Re: Why Northern Brooklyn Needs Better Bus Service

If I talk about FDR, or Mayor LaGuardia, people still know who they were although they weren't alive when they served. My point was made. You don't have to know where the trolley lines were to understand it.

No most people do not have cars. Yes, slightly over 50% of the households have cars. But if the father uses it to go to work, the mother and teenage children have to rely on public transit all day. Few households are two or three car households. This is not the suburbs.

And they are not getting "so much bus service". You are thinking like the MTA now. What they ate getting is nowhere close to adequate. Just ask all the people who must rely on car services because of inadequate bus service. Does the subway station in your neighborhood have a dozen car services waiting outside the subway station? If they werent doing a good business they woudn't be there. See today's article probably around Noon.
