Ubiquitous Sign Of The Times, More Money, Less Service From MTA

These signs have popped up on just about every bus stop in Manhattan. The service cuts are coming and it doesn't look pretty. Take a close look next time you wait for a bus, and you'll see, it seems like every route is seeing cuts. Maybe this is just another Bloomberg plot to keep people thin? After all, if you rely on Buses like the M8 crosstown in the Village, there will be no weekend service, so you sure will be doing a lot more walking.
Aside from my general disgust at the ineptitude of the MTA to budget, I wonder what the guys at Freakonomics would have to say about the general loss of productivity? Then again, I am writing this as I, um, wait for the bus.
