Update on Bus Cuts

The Brooklyn Paper is reporting that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, at the public hearing on Wednesday that we told you about, released a revised list of proposed service cuts. Unfortunately, the news is still worrying-to-bad for residents of the Columbia Waterfront District. The MTA still plans to eliminate the B71 bus and restructure the B61.

The Wednesday hearing was one of eight held last week in the five boroughs and Westchester and Nassau counties. The NY Daily News is reporting that seven of the 16 members of the MTA board didn't bother showing up to most of the hearings, and only three members attended them all. Pair this with the recent purge of of rider and worker representatives from the board, and we've got a situation on our hands.
