How about the Bronx Bus routes the Bronx is losing -- including what I consider a very important bus route, the BX 34, which connects Woodlawn, Norwood, Bedford Park and Fordham? And connects Woodlawn to the subway?

There's a few other buses being cancelled in the Bronx, and I don't know them, and so don't know if they are expendable or not, but I don't think the 34 is expendable.

I haven't been able to find an article which really details the MTA's doomsday budget impact on the Bronx... Can anyone suggest one?
