Governor Cuomo and NYC Mayor de Blasio announced a proposal to transform the MTA with a joint endorsement of congestion pricing, a plan to reorganize the MTA and fare enforcement.
The City of Long Beach has made drastic cuts to the municipal bus system that went into effect three days after the announcement, with no public meetings. The cuts include terminating Point Lookout Service, terminating the Shoppers Special, cancelling the East Loop and West Loop weekend service, and terminating all weekend access to paratransit service.
Please consider signing our petition, sharing it and / or volunteering with us to conduct bus rider outreach at the bus station.
Long Island Streets is assisting with bus rider outreach, securing signs in Spanish (update: they have been posted), posting signs at bus stops and, more importantly, making emails and phone calls every day to every elected leader.
This is not about lack of bus funding, this is about politics.
