The lack of adequate mass transit on Long Island’s East End has been long - recognized but has not received the attention it deserves.
The Tri-State Transportation Campaign is a non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to reducing car dependency in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Today we talk with Ryan Lynch, Associate Director of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign about the state of mass transportation on eastern Long Island and the metro area.
We learn that LIRR's plan for 'Scoot' shuttle trains on the east end from Speonk to Montauk and from Ronkonkoma to Greenport has been cancelled.
This is another in the monthly series about issues of land use, water and energy resources, transportation and the food industries on the twin forks of Long Island. It is heard on the 2nd Thursday each month on listener-powered WPKN Radio - 89.5 FM and streaming live at wpkn.org.
