NICE BUS SHUTTLES

In 2011, NICE (Nassau Inter County Express) took over from MTA Long Island Bus. Philosophically, I USUALLY SUPPORT Private over Public. Unfortunately, I think NICE BUS has made TOO MANY Mistakes & I think MTA Long Island Bus should take over Nassau & Suffolk County Transit.

NICE Bus Operates 3 Shuttle Routes, 2 of them used to be Bus Routes, & 1 New Shuttle Route. I would like to address these 3 Routes in this Blog.

This Blog will deal with the Proposed Red Routes of the Queens Bus Redesign. The Purpose of the Red Routes is Moving rapidly across the County.
