The Slowest Bus in NYC

Every year The Straphangers Campaign ranks and rates the slowest and most unreliable bus routes in NYC. This year’s “winner” of the dreaded “Pokey” award — given to the slowest ride in the city — was Harlem’s M102 bus.

The M102 “beat” the next slowest lines (Bx19, B35, Q32, and the S38) by achieving a 5mph average speed.

The most unreliable bus service, and the recipient of the “Schleppie” award, is the B12 line, but Harlem’s M100 was also on this list.
