Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

It would appear that nobody bothered checking the Q52/Q53 schedule to see how accurate the simulation is at predicting the then current situation. Such a check would have revealed that the then current running time (May 2016) between these two stops to be 6.3 minutes. No observer should have much faith in the projected time savings from the simulation, until any simulation more accurately predicts the current state.

And every bus is on time in the a.m. peak?

Looking at Bustime data for 10/22/2014 (a random weekday), travel time between Jamaica Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue for northbound Q52 and Q53 buses ranges from 10 to 15 minutes between 7:30 and 9:00 a.m. The model looks OK to me, but the schedule may need some work to reflect actual traffic conditions.
