These opinion articles ran on Gotham Gazette as part of the Agenda 2019 series done in partnership with City Limits.


Part 1

“Buses are often late, slow, and otherwise unreliable and sometimes overcrowded, and some routes do not take passengers where they want to go. They often involve indirect travel and one or more transfers requiring long waits. Alternatives do exist besides driving, and bus riders are increasingly switching to them.”

Part 2

“Unwillingness to invest in providing additional bus miles to attract new patronage has partially been the reason for ridership declines.”

Part 3

“The MTA must care more about its passengers and stop penny pinching.”
