LI Bus Riders' Union First Meeting!


Nassau County elected officials just voted to privatize Long Island Bus, signing a contract with Veolia Transportation.

Bus riders should not be left to worry that they will be stranded without bus service. We should not have to worry about fare increases and service cuts. We should not have to choose between food and a bus pass, or be forced to drop out of school because no buses will take us there.

Our demands for the County are exemplified by our Riders’ Bill of Rights, which include:

1.     No service cuts and fare hikes for at least 5 years.
2.     Free transfers between county buses and New York City subways and buses, as exists today.
3.     Safe and efficient service for all riders, provided by highly trained and qualified union employees.
4.     Equipment that is clean, modern, and in a state of good repair.
              5.   Transparent and responsive administration of service, which includes giving riders and the broader public a way to provide input into how county transit is run.

Tuesday, January 17th at 6pm
First LI Bus Riders’ Union Meeting.

*1199 SEIU Building, next to Hicksville Train Station
