Where I live, no one thinks it's wrong to get out the front door. Occasionally the bus driver won't even bother to open the rear door!

There have been time I've wanted to tell drivers that passengers ought to exit from the rear.

Where to begin...lol. They are horribly unreliable. Lots of work needs to be put into spacing the stops better and designing more efficient routes. The select buses are a good idea but I feel like they are being set up to fail. The current pay system is not a good match for the select bus. Ohh and what happened with signal priority?! That was a big part of the hoopla around the initial launch of the select routes but it has been put on that mta backburner...

Some Q46 bus drivers need to stop "chilling out" while the line is halfway up the block. People need to start moving in.
