Legislator Elect Solages
On LI Bus 

Please remember that the fight to Save LI Bus is still alive and we need your help.

After months of demands for a public hearing on Nassau County's plans to privatize its bus service, the County is finally giving riders a chance to voice their concerns. At 1pm on Monday, December 5, the Nassau County Legislature will host a public hearing on the proposed contract with Veolia Transportation. As it stands, the contract cedes too much power to a private company and leaves riders and transit workers vulnerable to fare increases and service changes. In fact:

--Veolia has the authority to determine service levels in Nassau County (rather than the county government or the transit authority).
--Riders and taxpayers could be subject to quarterly fare hikes, service cuts and demands for greater public subsidy.
--Riders and transit workers will have no voice on the Transit Advisory Committee.

On Monday, the Nassau County's Rules Committee approved the Veolia contract, and Presiding Officer Peter Schmitt indicated that he wants the Legislature to move swiftly on the matter. There may even be a vote immediately after the hearing, so be sure to come (1550 Franklin Ave, Mineola, NY) and make your voice heard!
