You'll notice it only runs on weekdays, 3 hours each in the morning and evening. That's pretty fraking pathetic. I flew back from the east coast last year on a Saturday and landed at 1pm. No buses, not even posted hours at the bus stop which is located alllllll the way north on the middle island.
I understand there is not a huge demand for mass transit, but the city really has to bite the bullet on some routes. All they have to do is run one shuttle in hour-long loops to connect downtown and/or passengers directly to their hotels. heck, charge $5 for it. But provide something.
Or at a very minimum, make the taxi/Uber stands more prominent and user-friendly.
This I completely agree with.. And I think as passenger volume continues to grow- Eppley will likely surpass 4.5 million passengers setting a record for volume this year- better mass transit to and from the airport will come..
It's all about demand. And with increasing demand, improvements are typically a by-product...
