map-1MTA _ M12 Hearing
Wednesday, May 14, 2014, 5:30 p.m.
347 Madison Avenue, Board Room, 5th Floor

Finally good news on the transit front: MTA is gearing up to operate a much needed new route on the Far west side:  The M12 would operate 7 days a week every 30 minutes between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm. This service is planned to begin operating in September 2014.

However will the M12 be reliable or will the Lincoln tunnel traffic on 11th Avneue create unpredictable delays and make the bus as useless as the M11? Sspeak up and ask for 11th Avenue to be converted to one way , from 45th to 57th Street as the Community Board asked the DOT to do. 

The hearing will begin at 5:30 p.m., with registration to speak remaining open until 7:30 p.m. All registered speakers will be heard. Each speaker is permitted up to three minutes to testify. Written comments will be accepted online until 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14, 2014.

For more information about the proposed service changes, or to pre-register to speak at the hearing, call or write to MTA NYC Transit Government Affairs, 2 Broadway, 17th Floor, New York, NY 10004, 646-252-2660. You may also pre-register online to speak.

Please put the M12 into service as soon as possible! I am a resident of 45 Street and 10th Avenue and many of my neighbors agree with me that we desperately need this transportation option. Please note that very few vehicles ever travel northbound on 11th Avenue from 45th Street to 57th Street. Tunnel traffic gets backed up on the only southbound lanes during evening rush hour. It makes no sense to retain these unused northbound lanes for a small portion of the avenue.
