NYAR President James Bonner asserts that NYAR is a "good neighbor" that "...follows all applicable laws and regulations and will continue to do so." Why then on April 9, 2018, did the MTA write to Senator Joe Addabbo, Assemblyman Mike Miller, and Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan, saying that if allegations now being tried in a court of law and investigated (at the request of the LIRR Committee and MTA Office of the Inspector General) by the NYS Department of Labor and other agencies are "proven to be true" they "call into question the business integrity of NYAR and whether it should be permitted to continue providing rail freight services over LIRR's network." Tell it to the judge, Mr. Bonner.

After a couple of years of major citywide advocacy by one organization and several years of policy by another organization, Fair Fares becomes a reality. I'm so proud.

































What an interesting turn of events: Can we get some of the bus routes back after the 2010 MTA budget cuts? Time will always tell.







Let go app is full of criminals





In the era of Trump, that is not going to happen in our own lifetime.

Such everyday bureaucracy by this particular railroad and I'm not surprised there.







How about doing something for all the disaffected male youth who have a 'murderous rage' in their hearts by incorporating 'social emotional' learning classes in all 50 states in the union? How about teaching our young people to not ignore loners and to be kind to them? Why is the public discussion ignoring this 900 pound gorilla in the room???






NYAR must slow down and stop at this kind of grade crossing in order to trigger the island circuits that work the lights (and, at some grade crossings, like Rust Street, the gates). Then a flag man is supposed to be on the ground while the train goes through the crossing. That's the procedure because there are no automatic gates and lights that would come down, as there might be for passenger train service. When NYAR goes right through the crossing, these traffic safety devices don't work. Here's a letter from MTA-LIRR President Patrick Nowaskowski to Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan admitting that NYAR did not "activate" the lights, meaning NYAR didn't stop at the grade crossing as required. NYAR claimed there was a flag man out there. So NYAR's "New Team" appears to be running the same old unsafe operation. See the letter below.
