BusTurnaround.NYC Launch Event

Every day, New Yorkers take 2.5 million bus rides on a system that is slower and less reliable than at any other point in the city’s recent history. Together with Riders Alliance, the Straphangers Campaign, and the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, TransitCenter is convening a group of New Yorkers determined to reverse declining performance and ridership on the country’s busiest bus network by implementing proven solutions.

In the report we released in July, “Turnaround: Fixing New York City’s Buses,” we outline several concrete solutions that can be applied to make New York’s buses work better for riders. Today we’re releasing a new website, busturnaround.nyc where you can see how your bus route stacks up to your fellow New Yorker’s. And don’t forget to vent your bus woes with Rider Alliance here.
