Bus Riders Left in the Dark on Upcoming Hearing


MEMORANDUM

To: Nassau County Bus Transit Committee
Re: Upcoming Public Hearing
Date: April 24, 2012
From: Long Island Bus Riders’ Union

The Long Island Bus Riders’ Union has been organizing for the rights of transit riders since the service became privatized in January of this year. Despite our public advocacy, we, along with many other transportation advocacy organizations, were left in the dark on upcoming public hearings of the Nassau County Bus Transit Committee.

The notice of the hearing, dated April 18th, 2012, was not released in any public newspaper or put on a single bus in order to adequately inform bus riders. Not to mention that none of the notices of the hearing were posted in Spanish, nor were their audible announcements made on buses for visually impaired riders.

The hearing announcement was not given with “reasonable notice” to the public, a guideline required by the Federal Transit Administration for entities that are receiving federal funding for bus service.

We anticipate that the Bus Transit Committee will hold many more meetings in the upcoming months, and so we recommend:

·      At least one month notice for public hearings in English in Spanish
·      Public Hearing Announcements on buses and at bus stations
·      Publication of Hearings in both ethnic and general Long Island-based newspapers

In order for bus riders and the general public to be present at public hearings, we need to be given adequate notice so that we can readjust our schedules.

Thank you,

Long Island Bus Riders’ Union

The main thing you have to do is to consider the occasion for the need of employing a limousine service, with the goal you should come up to the thought of what color or kind of woking limo hire you needed. So you need to clarify what you truly wanted and needed in renting a limousine service.
