Bronxites rally against scheduled bus line cuts

Bronx residents joined riders and transit workers Thursday night to rally against proposed service cuts.

The protest was held at the Bartow Community Center, where dozens gathered to voice their anger against several bus lines being cut, including the Bx25 and Bx14, the two lines that are scheduled for complete elimination.

Straphangers fear that these cuts will make it difficult for people to get around, especially the elderly and those with young children.

The cuts are part of the plan to help fill the MTA?s multimillion-dollar deficit.
