Mapping NYC Bus Cutbacks

Posted in Uncategorized by michaelwalch on 29 June, 2010

This interactive map from the NYTimes includes a great geographic analysis of the bus system of New York City, on the dawn of big service cuts.  It’s a rare opportunity to see in per-rider numbers the type of operating decisions transportation agencies have to make.  Since most New Yorkers take public transit, there are also clues about demographics in these maps as well.  Enjoy.
