Yesterday we reported that the SPaCE Bloack Association is opposing several new applications from Chinatown bus companies; the companies are expected to go before Community Board 3’s transportation committee tomorrow night. Now they’ve also launched an online petition. It reads:

We, the members of the block association, SPaCE, along with other residents and citizens of our community are vehemently opposed to any more bus permits in our neighborhood.  The private bus system in Chinatown has created a de facto bus depot.  Under siege, our neighborhood has exceeded saturation with intercity stops.  There seems to be no end in sight.

More details regarding the petition can be found here.
