LI Bus Service Reductions Averted

Thanks to funding made available by the State Senate, the MTA will be able to operate full Long Island Bus and Able-Ride service through the end of the year. Service had been threatened due to a shortfall in funding from Nassau County. The County has decided to privatize the bus operation by January 1, 2012, and the MTA will be working to ensure the smoothest possible transition to the private operator.
