Suffolk County legislators get earful about smaller buses

Suffolk lawmakers got a first-hand look Monday, Nov. 27, 2017 at some of the challenges faced by disabled residents as they try to get around on the county's new fleet of smaller, more fuel-efficient buses. Disabled riders and advocates voiced some of their concerns at a meeting of the county legislature's Transportation and Public Works Committee at the Griffing Building in Riverhead, and then boarded one of the new buses with legislators as it was parked outside the county's Riverhead legislative building.
