Dw bus wait times are nothing!

Got in line for my bus home from NYC at 5. I expect to catch the 7:55 bus.

Yep, it's those people that are used to using public transportation that have no issue with Disney buses. And lets not get into that 'public vs private' discussion.

Guess that puts it all into perspective, doesn't it? A three hour wait to catch a bus home after a long day at work. How long is your bus ride home? Makes me very thankful for my 5 minute 'commute'.

If there are such long lines of people waiting and left behind for the next bus then there should be more service.

Including yet more bus service to make up for the shutdown of the PATH (NYC to NJ) trains after Hurricane Sandy.

Do people fail to please move back all through the town so the driver takes off with people left waiting at the stop and also a lot of empty space inside between people standing in the back of the bus, like they do at Disney?

They are running more service, but they don't have an unlimited supply of busses either.
