Commuters weigh in on cuts at hearing
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority held a public hearing Monday for Long Islanders to voice their concerns about possible service cuts.
Residents weighed in on the proposed bus and train service changes, as well as the possible layoffs, at Chateau Briand in Carle Place.
Commuters say changes to service could make their travels more difficult. The MTA may cut nearly a dozen Long Island Bus routes and reduce branch service across the Island to close a $750 million budget gap.
Monday's meeting is the first in a series. The next will be held in Riverhead March 8.
