Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Common Council Member for Roosevelt Landing Romano Reid (also Chairperson of the Roosevelt Landings Service Committee) organized a meeting this morning with MTA Bus Company Transportation Planners and Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Transportation Manager Cy Opperman. During this meeting, Mr. Reid persuaded the MTA planners to add a Q 102 Bus Stop at 502 Main Street by the Youth Center.

The new Q102 Bus Stop should be operating in approximately 6-8 weeks.
Another issue addressed during the meeting with the MTA Transportation Planners was the Q102 Bus not always stopping at 40 River Road

The reason some bus drivers are not stopping at 40 River Road is because the bus sign had been removed and not replaced. Mr. Reid and I were told at today's meeting that the 40 River Road Bus Sign will be replaced and the Q102 will soon be making regular stops by 40 River Road.
Also discussed was adding Roosevelt Island bus service to Astoria (Q104) and Long Island City (Q103). The MTA Planners said they would review the feasability for such service.
Good job by Mr. Reid, Mr. Opperman and the MTA Transportation Planners.
