You’ve got to be kidding. The Mayor was in Miami last week on business. One of the reasons was to check out their Bus Rapid Transit System.
That’s a fancy ass name for adding “Bus Only” lanes so that the buses can get around quicker.
The system is going to be piloted in NYC soon. The city will convert one bus route in each borough.
Ok, so what the hell does this have to do with the subway? Well it’s all the MTA. And if the MTA is investing in things having to do with the buses, that means those dollars aren’t being invested in the subway.
So instead of paying to covert lanes, improving buses, etc. just spend the money on subway improvements! If you’ve only got a short distance, the buses we have now are fine. If you have a way to go, jump on the subway.
How about we spend that money on better security? Now there’s a novel concept.
