Portion of the route to Jefferson Valley Mall cut in 2 weeks! The MTA dont seem so bad now, at least we get advance warning. The future looks bleak for Bee-line under Astorino.

For once I am glad to be in Nassau instead of Westchester.

You should reword your title to say "#12 line riders stranded". It looks like it literally says 12 riders will be stranded and since the article says low ridership is the reason for the cut, it will sound like it makes sense LOL

But it is a shame to cut all those routes.....

Well I cant edit it now...
Also the W76 will be eliminated in June. Your new County Executive is sure getting off to a bloody start.

Lawrence Salley and the guys at libery lines are clueless to which routes should be cut and which should have extensions.

That air link bus would have worked very well if It had made stops in some of the neighborhoods it passed through (Especially along Lake St. in White Plains).

that 1x is a waste, if anything the 3 should run all day instead of rush hour and service should be improved on the 7, 20, and 13 and 5 lines. Those buses are too congested and the demand is actually there (especially with the 7).

I think in general some routes even need to be reworked. I can remember taking a survey years ago when they were toying with the idea of bringing the metro card system to the bee line (there was a significant demand). It took so long just to implement that, which is a sign to me it'll be another 5 or 7 years before liberty lines actually does something of value again.
