Re: 3557 on the QM18 (!)

"I said all of this because most of the passengers of the express buses in the NYC area are "accustomed" to certain "services" such as soft seats, having a seat (not standing), overhead lighting and racks, especially those traveling on the ex-LL and NYBS routes. After over 30 years of these things, you start rolling hard seated transit style buses-trust me they will notice and they will raise hell."
Don't forget tinted windows and reading lights. Some of the people on the QM1/QM1A give me crazy looks if I decide to stand on the bus if there are no seats left. I don't really care about having a seat but I only care about where I have to get to. I have gotten used to standing up because I take the local buses pretty often and I take the subway sometimes.
While paying higher means to expect something like soft seats and other goodies for alot of people, I am not like that. I only pay $5 is because the QM1 Downtown get's me downtown pretty quickly(40-55 Mins) and not having to transfer not even once. If I went the local bus+subway I have to transfer 2 times and takes a little over an hour(Around 1 hr and 10 Mins to 1 hr and 20 Mins)
