The subject of broken Roosevelt Island Manhattan Tram Station elevators came up during the Town Hall Meeting last night.

Roosevelt Island's NY State Senator Jose Serrano said that his office will look into the matter as did NY State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright.

During a later point in the Town Hall meeting, another resident reported that RIOC provides the Red Bus Shuttle to and from Manhattan when the Manhattan Tram Station elevators are out of service and added:
...RIOC is really trying.

No other place that we know of would give us that service....
