I'm pretty sure those artics on the M96 had something to do with the water main break on the upper west side knocking out subway service on the West Side IRT....

I think it had everything to do with that....

The fact that they changed the “Bus lanes are for buses” animation from the bus vaporizing cars to the bus taking a giant Polaroid picture is pretty darn hilarious.

Keep an eye out for it next time you guys ride a bus with the new screens.

MTA was giving cars in the bus lane the Thanos snap.

They had another one during the holiday season where the bus vaporizes Santa's sleigh as he's making deliveries 😂

I saw that, laughed, and then said to myself "really? They paid some graphic designer to make this video, but they can't bother to correct the problems with the automated announcements? Priorities..."

So you’re telling me the Q46 LTD doesn’t go to Leej Hoss and that the Bx12 Plus doesn’t go to the Jacobi Hoss on Websterav where you can transfer for a Nehave train?

the confusion lies with people being LAZY. lazy minded individuals don't bother looking at destination signs or even the actual color scheme of the bus. people just see a large vehicle, translate it in their mind as "BUS! must be the one i need, so I'm getting on, and it better be going where I need to go..."

not all, but some.

Yes some of the passengers out there are getting confused, like EastFlatbushLarry stated  that some of the passengers are just  lazy to even read the destination sign. I will only give credit to passengers that may be visual impaired or have some sort of disabilities. Like yesterday I blew my swing "Break/Lunch" and I was instructed by Console Command Center to do a short trip to Empire Blvd after my lunch break and start back the other direction at my regular time. I swear the destination sign stated in big bold letters  "B41  EMPIRE BLVD" and I also pre-recorded on my phone with the Speak4me app onto the bus speakers where each time the door opens the outside speakers repeats 3 times "This is the B41 To Empire Blvd.....Last stop Empire Blvd" and I made sure I put the volume on the speakeasy announcement loud enough that it would just annoyed the crap out of you and I still had passengers asking me if I was going downtown or they all look shock when they find out my last stop is empire blvd.  

Some of the passengers on the B41 thinks the sbs wrap buses are limited buses only.... All they see a big blue bus with the sbs color scheme and they assume its a limited bus.

Similar things happened when my homeboy did a S44 short-turn to Post and Jewett Avs. His bus would have the proper signange and he announced it along the way. You’d still have passengers at Post/Jewett or onboard asking if the bus was going all the way to the mall. I used to get a good chuckle out of it.
