  • DOT’s posturing on the SI ferry going to midtown — especially when you consider the mayor’s other ferry proposal — underscores how no one in this administration has a clue when it comes to comprehensive transit planning.

  • notsurprised

    Let’s see those bicycle safe passage numbers!

    Yep, the big proposal so far are: 1) SI Ferry to midtown, and 2) Ferry network, and 3) BQ Waterfront streetcar

    Meanwhile in the real world of the actual transportation network, the bus ridership is losing riders with no end in sight, and there is no comprehensive plan to address it. Subway issues are up, and congestion is up, with no plan to endorse MoveNY. Just pitiful flailing and pandering on the part of DeBlasio. What a hack.

  • bolwerk

    My impression of the problem with bus ridership is the users are moving or dying. The people who replace them are probably transplants who either need or prefer the subway.

  • Flakker

    You may know something I don’t, but this sounds to me like announcing they’re “studying” the problem to get Oddo to shut up for a while. Trottenberg does seem to have a clue, but serving two masters is impossible.
