MINEOLA - ? Nassau County bus riders rallied today in hopes of getting some definitive answers before a private company can take over Long Island Bus. Veolia Transportation is expected to begin running the company by Jan. 1. The Tri-State Transportation Campaign wants Nassau lawmakers to support a Bus Rider Bill of Rights. The bill includes no fare hikes or service cuts in the next five years. The group also says Nassau needs to set aside more than $2.5 million for the LI Bus in its budget.
