Somebody at Port Authority Transit must have a screw loose.
The series of bus and trolley changes include eliminating:
- 124 of 213 weekday bus routes.
- 55 of 100 Saturday bus routes.
- 26 of 75 Sunday and holiday bus routes.
Light-rail service would be trimmed by cutting hours of operation and increasing the time between trolleys. Besides reducing the number of daily transit vehicle hours, the changes would reduce the number of one-way vehicle trips by 24 percent and overall ridership by 11 percent, the authority has estimated.
