THE BRONX - According to bus riders in Classon Point, it has become a daily struggle to catch a ride on the Bx39 bus, which they say rarely runs as it's supposed to.

According to commuters, they regularly have to wait 35-40 minutes for the bus, even though it's scheduled to run every 10 minutes during peak hours. They also complain that when a bus finally shows up, there are often three or four of them in a row with barely any passengers.
