Union Gains Rear Door Boarding for Westchester Buses

MARCH 23 -- At the urging of TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano, Westchester County has adopted rear door boarding for Liberty Lines, and other Westchester County line service buses. Utano joined a press conference with County Executive George Latimer and State Sen. Shelley Mayer in White Plains today to announce the change in protocol. Utano thanked Sen. Mayer and Latimer for their quick response. He said the union wants its members and the public to ride in as safe an environment as possible. Rear door boarding began in New York City Transit today, also at the union's urging.
