Buses Legislation in Albany:
Tomorrow can be the beginning of a new era for all of us who live in bus saturated areas. The bills authorizing NYC DOT to grant permits for long distance bus stops and veto all other locations, come to a full floor vote and need to be signed by Governor Cuomo. Please get to your phones and call both : Sheldon Silver at 518 455-3791 and Governor Cuomo at 518 474-8390 ….
It is in your hands, we can do it!
