According to the article the following items are proposals and proposals only.
Nothing has been set in stone. Hopefully these old eyes catch everything from the map since there is no listing

FOR ELIMINATION

1 - N57

2 - N58

3 - N1

4- -N2

5 - N8

6- N31

7 - N33 (There goes the trip to the "Beaches of Rock and Long"

8 - N14

9 - N36

10 - N14

11 - N62

12 - N88

13 - N78

14 - N79

15 - N80

16 - N81

17 - N45

18 - N54

19 - N46

20 - N50

21 - N55

22 - N73

23 - N74

24 - N19

25 - N47


CONTINUING WEEKDAY SERVICE, BUT NO WEEKEND SERVICE

1 - N16

2 - N25


Please forgive the scrambled nature of the postings, but tax season is hectic and I wanted to get an answer to Steve's question up ASAP.

The article claims that the elimination of those 25 routes will only affect 16,000 riders. No mention if there should be route mergers and /or reroutes to help those 16, 000.

I don't get the reasoning for cutting the N19, N79. I do understand cutting either the N54/55, N80/81 since they have the same start/end points.

To bad that the City Of Long Beach couldn't take over the N33, since don't they run the N69?

At least 7 of those routes cross over to Suffolk.
