Assemblyman Dinowitz once again petitioned the MTA to add additional Bx10 buses to the West 231st Street and Broadway route to remedy severe overcrowding.
“Many Bx10 buses are already too full before they reach West 231st St. and Broadway, and often those waiting cannot get on the bus and have to wait for the next” Said Assemblyman Dinowitz “People who are able to get on the bus must pack in like cattle, which is unhealthy not to mention unsafe”
Thousands of people rely on the Bx10 to get to and from work everyday and they should not have to either suffer this severe overcrowding or risk being late. The MTA needs to provide additional Bx10 service and make the commute of many of my constituents more bearable.
Perhaps the state and city should provide the proper funding to the MTA which they currently do not. Then instead of a fare increase riders can pay what the service is worth, as they did when Assemblyman Dinowitz rode mass transit last.
