MTA Open Thread: How Will Service Cuts Affect You?
No longer a bus stop, effective June 27. Image: Transportation Nation.
With the cuts to New York City Transit taking effect this weekend, today’s the last day of service for many riders. If you take the V or W train, or the M6, M18, M27, M30, B23, B37, B39, B51, B71, B75, B77, Q74, Q75, Q79, Q89, Bx14, Bx25, Barretto Park Pool Shuttle, S60 or S67 buses, you’ll be hit the hardest; those lines are scheduled for elimination. On dozens more routes, riders will be waiting longer for their ride or scrambling to replace night and weekend service.
We want to hear how these cuts are going to affect you. Will you ride your bike more and take the bus less? Stay in the neighborhood on weekends? How much longer is it going to take to get to work? Let us know in the comments.
