Bus Lines are being CUT all over downtown Manhattan, enough is enough ! Sign this petition please:

CCRC received this petition recently from Rob Hollander of savethelowereastside. Like Chinatown the lower east side in being threatened with the loss of bus service.
We stand by Rob and his colleagues in putting a stop to any MTA decisions that involve the loss of bus services in lower Manhattan and will be lobbying to keep our own M15 bus line coming to Chinatown.

Please sign this petition:

Friends and neighbors,

The M8 serves seniors and the mobility challenged as well as our neighborhood's public housing far to the east of any other public transport and dozens of downtown schools.

From Quinn Raymond of COBATA (Coalition of Block and Tenant Associations)

Things you and your group can do to save the M8:

1) Sign our petition at

2) Reach out to our elected representatives and tell them you are concerned and would like to be in the loop. They have been very responsive thus far.

3) E-mail the MTA directly:

Please forward this to your list-- we need to demonstrate how important the M8 is to our community.
