(Long Island Business News) – A long-talked about plan to implement north-south transit across Long Island received new life today.
Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone unveiled his “Connect Long Island” plan today in Hauppauge. The plan would tie several transit-oriented development projects and downtowns together through the creation of north-south rapid-transit bus routes. The creation of north-south transportation is vital to grow the county’s economy, Bellone said.
“We can’t grow our economy by adding more cars to the roadways,” Bellone said. “Right now it’s impossible to move around Long Island without a car.”
