On Tuesday, November 15th, the LIRRCC manned a table in Penn Station near the main departure board to meet and greet riders. From 4pm – 7pm members of the Council discussed issues with a large number of commuters who stopped by to express their opinions, sign up for the email list and pick up information about the Council. There were lots of angry people expressing unhappiness about lack of communications, cleanliness of the trains, and lack of value for the ticket price. On the other hand, a few riders said that they had no issues and that they were happy with the service. Overall, this was an extremely successful event and the Council will be following up on the information that was received.
Council members that participated were : Mark Epstein, Chair; Matt Kessler,
