Bronx residents relieved Bee-Line bus strike is over

Many Bronx residents are relieved Bee-Line buses are back on the roads after a seven-week strike.

Nearly 9,000 Bronx commuters were affected daily by the strike. Due to the length of the strike riders will get to ride Bee-Line buses for free until May 31. Many Bronx residents who work in Westchester were hit hardest by the strike, because they had to find alternate transportation everyday.

Bronx residents should keep their March 2005 bus passports because they can be used in June. Riders who bought Unitickets and Supersavers can contact Metro-North to receive partial reimbursement.
