Sick of erratic M15 arrivals, bus route problems, lack of countdown clocks, or the like? Now is your chance to sound off about the pitfalls of MTA bus service on the Lower East Side. State Senator Squadron is hosting a town hall tonight dedicated to the bus system and urging community folk to attend. The goal is to address and crowdsource ways to improve service.

The so-called “MTA Bus Town Hall” happens tonight, 6:30pm at the Manny Cantor Center, 197 East Broadway. It’s the first of two major community town halls scheduled in the next couple weeks regarding matters of neighborhood buses (i.e. Chinatown Buses on December 1).

The MTA town hall is held in cooperation with Congresswomen Maloney and Velázquez, Public Advocate James, Comptroller Stringer, Manhattan Borough President Brewer, State Senator Hoylman, Assemblymembers Glick, Kavanagh, & Silver, Councilmembers Chin, Johnson and Mendez, Manhattan Community Boards 1, 2, & 3, and Riders Alliance. Cantonese and Mandarin translation will be available.

What problems with local MTA bus service would you like to see resolved?
