" Towner Route will connect with
Tappan Junior High instead of being
routed to Arborland through Pittsfield.
These revisions have been made to
routing alternatives proposed at the
board's July 16 meeting when the
"quarter mile plan" was suggested.
THE AATA STAFF has suggested a
timetable calling for the route changes
from the present system to be adopted
in three 11-week stages. If, for example,
the board approves a new route plan in
two weeks, the final phase in the plan
could be completed the week of April 8,
During last night's meeting, the
board heard public comments on the
advisability of shifting away from Dial-
A-Ride service toward line bus service.
Several representatives of local
senior citizens groups spoke in favor of
maintaining Dial-A-Ride service, at
least to meet the needs of the elderly
and handicapped. A group of 10 Miller
Manor residents addressed the board
and brought a petition signed by 80
senior citizens urging the board to con-
tinue, and upgrade Dial-A-Ride service
for the elderly and handicapped.
Miller Manor resident Roseann
Roseman said, "I'm very dependent on
Dial-A-Ride. I have no other transpor-
tation - I don't know what I'd do if they
took Dial-A-Ride away."
Several citizens suggested that im-
proved line bus service would be far
more convenient to AATA passengers
than the present Dial-A-Ride system.
They suggested eliminating cross-town
routing through the downtown area in
favor of increased bus runs down the
major thoroughfares. There were,
however, no objections to maintaining
handicapped and senior citizen Dial-A-
