New Date, Location Set for Informational Meeting on Proposed HART Route and Schedule Changes

An informational meeting on proposed route and schedule changes for Huntington Area Rapid Transit (HART) that was cancelled in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy will now be held on Saturday, November 17 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Northport Public Library, 151 Laurel Ave., Northport.

The changes, the first significant route and schedule changes since the Town-operated bus system began operations in 1978, would take effect in January. Under the plan, the existing three routes would be replaced with four new routes, adding 20.5 miles to the system. Buses will run more frequently than under current schedules. The changes will offer better direct service with less need to transfer between buses to complete trips. The new routes maintain service to all major facilities. However, two weekday peak-rail feeder routes that have lost most of their ridership are being eliminated.

The new routes can also be viewed on the town’s website at http://huntingtonny.gov/hart_bus.cfm.

The November 17 session replaces one that had been scheduled for November 3 at the East Northport Public Library and is the second of two such meetings. The first was held in Huntington October 27. HART will be running more frequent service on November 17 to make it more convenient for residents to attend.
