Instruction John Sheridan, Suffolk’s acting transportation commissioner, has a plan to create a coordinated bus system to fight the fact the County is widely regarded as having the worst mass transit in the New York metropolitan area. However, the “public transit” aspect of a County “comprehensive trans­ portation plan” that his department has developed didn’t get very far at a meeting last week of the transporta­ tion and commerce committee of the Suffolk Legislature. The new chairman of the panel, Conservative William Carney of Nes- conset, hit at governmental subsidies for public transit and warned of the potential that publicly-supported mass transit here could become a “spreading cancer.” East End Feeders The public transit system would include, according to the plan, eight “feeder areas” on the East End that would have connecting service to the main routes, either by mini-bus, “sub­ scription,” or “dial-a-ride\ service. The eight areas would be East Hampton, Bridgehampton, Noyac to Sag Harbor, Southampton, Hampton Bays, River- head, Southold, Mattituck, and Green- port. At the same time, two owners of bus companies in the County were on hand to complain about a recent legislative vote against a $195,000 subsidy for private bus operators. One, Jim Davidson of the Hampton Jitney, said “in light of the negative vote” his firm would “have to review its local service.” Its reservation-only service to New York was solvent, Mr. Davidson said, however. John Mensch of Seashore Transit said his company would be discontinuing its Brookhaven runs in coming weeks. Mr. Carney, accused by Mr. David­ son of having a “negative attitude” toward mass transit, told the bus operators: “I’m not going to walk into a Situation W a n ted LANDSCAPE GARDENER - com­ plete landscaping and maintenance.

My situation, is the bottom line.” “Tragedy” In an interview after the meeting last week, County Executive John V.N. Klein said he “fully supported the concept” of the plan by Mr. Sheridan, who had been transportation specialist under Dr. Lee Koppelman and his Nassau - Suffolk Regional Planning Board. But, said Mr. Klein, the County was “hard-pressed” in providing sub­ sidies. “It’s not that I think the County shouldn’t be subsidizing bus trans­ portation,” said Mr. Klein, a Repub­ lican. “But we don’t have the money. The tragedy is that we are forced to contribute $8 million a year in support for the Long Island Rail Road. And what are we getting for that? If we could do what we wanted to with that $8 million, it would be another story.” Karl Grossman “F” For Rt. 27 BUS ROUTES AND FEEDER lines are displayed by John Sheridan, acting County transportation commissioner.

He said he didn’t feel this was in conflict with his new role as head of a committee dealing with transportation. “Every committee chairman doesn’t agree with the demands of the people coming before his committee,” said Mr. Carney. “I can’t be for everything.” However, Mr. Sheridan in his pre­ sentation of a County transportation plan, stressed that in the United States it’s “very obvious that public transport can’t pay for itself.” That was particu­ larly true, he said, in Suffolk with its moderate population density. Still, said Mr. Sheridan, the analysis by his department found many people in the County who “we feel very earnestly require public transporta­ tion.” These include the elderly and handicapped, teenagers, the poor, and households with one or no automobile. County Expense He said the plan locates 26 areas in the County with high “concentrations of transit user characteristics,” and containing a total of 520,000 of Suffolk’s 1.3 million population. In addition to the “feeder lines,” rail points and commercial and employ­ ment centers would be hooked in, as well. He projected the first phase of the program bringing in $933,900 in fares, based on 50-cent fares, and $798,600 in Federal and State support. The re­ maining $917,500 of the $2.6 million would have to be made up by the County, he said. Depending on the success of this first phase, a second phase is planned, totalling $ 8.8 million in annual cost, with $3.9 million coming from reven­ ues, $ 1.1 million from Federal and State governments and $4.1 million from the County. Transfers This would bring bus service at one half to one hour intervals throughout the County, 16 hour-a-week service during weekdays, somewhat less on weekends, and a series of “transfer points” with “accessibility” to the main lines from the “feeder areas.” Mr. Sheridan said he thought in­ expensive and efficient bus service in Suffolk would draw large numbers of travelers from cars to buses and, meanwhile, “make mobile” sections of the population which can barely move around at all. He said the County would run the program and purchase the equipment, with large Federal reim­ bursement, contracting out actual operations to bus companies. The text of the plan Mr. Sheridan distributed said: “The estimated costs for the pro­ gram are comparatively low when Cards of T h anks I would like to thank all my friends and relatives for being so nice to me during my stay at the hospital.

Evelyn Carter considering expenditures for this pur­ pose in other areas of the region. There is no way that a public transportation system can be developed without the financial support of government. The plan, as detailed in this report, how­ ever, will provide a reasonable level of public transporation service to those who require it, while minimizing these costs.” Fiscal Prediction However, Mr. Carney declared that having “the New York City Transit Authority in Suffolk County would bring us to fiscal disaster.” He sug­ gested “higher fares” be discussed to put bus operations in the black. Supporting the plan and suggesting it be presented to the full Legislature was John Donohue, a Southampton Democrat who had preceded Mr. Carney as transportation and com­ merce chairman. Whether the current Legislature would be interested in the plan was put into question by its recent rejection — by a vote of 9 to 8 crossing party lines — of a $195,000 subsidy program for some of the current 15 private bus operators in Suffolk who run 33 poorly coordinated routes carrying two million passengers year­ ly- Citing the vote, Mr. Davidson, who called Mr. Sheridan’s plan “a good A bulky report by the State Depart­ ment of Transportation has confirmed what motorists traveling the Montauk Highway have long suspected: The traffic there is lousy. The study was one of several unveiled by DOT officials at last week’s meeting of the South Fork Transporta­ tion Task Force, an advisory group that has spent over two years ponder­ ing the area’s traffic problems. An­ other, much shorter report discusses specific “problem locations” on the Highway and recommends, among other things, that it be split into two two-lane stretches around Town Pond in East Hampton Village, putting eastbound traffic on James Lane. The big report, a bound volume stuffed with graphs and maps, rates the Highway’s “level of service” with a system of grades under which “A” signifies free-moving traffic and “F” means traffic jams. The Highway’s highest mark is a “C,” in which maneuverability is tight but “a rela­ tively satisfactory rate of speed is still obtained, with service volumes per­ haps suitable for urban design prac­ tice.” This is for the stretch between Amagansett and Montauk. Below Limit The rest of the way, from the Shinnecock Canal east, the Highway rates “E” and “F” — mostly “F” — in the summer and “D” off-season. “The data,” the report reveals, “indicates that the highway lacks adequate ca­ pacity to accommodate the traffic volumes during the summer season with forced flow being prevalent with congestion, delays and ‘stop and go’ traffic.” Another section of the report, based on a number of “test runs” made in July and plotted on graphs, discloses that the average speed on the Highway T ask F or ce Meets The South Fork Transportation Task Force met for the first time in four months last Thursday evening at the Southampton Middle School to “ascer­ tain its current status,” examine pre­ liminary work on two studies recently released by the State Department on Transportation, and to hear a report on projected Long Island Rail Road im­ provements. Initial work on a $12.8 million project to improve 44.2 miles of railbed between Speonk and Montauk is scheduled to begin “on a limited basis” and without the interruption of rail service this summer, Lee Hennig of the DOT said. The “major endeavor” would begin next fall, he said, adding that he hoped track improvements would be completed by the summer of 1979. Once the work is completed traveling speeds are expected be to able to be increased from 30 to 65 miles per hour. Mr. Hennig also said that an “upgraded communications system\ was being installed. But asked whether costs of this would be covered by the initial $ 12.8 million he said he did not know. He also said, in response to a question, that funds for grade crossing gates had not been included in the project. A Rehash The Task Force also rehashed an old question concerning either improving the Montauk Highway between South­ ampton and Amagansett or building a “bypass” of the highway. Other discussions concerned the work of the Task Force itself. Mary Ella Richard, a member from Amagan­ sett, asked what the DOT expected of the Task Force in the way of recom­ mendations on its studies. William P. McElroy and several others urged the DOT “who are professionals” to make the recommendations themselves. But David Randles of the DOT said he hoped the DOT and Task Force could continue to “work together” on the studies. The Task Force set April 27 as a tentative date for its next meeting, when it is expected some County Transportation reports will be ready and further work will be done on the State DOT studies. A review of the two DOT studies appears above.

ADS AND DISCLOSURE RULE The truth-in-lending law became effective July 1, 1969. It’s also known as the disclosure rule. It requires lenders to give customers a plain statement of the credit charges involved in any transaction. One area where it has helped to clear possible misunder­ standings is in real estate ads. Remember when ads used to read like this: “FOR SALE — 3-bedroom home in fine location, only $22,000 with $3,000 down.” Now, if the advertiser mentions the down payment, he must also mention the monthly payment and the interest rate. Tell all or tell nothing! You may advertise the selling price, or terms like “low down payment” or “easy terms.” But when it comes to the big three — down payment, interest rate or monthly payment — if you mention one you have to tell all three. The obvious reason is so buyers can’t be misled by an ad that offers $ 2,000 down payment — and then finding out that the monthly payments are extremely high. • • • If there is anything we can do to help you in the field of real estate, please phone or drop in at JACK DOUGLAS REALTY INC. We’re here to help! — which under ideal conditions, based on posted speed limits, would be 51 miles per hour — in fact ranges from 34 to 39. The report says the data in it “was requested by and is considered essen­ tial to the South Fork Transportation Task Force to develop alternatives to improve the transportation network to this recreational area.” Lights The little report, three pages long, which was based on information pre­ viously submitted by the Task Force, says that splitting Route 27 into “one-way pairs” on either side of Town Pond “would allow for the elimination of any capacity problem at the Woods Lane intersection and also allow for an efficient signalization of Dunemere Lane and Route 114. If this proposal is unacceptable, however, other alter­ nates could be considered including the widening of Route 27 at Woods Lane to allow for a free right turn lane, elimination of certain turning move­ ments by the installation of one-way designations and turning prohibitions at the intersection.” “Signalization,” which means traffic lights, is also contemplated at the Montauk Highway’s intersection with Windmill Lane in Amagansett and in the Water Mill business area. A third, medium-sized report that was also submitted by the DOT consists of the results, rendered as numerous graphs, of the “transit study” it and the Task Force conducted last August, when thousands of ques­ tionnaires were handed out to motor­ ists and bus and train passengers, asking them such things as where they were going, why they were going there, whence they came, how often they took the trip, and how old they were. The significance of their answers — 41 per cent of train riders, for instance, said they were going home — has yet to be made clear. The report, according to a covering note, “is submitted without an analysis and is intended for in­ formation only.” V.
