BROOKLYN - With the Metropolitan Transportation Authority planning more cuts, many transit workers are reminding riders what commuting would be like without bus stops in an effort to stop those cuts.

The MTA plans to cut more than 611 bus stops citywide. The overhaul will mean the agency will add only 25 new stops to current bus lines for high-traffic areas.
