Please take a moment to read my Staten Island Railway Rider Report; just as in my past reports, I go right to the commuter, and the commuters have spoken, it is my hope is they will once again be heard. Most Staten Island Railway riders noted the lack of newsstands and metro card machines, litter, closed waiting rooms, darkness and lack of security cameras or personnel at their stations, while bemoaning the deteriorating connections to their buses and ferry connections. The report will be distributed to commuters, elected officials, transportation advocates, and Administration officials.
For many of you, especially those living far from a subway line or the Staten Island Rapid Transit, express buses are a necessary part of your daily commute. It's a lifeline to and from work or school, which is why I decided to take on the task of studying the quality of your express bus ride.
