This Week: Mourning Lost Transit as Commuters Wait for Cuomo

As the transit lockbox bill awaits the signature of Governor Cuomo -- by no means a sure thing -- tonight Transportation Alternatives will be holding a Vigil for Public Transit: "One year ago, New York City had two subway lines, 36 bus routes and 570 bus stops taken away. In Albany, our own state elected representatives stole funds dedicated for public transit and used them to patch up other holes in the budget. Please join us with artifacts of the transit you most miss, and signs to show what has been lost." Ditmars Blvd. and 31st St., Queens, 6:30 p.m.
