CMs James and Barron Against B25 MTA Service Cuts, 2/28, 10AM

We’ve posted in the past concerning the MTA’s service cuts, specifically the crucial B25 bus line that previously traveled down Fulton Avenue towards Downtown Brooklyn.

In the past, we’ve stated:

"the MTA maintain(s) that the B25 is underused and already serviced by the A and C trains. Riders are expressing the exact opposite opinion; they say the B25 and B65 bus routes are vital life lines for Brooklyn residents, and that both buses often filled to capacity.

Taking the bus is simply a better option for the elderly and the handicapped because of the lack of elevators at most MTA subway stops."

In our efforts to continue to fight against unnecessary service cuts, the Brooklyn East New York Crisis Team & East New York United Concern Citizens

In conjunction with Council Member Charles Barron & Council Member Letitia James
