Just a few minutes ago, MTA New York City Transit sent out word that tomorrow evening they will be teaming with the New York City Department of Transportation for a public meeting to discuss the Hylan Boulevard S79 SBS project. Here are the details via the press release I received:
MTA New York City Transit and the New York City Department of Transportation invite the public to a meeting on Thursday, September 15 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Renaissance conference center in the Grant City section of Staten Island.
The meeting will give residents on opportunity to learn about the Hylan Boulevard S79 SBS project, its operation and proposed bus stop locations. Participants will be able to view a draft plan for the corridor and talk with project team members. Attendees are encouraged to tell us about their concerns and issues regarding transit service, traffic conditions, pedestrian safety and curb use on Hylan Boulevard.
There will be a formal presentation beginning at 7:15 p.m. at the Regency Room of The Renaissance at 2131 Hylan Boulevard (at Bedford Avenue) in Staten Island. Visit the NYC DOT website at www.nyc.gov/brt for updated project information
Hopefully Staten Island readers of Transit Blogger can make it out for the meeting. If anyone does, please let me know how it goes.
