January 4th (Nassau, NY) - The Nassau County Bus Transit Committee has scheduled two public hearings on January 10 regarding the anticipated effect of the MTA’s (Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s) fare increase on NICE (Nassau Inter-County Express) bus.

A presentation will be made by NICE on the anticipated effect of the MTA’s fare changes on the NICE bus system.  The Bus Transit Committee will then hear public comments after the presentation and before making its final determination.
