Bus Riders' Union Announces New Incident Report Sheet

Meeting after meeting, we have heard concerns from our members about the bus service. Some riders are concerned with the length of their commutes on fixed-route buses, others with their long waits for Able-Ride. To advocate more effectively for better service for bus riders, the Bus Riders' Union has decided to launch a new incident report sheet to accurately support you and your concerns. Click here to fill out form. To download a form that you can then print out and distribute, click here.

If you have an incident that you would like to report, please do so using our online form. We will then follow up with you about the incident, see if there are any violations to the Americans with Disabilities Act or Civil Rights Act, and respond accordingly.

Transit Advisory Committee Meets Today

By Anita Halasz

Nassau County Transit Advisory Committee Scheduled to Meet Today: Thursday, August 2nd, 2012. The TAC is a committee created to oversee the county’s transit system since the January 1st, 2012 privatization.

While this meeting is open to the public, little has been done to notify bus riders. NICE does not have an announcement posted on their website, despite their promise to make this information available, and there have been no posted announcements at bus stations, bus stops or on buses. 

A report/proposal on the 2012 transit budget will be presented at the meeting. We anticipate that this report will reveal important information regarding bus routes, service and fares. As bus riders, we need to come to this meeting to make our voices heard.

The meeting will begin at 4:15pm and will be held at NICE’s office (First Floor Training Conference Room) at 700 Commercial Avenue in Garden City.
