From the NY Post:
They're in the no man's land of MTA budget cuts.
But riders of the little-used Q79 bus route in Floral Park, Queens, and the S60 route in Grymes Hill, on Staten Island, said they'll suffer -- facing long treks or the addition of 30 minutes in transfer time -- if the MTA, as planned, eliminates their lines.
Student Nicholas Mancuso said he'd have to "take another bus the wrong way and take it all the way back around to get home" from school if the Q79 is cut.
MTA officials said they targeted the two routes because they have the lowest ridership levels in the system. The S60 carries 210 people per day, and the Q79 about 650.
The move would bring about $1.1 million in savings to a $400 million budget gap.
