TOMORROW: Oversight Hearing For The G Train
The Save The G Coalition has announced that Committee Chair John Liu has organized an oversight hearing regarding G train service tomorrow, April 8, at 1:00 p.m. Per their press release:
Witnesses from the MTA will be asked to speak about ridership data, plans for the future, conditions, and other issues regarding G line service, and the public is also encouraged to testify about their own experiences.
Oversight: What is the MTA doing to improve service on the G line?
Resolution #1262: Calling upon MTA to immediately improve service on the G line and to not implement any service cuts.
For all of you who’ve been endlessly frustrated by the roller coaster ride that is G line service levels, Save The G is asking you to turn out in force on April 8th. Riders from Queens AND Brooklyn have been affected by the MTA’s various management decisions and random service changes.
WHAT: Oversight Hearing For The Crosstown Local
WHEN: Tuesday, April 8, 2008 at 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Council Chambers, City Hall
HOW (do I get there?): Chambers Street Stop of the J/M/Z, Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Station of the 4/5/6, City Hall Station of the R/W or Park Place Station of the 2/3
WHY: Because the G is taxed enough as is. Imagine what is going to happen when people start moving into all the condominiums being built in the Garden Spot and around McCarren Park.
