On the last weekends of the D/F reroutes on Feb 24-26 - I would think conductors on other routes would do better than Week 1 from Feb 10-13, nope - - not much better on Week 3. And on one of the last weekends of the A/C Cranberry Tube diversions, most conductors on the 2/3 lines were still announcing the A/C transfers at Fulton and Park Place
Starting with the D and F diversions, I went to work on Sunday night, Feb 26 - - first up is the E train at 7th Ave which is a transfer point to the D train - - as in my prior observations, I selected certain stations which have a transfer to a line which is not running and no other alternative service is available or the alternative service would significantly add more time than the existing service where the wrong announcement took place. In the case of the E observations at 7th Ave and 53rd st station, the customer coming off the E train would be forced to wait for the next E train since there is no D service. At least the conductors on the E should say something about no D service at 7th Ave, only 2 out of 4 passed - - both were World Trade Center-bound (southbound) trains. All times are PM
6:40 - - Northbound, car #9866 - - Failed
6:49 - - Southbound, car #9554 - - Passed
7:02 - - Northbound, car #9404 - - Failed
7:16 - - Southbound, car #9910 - - Passed
Next up was the 7 train at 5th Ave again, a transfer only to the D and F through the passage, only one out of 5 passed
7:36 - - Northbound, car #7545 - - Failed
7:48 - - Southbound, car #7924 - - Failed
7:51 - - Northbound, car #7234 - - Failed
7:55 - - Southbound, car #7269 - - Passed
8:07 - - Northbound, car #7462 - - Failed
Finally, the 4/6 at Bleecker Street - - Broadway/Lafayette for the D and F (4 trains ran local to Brooklyn Bridge). While there were only 3 observations, they all failed.
8:21 - - Southbound 6, car #2100 - - Failed, didn't say anything
8:34 - - Northbound 6, car #7628 - - Failed
8:47 - - Southbound 4, car #1135 - - Failed
And why continue to suggest the D for service between Manhattan and Brooklyn on the 4 line - - the D does not connect directly with the 4 because it is running on the A and C lines -- - it should have been the F between Manhattan and Brooklyn because you can transfer between the 4 and F at Canal St and again at Atlantic Ave for the 3 train.
Other thing to note, on an Northbound F train, 9:20 PM car #9517, the condctor manually announced 1 at Times Square and 5 at Union Square - - neither one was running at that time - - no service on the 1 line and 5 trains did not operate south of 42nd Street-Grand Centra;.
On March 11 there was no A/C and 4/5 service at Fulton St, - - of the observations along the 2 and 3 lines at Fulton, only 3 out of 11 passed. After a year and half of the A/C closures at Fulton and the start of the 4/5 closures, you would think conductors would learn by now - - most haven't. All times are PM.
9:00 - - Southbound 2, #6345 - - failed
9:05 - - Northbound 2, #6520 - - failed
9:08 - - Southbound 2, #6485 - - failed
9:18 - - Northbound 2, #6631 - - failed
9:22 - - Southbound 3, #1480 - - passed
9:37 - - Northbound 3, #1625 - - failed
9:43 - - Southbound 2, #6630 - - failed
9:47 - - Northbound 2, #6327 - - failed
9:50 - - Southbound 3, #1316 - - passed
9:56 - - Northbound 3, #1461 - - failed (no announcement)
10:02 - Southbound 2, #6560 - - failed
10:10 - Southbound 3, #1375 - - passed
So, when will NYCT ever fix this?
