Mta Public Hearing on Proposed Service Changes to Be Held at College of Staten Island -- Tuesday, March 3

The MTA has proposed service cuts, scheduled to go into effect in June, which would be devastating to the commuters on Staten Island.

Following hearings, one or more of the following proposed changes in level of service could be implemented:

Discontinue S42, S60, S67, X6, X9, X13, X16, X18 and X20.

Discontinue S54 and S76 on weekends.

Reduce operating hours of S54, S57, S66 and X1.

Reroute or discontinue portion of S40/90, S52 and X14.

Senator Lanza has been fighting these cuts which are particularly harmful and insulting to the people of Staten Island who are already underserved.

This threat comes after they raised taxes on the businesses and people of Staten Island which they claimed were necessary to avoid such cuts. Senator Lanza opposed those new taxes and is continuing his fight against service cuts for Staten Island. Lanza urges everyone who can to attend this public hearing and have their voices heard.

The Hearing will be held:

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010, 6:00p.m.
