The MTA has created a bus bridge (or an armada or flotilla, depending on what insane news source you read), a fleet of over 300 buses taking commuters from the Barclays Center to Midtown Manhattan. I live about a 20 minute walk from the Barclays Center, and work about a 20 minute walk from the drop off points in Midtown.
Some people said they waited for 90 minutes for a bus this morning.
Guys, I know I should be trying harder, and I am super not into it. I stayed home, and I have been working nonstop since 9am. Well, I did stop to go get a coffee. I think a 2.5 hour morning commute, and possibly worse on the way home, make no sense. I can get so much done here, with no fuss.
I appreciate and am so very much in awe of the MTA. It’s one of my favorite things about living in New York. I am so happy that the trains are coming back. I just don’t want to ride on one with a mob of angry New Yorkers for a few more days.
Stay safe and dry!
