Cuts in BC Transit

For many disabled people, public transportation is a must. 

I have heard through the grapevine of pending cuts in BC Transit, the mass transit covering Broome County, New York.
-Sunday service will be cut out entirely shortly
-not immediately, but in the near future, all night service will be cut, with the final buses running at 6pm

Express buses will be cut on the #35 line, which is probably the longest line in the system.

Disabled people have few alternatives, except taxis, which are beyond the budget of many working poor.

If Bil was living up here, I would be concerned. And who knows, he may have to move up here one day.

I am aware that public mass transit is being cut in many areas. It's a vicious circle, and disabled people, and the working poor as usual, bear the brunt of cuts.
