BILL NUMBER:A1470

TITLE  OF  BILL:    An  act  to  amend  the public authorities law, in
relation to requiring that notice be given  to  the  community  boards
when  there  is  a  change in service furnished upon the rapid transit
facilities or the omnibus line facilities of the New York city transit
authority

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:  To  give  community  boards  advance
notice  when service cuts are made in their districts. This hill would
give the affected community boards more time to  prepare  comments  in
response to the cuts and inform the community on their impact.

SUMMARY  OF  SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:  Section 1. Subdivision 4 of section
1205 of the public authorities law is amended to include the community
board as an entity the authority  is  required  to  give  thirty  days
written notice to when service cuts are scheduled for their district.

JUSTIFICATION:  Under current law, the New York city transit authority
is  not  required  to  give  community  boards  notice when there is a
substantial or general change in the levels of service provided by the
authority,

Reductions in transportation service can severely disrupt the lives of
commuters that rely on public transportation to get to school or their
place of employment. Community boards  serve  as  a  mediator  between
those  that  reside  within  their respective district and the various
levels of city government. It is crucial that the  affected  community
boards  are  given  time  to  respond  and prepare their districts for
potential cuts in service.
