Sort of ironic that my earlier Open Letter to you from WestView News was to plead for more bus shelters for riders waiting for the 14A—and now we’ve learned there’s a plan to do away with our vital little spur altogether—to replace it, apparently, with one that runs way out on the fringe of the territory it needs to serve.
A further irony—only last month (May) the Times had a long piece about the rising proportion of seniors in the population, just as the MTA wants to cut back its vital bus service to that very group—in a neighborhood that is a particularly noticeable example!
I guess they’re not aware that once we reach these so-called ‘twilight years’, most of us are really not up for walking to, or dealing with, the subways. And, probably cannot afford to take taxis, particularly with the recently added surtax!
Anyway, Corey, please forgive me for bending your ear again. Thank you for all you do and, in advance, for coming to the rescue of our vital 14A!
On behalf of my fellow West Village Seniors,
