Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

I will generous and suggest that Mr. Byford is under the impression that his subordinates know what they are doing in correcting long-standing deficiencies. But he is not a New Yorker--he is an outsider--and does not know, first hand, the background of buses in Queens County. The wool has been pulled over his eyes, so let us see how he reacts if this proposal is panned as much in the larger community as it is in this forum.

Do elected officials really want to become actively involved? Transit route planning is hard work, very open and visible, and can be the subject of much controversy. It is much easier to score political points by taking pot shots at an administration that it is to actually do something meaningful. The cynic in me thinks that the NYCTA and MTABC will be whipped by the elected officials, but those elected officials are not going to go out onto a limb with any better plan.
