Transit Cut Maps
March 20th, 2009

The Regional Plan Association has some very detailed maps of planned MTA service cuts. The maps break the cuts down by legislative district. If your representative has been slow to act on the Ravitch Plan, you can see exactly what their stance will mean to your daily commute.

Neysa Pranger of the Regional Plan Association, says that her group has been bringing these handy maps with them to show legislators exactly how their constituents will be affected.

Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith’s district is facing the loss of three bus lines, and reduced subway service. Sen. Ruben Diaz’s district will lose three bus lines, face a number of altered bus routes, and longer intervals between trains. Constituents of Sen. Kevin Parker will lose M line service between Broad Street and Bay Parkway in Brooklyn and will have to deal with an increased wait for trains and signifigantly altered bus service.

Legislators have until Wednesday of next week to take action, otherwise the MTA is expected to enact major fare increases and service cuts.
