The City Council’s Education and Finance Committees will hold a joint oversight hearing on the topic “The Cost of Pupil Transportation in NYC.”

We invite members of Community Education Councils, parents, students, educators, advocates, and all other stakeholders and interested members of the public to testify at this hearing.  Testimony will be limited to 2-3 minutes per person to allow as many as possible to testify.  Although the hearing starts at 10:00 am, the Administration (Department of Education), as well as other witnesses (such as elected officials) have been invited to testify and answer questions from Council Members at the outset, so we do not expect to hear from others until sometime after 12:00 pm.  Please make sure you fill out a witness slip on the desk of the Sergeant-at-arms if you wish to testify.  If you plan to bring written testimony, please bring at least 25 copies.

Please share this information with any interested groups or individuals. Thank you for your assistance and we look forward to seeing you on February 8th!  If you are unable to attend, but would like to submit written testimony, please email your testimony to jatwell@council.nyc.gov.
