Bus cuts leave LI commuters stranded
It may have been a rough ride to work for thousands of commuters yesterday as service was cut on several Long Island Bus lines.
Eleven MTA bus lines on the Island were eliminated and service on seven other lines were scaled back.
The cuts are part of the MTA's effort to close an $800 million budget gap.
Bus riders who spoke to News 12 Long Island say they now have to take taxi cabs, something they say they just cannot afford.
