I rode the Downtown Connection “free” bus service yesterday, and experience some really concerning things. When I boarded the bus on Water Street, the drivers were still playing games and taking long breaks at Starbucks and not allowing passengers to board. But more concerning, I saw some real dirtbags on the bus.
On this particular bus ride, I saw some extremely cute young kids on the bus being escorted by their partners as they left the Blue School. Then, next to them were troublemaking teens. A woman sitting next to me who spoke Spanish told me that the teens were speaking in Spanish about hitting a passenger in the head, like the “Knockout game”.
Then, the woman, who lives in Gateway, had a good idea. She said that people should have to show an ID proving they live in Battery Park before being allowed in the bus. After all, the BPCA pays for the “free” buses.
