Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

NYCTA and MTABC are not advertising public hearings but "workshops." Using workshops is a method that tends to divide the citizenry into one-on-one encounters, not allowing reactions to be shared in an open forum for all the hear, and perhaps most importantly, not creating a record upon which decisions can be rationally made and appeals taken. Notice that the website does not even provide an address to which written comments--which could review the deficiencies with the plan and provide a written record--is not provided. Oral comments, expressed to a representative at a workshop, are easily overlooked and ignored if not consistent with the propaganda being peddled. In sum, the workshop method epitomizes the underlying premise that the NYCTA and MTABC service planners know best, that the citizenry does not understand what is good for them, and it is simply a matter of having NYCTA and MTABC do a better job of explaining their brilliance.
