Plan to nix NYC express bus revisited
In an effort to close a projected $166 million budget deficit, Westchester lawmakers recently proposed cancelling express bus service to Manhattan, but now they say there might be an alternative solution.
Service on the Bee-Line?s BxM4C bus could now be limited to peak hours only, instead of a previous proposal to cancel service entirely.
Legislators say the Westchester-to-Manhattan bus service costs $2 million annually and reducing or cancelling service would help close the budget gap.
Concerned riders have staged protests in opposition to service cuts.
Westchester County Transportation Commissioner Lawrence Salle says the county is committed to exploring alternatives to service cuts.
If a solution isn?t found, express service could stop running in June.
