Sound Beach, NY - January 6th, 2014 - Today, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker was joined by County Executive Steve Bellone, Sound Beach Civic Association President Bea Ruberto and Suffolk County officials to announce the addition of two new bus routes for the residents of Sound Beach.  

“I’m delighted that the new routes will provide residents with improved options for bus service,” said Legislator Anker.  “Due to increased population on the east end of Long Island, the need for bus service has also increased.  The two additional lines will provide better transit needs for our community members.”

“I thank Legislator Anker for advocating for this expansion of service and applaud the Suffolk County Department of Public Works for bringing additional services to the residents of Mt. Sinai, Miller Place, Sound Beach, Rocky Point, Ridge, and Middle Island areas,” stated County Executive Bellone.  “Viable public transportation is integral to a more connected Suffolk County, and I am proud to partner with Legislator Anker to expand service in the Sound Beach community.”

After hearing the concerns of residents who rely on public transportation to travel to jobs and shopping areas, Legislator Anker worked closely with county officials and the Sound Beach Civic Association to add weekday service to the 5A early morning and late afternoon routes. Additionally, the new schedule will provide better connectivity and transfers to other bus routes.

“I am so happy to hear that new 5A runs will go through Sound Beach,” said Civic President Bea Ruberto.  “This additional service will allow residents to get to the mall and the train station during peak hours. This could not have happened without the support of Legislator Anker, County Executive Bellone and the Suffolk County Transit Department.”
