Tell the MTA How You Feel About Changes to M14 Bus Route

Posted on: April 2nd, 2019 at 5:00 am by

In two months, Department of Transportation and the MTA will drastically change the M14 bus route. It’s a new Select Bus Service plan that will eliminate several “local” stops along the line.

Local politicians subsequently blasted the proposed changes to the crosstown bus line. They demanded supplemental local service similar to the M15 route along First and Second Avenues rather than the complete purge of local stops.

According to the MTA website, the M14A/D SBS change would eliminate the following local stops:

  • Along Grand Street
  • East Houston Street
  • Down Avenue A/Essex Street
  • Avenue D/Columbia Street
  • Avenue C

As some readers have pointed out, many of these areas are populated with elderly residents who rely on the bus, and this increases the distance between stops without any local bus alternative.

And now is your turn to sound off. Both city agencies are at the 7th Precinct station house on Pitt Street tonight, 6pm to 8pm.

Or stop by the Transportation subcommittee of Community Board 2 this Thursday, NYU Silver Building, Room 520, 6:30pm.

Below is the full presentation deck:
