Extend the N80/81 to LIU-CW Post/NYIT in Brookville

Recommended Posts

A statement and suggestion for Northern Blvd bus service in Eastern Nassau County to help the N20. As someone about 4-5 years ago attend a semster of Grad College at LIU-CW Post, the N20 had 1-hour headways or more all times except rush hours.

Yet many people particuarly students at both LIU-CW Post and NY Inst. of Technology in Brookville get many riders weekdays when classes were open.

Why is that coordior of Northern Blvd between Roslyn and Route 106/107 is so negelcted?

 

I noticed that the N48/49 are extended to the Industrial area in Woodbury(aka Cablevision's headquarters and other businesses)during weekdays to connect to he Hicksville LIRR and Hempstead Turnpike coordior to/from Hempstead.

 

So why can't a low usage bus line like the N80/81 be extended to Brookville and the CW Post/NYIT campuses? It makes perfect sense.

That way riders in that area weekdays from about 7am-9pm can have 30 minute or less going to Hicksville.

Weekend N80/81 would still only run betweeen Hicksville LIRR and Sunrise Mall.

 

I know this is a long shot due to the current fiscal crisis but you guys that know or used LI Bus especially the N20 between Northern Blvd between Roslyn and Route 106/107 is so negelcted?

 

If under normal circumstances do you agree extending the N80/81 would be a great idea? Or should those college hire a bus charter to take students/riders to & from Hicksville? Any reactions.

Or maybe extend the N50 also.

They definately need help up there, the N20's get packed between Hicksville and the colleges because they dont run often enough.

 

 

30-60 minute headways on Sundays is fine on that part of the N-20. Plus unlike other busy LI Bus coordiors like the N6 Hempstead Turnpike & N4 Merrick Rd there is no alternative LIRR on that part of the N22 between Hicksville and the colleges in Brookville.
