Quote from: The Lycanroc Gamer on August 07, 2019, 07:27:03 amI have a few ideas for the new version of Cayuga USA:1) Add in a CCTA version of SEPTA route 8 (FOX Xpress) from Arrot to Fern Rock
Quote from: The Lycanroc Gamer on August 07, 2019, 07:27:03 am2) bump up the frequency of routes 12 and 16
Quote from: The Lycanroc Gamer on August 07, 2019, 07:27:03 am3) add Artics on 49 (and maybe 48?)
Quote from: The Lycanroc Gamer on August 07, 2019, 07:27:03 am4) increase passenger count on 48
Quote from: The Lycanroc Gamer on August 07, 2019, 07:27:03 am5) Reroute 68 Express to follow 68 Local. That should be it.
Quote from: Dash5155 on August 07, 2019, 03:44:46 pmYou mean a stub route that does what the 47 and 16 already do? That's an oversaturation of service don'cha think? Besides routes 34, 35, and 75 connects with route 47 which for the most part is a combination of routes 12 and 16 so it would make no sense to have more service headed that wayFrom an operations standpoint: Why? The 47 does what the 16 does, and the 54 as well. Both are frequent routes. Again same as above: There's no point in oversaturating service in this corridor as it's already been done. Also the 12 is plenty frequent, so there's no need for that either.49 is a definite no because lag.48 wouldn't make sense because it's not the heaviest routeYeah no people don't like their computers self destructing from OMSI lagBut... why?
Quote from: The Lycanroc Gamer on August 07, 2019, 06:58:00 pm4)Here's the problem: 68 express arrows go straight but there's nothing there.
Quote from: Jonathan the great on August 11, 2019, 01:17:36 pmi was thinking you should add more Direct and express routes
Quote from: wxman4life on August 10, 2019, 09:42:31 pmMy personal opinion is make more routes like the 46. Something about those neighborhood routes I really enjoy! It's my favorite route to drive.
Quote from: Jonathan the great on August 11, 2019, 01:17:36 pmi was thinking you shoud add more Direct and express routes
Quote from: htownman25 on August 13, 2019, 10:58:30 pmMaybe but from where to where? I reckon there needs to be at least one (or more) express routes going to the airport, IMHO.
Quote from: Chris4078 on August 13, 2019, 03:19:06 amI was thinking to add more routes into the Lakeland Walmart the 14 could use a little help with that
Quote from: Chris4078 on August 14, 2019, 02:19:54 amWhat routes are you thinking for the circular routes
Quote from: Dash5155 on August 05, 2019, 11:36:29 pmRouting changes:Many existing routes will change based on some comments given in the past operations wise. LakelandRoute A will take over operation from Collins Transportation Center to Barnes Estates via Terry Road. This new route will operate via route 173 (Roosevelt Boulevard) to Keswick Overwatch, then to Barnes Estates following the original routing of route 216Route B will take over operation from Collins Transportation Center to Barnes Estates via Main Street. This new route will operate via Route 173 (Roosevelt Boulevard) to National Park, then to Barnes Estates following the current route 214Route 217 will become route C, without any changes (for now).Route 218 and 219 will become routes D and E respectively.Route D will serve National Park and Lakeland Walmart (which does not current exist), before continuing to Tremont Park and Ride, then terminating at Seneca Street.CCTA Route 14 will be rerouted via Lakeland Walmart, and terminate at the current Lakeland route 214, 216, and 217 spot inside Collins Transportation CenterRoutes A, B, and D will terminate on the street at Collins Transit Center. Routes A, B will turn into route D buses at Collins Transportation Center and vice versa.Route C will take the old spot for route 215 at Collins Transit Center.GreenvilleRoute 201 will be called "Eastside Circulator," and will operate as a hybrid between current routes 201 and 202 terminating in Downtown Greenville.Service to Greenville High School will become route 202, to be called "School Service", and operate as an express from Downtown Greenville on weekdays 6am-8am and 2:30pm-5:30pmA new Shopper's Special route 203 will start in Downtown Greenville, operating to Springfield Mall.GREAT routes will become inter-lined. Route 201 trips continue as route 203 trips, and Vice-Versa
Quote from: MillerRichard1 on August 14, 2019, 03:28:22 amI think personally the 14 that goes to Austin-Madison needs to have a change in number. I mean it goes to too many destinations: Springfield Mall, Arrott TC, Collins TC, Austin-Madison and I think there's one more (correct me if I'm wrong). I'm not saying that the route has to be changed but just make the number something different. I know me and a buddy talked about different numbers. He suggested route 7, however, I was thinking (to stay within double digits) maybe like call it route 24 or like a route 73. Idk.. Just something different
Quote from: htownman25 on August 14, 2019, 11:09:13 amThe 14 originates from Arrott TC and goes to the following locations: Springfield Mall, Collins TC, and Austin-Madison. If there really needs to be a change to differentiate the variants of the 14, either go that route or (if possible) add a designated letter.Examples:Option 1 (changing numbers)=>14 from Arrott TC to Collins TC; 15 from Arrott TC to Springfield Mall; 18 from Arrott TC to Austin-Madison.Option 2 (adding designated letters - only if possible)=>14C from Arrott TC to Collins TC; 14S from Arrott TC to Springfield Mall; 14A from Arrott TC to Austin-Madison.
Quote from: Chris4078 on August 14, 2019, 06:29:44 pmI actually like the lettering for the 14
Quote from: MillerRichard1 on August 14, 2019, 12:17:28 pmWith your option 1, you basically just reiterated my point. I prefer there to be a change in number. (i.e. 24 or 73(like I mentioned)) just something different. With option 2, I don't mind that, but at the end of it all, it would still be considered a 14 route; you just have a letter to separate them. I prefer a different number. Having the 14 go to Collins TC and Springfield Mall is already good enough. Why should there be a need to have a 3rd location? Overall, so yes, you can still have the bus go to Austin-Madison, just change the overall number to something different
Quote from: Dash5155 on August 14, 2019, 09:16:06 pmMadison is 2 streets off from the regular 14 route. So it's not like a whole different route or anything. Plus A L L late night 14 trips go there. Splitting it up would cause confusion if it was say a real agency because only late night trips and some rush hour trips go to Austin-Madison. If I was to split the 14 into separate routes, people would think Late night service on the 14 is getting eliminated, and the trunk of service along Buselton will seem to be "servered" during rush hours. In real life, agencies have rush hour cutbacks without renumbering the routes all the time.Legit, no weekend or midday service to that loop. It would make no sense to split it into it's own route. It would be a weird split.
Quote from: MillerRichard1 on August 14, 2019, 09:27:02 pmThen if anything,perhaps remove the 14 going to Collins TC and replace that with a different number, idk. I'm just offering up my suggestion for something different since it's the only bus that goes to 3 different locations (correct me if I'm wrong)
Quote from: Dash5155 on August 15, 2019, 01:16:14 amKinda yes kinda no? All route 14 trips serve Austin. Madison is just two stops east of the regular route on Buselton Avenue, but it's also the only spot where the bus could turn around without going off route. At night, all route 14 trips terminate at Austin-Madison.ALL service to Springfield mall, end service around Midnight (in the released this is routes 35, 124, 125, 204, and 214), ALL routes to Lakeland also end service at 12 midnight (due to Lakeland bus lines themselves not operating, which in the released version would be routes 214-219). The only place where route 14 can operate is along Buselton, which is why the late night trips end at Madison Loop. The only split-up that would truly make sense is the 14 to Springfield Mall trips and the 14 to Lakeland trips, but in the WIP version that will all be fixed. ALL trips will serve Springfield whether or not they terminate at the mall. In the released version, all route 34 and 35 trips cut back at 18th-City before headed to the depot, regardless of where it started. Central Directs do the same. The 46 was supposed to, but that particular update never came out. If you analyze the files, you'll notice that some 46 schedule files indicate a Pine Street cutback. This was never utilized (in the released version)Don't even get me started on the mess that is the current 215 bus, with two cutbacks (which will still be active when the lettered routes take over) which are used in both directions at all times.
Quote from: htownman25 on August 15, 2019, 08:49:36 amMoving on.......I read that the Greenville Transit Hub will be gone. Will that site be a parking lot (maybe) for the rail line that stops there?
