Long Beach to Add Buses if LIRR Strikes

Buses will bring riders to Far Rockaway subway station if strike comes.

Extra buses will depart from Long Beach if Long Island Rail Road goes on strike next week.

In a message from City Council Vice President Fran Adelson, the City of Long Beach will offer addition buses if LIRR officials and unions cannot come to an agreement before a strike begins July 21.

Extra buses will be added to both the East End and West End loops at no additional charge. They will bring riders to the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue A Train subway station.

How great is this? The City Fathers and Mothers are helping to break a Union. It does not much better than this

That's their MO. They court union support in the run-up to Election Day, then they stab you in the back once they ascend to office.

What about the other people who NEED to get to work? Did it ever occur to you that some people cannot afford to stay home? It's great that the city is adding buses to the Mott A station!

Guess you'll remember that on Election Day? Cuomo Junior is doing just what Cuomo Sr. did -- force a long LIRR strike b y ignoring Presidential Board rulings.
