Ronkonkoma, NY - December 23, 2013 - Today, County Executive Bellone was joined by John Corrado, Tom Mcateer and Ray Grimaldi of Suffolk Transportation Service, Joe Delgado of Suffolk Independent Living Organization and Department of Public Works officials to announce the commencement of Sunday bus service on eight bus routes in Suffolk County beginning January 5, 2014.
 
“Providing additional transportation opportunities for Suffolk County will give residents who are in need of transportation on Sundays the opportunity to shop, attend church services, and get to work without having to rely on family or friends or just not having the opportunity to travel on Sundays,” said County Executive Bellone. “I would like thank Legislator Schneiderman for sponsoring this legislation and supporting transportation initiatives in the County as well the Welfare to Work Commission.  We started with the East End, providing Sunday bus service on two routes and now we are rolling out service to eight additional bus routes.” 
 
The expanded Sunday service will also be available for the Suffolk County Accessible Transportation para-transit riders. 
 
“We must do everything we can to improve our transit infrastructure and provide options for our residents to travel throughout Suffolk County, said County Executive Bellone.  “Investments in our infrastructure serve as economic development initiatives which will help to grow our economy and provide for a sustainable economic future.”
 
“This expansion of service is the single largest increase in service in the history of Suffolk County Transit,” said John Corrado, President of Suffolk Transportation Services. “I am pleased to be a partner with Suffolk County and continue to look forward to opportunities where we can provide our riders with enhanced services and improved communications.
 
In addition to the expansion of Sunday bus service, Suffolk Bus is also providing written communications to the sight impaired by using braille  communications and for those who are hearing impaired Suffolk Bus offers audio communication of materials disseminated. 
 
“The Suffolk Independent Living Organization thanks County Executive Bellone, Legislator Schneiderman and the Suffolk County legislature for brining Sunday bus service to Suffolk County,” said Joe Delgado, Executive Director of Suffolk Independent Living Organization.  “Sunday service will also help people with disabilities live independently and enjoy the opportunities our communities have to offer.”

·         S1-Amityville to Huntington
 
·         S33-Amityville to Hauppauge
