Beat The Heat By Riding A MTA City Bus

Last week the MTA released a report which trumpeted the fact that most NYC Subway cars are adequately air conditioned. Just a few days ago the MTA’s New York City Transit division released a similar report but this time for city buses. New York Daily News Transit Reporter Pete Donohue has the report:

Transit workers gauged the temperature on NYC Transit buses 2,200 times this summer and found the air to be chilled 96.5% of time, according to NYC Transit data.

In the most extensive monitoring of its kind by the agency, just 78 buses were deemed unacceptably warm, with temperatures of 78 degrees or higher.

Maybe I should ride the city bus more often considering how much I hate any type of hot weather. Give me near or below zero temperatures because I’m a winter baby!
