BREAKING NEWS: MTA to hold off on approving draconian cuts to NYC transit — but LIRR riders will take a hit in New York City Bus Posted January 2 On 12/28/2020 at 2:13 PM, Mtatransit said: ...Their guidelines are used to cut service, that all there is to it. There have been times when the Guidelines Manual was used in order to increase service, but these are few and far between. The most recent examples were for the Bx16 Weekday, Saturday and Sunday services. But, I do think that they are used MOSTLY to cut service. As I had stated above, I have ideas that would make the Guidelines more equitable, i.e. to proactively compete with rideshare services and the automobile. But that's wishful thinking, and for a different thread.
