NYC's MTA Subway Recovery Map Confusing and Misleading

Posted today (Nov. 3rd) on the right column of mta.info, the MTA supposed Subway Recovery Map which is dated for today, contradicts the service descriptions on the left column of the same page! (And Google's transit map, which is actually correct)

UPDATE: They changed it. I swear. They changed the map now. Before it had several more lines running even between Manhattan and Brooklyn. Sneaky!

Supposed restored service map
clearly marked "As of November 3"
I personally prefer to see a map than read each line's description so I think it was pretty safe to assume this map reflected today's service, not tomorrow (or whenever, not even that being clear - when this map will be in effect). So I went down to the 8 St NYU station only to discover there's no service there at all.

Well done MTA, disinform your customers ONE MORE TIME, during the already freaking adverse conditions in New York City left by Sandy and when its 0 degrees (Celsius) and windy as well outside. Gre…

From Manhattan to JFK airport for $2.25 and Fast

Traveling from JFK to Manhattan (or Vice Versa) has never been really easy even if willing to pay whatever is necessary. (scroll down to "The Answer" to skip the preamble)

A taxi will be a good $40 plus tip (even to Brooklyn or Queens).
There's also the train from Penn Station (or Brooklyn's Atlantic Ave) to Jamaica (about $7), then AirTrain ($5).
Of course there's also the long subway wide to wither Jamaica or Howard Beach ($2.25) and then the AirTrain ($5) [this is the most common suggested route as you can see here http://gonyc.about.com/cs/airlinesairports/a/getto_jfk.htm]

However, hidden at plan sight (and very suspiciously unadvertised  is a mean to get to/from the airport to Manhattan (or anywhere else in the city, Brooklyn being the easiest borough to access this way) for only the cost of a public transport ride. $2.25 !

There are 3 bus lines that hit JFK at. The Q3 goes deep into Queens so the locals in that area should know how to use it! The B15 does …

Mapa del Metrobus de la Ciudad de México

Update: Por fin el Gobierno hizo su chamba luego de años de que mi mapa fuera el único en Google Maps. Hoy (05-11-2013) me percaté que en www.metrobus.df.gob.mx/mapa.html (solo con "www"...) se puede apreciar ya este mapa (zoom centrado en centro de la ciudad):

Ver Plano de Sistema de Corredores de Transporte Público de Pasajeros del D.F., Metrobús en un mapa ampliado


Para quien prefiera los iconos que yo utilicé, aquí dejo la última versión que actualicé (hasta línea 4 y proyecto de línea 5): En mi post "Mapa del Metrobus en Google Maps" publiqué el mapa del metrobus en Abril dl 2009. Ahora que hay más estaciones y más líneas, es necsaria esta actualización.
Incluye íneas 1 a 4 (actual a Junio 13 del 2012). La descripción de cada estación incluye correspondencias con otras líneas de MB y con el meto.
Además quiciera es incluir el ten ligero, las rutas/paradas del turibus, y algunas rutas de RTP - y tal vez el ten suburbano.
