PUBLIC HEARING ON BXM4C EXPRESS BUS FARE INCREASE TO BE HELD
The Westchester County Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing July 27 to receive comments about a proposed fare increase for riders of the Bee-Line's BxM4C express bus to Manhattan.
The July 27 hearing will be held at the Westchester County Center (Central Avenue and Tarrytown Road) in White Plains. There will be two sessions: 4-6 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.
The proposed fare increase will help reduce an anticipated $1.8 million deficit in the department's 2010 operating budget.
This proposed fare increase would affect the BxM4C route only.
The proposed fare schedule would raise the base one-way fare from $5.50 to $7.50, effective Sept. 7.
The proposed discounted fare for senior and disabled riders would go up from $2.75 to $3.75. Fares could be paid in coins or with MetroCard Pay-per-Ride cards.
The change would also eliminate "Express Bus Plus" unlimited ride MetroCards; free transfers to and from other Bee-Line routes and the New York City subway; and discounted transfers from other transit routes to the BxM4C.
Earlier this year, County Executive Robert P. Astorino announced a compromise plan that saved the BxM4C from elimination.
At that time, the county executive said that service would have to be reduced to reflect ridership demand and characteristics and fares would be increased to eliminate deficits.
WANT TO SAVE MONEY? WWW.KnowtoriousPIG.com posts substantial discounts on their website every day. Most of the discounts are 50%+ off the typical costs.
Want a free prescription drug card? Some residents have advised me that they have saved 40% or more off their prescriptions from this card. Also have cards for pets.
The cards are available at my office. No gimmicks, no registration. Just take a card. Cards are effective if you do not have insurance or if you are underinsured.
