NYC Transit Statement On Bus Service

Response to Straphangers Campaign Report

The Straphangers assertion that our bus customers are being "crushed by crowds" or that customers are "having to wait for more than one bus to go by" does not systemically occur on NYC Transit bus routes. It is equally untrue that NYC Transit has not kept pace with the increase in ridership which resulted from free bus-to-subway transfers and discounted fares. The fact of the matter is that the increase in bus ridership, most of which occurred by the end of 2001, was met with unprecedented increases in bus service.
