Have a NICE day! January 1, 2012

Posted by Mike C. in Personal, Travel.

As I noted last week, today is the day Nassau County says goodbye to MTA Long Island Bus and hello to NICE Bus.  More info on NICE (Nassau Inter-County Express) can be found at their News and Events page:

Your Bus Service is Becoming NICE

Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE) is the new name of the bus system in Nassau County. The system will no longer be called LI Bus. The new name commemorates the transition from the bus service being part of the regional MTA to being managed by Nassau County and its operating partner Veolia Transportation. Nassau County and Veolia Transportation are committed to providing a well-managed, high-quality bus service available to citizens.

Use Your MetroCard on NICE Bus!

We are delighted to announce that starting January 1st, 2012 and going foward, NICE Bus will continue to accept MetroCard ®. It will function in the same way it always has.

NICE buses accept coins and all types of MetroCard ®, the fare card issued by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

You can learn more about the MetroCard ® at the MTA website, http://www.mta.info/metrocard/, including the Reduced-Fare program for qualified riders, fare discounts available and where to buy MetroCard ®.

For information and fares about the Long Island Rail Road, visit http://www.mta.info/lirr/about/TicketInfo/. …

The routes and schedules haven’t changed much, if at all.  So, have a NICE day and many more days to come.
