    2017 Bus Ridership Stats

    There's one word that comes to mind when I see these numbers it's.... TANKING. I see losses nearly across the board and I can list off a few that were 10% or greater just within a year. I can't wait for our high ridership routes to play the game of 'How low can we go?' in 2018? All of our busiest routes are down a few thousand riders per weekday (at a minimum) from their numbers in the 2000's and early 2010's. The fact that our high ridership routes are suffering the most (as is the case in Chicago and LA to add some US parallels) shows that the problem with the system as perceived by riders is the inability (or IMO, unwillingness) to handle high passenger demand. The main focus for the redesign efforts should be on capacity for the busiest corridors of the city so rider's aren't shunning M15 like routes above all. We need to make our buses great again (pun intended) and the places to start are 1st/2nd, Utica, Fordham, Nostrand etc,..

    Yesterday during PM rush hour I’m catching the Bx31 northbound at Pelham Parkway and four buses pull in together when the headway is 10 minutes. 😖

    The Hanover signs on the 54xx LFSA's are straight up awful.

    SBS B82 just undoable

    I think this should be locked.

    I've seen a report about the double decker X17J and based on the information given one of the trips took 2 hours and 36 minutes. Why on earth do we have routes that long? Also, that trip ended a minimum of 45 minutes late based on the scheduled X17J trips.

    One thing I find very disappointing is that PM Rush Hour is scheduled from 4 to 7 pm yet around 6 pm everyday I see a bunch of buses Not In Service heading to their home depots (especially at GunHill). Why is that a significant amount of rush hour service ends before rush hour is finished leaving the back end of rush hour (6 to 7 pm) a rougher trip than the front end (4 to 5 pm)?

    Look at what we have here...

  8. That makes more sense but editing the post to add loss only takes a couple of seconds and clears up a whole lot.
  9. Aren't the latter two permanent fixtures in the top 10 for ridership? Of course they will reach it if they're always there. The former tanked it's way out of the top 10 and may soon be out of the top 20. The MTA seems to have some fetish for these routes which involves reducing service levels. It is beyond my imagination what the deal is here.
  10. I mentioned on here before that Commuter service should be increased within the city with fares competitive with the subway. The cost of running a few more TPH in the Bronx and Queens is far lower than the subway upgrades necessary to bring the Lex and QBL where they need to be. You're also likely to garner decent usage on these commuter lines as well since the rail portion of trips would be short and people can connect to the same local buses they're already using to get to the subway.

    April 1, 2018 Bus Service Changes

    Who ever said the MTA wants to win back bus riders? Most of their moves suggest they're okay with losing even more riders as they complain about the decrease.

    What schedule is the Bx12 +SBS running on today? Today didn't seem so bad at least compared to typical Bx12 +SBS standards. I'm not going to be happy when the kiddos are back to school and Bx12 local service has been cut once again.

    Why is 5 the Bx Express instead of 2?

    Don't let the low rankings of Dyre Av stations fool you. The vast majority of those boardings are Southbound during the AM Rush when only 7 TPH are running on the Dyre. The from Dyre fills up very quickly. Most cars have 75-80 passengers on them entering East 180th (AM Rush only) which is way too much considering the crowding the will end up seeing further along the route. If only there were someway to run more than 7 TPH from Dyre Av in the morning the wouldn't be so bad. It's sad that folks who ride the the in mid-afternoon to head to Manhattan get more frequent service than a peak traveler.

    Has the Bx41 SBS seen any action with 5468 and 5476 yet? Also, what will it take for the masses to learn that the Bx5 runs to Bay Plaza on weekends? It seems like a well kept secret given the ridership patterns from Bay Plaza to Pelham Bay.
