As MTA removes printed bus schedules from stops, elected officials push back on behalf of the tech-challenged in New York City Bus Posted Monday at 02:40 AM 12 hours ago, B35 via Church said: Yeah, and market it under the cloak of "headway based scheduling". Have them have you believe, debt repayment..... We're already at the dawn of potentially troubling times.... Although it may not seem so, since we're talking about millions of people utilizing the various bus & train routes, the MTA is hemorrhaging patronage on the buses & trains & it's only going to go south from here on in..... I'm actually astonished at how much taxi usage there is in this city now (in saying that, I'm completely excluding what goes on at JFK & LGA).... Some would even say that it was all unsustainable (especially in regards to the subway)..... IDK man, I expected this shit (as far as cuts go) years ago; they were not done in 2010 by a longshot (I think I even said something of the sort on here)..... The only question I had really, wasn't even a matter or if, or (scary enough) at what magnitude..... It was a matter of when it would all happen.... I did not think it would be this soon. Get this.... On the B12, they put up a countdown clock at the East New York av/Junius stop (while failing do so at the East New York av/Pacific st stop).... What's odd about that you ask? Well, Junius st is the 2nd-to-last stop due EB on the B12, while Pacific is the 2nd WB pickup stop... While a few people actually do board the B12 at Junius (at the other side of the underpass) to get to Alabama (or for all the bus connections), you'd think the technology would be more useful for way more people disembarking at LIRR East New York that need the WB B12 at Pacific & what not.... Never mind there not being one for the B12/B25 for the hundreds upon hundreds that disembark at Alabama itself.... And remember---MTA stands for Money Thrown Away! Another great example...when bus operators were laid off in the budget crisis in 2010, the MTA could simply have furloughed drivers and recalled them as other drivers retired or were let go.
