Disabled Able-Ride users meet with officials
Long Island Bus officials met with disabled Long Island residents yesterday to help them determine how to get around once the Able-Ride program is cut.
Disabled groups have filed a suit to stop planned MTA cuts from ending Able-Ride, a door-to-door bus service. The program operates mostly on the North Shore.
Riders say they came to the informational meeting hoping to hear more from the MTA about its decision, but say they heard no indication of any change.
The cutbacks were expected to go into effect last Monday, but a judge agreed to block the move until a hearing Tuesday.
