Provide safe public transportation to Rivertowns Square in Dobbs Ferry.
This petition had 180 supporters
The new Rivertowns Square Mall in Dobbs Ferry is not currently served directly by public transportation. This means that those who work there who do not have cars, as well as those who will be working there when the new hotel, food market and other stores open soon, in addition to those without cars who want to shop there, are forced to get off the existing bus line and walk to the mall down a street with inadequate pedestrian pathways and then cross the Saw Mill Parkway on foot.
This is an unsafe situation that is a tragedy waiting to happen. It could be remedied, however, if Westchester County slightly re-routed the existing bus line and have it run into Rivertowns Square.
So far, Westchester County has not committed to this common sense measure.
The management of Rivertowns Square say they favor this solution. So does the Town Supervisor of Greenburgh and the Greenburgh Human Rights Advisory Committee. The WESPAC Foundation also joins in calling for a solution to this potentially dangerous problem.
We believe people should not have to risk their lives to get to and from work or to shop at Rivertowns Square.
Please join us in calling on Westchester County to provide public transportation into Rivertowns Square and for the County to work with the Rivertowns Square developers in constructing an adequate sheltered bus stop.
