MORRIS PARK - Some Bronx residents say the delays on the MTA express buses to and from Manhattan have been outrageous the past few months.

Veteran express bus rider Mark Doyle says he waited for more than an hour for an express bus to get to work that just never came.  He says he and other riders have noticed a sharp decline in express bus reliability.

Others, however, say it is all a matter of timing and that those who are complaining need to schedule their time better when they know there is heavy traffic.

The MTA says recent delays are due to extreme traffic conditions in Midtown Manhattan due to the U.N. General Assembly and other events.
