It’s apparent to just about everyone that state legislation enacted several years ago to tame the intercity bus industry is not having the desired impact. So tomorrow night, Community Board 3 is convening an Intercity Bus Town Hall. Here’s the advisory the board sent out this morning:
Community Board 3 supports permitting of designated bus stops for interstate buses to ensure safety for community members, including pedestrians and riders. There are buses continuing to operate outside regulations creating safety and quality of life problems. Please join CB3 in this town hall to clarify problems and help identify potential solutions. Participating in panels will be NY Police Dept., Dept. of Transportation, Dept. of City Planning, Council Member Margaret Chin, State Senator Daniel Squadron, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer (in formation) The town hall will conclude with an opportunity to hear from the public. Chinese interpretation will be provided.
The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at P.S. 124, 40 Division St.
