Affordable Public Transportation

Office_with_Men.pngJoining with local residents and community advocates, Vanessa was instrumental in getting the MTA to restore threatened cuts to the BX 18 bus line and protecting the Student No-Fare Program from the budget ax. Vanessa used her leadership in the state Assembly to be a vocal advocate for those who want to protect services for the disabled by supporting the Access-A-Ride program and introduced legislation to make the Student No-Fare Program permanent.

Vanessa worked with community residents and the New York City Transit Authority in extending the BX 13 bus from 161st Street and River Avenue to 149th Street at the Bronx Gateway Mall to accommodate residents who were limited in getting to the mall via public transportation.
