Bus riders and electeds unload on MTA officials at Clinton Hill town hall

Originally published in Brooklyn Daily Eagle

An incensed crowd packed a meeting hall at St. Joseph’s College in Clinton Hill Wednesday night to ask why MTA officials planned to increase waiting times and crowding on two neighborhood bus routes: the B38 and B54.

The town hall was sponsored by Assemblymember Walter Mosley, who was joined by City Council member Laurie Cumbo and State Sen. Velmanette Montgomery.

In light of the total Brooklyn bus network redesign that MTA has planned to begin later in the fall, Montgomery said that MTA should hold off on the bus route changes.

“Why can’t we wait for the network redesign?” she asked. “Make no changes until then. You give us enough lead time, we can let our constituents know that we are going to hold these meetings.”
