BILL NUMBER:S6188

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the administrative code of the city of
New York, in relation to overnight school bus parking on city streets

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation will prohibit school
buses from parking on city streets overnight.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends the administrative code of the city of
New York by adding a new section 19-608 that prohibits school buses
operated by or pursuant to a contract with the board of education from
parking overnight on a city street.

Section 2 of the bill sets forth an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: School buses should not be allowed to overtake city
streets for use of parking such vehicles overnight.

Many residential neighborhoods that contain a school already bear the
burden of congestion on their local streets due to daily drop-offs and
pick-ups of school children during the week. This can often cause
significant difficulties for these residents in their ability to get
in and out of their homes and find parking in their neighborhoods.

A recent trend in certain neighborhoods has resulted in school buses
parking overnight only worsening an already difficult parking
situation on city streets. Residents should not be required to compete
with these large vehicles and the owners of these buses should be
required to provide necessary offsite overnight parking.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
