One of the Garden Spot’s more colorful citizens voices his displeasure at the absence of Crosstown Local service. Or something. In any case, keep those signatures coming, north Brooklynites!

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.

And Now A Word From The MTA

That’s right Greenpointers: Crosstown Local service has yet to be restored.* Now factor in the East River Ferry will not be servicing the India Street Pier…

and, well, you get the idea. Plan accordingly, Garden Spotters!

*As it would happen I bumped into our City Councilman, Steve Levin, this morning. He was headed to the Church of the Ascension (which you may recall is operating a food drive for our friends in need as a result of hurricane Sandy). He too was less than pleased about about the state of mass transit hereabouts.

 

G Is For…

Gee, where the hell is it?

The above-depicted is a map the MTA has issued apprising its patrons of subway service slated to be restored tomorrow, November 1st, 2012. As you can see our beloved Crosstown Local is, um, MIA. Or would that be MII (Missing In Inaction)? In any case, those of you who have been enjoying a furlough from your daily commute (and want to forward it to your supervisors) can grab the link for this map by clicking here.*

UPDATE, 7:25 p.m.: Here’s a Service Alert from the ever awesome Chair of Community Board 1’s Transportation Committee.

Thanks Willie!

UPDATE, 11:32 p.m.: I cannot believe I forgot that the East River Ferry will be resuming service tomorrow as well! You can view their schedule by clicking here.

 

*Props go out to the incomparable Bitchcakes for bringing this to my attention. Thanks!

Do any of you, gentle readers, care to take a stab at this urban artifact? Quite frankly I’m (still) kind of speechless…
