Why is bus route 427 in the morning late everyday? Shen suggests that students arrive at their bus stop 10 minutes prior to pickup time. If it is late everyday by up to 10 minutes then we are waiting 20 minutes for the bus to show up when it feels like it. This isn’t fun especially in the winter. Do they even realize that New York can get very cold? How hard is it to leave 10 minutes earlier to be on time?
A. We checked the GPS data for this particular bus from Dec 9 through Dec 16. GPS shows the first pickup is very consistent give or take 4 minutes. And the last pickup is also consistent give or take one minute. Dec 12, 2016 was the weather delay and all buses were running behind schedule. Please call us if you have specific information with regards to your own stop to help us gather your exact concerns so we can determine if in fact this bus running 10 minutes or more late.
