ADVANCE STAFF WRITER

 

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- State Sen. Diane Savino warned the MTA yesterday that talk of "any reduction in service on Staten Island will not be tolerated and is DOA should it hit the Senate floor."

The move also would save bus routes in Brooklyn and the Bronx that are near subway lines.
