Hey Brooklyn!

Our borough now faces critical cuts in service that will negatively affect the commutes of thousands of Brooklynites each day. Please click here to sign our petition and oppose these cuts!

Also, please attend the MTA’s public hearing in Brooklyn next month and let your voice be heard. Details are below:

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
6 p.m.
Brooklyn Museum
Cantor Auditorium
200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn

Among the proposed cuts to your borough are:

Elimination of Student MetroCards
$40 million in cuts to Access-a-Ride
Buses to be eliminated: B23, B37, B39, B51, B71, B75, B77, X29, X37 and the X38
Weekend elimination of the B2, B24, B69, X27 and X28
The following trains face reduced service, which will result in longer waits and more crowded subway cars: D, F, G, A, L and M trains. The M will be replaced by the V train.

Take Action!

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Help us collect signatures for our petition, which we plan to deliver to each of the MTA’s public hearings. You can find our petition online by clicking here.

Urge the MTA to find alternative ways to prevent these terrible cuts. To contact the MTA by phone, dial (212) 878-7483. To contact them by e-mail, click here.

The New York City Council and the Straphangers Campaign have proposed an alternate budget solution that will allow us to avoid these painful service cuts. To read more about our plan click here.

With your help we can stop these drastic cuts and ensure greater input from Brooklyn residents in the MTA’s budget process.
