And of course some of those numbers aren't too accurate as half the passengers probably don't pay to get on anyway.

 

That's what the 5/F5 button is for.

 

In any case, a lot of them only ride the buses for a mile or so, so it's not making a huge difference.

From the looks of it MTAB numbers have been going up while NYCT numbers have been dropping, im very surprise. And the top three express routes came out of my depot wow thats very good lol. The only route thats missing is BxM6 from our express line up. Well i had a few ppl ask me why the BxM7 cant run later all the time smh. That line is always busy at all sorts of time, that also go for the 9 as well, the 7A also have its run. Lets get it MTAB we on it lol.:tup:

B8 is in the top ten... higher than the B38 and no limited!?!?

 

Come on MTA... Make a B8 limited! its a long ass route and quite a few people ride it for long distances. If those SI ferry route can have a limted, then so can the B8! :mad:

 

The B1... that run under the (D) train EL would pretty much kill the idea of a limited on that route.

 

For the B15 it would be nice...

 

QM24 higher ridership than the BM2? Shocking...

 

I wonder why the via FDR runs out of UP are separate from the X27/28...

 

:tup: to Green Lines/JFK depot for having three routes in the top ten ridership, kinda boring now over there with all the hybrids but I still like the depot!

 

Shocked the B103 didn't make the list though as well as the Q11.

 

But yes I'm very salty about the B8 lacking a limited right now.

few thoughts:

 

- I have a hard time believing the Q23 carries more than the Q6, 53, 60, and both the brewer routes....

 

- When you see the B8 in brooklyn's top 10, you know there's some serious farebeating goin on, on other lines in this borough !!!

 

- The B1 is the only route on brooklyn's list whose riders aren't majority black... good for those riders using their route enough to make the borough's top 10....

 

- The MTA exp. bus numbers, only one that surprises me is the BxM10 being that high up in the order...

 

- Top 3 NYCT exp. routes - there's a shocker !

 

- lol @ the north shore routes sandwiched b/w the Hylan routes

 

- also lol @ the Q32 carrying more than the heaviest 2 SE Queens routes

(so much for wanting to eliminate routes that parallel subway lines, right MTA ??)

 

- QM24 carries... that's them folks on eliot & myrtle that flood those buses....

 

- manhattan's top 10... I'm just glad they separated the 100/101/102...

wait a minute - wth is the M100 doin in the top ten !?!?!???

 

- no M23 ?

 

- bronx's top ten looks okay to me... sorry to say, but come next year's stats, watch how low the 41's gonna drop....

 

- ...and what Acela Express said in post #2 in this thread !

It's probably safe to say the B36 would've made the list if it wasn't for all the damn fare beating.

 

No?

I think they're trying to make it clearer for riders to distinguish where the X27 and X28 go and where the X37 and X38 go so as to better advertise the routes now that they're restored the old patterns prior to the June 2010 cuts. I believe ridership dropped slightly when they did the elimination of direct Midtown service. :mad: :tdown:

- also lol @ the Q32 carrying more than the heaviest 2 SE Queens routes

(so much for wanting to eliminate routes that parallel subway lines, right MTA ??) That shocked the hell out of me

1) It's possible (though not likely), since the other routes have more alternatives.

 

2) What about the B8 and B82? They spend a lot of time in "White" areas. If nothing else, I assume they use it to reach the subway.

1) I don't disagree w/ that general statement....

 

2) B8 I'd say is 1/2 and 1/2 (black/white).... B82 has significantly more black riders than white riders.... going by time spent in a particular neighborhood doesn't always tell the story (case in point, the Q35)....

 

I'm still working on that list btw.....

Alright then. How about the B6? What's the black/white split on that?

The B6 should be relatively easy since I used in Midwood and used it usually past Ocean Avenue. I had a friend who lived in Bensonhurst and when I would get on and we'd make our way past Coney Island Avenue, I recall it being majority white and very few black passengers. I think you see fewer whites as you get by Flatbush/Nostand Avenues and certainly far more blacks as those areas are more urban. Parts of Midwood have a more suburban feel to them.

Correction, these are the top 10 Bronx bus routes based on annual ridership for 2010:

 

Bx12: 14.5M

Bx1/2: 12.46M

Bx19: 10.53M

Bx36: 9.67M

Bx9: 8.79M

Bx40/42: 8.46M

Bx41: 7.58M

Bx15: 7.46M

Bx6: 6.60M

Bx22: 5.24M

 

With these numbers, I'm only surprised that the Bx22 has higher ridership than the Bx3 and Bx35. But it can be justified by the fact that the Bx22's route is longer and it's a semi-crosstown since Castle Hill/Parkchester riders use it to reach Fordham, the Northwest Bronx, and even Upper Manhattan.

You got the transition points (if you wanna call it that) correct... the black riders for the most part all fizzle out at CI av on the B6 (panning west).... the white riders all tend to fizzle out @ Flatbush (panning east); across from that laundromat....

 

Alright then. How about the B6? What's the black/white split on that?

 

B6 demographic is similar to the B82, but the gap is less.... I would say the B6 gets more black & more white riders than the B82 (looking at this another way, the B6 has higher ridership than the B82, on both ends of its respective routes)....

 

of course this is all opinion, but black to white, I'd say the B82 is 70/30 & the B6 is 60/40...

Any Hispanics on either of those routes? ;)

 

Now that I think about it, none of the areas that either of the routes go through have a large Hispanic population. Maybe Coney Island for the B82 and New Lots for the B6.

Not significant enough on either route, sorry to say =(

 

I mean, anyone can board a bus at anytime, so this is all moot.... just figured I'd throw that disclaimer in there.... but since you seem very fascinated/interested with this, I'll continue opinionating.... lol !

 

You may get some on the B82 traveling b/w bay pkwy (D) & kings hwy (B)(Q), and b/w Rockaway pkwy (L) & w/i starrett city itself.... as for the B6, you may get some b/w CI av & Glenwood/Nostrand..... I can't think of any other stints on the 6/82 there...

That may change a bit. With the exodus of Italians out of most of Bensonhurst (they still occupy parts of Cristoforo Colombo Blvd (18th Ave)) and of course have a stranglehold on areas by and in Dyker Heights, there are a lot of Asians there and I have seen some Latinos there as well in Bensonhurst, but not a ton, but that may change going forward. Similar to Morris Park, but Morris Park is still heavily Italian with some Latinos in parts and now Albanians.
