At the Corona Avenue and 91st Place bus stop in Elmhurst, commuters contend daily with swarms of students in a scramble to climb aboard a Ridgewood-bound Q58.
"You have to wait like 30 minutes or more. The buses are super full and we get to school late," said one rider.
"Mornings are crazy because all the students need to get on the buses," said another rider.
The overcrowding occurs daily from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., with students trying to get to school, commuters trying to make it to work and many of the buses too packed for anyone to get anywhere fast.
The MTA says some help is on the way. It plans to start putting empty buses into service at the stop but didn't say when, meaning the morning commute isn't getting any easier for now.
