Merrick Road n19 bus will be eliminated

As of April 9, 2017, the n19 bus route on Merrick Road will be eliminated. I believe this service was first provided before 1950 by Utility Bus Lines, from Freeport to Patchogue.  I rode it several times through Seaford in July of 1960 or 1961. At that time, a zoned fare was in place, with the operator using a ticket dispenser after the rider stated his destination.
The loss of this service is a result of Supervisor Ed Magano's budget.
