The Sound Beach Civic Association is working with Legislator Sarah Anker's office to get better bus service through Sound Beach and we need input from bus riders about what needs to be done to accomplish this.
We are concentrating on better coordination between the 5A, which runs several times a day through Sound Beach, and connecting lines in Port Jefferson. In addition we are asking for the 5A to go through earlier westbound in the morning and later eastbound at night.
Bus service through our hamlet dates from when Sound Beach was a summer community. This is no longer the case. We are now a middle-class working community and we need better bus service.
So we need more bus riders to weigh in. Please send your comments to the Sound Beach Civic Association, PO Box 295, Sound Beach, NY 11789. We are putting all comments together and submitting them to Legislator Anker. The more letters we get, the more likely they will pay attention to us.
