Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

Every building in the 20 arrondisments is within 500 meters (0.31 mi) a subway entrance. There's very little need for buses. The ratio of bus trips to subway to bus trips shows how little buses are used compared to NYC.

I can appreciate that, but within the context of this thread what does that mean? There are still lots of bus lines in Paris and when I was there about six years ago, they seemed to get used, especially the ones that use artics (lines 62, 80, 95 come to mind). If indeed ridership has gone down, I'd be interested in why. I was suggesting it could be something other than the bus stop spacing (unless bus stop spacing was significantly adjusted in the year the drop was reported).
