Quicklink: G Is For Give Us Shuttle Bus Service!

Lincoln Restler, the co-author of this petition, writes:

In the wake of an unprecedented natural disaster, we are greatly appreciative of the MTA’s remarkable restoration of 84% of subway service. Yet we are extremely concerned about the lack of mass transit access for residents along the L and G subway lines. These trains are not redundant – but essential lifelines for hundreds of thousands of Brooklynites.

As we await the draining of these subway tunnels, we hope the MTA will swiftly expand bus service. We strongly suggest implementation of temporary shuttle bus service along the L and G routes to connect stranded residents to active subway lines.

Speaking as someone whose husband required three hours to get to work today*, I wholeheartedly concur. Sign it and share it, Greenpointers!

As opposed to our Mayor: his “commute” was a mere 25 minutes.

Although I have featured this item before (albeit as a reader contribution) I cannot resist doing again. Why, you ask? Because I think it is neat and it appears to have grown significantly since Halloween!

What I am especially fond of is solitary pine sprig— perhaps in observance of the season? I can only hope so. I give this “arrangement” two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Miss Heather
