Re: Op-Ed: Not sold on B44 Select Bus

Posted by AcelaExpress2005 on Mon Nov 25 00:16:51 2013, in response to Op-Ed: Not sold on B44 Select Bus, posted by Gold_12th on Sat Nov 23 12:30:29 2013.

This article is pure bullshit as the guy has no clue what he's talking about.

In reality, the SBS is a success on the B44, with a few minor glitches - most noticeable: the local service needs to be increased to take up folks on those LTD stops that were eliminated (mostly from Gates Avenue and give or take at Avenue L).

10-12 minute headways will not cut it until Rogers Avenue picks up, which it will take 6-12 months to happen, in full.

Some SBS buses may run empty because of the locals running in 6-7 packs, so when the SBS shows up, those folks were already loaded on the bunched local pack, when they should have been on the SBS.

I can attest that when BusTime is fully activated in January, the 44 bunching (along with other Brooklyn bus routes) will end, as control room dispatchers can evenly spread service along the line.
