We need smarter public transportation in Suffolk County in a way that is community-oriented and that meets many more needs.
As a region we give $30 billion more to Washington and Albany than we get back. We need to advocate for our fair share and put that money into transportation. Right now, our public transportation system meets very few residents’ needs. The buses don’t go to train stations or town halls, and our routes are based on old norms. We need to re-evaluate the system and make sure that people can get where they need to go and when they need to go.
Additionally, corridor improvements along Straight Path / Route 110 could have the potential to dramatically change transportation in the 15th Legislative District.
