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

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

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!

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. The only good part is that since the weather has become more ideal (I am […]

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 […]

Your Weekly MTA Update: The Return of the Major Service Change

I am sorry to announce that the return of the freezing temperatures (last weekend was such a tease) will most likely not be the only thing getting on your nerves this weekend

Weekly Train Update: It’s Dejavu!

Weekly Train Update: It’s Dejavu!

Remember last week when the M train decided to end its service early between Myrtle Av and 71 Av? Or how last week (in the middle of the day) the L decided to really take its time and run only every 24 minutes between Broadway Junction and Rockaway Pkwy? Well, I hope you familiarized yourself […]

Ah, Bushwick in the Polar Vortex – where jumping giant slush puddles and fearing frostbite is the norm

Your Weekly Train Update: M is for Maladjusted

I think the only thing that makes me more aggravated than technology (don’t get me started on the jammed “lock” button on my cellphone) may be the MTA subway–I am especially looking at you L and M (J train wins “Train of the Year” by default because it consistently actually shows up

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for Ludicrous!

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for Ludicrous!

This week L is for Ludicrous (no, don’t get excited, not Ludacris, although I do love you Luda!) because quite frankly the Bushwick trains can just be so ridiculous and foolish sometimes

Your Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Localized

Your Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Localized

Starting late-night this weekend, the L train will run in two sections: 8th Ave to Broadway Junction, and Broadway Junction to Rockaway Parkway, running only every 24 minutes between Broadway Junction and Rockaway Parkway

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for “Loves It!”

Your Weekly Train Update: L is for “Loves It!”

Last week I just “Liked” (not “Loved!”) the MTA because, although there were no scheduled service changes, I was a bit skeptical of how service was actually going to be

I know that after the sticky situation the L train got itself into yesterday, the last word one would associate with the MTA is “like

So, I purposely waited until today to give you you train update because I was actually scared it would be jinxed if I gave it to you too early

Weekly MTA Update: The Terrible Train Triad

Looks like the L train will never be “normal” and will continue to confuse us with its really random service changes and interruptions

L Train Weekly Update: L Is for Looking Up! (Sort of)

That’s right – much to your disbelief this week I come bearing you some good news (don’t get too excited, I am saving the bad news for last)

Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Lazy

Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Lazy

Oh, L train. Back on that September afternoon when I first heard of your laundry list of future service changes I have to admit that I never thought it would really last this long. Our rocky relationship has now spanned almost two months and we have been through it all – delays caused by track […]

Your Halloween Edition of the L Train Update: L Is for Losing My Mind

Your Halloween Edition of the L Train Update: L Is for Losing My Mind

What is more creepy, nerve-wracking and suspenseful than Halloween ghosts, ghouls and goblins? That’s right, the L train! Many weeks ago, when we first heard word of the L train becoming a bit wonky, I don’t think any of us expected our subway woes to continue for this long. Sadly, this week is no different […]

Your Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Let Us Rejoice! (Temporarily.)

Your Weekly L Train Update: L Is for Let Us Rejoice! (Temporarily.)

L is for Let Us Rejoice…but just for a bit because, even though the L train is making a rare weekend appearance, it is instead going MIA during the week. Sure, L train, go on a hiatus when we need to do normal things like take the train home from work or head into the […]
