  • “The expanded Newburgh Area Transit service would double the number of buses operating the services, double the frequency of buses along expanded routes, improve the Northside and Southside routes,…”
    It’s been alluded to that the existing buses currently ride near empty. If that’s the case, I guess you can rationalize this perceived lack of demand due to the lack of posted schedules because there aren’t enough buses to maintain a schedule so why bother with a schedule at all in the first place until there are more buses to necessitate the need to post schedules.
    ‘Er…sounds like channel stuffing imo. ‘Lose $s on every sale but make it up on volume’.

  • agree….Behemoth Buses still rumbling through residential north/south corridors like Grand St. Hardly encouraging ridership! Smaller buses — 30/35-passenger ones — have been recommended by citizens for years. Big Buses on commercial corridors. if you’re a rider, bring suggestions to the public meeting. if you’re not a rider, tell OCTC what would make you one. Thanks NR for posting announcement! Hey, let’s all take public transport to the meeting!
