Spelling Mistakes

Recommended Posts

Yes.

 

No U in Tremont & No N in Throgs 

 

But you would be luck if some people spot the mistake and much worse even care about those errors to say something about it.

This does not surprise me at all. Just look at the MTA Bus website on any given day or any given hour and you will find errors just like this. Over one week on the Brooklyn bus  website for example, there were references to Cleveland Street, Cleveland Avenue and then Cleveland Street. The problem here is that no one bothers to correct a mistake and the same mistake is repeated throughout the day. It is like someone scribbled something on a piece of paper without checking to verify if the information is correct. Anyone who rides the J train or anyone who lives in the area (or has lived in the area (even sixty years ago)) can tell you, it is Cleveland Street (Cleveland Avenue is Great Kills, Staten Island). All this requires is 10 seconds of looking at the Brooklyn Bus map for the information.to be correct before making it available on the website..

Why are they in such a rush to give out the information when taking less than a minute can make sure that the information issued is correct? Yes! I expect perfection when it comes to signs on buses or information on websites and so does the ridership as if an agency can provide correct signage, then it reflects badly upon it as it shows that the personnel (and the agency) does not care. Other agencies do it (I had to make sure that everything that was disseminated at a public event had to be checked before it was issued. I think the problem is that they just do not care at all.

Email them and they might fix it.
