MTA Bus Cuts, Sorry Dustin Hoffman

Sorry iconic film couple, but the MTA is cutting your bus line. Please get out.

Today was the big day for MTA, which approved a bevy of service cuts in Brooklyn. I spoke with State Senator Marty Dilan about the authority's pending decision and he was worried. Updated: Here are his official comments:
“Keeping services in tact must remain a priority for the MTA during this process. While I am fully aware of the financial strain the State, City and authority faces, the MTA must weigh every option to maintain services, especially services as vital as the reduced fare for school children program.”
I agree with Mr. Walder: the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s budget approved earlier today is only the beginning of the process. I look forward to an open dialogue with the Chairman as the authority moves toward a spending plan that is in the best interest of all New Yorkers, this year and next."

Let's go to the wires:
