Joe Lhota, MTA Chair: Implement Shuttle Bus Service along L and G Routes

In the wake of an unprecedented natural disaster, we are greatly appreciative of the MTA's remarkable restoration of 84% of subway service. Yet we are extremely concerned about the lack of mass transit access for residents along the L and G subway lines. These trains are not redundant - but essential lifelines for hundreds of thousands of Brooklynites.

As we await the draining of these subway tunnels, we hope the MTA will swiftly expand bus service. We strongly suggest implementation of temporary shuttle bus service along the L and G routes to connect stranded residents to active subway lines.  

This petition has been started by Councilwoman Tish James and Lincoln Restler.
