Buses: What will the City do?

While the vast majority of buses come and go to the Port Authority, they are not the only ones to be a major health and safety hazard to our community. Untitled

It turns out that Chekpeds and CB4  have developed a repository of intelligence on buses  unique in the city since no single agency is responsible for all aspects of this fast developing mode of transportation. CB4 hosted a meeting of the Department of City Planning , DOT , PANYNJ, the Highline and Hudson Yards developers who recently discovered the problem of Buses in our neighborhood.

We really hope City Planning will take ownership of a problem that has sorely lacked strategic and tactical planning and has reached crisis proportions. Parking buses is indeed much more critical to our economy and more urgent than parking cars.
