Subway service icons[edit]

I don't think it's the best idea to use subway service icons here. They don't add much (except looking pretty like MTA bus maps); the list would be better served by using the templates at Wikipedia:WikiProject New York City Public Transportation/New York City Subway/Lines. This way, service time information is included as well, and any service changes can be made quickly. Larry V (talk | e-mail) 23:55, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

  • That because some reposted or copy and paste some of the sections to be place here with out writing some information about the page. Unless if nobody improves or taken care of this page. It will be put up cleanup tag, it is simple as that. BWCNY 08:37, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
I'm starting to rewrite the table to be more like the other boroughs, which generally don't mention the subway stations (the descriptions come from the schedules), though, if someone wants to add the stations too, I agree with you. I don't know if it's necessary to even show the services; a link to the station might be good enough. --NE2 08:10, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
You could add little bit more detail on where is the exact terminal location (e.g. street, major attraction, nearby or at a transportation station) instead of putting a neighborhood name next to the bus route. That would improve a lot on this page or any other related page. You may also add service information to it and it's not irrelevant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by BWCNY (talkcontribs)
I don't feel the exact intersection is encyclopedic, in part because it can change much more frequently than the general routing. It probably is useful to link to a subway station though if it ends there. --NE2 09:07, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Table columns[edit]

Doesn't it make more sense to list the route names first, rather than the operators? Larry V (talk | e-mail) 10:25, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Possibly. I got the impression from the discussion on WT:NYPT that the operators are important enough to split the articles about operations though. --NE2 10:29, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
But wouldn't it still be better with the route names first? Larry V (talk | e-mail) 10:19, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
If you care to change it, feel free. --NE2 11:00, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

QBx1[edit]

Please stop adding the QBx1 here; it's on List of express and multi-borough bus routes in New York City for a reason. --NE2 04:36, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Zones[edit]

The four zones or areas established in 1936 were as follows:

Other local companies were:

Missing numbers[edit]

The following numbers are not currently listed on the page, or only a later addition is listed:

  • Q20
  • Q30
  • Q32
  • Q35
  • Q46

Presumably Q60 and up were assigned to avoid conflicts with lower numbers. --NE2 16:07, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

March 2008 re-labeling[edit]

Route overhaul (continued)[edit]

I'm going to start it---but with the express bus article first. This will come later. BWCNY, I get you. --AEMoreira042281 (talk) 04:59, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

"Extended to" in route notes/history[edit]

Wouldn't it be better if that was more like "extended from"? Example: Q45 - we already know it goes to Atlas Park (now a redundant entry, being a terminal and "extended to"), why not make it "extended from Eliot Ave" as this gives a bit more info? But, it may take some "digging" to find out where some routes were extended from, though.
