I am stating that there are loads of car services waiting at all times to pick people up from the subway.
Huh? All times? You just said you were only talking about "on the weekends when the B4 no longer operates."
If they weren't doing a good business there they would go elsewhere. Do you expect me to count everyone who uses a car service to give you exact numbers?
No, I'm expecting you to provide enough information to be able to evaluate whether your conclusion that bus service is "nowhere close to adequate" is logically correct.
Don't be ridiculous by asking the impossible.
It's not impossible at all. You want to claim that bus service is inadequate based on the car service activity. So you need to have an idea of the number of people coming out of the subway and taking car services. You can't make such conclusions without even knowing the basics! That is one reason why you are wrong so much. You don't do a logical analysis.
If you would go to the community meetings and read some of the posts on Sheepsheadbites, you would hear all the compaining how people must resort to car services because there are no buses, like the guy who stated that when he has to work overtime once a month, he must take a car service home because th bus stops running at 7PM.
Um, that is purely anecdotal. That stuff has no bearing whatsoever. What you're saying is like saying that because you always hear people complaining at meetings and hearings and in the media that the bus/subway fare is too high, that means it IS too high and should be lowered. That's a ridiculous conclusion to make based on such evidence.
Now either tell me what type of point you are trying to make or I will go back to ignoring you.
I'm not making a point yet. Again, I'm trying to gather all the necessary information to determine whether or not your conclusion makes logical and factual sense. You want to claim that bus service is inadequate based on the car service activity. I suspect that your conclusion, or at least the process you used to reach it, is flawed. And thus I'm gathering information to see if that is or is not the case.
There's no point discussing the problem (inadequate bus service) if it's not really a problem at all.
