Your Weekly Train Update: Here We Go Again on Our Own

Upon initial glance of this weekend’s train service changes the first thing that popped into my mind was Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again” (I know, random, it has been a long week) but really…here [we] go again on our own: and with a little help from the L train. That is right – this weekend […]

Your Weekly Train Update: April Showers Have Brought…May Service Changes!

Ooof! This is NOT our week – between the rain-a-thon just a couple of days ago and the L train’s slow daytime service, you would think there would be nowhere left to go but up, right? WRONG! You heard it – the M and J train will be skipping town this weekend and won’t be back until May 26 (for what? I do not know

Your Weekly Train Update: Endless “Service Change” Vortex

Your Weekly Train Update: Endless “Service Change” Vortex

Welcome to Bushwick- home of the repetitive subway service changes and interruptions! Week after week, the same service changes are going down- whether it is delays, skipped stops or suspended service. The worst part is there seems to be no end in sight (Noooooo…)! Last week there was some hope of the M and J getting […]

Weekly Train Update: Same Service Change, Different Day

You know, by nature I am really an optimist – always looking on the bright side of things and making the best out of situations (unless I am hungry – that is a whole other state of mind I can’t even get into). But I am really starting to lose faith in the Bushwick trains […]

Your Weekly Train Update: The Service Changes That Just Keep on Giving (Us Headaches)

Well, looks like even Madonna moving into the neighborhood can’t even make the Bushwick trains run normal – and if The Madgesty can’t then who can? (If you don’t know I am kidding than you are a bit late to the game. Kidding about Madonna that is, not the trains. They unfortunately still suck). And not […]

Your Weekly Train Update: A Tale of Three (Incredibly Frustrating) Trains

Once upon a time there were three trains located in Bushwick (the Z is a figment of your imagination). Anyways, these aforementioned trains never showed up. The end. Okay, obviously the Bushwick subway saga is a lot more complicated than that and the above may be a dramatization. However, you can’t deny that the service […]

Your Weekly Train Update: Spring is for Sunshine, Flowers…and Service Interruptions!

So here is to warmweather and frustrating mass transit! Happy riding! Ahh the first day of Spring was yesterday – warmer temperatures, clearer skies and :record scratch: more train interruptions and service changes. I guess we can’t win them all.

Your Weekly Train Update: Some Things Never Change (Unfortunately)

[contextly_auto_sidebar id=”w994BMLQTU4nxoPoogZCne2AA3r8riFq”] Looks like the L train (and M…and J) want to take part in Flashback Friday and revisit old service interruptions. It has gotten to the point where service changes are nothing out of the ordinary and instead of crossing my fingers that the Bushwick trains will be running smoothly each week/weekend I have […]
