Is Your Bus Line on the chopping Block?
Lets be clear: The MTA has declared war on Black, Brown, Asain and working class bus riders.
MTA Track record: July 2007 - Fare increase. July 2009 - Another Fare Increase. December 2009 - 380,000 hours of bus service cuts.
June 2011: proposal to cut 11 lines and reduce weekend and night service on 16 others.
Since the consent decree ended in 2006, the MTA has been swinging it's battle axe at the BRU's hard won victories, recreating the very conditions we successfully fought against in our 1994 title VI lawsuit.
