Able-Ride service extended another 30 days
A judge extended a restraining order against the MTA today, allowing its Able-Ride bus service to operate for another 30 days.
The Long Island Bus service provides door-to-door services for disabled Nassau residents and is on the MTA?s chopping block. The MTA decided to cut money from the program to fill its budget gap.
The hearing was held to determine whether the MTA should be allowed to end the program. The restraining order expired today.
The judge also offered the MTA a chance to hold a public hearing on the issue, but it declined, saying a hearing would be too expensive.
