If the bus is running ahead of schedule, they tell him to wait so he gets back on schedule.
The problem isn't the fact that they're being held once in a while. It's the fact that they aren't adjusting the schedules. If you're consistantly having buses on a certain route at a certain time of day being forced to wait, there's too much runtime being alloted, which is bad for both the MTA (since it's less productive) and for the passengers (since they're not getting where they need to go in as fast a time as possible)
Thank you. So his rant about holding buses had absolutely nothing to do with BusTime.
Considering that the buses I use aren't excessively unreliable
