Re: Bus from Journal Square to LaGuardia Airport?

The cost, time, inconvenience, and frustration of getting to LaGuardia is pegged at about $75, one way. So a flight out of Newark would have to be more than $150 than LaGuardia for it to be worth it to me.

I saw NYC Airporter bus at Journal Square once, but there is no other information online. I assume this heads to Newark?

I can't do the multiple transfers using PATH and an Uber is too expensive. Is there a private bus service from JSQ to LGA?

How is anyone surprised by this? It's the story of America, the bigger you get the more influence you buy.

Ultimately anyone will be able to look up Dixon properties and see if they are paying their fair share post-reval. They should be on the higher end anywhere since they do above average renovations.

They may be able to kick the can on taxes, but I really don't see how they can dodge the Reval... If they do dodge it, then show up at City Hall with pitchforks...


They're not dogging anything. Just some disgruntled city hall employee or political operative trying to slander.

First it was Dixon applying for an abatement to shield from the reval, per the original post. When pointed out it's perfectly legal and automatic for a major rehab to receive an abatement, the story changed and suggest Dixon is NOT applying for the automatic abatement so it can keep its assessment low... until the reval. Lol

Home rule leads to all sorts of shady things. Tax assessment shouod be done on the county level with a rolling reval at least every five years.

You're such a loser. As has been mentioned, major rehabs are automatically eligible for a 5 year abatement. It has nothing to do with Dixon or city council.

BTW, if anyone from Dixon is reading this, please buy up some of the abandoned properties in my neighborhood in the Heights to convert into 2,3, or 4-family homes. I'm tried of the blight, and it sounds like you guys know hoe to get the job done. Great jobs guys.



Um, might want to re-think that request. Dixon owns about 6-7 houses on my block alone in DTJC. Two of them they purchased 2 years ago and they've been sitting empty ever since. Don't know if they plan to refurb them or sell them as-is, but probably the former. Dixon is usually the last to shovel during the winter and when they are doing refurb work they pay zero attention to the noise they make, starting early (like 7:00) and sometimes all weekend. As neighbors go, pretty obnoxious...


Thank for the info - in the case, nevermind.

The wife and I have taken Uber for our last two trips to EWR (to and from). We even used Uber in Bangkok. The only issue is that you occasionally get a driver who is not familiar with our area and relies on Google maps. Last time we ended up going 78 all the way South through Bayonne, instead of taking 1&9 (no toll, less distance).

Enjoy Uber while it lasts. IMO, drivers don't make enough to cover the depreciation on their cars. I think many drivers will realize this once major wear-n-tear expenses start to pile up (new brakes, new rotors, engine mounts, oxygen sensors, clutch, tires, etc.).


I agree - but the ride sharing concept isn't going away. Prices will one day rise.

Right now the drivers are being taken advantage of and don't even know it.

Why do we accept that it will take this long for Parking to get its act together?!? MAKE THEM, COUNCIL! It shouldn't take more than 6 months TOPS fore them to be able to effectively launch this. This delay is utter crap. Director Paretti needs to actually do some work for that sweet 6 figure salary.

Expanded services at virtually FREE rates? That price is stupid and needs to be increased. Some would say substantially or to market rate. I would say $30-$50/year makes sense - that's still a giant bargain. How does this city expect to pay for better services like expanded enforcement - which we desperately need citywide - at these 1970's prices?!?

Agree with the first half, though I'm not sure open gangway would survive the S curve heading into Christopher from Newport.

On the second half, people are way too stupid to be able to handle moving from one car to another to exit.


That's the point of open gangway cars. Its basically just one giant car. They can be enginnered to handle any curve the current trains handle.

My understanding is Federal regs preclude PATH trains running more frequently until the signal system has been updated. So it seems a fine point to say the signal upgrade is not mandated. But mandate or no, more reliable and frequent PATH service is badly needed.

On other fine points, there was no net increase in overall service (total number of trains running) with the May 2015 timetable change increasing trains from JSQ. The increase in JSQ trains was matched by a reduction on the HOB line. I'm not aware of any increase in service in 2016 (last year).

Here's what PATH was reported as saying at the time – if you believe them:
http://www.hudsonreporter.com/view/fu ... rains-?instance=more_page

There are a lot of vested interests at play in discussions about PATH. Which developer wants it known that the PATH is a mess now, let alone what it will be after thousands more apartments are finished - in JC, Harrison and Newark, not to mention the EWR extension...


Right on the May 2015 change. That's what I meant when I said last year. (Oh how time passing by)

33rd st signal upgrade completed last year, has the service times increased since?

Not sure when the WTC upgrade will be completed...


The signal upgrades are a federal mandate. PATH is not doing this to ease crowding on the trains. After the upgrades, PATH could run trains more frequently. Will they? No. I have been riding PATH for 14 years and every time there is a new timetable, PATH has ALWAYS decreased service. I could be wrong, but I've never seen it where PATH has actually increased service.

The weekend service used to be like the weekday service where the JSQ train didn't go through Hoboken. They switched to what is it today and said it would only be temporary while they build the 9/11 museum.


Wrong. PTC is federally mandated. The signals that allow trains to run closer together is CBTC. Both upgrades are being done at the same time.

Total nonsense. Even for Newport riders.

It can get a little crowded, but it is extremely rare that the train is so jammed you can't get on. When that does happen, there's usually a half-empty train right behind it.

You want crowded? Try the 4/5/6 during rush hour.


You are probably confusing the alternate universe you are traveling in with reality. Or else you are one of those people who just push into the train as long as they can get two toes in the door. Or just a troll on JC List with no actual experience. Lots of those lately.


The only time I've never been able to board a PATH train due to capacity issues was at 2am in the morning. Lol. Run more trains at night Port Authority!

The only time PATH is really bad is at 8:15-8:45am. I've seen people unable to board but they just get on the next one arriving 110 seconds later. If you don't like the crowds, leave 30 minutes earlier, or 30 minutes later if your work allows it.

Nothing but whine on JClist. Lol.

http://corpinfo.panynj.gov/files/uplo ... -requests/15532-WTC-7.pdf

The signaling upgrades will allow trains to run every 90 seconds (or 40 trains per hour). Currently, it's every 116 seconds (or 31 trains per hour). That's a 29 percent increase in capacity.

The referenced link says due to ridership projections, PATH plans to run less than 40 trains per hour. In other words, PATH is in control of the crowding situation. They only increase it once it reaches critical situations.

Once the number of trains in maxed out, then they're going to go from 8-car to 10-car trains. That's another 25 percent increase in capacity in addition to the 29 percent increase from the signaling upgrades. Only at that point will PATH be truly at capacity and we'll have to look at adding another rail line, like the old plan to extend the NYC 7 line to New Jersey.
