Legislators Cornell & Low-Hogan: Commuter Concerns Prompt Special Meeting On Quality of Service
7 P.M. Thursday, Sept. 20
New City, NY (Sept. 17, 2018) – Numerous concerns by commuters have prompted a meeting of the Rockland County Legislature’s Special Committee on Transit, set for 7 p.m. Thursday in the Legislature’s Chambers, 11 New Hempstead Road in New City.
The public meeting, to be led by Committee Chair Legislator Harriet Cornell, will include input from county and state transportation officials. It will focus on the current status of bus service and the impending change to a new service provider, Committee member Legislator Nancy Low-Hogan said.
Several riders of the TZ Express have expressed significant concern about the quality of bus service from Tarrytown to South Nyack and Nyack, especially recently, Legislator Low-Hogan said.
The county-run TZExpress service, which ferries bus commuters between Rockland and Westchester Counties, is being replaced by the state-run Hudson Link service as of Oct. 29. The current service provider is Brega Transport. The new provider of the new state-run service is TransDev.
Daniel Coots, Region 8 Planning and Mobility Manager for the New York State Department of Transportation, has confirmed his attendance. He has also confirmed that representatives of TransDev will attend.
