Straphangers, our favorite blog about everything NYC public transit related, recently crunched some numbers and found out which buses in NYC are the slowest, fastest, and most unreliable. According to the data (speed and reliability) both the slowest and most-unreliable buses are Manhattan routes.
The “winner” of the 2014 Pokey is the M79 crosstown. It had the slowest bus speed at an excruciating 3.2 miles per hour as clocked at 12 noon on a weekday.
The “winner” of the 2014 Schleppie is the local M15 with 33 percent of buses arriving with big gaps in service or bunched together.
Even though Manhattan buses suck, the other boroughs didn’t fare so well either. Be sure to click through to the report for the full results.
