ANOTHER REASON TO SAVE THE EXPRESS BUS TO NYC
TODAYS MOSCOW TERRORIST ATTACK HIGHLIGHTS ANOTHER REASON WHY COMMUTERS NEED THE WESTCHESTER-MANHATTAN BUS
COMMUTERS NEED ALTERNATIVE TO TRAIN TO GET OUT OF CITY
Heightened alerts and potential threats every day (Moscow train station and heightened levels of security for grand central during the normal course of day to day) commuters deserve a travel alternative that is not considered a prime target in the event of a heightened alert.
In the event of a terrorist attack having a bus service as an alternative to the rails provides commuters with another way to leave NYC safely. After 911 one of the preferred ways to get out of the city was by bus. I have received a few unsolicited calls from residents of Greenburgh about this. This is a very valid point.
The Westchester-Manhattan bus must be saved. It’s my hope that the County Executive will reconsider the recommendation to eliminate the bus.
