I heard last week from a MTA official that the MTA takeover plans include taking over Suffolk Transportation as they are in the same union TWU-Local 252 as Long Island Bus.
I did not want to tell this yutz to keep dreaming, as he is full of it. The Long Island Nassau & Suffolk systems are not the same as NY City, No Way, No How!!
MTA wants to run the transit buses, but wants no part of school operations.
That leaves the MTA with all of Suffolk Countys buses, and no place to store, service and repair them. The private SCHOOL BUS operators own most or all of their depots.
Does anyone know of any huge properties where MTA could build new depots?? IF they do happen to find space, it will cost the TAX Payers millions. Then there is the well known "NIMBY" factor which will prevent the MTA from building a two car garage.
Film at Eleven, like 3011!!

Suffolk Transportation is the parent company of Suffolk Bus Corp which runs bus routes for Suffolk County.

i think u mean Suffolk Transit.


the TWU-Local 252 only represents Suffolk Transportation (School buses) and Suffolk Bus Corp(Transit), no other companies that run Suffolk Transit routes are represented by them. i checked their website.

they do represent Long Island Bus, as well as Laidlaw/First Student (which ever one you want to call it), as well as another small School Bus Company.

S-60 & Railbus;
Thanks for the additional input re MTA's idea of taking over Suffolks Bus System. Again I agree with you 100%. It is Not going to happen!!
