Next QPTC meeting is Wednesday, August 20, 2014 from 7:30 to 9 PM

Dear Friends,

Our next Queens Public Transit Committee meeting is on Wednesday, August 20 from 7:30 to 9 PM at the:

Knights of Columbus
333 Beach 90th Street
Rockaway Beach, Queens. 
We hope you can make it as we'll discuss more than one topic.

The fight for the ferry from Lower Manhattan to the Rockaways continues. Important steps have been taken since last month's meeting. There will be a press conference on the steps of City Hall the night after our meeting. There are more actions to complete. It's critical that we come together, discuss the progress that has been made and coordinate our efforts going forward.
If you can, sign the petition on our social media too. 

Of course, there are other transportation concerns to address. We've recently joined the battle to extend the Q52 bus route to serve more Rockaway residents. New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli released a report describing the Rockaway Beach line as a good investment for the MTA. Momentum is shifting our way -- how can we capitalize, and where else should we focus our advocacy? Please join us Wednesday and help us make plans.

We've got work to do.

Mike Scala
Queens Public Transit Committee
