    Do you have community boards? You need to work the city government.

    In the South Bronx we have great service, a good as the upper east side, though locals have been making an issue of it for years and people (who came here before me) have fought hard to get it right.

    I'm just saying there is no reason for your service to be any different from any other neighborhood that's the same distance from the city center.

      I moved. And moved again. :-)

      Jessie Jackson the Third is on the case, though.

      Futurebird, you ought to research this for your book. I know I saw an article a decade ago showing the funding patterns for recent mass transit investments - you know all those new, expensive rail lines in places like suburban DC and L.A. The money goes to lines serving the rich suburbs even though they need transit the least. The poor make do with the same ratty old buses and cuts to service.
