The Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (Centro) will conduct a series of public hearings to allow public comment on service reductions implemented in September 2021 as the result of a bus driver shortage. The service reductions constituted major service changes on 12 Centro bus routes according to Centro’s Major Service Change policy and require a public hearing. The affected bus routes include:

Sy8 SYRculator  Sy10 S Salina St – Nedrow  SY20 James St – Sunnycrest Rd
SY30 Westcott St  SY36 Camillus – W. Genesee St  SY46 Liverpool – Route 57
SY48 Liverpool – Morgan Rd  SY58 Park Hill – James St  SY72 E Colvin St – Townsend St
SY82 Baldwinsville  SY88 N Syracuse - Cicero  SY323 Minoa

Centro will receive comments on the impact of the changes or suggested improvements on the above-mentioned routes as we work to hire additional drivers and restore services. Centro will also consider these comments as it begins the process of a system redesign which may include bus rapid transit, on-demand bus services, or bike/scooter share, in addition to or in lieu of fixed route bus services.

For formats (FREE of charge) in accordance with the ADA and Limited English Proficiency regulations, and patrons requiring further accommodations, contact (315) 442-3400. A sign language and Spanish language interpreter will be available at all hearings.

Individuals whose interests would be affected by the proposed changes being considered are hereby notified and invited to attend the hearings to present such evidence, comment, or object as their interests require.
