Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

It's profitable when you don't consider the cost of enforcement or the cost of maintaining the fare machines. In fact it is more profitable than any other route. When you add in those other costs, then it loses money and no routes are profitable.

There still are other elements of the equation that are not discussed. That is the revenue from summonses for fare evasion and the administrative costs to collect that revenue.. Maybe some or all of that revenue does not go to the MTA and if it does, it may not go back to fund the buses but to other parts of the MTA.
