Comptroller Scott Stringer released a comprehensive Bus report this week.

https://comptroller.nyc.gov/reports/the-other-transit-crisis-how-to-improve-the-nyc-bus-system/

I think Springer's report did a great job in summarizing and quantifying the problems with buses and brought attention to the matter. I was less impressed with his recommendations.

This was what I wrote for the Queens Chronicle in the 800 words I was allowed. My comments were cut by 20 percent.

This was the piece on Woodhaven SBS that was on the same page.

And this is the RPA report that also came out this week:

They have been recommending the Triboro Plan (which I support) for 40 years and it has gone nowhere. Has anything RPA ever proposed come to reality? I can't think of anything.

It's been a busy transit week for news.
