Combine BX6 with BX5 so that revised BX6 route would go from 158th Street/Riverside Drive, Manhattan to Pelman Bay Park Station and the Mall at Bay Plaza. Extend BX11 and/or BX35 south along Southern Blvd. to Food Center Drive, Hunts Point. and alternate other (BX11 or BX35) route would terminate near Bruncker Blvd./163rd Street to replace southern section of current BX6 route.

Select bus service will ONLY, I repeat only, help the bx6 if the buses will run more frequently. This bus line's passenger count was inconsiderately thought out. Ppl who live in this area have to get off before their actual stop many times because it ends up being faster to walk after paying $2.75 (which has the possibility of going up to $3 in March). This is on a regular weekday when the Yankees aren't even playing. If the buses will run far apart then thats just a secure way to make sure the bus will ride by upcoming stops reading "NEXT BUS PLEASE." Many people take this to hunts pt to avoid multiple transfers to reach the 6. Of course. Thanks.

It is redundant, both routes have a stop less than a block away, they are prone to causing traffic backups, barely any boarding or offboarding is done at this bus stop, the best alternative is to rip that pole out and remove that bus stop.

LED Streetlighting needed in this intersection to better increase the visibility of the intersecting streets, at night it is really unsafe and I feel that to promote safety for drivers and pedestrians the DOT needs to add LED Fixtures to this intersection.

There is no doubt that the BX 6 needs bus lanes throughout. Considering peak traffic volumes, it might be better to place the bus lane along the curb (removing the parking), instead of making it offset (outside moving lane). Between Westchester Ave and Bruckner Blvd. Just ban parking for the times with the heaviest traffic volumes (7 AM-7 PM). Not many commercial businesses along this section, they could load/unload around the corner (in designated loading zones).

Girlfriend was hit by a car on this corner while riding a bicycle. Sideswiped by an erratic driver. Bus lanes could calm traffic and speed up bus. We could also use red light/speed cameras or some kind of CCTV because the driver blew the light and rode up Rogers Place in the wrong direction. Hit and run.

The bx6 bus 90% of the time is super crowded. Its a struggle for people with walkers or wheelchairs to get on or off the bus. The bus has that staircase in the back which is a hazard. The aisle is narrow and you can barely squeeze by to get to the back of the bus. Nobody wants yo stand on the stairs, in case there is a sudden stop, you could easily fall. The bus stops are usually crowded with no form of a line. I think the bx6 bus during peak times could use the long extended bus and it should also have select bus service.

The best way to implement SBS is to combine the Bx5 and Bx6 routes (call it the Bx45 SBS). The route should run from Yankee Stadium to Bay Plaza at All Times in order to relieve pressure on the Bx6 which is to travel into Manhattan and to Hunts Point.

All of this talk about the main challenges of the line, namely in the Yankee Stadium, Courthouses,and Southern Blvd areas, this area here, by the Food Center, is seldom talked about. What are we going to do about these fine folks that work here or in the general area? Yes, it's nice to combine the Bx6 and Bx5 into one SBS line, but let's not forget this area of the line, where many people work.

Why not just combine the BX 5 and 6? Many people transfer from the BX 5 to BX 6 at this location to access the west Bronx and vice versa. Riders looking to access the 2 and 5 trains could instead use Intervale Ave or walk to Simpson Street.

At this stop the Select Bus Service should continue along the Bx5 route and make limited stops along that route to Bay Plaza. Local Service to Hunts Point can be made by a branch of the Bx13, and the Bx11/Bx35. Local service on the Bx5 should run from White Plains Road to Yankee Stadium.

Multiple Buses Arrive Together
11/30/2015 - 15:47

The Bx6 NEEDS artics because of the overcrowding that occurs due to bunching issues. Buses often arrive in packs of 2 or 3 buses at a time leading to some buses being overcrowded, while others are almost empty. The bunching issues, combined with traffic congestion just exacerbates the problem further. The frequencies need to be improved in addition the adding artics. All of these things along with payment in advance should help, and there should also be signal priority used on the line to speed up buses. These buses spend too much time at traffic lights and crawl from stop to stop. I often outwalk the Bx6 from the BxM4 express bus to my final destination, which is roughly a 10 - 15 minute walk. Finally, fare enforcement is needed. There is RAMPANT farebeating on this line, which may be causing a lower count of how many people actually use the line and may account for why frequencies aren't as high as they should be.

A SBS bus on the 6 bus line would be very welcome and it would hopefully help with the multiple number of buses that tend to show up together esp. in the mornings. The bus is extemely crowded and we could use the "double long" buses on this route as well like on the 41 SBS line!

This route definitely needs to be revamped to keep up with the growing population of the South Bronx. The buses for this route are too small and always over capacity. SBS is a gteat idea. Express buses can service the main stops such as 161st/River Ave, Third Ave/163rd, Huntspoint etc. My communte is 30 minutes longer due to overcrowed buses. To hear that change will soon come to the Bx6 bus route is wonderful news and long overdue.
