The B11, a mockery of public transportation

leave a comment »

I am sure that most of you, at one time or another, have taken the B11 to travel around in Brooklyn. This is a problem which stretches back as far as I can remember needing to take the B11 regularly.

Since I take it consistantly during the week I find it appalling to the point that I see that it cannot even be counted on for the times you need it to arrive.

It might not be the fault entirely of the MTA, but someone is indeed at fault. How else can you explain the two, three, and sometimes even four B11s arriving at the same time? How many times have you seen a B11 ‘out of service’ rushing by and then having to wait another 20 minutes for a bus that should of arrived 10 minutes earlier.

As citizens, taxpayers, and riders of Public Transportation we need to realize that we should not have to endure any form of bad service with the busses. No matter what excuses there might be, it should be the MTAs responsibility to correct the monitor the situation. There is no reason why I see B6s run regularly and not the B11s or for that matter any other bus line (except for the B3 but lets not even try that line for now)

I encourage all of you. Do a search, get your councilman’s address, fax, phone number and start calling. Email or do however you wish to contact the MTA. If you are like me and have to stand in the freezing cold for over a half hour for a bus that has yet to show…you should stand up and do your civic duty.
