of the F.

Hmmm... am I the only one who notices that 6 Av now has the unfortunate acronym of "B D S M"?

This already existed in 2011.

Now will the 42nd street station on the 7 Line ever occur? A lot of developments are impatiently awaiting that infill station that hasn't happened.

Well, I guess building 42/10Av depends on whether the orange wants to give them some dosh.

Perhaps let him build a Trump hotel nearby and he'll reconsider?

So I was playing around on Brand New Subway...

Wouldn't a Nostrand Avenue extension make end to end times on the 2 a bit too long, probably upwards of two hours?

I was actually playing with the idea of adding a fourth track to White Plains and killing 5 service on Nostrand. That, along with the 4 and/or 5 taking over New Lots full-time and the 3 going back to a shuttle between 135 and 148 on Lenox, would allow the 2 exclusive use of all its track, and allow it to ramp up capacity as well.

A few minutes could also be saved on the 5 by non-stopping 149/GC on new bypass tracks, with separate platforms at 3Av/149, and joining the 4 at 138 like it does now.

That could probably put an end to almost all interlining on the IRT,*with the exception of the 4 5 on Lex because it kinda needs it. The 6 probably can try to hit 30 tph as well?
