Re: MTA responds to Schumerís call to move Yonkers bus depot

No, in order to deadhead from Eastchester it takes about an hour with roads availible to buses. MCI's cant use the Hutch, or Cross County. Not because of permits, but to to height on both parkways. Add an hour deadhead for the runs out of Riverdale & Getty Square and you now have raised operating costs signficantly. Also it doesn't appear to be NIMBYism as it seems to be the $25 Million for a facility. Lohta didn't mention the fact the development is a "multi-billion dollar" project for nothing. In the MTA's eyes, why should the MTA foot the bill for relocation and building a new facility or refurbishment of replacement if the powers that be want to help along a multi-billion dollar enterprise. The letter "screams" put up the money or shut-up if not, talk to King Bloomberg about it. BTW Yonkers only gets service from the BxM3, The BxM1,2,4&18 end at the city line.
