HEMPSTEAD - Nassau's NICE bus service is getting poor reviews from disabled riders who say the buses' accommodations just aren't up to speed. A coalition of disabled riders surveyed two-thirds of the 300-bus fleet and came up with poor reviews in several areas. The report card gives NICE a 'C' for wheelchair lifts that don't work, for overall safety and for reliability. Trips that took longer than they used to got a 'D' grade. The group gave NICE an 'F' grade in one area that's especially important to them: the buses don't announce stops visually or audibly, which is required by the Americans with Disabilities Act. A Veolia Transportation spokesman says the NICE operator has been actively improving the system, particularly in areas that affect disabled riders. However, many in the coalition argue that's just not true.Nassau purchases 45 new buses for NICE system
