Mangano got rid of the buses supposedly to save money, but at whose expense? The expense of the middle & lower class citizens who require this service to commute to & from work, as well as basic travel around the county! The Nice system revamped supposedly to make the system more efficient!!! But how is taking a 1 hour bus ride & making it a 2 hour ride more efficient! The buses are now worse than ever! Selling the buses was one of the worse decision mangano made during his term! This company knows nothing about Nassau or the needs of its citizens! There is absolutely no accountability at all!!!

I feel your pain!

Unfortunately everyone does not feel your pain, especially those that rely solely on their car(s). They are perfectly happy letting someone else suffer as long as their county taxes do not go up. But allowing their school taxes to go up is perfectly fine as long as their kid is in school. After that they just move away because it's just too expensive to live here. And the cycle begins all over again.

All I can say is, "Let your voice be heard in November!"

Also about to have a nice size price hike when it was not supposed to cost residents any more. AMH
