Bus be gone!
An abandoned bus has been left to rot on a residential street in College Point. The door is wide open, the plates hanging off, and it's right next to the hockey rink in College Point on 129 Street & 25 Ave where kids play.
So far the Mayor's office, the owner of the bus, the 109th Precinct Community Affairs, and 311 have all been notified but nothing has been done. Tonight Councilman Dan Halloran was also informed.
The bus has a bunch of violations on the windshield, but as of 9:30 tonight it's still there...
Can you help with a post to draw some attention, cut the red tape and shame some people to get this disaster waiting to happen off the streets?
I passed it onto an elected official. Here was the response.
We have been in contact with the 109th Precinct and the bus company. The 109th just called to tell me that they are at the location right now and were ready to tow the bus themselves, however the owner of the bus showed up and advised them that the bus broke down and they will have it towed.

If the bus isn't moved by Monday, let me know. - QC
