    Bergen St Bus Routes

    1. I couldn't find a proper terminal down the Weequahic area. I didn't want it to go down Elizabeth & Hillside and keep it in Newark territory. Your right about have it go to Bloomfield Av instead of Park Av. 2. The express was supposed to work as both a one-seat ride to Lower Manhattan and as an alternative to the overcrowded PATH. The other routes do have a purpose. The Bergen/Avon route goes from Irvington Terminal to East Orange along Avon Av and up Bergen St. Provide Bergen St and Avon Av customers service to Irvington and East Orange. The Bergen St route is the more frequent one as it goes from Homestead Pk to Bergen along West Runyon and up Bergen to W Market St and follows the #21 from there. You brought up a good point about the frequently. So I decreased the Express and Bergen/Avon to being 15 min instead of 12 min. Which would equal. Bergen/1st St: 6 BPH Bergen St Exp and Avon/Bergen: 4 BPH Bergen St:7 BPH Which in total equal of buses combines every 1-5 minutes on the stretch of Bergen from W Market to Avon Av. Maybe it seems I overserved the Bergen St corridor LOL. Thanks for comments and the criticisms. Also the NJT #99 will be rerouted to stay on Norfolk St instead of going on Bergen from S Orange to W Market and then back on Norfolk. The Bergen/1st St route would fill in the University Hosp servive lost by the #99 reroute.

    Why do Manhattan bus routes have the worst service out of all the boroughs?

    1). I mean by everyone I mean both the , NYDOT and DeBlasio 2). Uber and Lyft are very popular and I assume they bribed the politicians into not enforcing them. Also There going to close off 14th St to cars during rush hours due to the whole L train shutdown thing so there might be a sight of hope.

    Basically everyone is to blame for the bad service

    Why do Manhattan bus routes have the worst service out of all the boroughs?

    Put small barriers that separate the bus lanes from regular traffic and start enforcing the law fiercely but the MTA will never do that

    Why do Manhattan bus routes have the worst service out of all the boroughs?

    It seems the MTA doesn't even care about "efficient" service so that don't even tell the NYPD to enforce the bus lanes. I'm laughing because of how pathetic the enforcement of the bus lanes are

    Why do Manhattan bus routes have the worst service out of all the boroughs?

    Some cars atually park at the bus lane belive it or not
  14. Routes like the M1 to M3,M7,M15,M20,M101 to M103 and the crosstown are notable for having mediocre to awful service but why is that exactly.
