My roommate is STILL home form work and I want the apartment to myself. Just kidding this is serious Greenpoint. We deserve temporary relief while the MTA is working to restore service to us.
This petition has been started by Councilwoman Tish James and Lincoln Restler:
“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”
