Will Residents Party Or Mourn The Shutdown Of Roosevelt Island Tram - RIOC Operations Committee Meeting 2/17 On Transportation Options During Outage

Last Tram Jackson Hole from Jim Stanford on Vimeo.

What will Roosevelt Island be like on February 28, the last day that the current Roosevelt Island Tram is in operation before it's March 1 shutdown? Will Roosevelt Islanders party like they did in Jackson Hole or worry that the scheduled September 2010 resumption of service with a brand new dual haul tram will be delayed for much longer? We'll soon see.

In the meantime the RIOC Operations Committee is meeting tomorrow to discuss Roosevelt Island transportation issues relating to the Tram shutdown.
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a meeting of the Operations Advisory Committee of the RIOC Board of Directors will be held on Wednesday, February 17, 2010 at 4:30 p.m. at the RIOC administrative office, 591 Main Street, Roosevelt Island, New York. The Committee will meet to:
1- receive an update on the Aerial Tramway Modernization Project;

2-discuss transportation alternatives during the Aerial Tramway shutdown, including water ferry and bus service; and

3- discuss the extension of the contract with Parametrix Consulting Inc. for the Aerial Tramway Modernization Project.
The meeting will be available on line two days later. RIOC does not live webcast Committee meetings.

Yesterday the tram resumed running from Manhattan at 13.45 but there was no Red Bus to meet its arrival on R.Island. Communicate please.
