This morning my wife was hoping to take the bus to an appointment and the bus never came. She ended up driving.
Why it Matters
- South Boston is parking is competitive. If the neighborhood does not have reliable public transit, more people are going to buy cars making it worse.
- People with cars will use them more, polluting the city and releasing carbon into the atmosphere.
By the Numbers
- According to the MBTA the 9 bus has a 64% reliability rating over the past month.
- On Sept 18, 2022 the 9 bus only arrived for 35% of its scheduled departure times.
Look for Patterns
The least reliable time for the 9 bus is typically on weekends.
