NICE? Well not if you depend on some bus routes in Nassau County!

On December 31, 2011, Nassau County decided to end it's relationship with the MTA putting an end to MTA Long Island Bus service. The MTA wanted $35 Million more from Nassau County, and County Executive Ed Mangano refused to pay them, saying a private company, Veolia, could operate the bus service for much less. Ed Mangano told bus riders their service would not change, but just a few months into the new service, Veolia has announced a budget shortfall.

Now riders on many routes will see less buses, leading to more crowded conditions and slower rides. Hardest hit will be Glen Cove, which will lose N21 service outside of rush hours, and see the N27 outside of rush hours run as a shuttle between Glen Cove and Roslyn, where riders will transfer to a rerouted N23 that will serve Roosevelt Field and Hempstead. All of these routes are busy routes, yet their service is being sacrified, not only making an already isolated Glen Cove suffer even more, but extending an already long bus ride for folks and making already crowded buses more packed than ever. Yet certain routes, like the N80 and N81, which are some of the emptiest routes in the County, retain ALL of their bus service. Coincidence? Hardly! Massapequa keeps it's half hourly Mon-Sat bus service to Hicksville because that's Nassau County Presiding Officer Peter Schmitt's district! Upset? Well you should be. Veolia says they care about rider comments. Please remind them of that...
