New York City has one of the biggest and most complex transportation systems in the world and the bus transportation system is one of them. New York city buses started in the 17 century and were developed up until the 20th century. It was in the industrial era where the expansion and the development of buses really came into perspective. The bus system in New York is one the most delayed and heavily transported systems in America and the solution for this hasn’t been fixed as well. According to apta (hyperlink) Every single week people take the transportation for about 34 million times in a week and 9.9 billion Americans take trips in the American transportation system. This makes American transportation one of the busiest transportation systems in the world.
According to the text (hyperlink), “Hopping onto one of the city’s express buses may actually set you behind schedule, says a new study.More than 30 percent of MTA express buses missed their scheduled departure times, according to an audit released by the New York City comptroller’s office.The audit, which examined bus timelines, wheelchair functionality and customer satisfaction, found that commuters waited for buses anywhere between 6 to 28 minutes after the scheduled departure time.Buses in Brooklyn and Staten Island ranked lowest in performance, according to the audit, which found that nearly 40 percent of complaints came from those boroughs.”. This means that if you were to take the MTA buses you were destined to be behind schedule because of the slowness of the bus. 30 percent of the bus always miss their scheduled departure because of how slow the transportation system is. When the research was done they recognized that commuters waited 30 minutes for the bus. Long island and Brooklyn were ranked the lowest in performance when it came to the bus arriving at the spot. 40 percent of the late bus research came from brooklyn and Staten island. This delays the lives of people and puts their day to day activities behind as well and a solution needs to be developed for this.
