Glen Cove, New York – Assemblymember Charles Lavine (D-North Shore) and Glen Cove City Councilwoman Danielle Fugazy Scagliola have sent a joint letter to Janno Lieber, Chair/CEO Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Catherine Rinaldi, Interim LIRR President, expressing their concerns about the impact of the recently completed East Side Access / Grand Central Madison projects on North Shore riders and urging increased service on the Oyster Bay Branch.
In their letter the two said, “The new schedules provided by the MTA show that the trips on the Oyster Bay line are actually getting longer in most cases and less trains are headed east bound during rush hour. Additionally, there is more time between trains. As taxpayers, Oyster Bay riders helped shoulder a part of the financial burden for the expansion, yet our service is getting worse.”
