B38 & B54 Town Hall Meeting

B38 & B54 Town Hall

Assemblyman Mosley in partnership with Senator Montgomery and Majority Leader Member Cumbo would like to invite you to attend the B38 & B54 Town Hall regarding services changes. The Town Hall will be held on Wednesday, September 4th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm at St. Joseph’s College between Dekalb Avenue and Myrtle Avenue.  MTA representatives will be available for questions.  

In her August 8th, 2019 letter, Senator Montgomery called on the New York City Transit Authority to reverse the proposed changes and increase the frequency of bus service along the B38 and B54 routes. The Senator joins colleagues, constituents and community stakeholders in opposition to the proposed reduction in service along the B38 and the B54 bus routes.

In her letter to New York City Transit President Andy Byfor and MTA New York City Transit Department of Buses Executive Vice President Craig Cipriano, Senator Montgomery notes:

Any reduction in service resulting in greater wait times and overcrowded buses is an assault on the quality of life to people who need this bus service and do not have other transportation options.

The MTA’s Fast Forward Plan includes the evaluation and “redesign” of the New York City bus network. The Brooklyn Bus Redesign has not yet taken place. Therefore, these changes are simply premature. Why are we redesigning services when an evaluation of the Brooklyn bus network has yet to be initiated? I strongly oppose any change in service until the roots of the problem have been appropriately studied and identified.
