On Wednesday, April 25th, the NYCTRC held a Bus Forum featuring a panel of NYC Transit’s head of Buses, Darryl Irick, and his senior staff. The event was held at 2 Broadway, Manhattan, from 5pm to 7pm. The last Bus Forum was held at the Queens Borough Hall in 2008. The Forum location is rotated among the five boroughs.
Over a 100 people attended and over 40 riders got to address the group with their comments and questions. Topics included operation of accessible ramps, buses not pulling to the curb, Select Bus Service and pleas for service restoration. Comments are being compiled, along with NYCT’s responses. The program was video taped and this record is being edited so that it can be posted on the web.
NYCTRC members attending were: Andrew Albert (Chair and MTA Board member), Michael J. Sinansky (Vice Chair), William K. Guild (PCAC Vice Chair), Trudy L. Mason and Edith M. Prentiss.
