Please bring signs, stories, testimony, model buses, whatever you’ve got! Byford recently announced the MTA’s new “Bus Action Plan,” a strong plan to improve bus service in New York City, with efforts to speed up buses, reduce board times, and much more. As part of the plan, we promised to take a hard look at new routes. So here’s our chance to put the B71 at the top of his list. So I hope to see you there!
