Buses should honor LIRR tix in a storm

We all know that the Jan. 25 commute was tough with limited Long Island Rail Road service [“LIRR woes today,” News, Jan. 25].

Living in Cedarhurst, I took the N32 bus to Far Rockaway to the A train. I asked the bus driver if he honored LIRR tickets, and he said no, so I paid $2.75. Luckily I had quarters.

My friends took various buses — N1 and N4 in Valley Stream — and the drivers with no hesitation honored their tickets. That’s the right thing to do.

I realize the Jan. 23 storm was big and brought a lot of snow [“Buried,” News, Jan. 24]. But is it too much to ask, for safety, to take 10 or 20 minutes to clear fire hydrants of snow?

It’s bad enough when the county and towns don’t do it. We citizens should.
