Lack Of Bus Shelters


Saturday late afternoon, as the rain was starting, my husband and I stopped to give a ride down Searingtown Road to someone’s housekeeper going down to Northern Boulevard on her way to Great Neck, New York City and onto Brooklyn.
I asked if there were bus shelters at her corner. When she told me there were none and also very few along her bus route, we questioned why that was.
In front of one of the highest end shopping destinations, where all kinds of workers must come, there is no protection in inclement weather or blistering hot days for these workers.
Can’t our town or our county come up with methods to finance bus shelters for these workers without whom many businesses and homes would be bereft? Give incentives to businesses to finance these needed shelters. Let’s start to consider those we all need behind the scenes of our lives.
