SENATOR MARTY GOLDEN URGES THE COMMUNITY TO ATTEND RALLIES TO PROTEST OUR BUS SERVICE CUTS AND THE RECENT FARE HIKES.
WHEN: Tuesday October 19, 2010
TIME: 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM
WHERE: Corner of Bay Ridge Avenue and 3rd Avenue
WHY: Former stop of B37, X 37 and weekend express bus.
WHEN: Thursday October 21, 2010
TIME: 9:30 AM
WHERE: Kings County Supreme Court
360 Adams Street, Brooklyn
(on Cadman Plaza West side of building)
WHY: To show Judge Kenneth P. Sherman what kind of impact these cuts have had on our community.
Senator Golden sent multiple letters to MTA Chairman Jay Walder with suggestions for alternate service. Senator Golden forwarded numerous emails to the MTA’s Government Affairs office detailing the problems with our bus service cuts. Senator Golden spoke before MTA board hearings detailing the devastating effects these cuts would have. He hosted a town hall meeting with executives of the MTA so they could hear directly from riders.
Unfortunately, no one at the MTA listened and now they raised our fares. AGAIN! Let our voices be heard by Judge Sherman at Kings County Supreme Court. Senator Golden hired expert counsel to assist with the pending lawsuit. For more information please contact Senator Golden’s office at 718-238-6044.
