Bronx buses get awards for poor service

It's the honor commuters don't want their bus route to win. The latest Schleppie and Pokey awards are out for this year. 



The annual report from the Straphangers Campaign gave the Schleppie Award to the Bx19 bus. Traveling at an average speed of 4.8 mph from the Bronx Zoo to Harlem, it is the slowest bus service in the borough. 



The winner of the Pokey Award goes to the Bx15 bus, which the campaign says has an unreliable service rate of 21 percent. 



Most bus riders who spoke with News 12 say they agree with this year's results.
