This is how NFTA-Metro informs riders that a FOURTH round of transit cuts is approaching in less than 10 days. Someone at NFTA must think bus riders don't have the time or savviness to commit to an hour-long fact finding mission, scanning between old and new PDFs, identifying what is changing and what is staying the same.
Here is what we see: NFTA is eliminating almost all remaining 15-minute trip frequencies--lengthening them to 20-minute waits. This affects #20 Elmwood, #23 Fillmore-Hertel, #3 Grant, #5 Niagara-Kenmore, #12 Utica and even the #19 Bailey--despite talking about the prospect of increasing transit service in a meeting in late January.
Furthermore, #15 Seneca is taking a big cut. On weekdays beginning March 8th, almost half of all buses will stop 3 miles short of Southgate Plaza. So if you miss your bus at the Southgate, you may need to wait an hour for the next bus instead of 30 minutes.
Some of our members are messaging local lawmakers now, objecting to these cuts, and asking for restoration of cuts in 2020. If you want to be apart of the conversation, join our Facebook Group, BTRU-ly Heard in the link below.
