NEW YORK (WABC) — A total of nine migrant buses arrived on Monday, the most in a day since southern states began sending them to New York and surrounding areas.

At least 9,500 migrants are currently in the city’s accommodation system and the city has already opened 23 emergency shelters.

Mayor Eric Adams is calling for better coordination from southern state governors who continue to send people across the country to other states without warning or communication.

“We’re not telling anyone that New York can accommodate all of the migrants in one city,” Adams said. “We’re saying as a sanctuary city, right to shelter, we’re going to fulfill our obligation. And when we contacted Governor Abbott and said, can we coordinate? They refused to do that.”

A woman spoke to Eyewitness News as she got off a bus from El Paso at the Port Authority bus station, describing her journey as difficult and dangerous.

She traveled to El Paso and became one of more than 1,000 migrants there to be bussed to New York, although she said adult children were still in Texas.

El Paso now rents its own charter buses for these trips, and as someone who worked in El Paso, Eyewitness News reporter Janice Yu said she’s been covering immigration for years. But what is happening now is something she has never seen before.

Adams said the city’s shelter system was at breaking point, with at least 13,000 migrants arriving since the summer.

El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser said that in the past, the majority of migrants who came to the United States had a sponsor — a family member or friend already in the United States who could help with things like transportation.

But that’s not the case right now, so he said El Paso was sending asylum seekers to cities they wanted to go — and many of them said New York.

Adams says New York will continue to be a sanctuary city, but he wants migrants to come voluntarily and in a humane way.

“We want to continue what we have always done, and that ensures that people who have come to this city have been treated humanely,” Adams said. “We don’t see that now. This humanitarian crisis was created by human hands, and I believe it was a political ploy.”

New York Governor Kathy Hochul said she has a call with the White House on Wednesday and will discuss ways to get asylum seekers into the job market more quickly so they can begin to establish a solid foundation for their families.

“I have already spoken to Secretary Mayorkas several times about our common interests in getting federal help for this crisis, to help all of us,” Hochul said. “But also to address the work issue and the time frame in which people may be able to have legal capacity to work at that time, while they wait for a court decision on their case.”

Adams also expressed the need for federal assistance to help asylum seekers find housing and jobs.

THE last batch of 100 buses ordered by the Public Transport Service Corporation (PTSC) nearly a decade ago arrived at TT on Saturday.

The five red, white and black buses arrived last week and will be processed over the weekend.

Speaking to Sunday Newsday, PTSC Chairman Edwin Gooding said: “I’m glad we have five more buses. We’re running out of buses now, so the fact that we’re getting five new buses is a good thing. We mainly place them in rural areas where people seek our services. »

Asked to clarify the shortage of buses, with 100 purchased in 10 years, he briefly said, “We are always short of buses”, and that information about problems surrounding the company’s fleet has already been released in audience.

He added, “The major transformation of the PTSC will now begin. These buses are the last five of 100 that started coming back somewhere in 2014, so the real story that we more or less promoted is the import of another 300 buses. This is the next step.

He said most of the buses in the new fleet of 300 will be electric buses.

But does TT have the infrastructure to support these electric buses? Gooding said, “No, we don’t have one yet. We are now setting this up. »

He can’t say how long it will take.

“It’s just that we started the process. The main thing is to get finance and that has not been arranged yet.

“The main thing with these 300 buses is really our objective to go green, thanks to electric buses. The majority will be electric, others will be CNG and a few will be diesel for certain areas. It’s the next big thing with PTSC, including a new terminal, new routes, and it’s a plan that will take three to five years.

The PTSC has in recent years set up CNG stations at its main hub in City Gate, Port of Spain.

Texas has ramped up its migrant buses to New York since the start of the month – with up to eight buses in a single day unloaded in Manhattan, volunteers said Friday.

“Before, it was one or two a day, three days a week. Now it’s six or seven days and almost every day, sometimes even at night,’ a TLC NYC aid worker working at the Port Authority Bus Terminal told The Post.

At least seven buses full of asylum seekers arrived at the Manhattan bus depot on Friday – and “a few days ago” there were eight buses in a single day, Mayor Eric Adams said Thursday.

It’s unclear where all of Friday’s buses in Texas came from, but at least three of them came from El Paso, a border town near Ciudad Juarez in Mexico.

El Paso is one of the cities in Texas that has been inundated with migrants who illegally enter the United States and then seek asylum, allowing them to stay here legally until their cases are brought to court.

At least seven buses carrying migrants arrived at Port Authority on Friday.

El Paso officials and GOP Texas Governor Greg Abbott are transporting thousands of migrants to Democratic cities such as New York to protest what they call Democratic President Joe Biden’s disastrously lax border policies.

A representative from Abbott’s office could not confirm the number of buses entering the Big Apple each day, but said he had sent more than 2,500 migrants on 45 buses here so far – and others are expected.

Just after noon Friday, about two dozen migrant families, including couples and children, who entered the Port Authority were loaded onto a waiting MTA bus bound for an unknown destination.

The migrants were herded into barricades and city workers on site did not allow reporters to speak to them.

The local union president says more safety is still needed for workers and passengers.

Content of the article

The city is about to complete the installation of protective barriers for Saskatoon bus drivers.

Content of the article

“This couldn’t have happened sooner,” said Darcy Pederson, president of Local 615 of the Amalgamated Transit Union, which represents the city’s transit workers.

Content of the article

The council has approved a phased program in 2020 to install crash barriers fitted with safety glass on all city buses, after years of union advocacy over assaults on drivers. At that time, the cost of equipping the entire fleet was estimated at around $2.9 million. Drivers have also previously had vinyl shields installed in response to COVID-19, suggesting they had limited protective value and could obstruct sightlines.

“It’s a gratifying feeling,” Pederson said of the fact that the last of the city’s buses will finally be equipped with driver safety doors. “It makes me feel good that our members are there, that they are safe, that they are protected and that the city council is watching over them.”

Content of the article

The first phase of installations on 47 buses is almost complete. A request for quotation due to close at the end of the month is looking for a company to purchase and install barriers on the city’s remaining 79 buses.

A city spokeswoman said she could not provide details, such as an updated cost estimate, while the bidding remains open.

Pederson suggested the barriers will likely be removable from older buses and reinstalled in new ones as they go into service, particularly if the city sticks with its current vehicle suppliers. The city was unable to confirm whether this will be the case, again citing the open bidding process.

While the completion of the barrier project will conclude a safety priority for the ATU, Pederson repeated a call for some sort of additional security presence for Transit. He said this was necessary to supplement the de-escalation training provided to drivers to deal with unruly passengers or other potentially dangerous situations.

“I don’t want to call it ‘police’. But “tariff application” or “security”? I don’t know what it would be called. Just someone there to patrol the buses, the downtown terminal and the surrounding area; it gets quite dangerous,” he said.

District 3 Com. Earlier this year, David Kirton said he felt bus drivers were not getting enough support because they too often found themselves bearing the brunt of the homelessness, mental health and addiction crises that have exploded during the COVID-19 pandemic.

He ended up withdrawing a July motion for the city government to explore a transit safety program for Saskatoon. At the time, several council members said they were not comfortable discussing safety options without first seeing a more thorough assessment of the issue of bus driver safety and passengers.

Council is expected to revisit the issue at some point in the coming months, when city staff present a report with data on safety incidents on buses and at Saskatoon Transit facilities.

Reminiscing about Shanghai’s old days has always been popular with locals, even in a city that opened its port no more than two centuries ago.

Nostalgic vibes are all over the city; from well-preserved colonial architectures to baroque-style decorations, from popular western restaurants to vintage cafes.

Television series adapted from literary works about Shanghai from the beginning of the last century are predominant, while the classic song “Night Time in Shanghai” by famous local singer Zhou Xuan (Chow Hsuan) in the 1940s is often played in television programs. local radio stations.

In a final nostalgic rush, some vintage buses in downtown Shanghai were packed away during the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday in a retrospective reviewing the city’s glorious century-old development of public transport.

The 22 electric buses on Route No. 20, which connects Zhongshan Park to the Bund, feature Art Deco-style blue and white surfacing resembling Shanghai’s earliest tram buses dating from 1908 to the late Qing Dynasty (1644- 1911).

“Almost all passengers take photos throughout their trip, as if they came for the bus rather than a ride,” said a bus driver named Yang, who was part of the first group of drivers. vintage buses, which have been unveiled. Saturday.

Ti Gong

The 22 vintage buses on Route No. 20 run between Zhongshan Park and the Bund.

Inside the buses, LED bulbs create an ambience of both Shanghai’s thriving nightlife and the city’s technological flavor. Some conductors, dressed as early 1930s newspaper delivery men in canvas jackets and hats, serve passengers at the terminal.

As a highlight, two standing wire poles to connect buses to overhead wires, once a common scene on local streets, have been retained, more like a nostalgic ornament.

These new energy buses are in fact mainly powered by long-lasting batteries. Other high-tech gadgets such as a brake warning system, high-definition panoramic cameras and a driver monitoring system have been installed to ensure safety. The buses are also wheelchair friendly with many barrier-free designs and facilities.

The city’s road transport bureau launched an online poll of four old-style Shanghai bus exterior paints or coatings, and most netizens chose the current one, an official with the bureau said.

He said the vintage coating on the No. 20 bus is a “bold attempt” to highlight the deep humanitarian and cultural characteristics of Shanghai’s public transport system, while improving services for passengers and bus drivers. .

Vintage buses take you back to a century ago

A #20 bus conductor, dressed as a traditional newspaper boy, serves passengers at a bus stop.

“Buses are important carriers of a city’s culture,” said Ye Luxin, deputy general manager of Bashi No. 1 Company, the operator of Route No. 20.

“Road No. 20, for example, passes local landmarks such as Jing’an Temple, Nanjing Road and the Bund, which carry a wealth of memories for generations of locals.”

The route originated from the city’s first tram line, opened by the British Electric Traction Co. in March 1908 to meet the growing demand for travel as part of the city’s rapid expansion which could no longer be met by rickshaws and wagons.

The 6 kilometer long tram line operated between the temple and the Bund.

The public bus network has expanded since then with the massive construction of worker communities away from the old city to accommodate the rising working class, said Xue Liyong, senior researcher at the Shanghai History Museum.

“Where there was a new community, there was a new bus line.”

Vintage buses take you back to a century ago

Local residents write their stories on the historic bus line at the terminal station.

In the 1990s, Shanghai had Asia’s largest electric trolleybus system with 22 routes and around 1,000 electric buses with standing electric poles. Some buses have been exported overseas, for example to Kathmandu in Nepal.

The buses were so popular that they were assimilated into the Shanghai dialect slang which is still used by locals.

“Driving a trolleybus”, for example, means speaking inappropriately, “driving the No. 11 bus” means on foot, “driving a night bus” means working at night, while “pigtail rises”, which refers to the disconnected metal poles of the buses, is an understatement for death.

Not only did the buses have nostalgic coatings, but the Route No. 20 terminal station near Zhongshan Park also underwent a refurbishment to resemble the London-style bus station and “jet pavilion”, a classic charging station for electric buses with stand-up poles.

A glass dome supported by black iron frames provides shelter for waiting passengers and is a perfect film for old-fashioned buses.

The station has also been incorporated into the British-style park dating from 1914.

Vintage buses take you back to a century ago

Parts of the park walls have been removed to make it more accessible to residents and pedestrians.

Some of the park’s historic attractions, including a 160-year-old plane tree, believed to be the oldest in East Asia, and an open-air concert hall built in the 1920s, are now visible to station passengers. .

According to the Changning district government, the area will include a park, a road, a university, a bus line and trees over a century old.

Across Wanhangdu Road, formerly known as Jessfield Road when it was built in 1864, walls and fences have been demolished between East China University of Political Science and Law and the waterfront from Suzhou Creek to allow visitors to observe several historic buildings belonging to the prestigious St John’s University, founded in 1879.

Standing under a traditional British bus pavilion and waiting for a bus from the 1920s, while enjoying the scenery of a park built in 1914 and the university campus built in 1879 is a surreal experience. No wonder so many people flocked there over the holidays to reminisce about their own bittersweet old age.

In In an effort to reduce exhaust emissions into the atmosphere from public transport buses, the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) has initiated the pilot phase of the use of natural gas powered buses compressed (CNG) for passenger operations on Marina/CMS for Lekki and Ajah-Epe bus lines.

As part of the pilot phase, 10 high occupancy vehicles would be deployed for the service.

The operation franchised to a bus operating company named Femadec will gradually increase the number of buses to 100 after data proves the sustainability of using CNG.

Over the years, LAMATA has been involved in studies to find alternative fuel energy sources in transportation operations. The deployment of CNG powered buses will provide useful data for future decision on wide healthy use of these buses for passenger transport operations in Lagos.

CNG burns cleaner and reduces carbon monoxide by more than 80% compared to traditional gasoline and diesel. CNG-powered vehicles also run quieter than gasoline and diesel vehicles, resulting in less noise pollution.

The bus operating company will have its operational base at Ajah Terminal and will use the bus shelters along the Lekki-Epe corridor for its operation.

The fare card, Cowry, will be used to pay for services on the buses.

“Los siguen llegando buses”

Defensores piden ayuda al gobierno para los solicitantes de asylum

By Gregg McQueen

Miles of Han migrants traveled to the city of Nueva York by bus.

More than 6,000 applicants from asylum han llegado a la ciudad de Nueva York en los últimos meses.

The defenders of the immigrants will concentrate on the steps of the Ayuntamiento el 26 de agosto para pedir al gobierno federal, así como a los legisladores de l estado de Nueva York y de la ciudad, que tomen medidas urgentes para ayudar a la oleada de solicitantes de asylum that llegan has the city of Nueva York.

Los defensores manifestaron en el Ayuntamiento.

A principios de agosto, el gobernador de Texas, Greg Abbott, began to travel by bus to the inmigrants to the city of Nueva York since they were detained al cruzar the border of Estados Unidos des de México. Seen as a reaction of the Republican Abbott to President Joe Biden’s abusive border policies, the initiative has caused miles of immigrants to head regularly to the Autoridad Portuaria de Manhattan bus terminal.

Los voluntarios han asistido a los migrantes recién llegados a la Autoridad Portuaria.

In the demonstration, organized by the Coalición de Inmigración de Nueva York (NYIC, por sus acronyms in English), groups of defense and funcionarios carried out a coordinated gubernamental response to satisfy the most urgent needs of the inmigrants.

“La ciudad, el estado y el gobierno federal deben liderar la movilización de una respuesta integral para satisfacer las necesidades de nuestros neoyorquinos recién llegados”, dijo el director ejecutivo de la NYIC, Murad Awawdeh.

“Nuestros hermanos y hermanas de América Latina se merecen algo mucho mejor”, dijo Nilbia Coyote, executive director of New Immigrant Community Empowerment.

Para algunos migrantses de México, el viaje a la ciudad de Nueva York implies recorrer casi 3,000 millas hasta la borderera sur de Estados Unidos, y luego viajar en autobús dure otras 2,000 millas, dijo Awawdeh.

“Estas personas han soportado viajes largos, arduos y peligrosos porque creen en el sueño americano y creen que podrán buscar refugio aquí”, dijo.

Organizaciones comunitarias se han organized para prestar asistencia in situ.

The state association Catalina Cruz instructed Abbott to use migrants as “political laborers” and said that families entering Estados Unidos required a great deal of medical attention and legal services.

“Es hora de que nuestro gobierno deje de estar en modo de emergencia todo el tiempo”, commented. “Nuestro gobierno debe tener un plan para atender las necesidades de los solicitantes de asylum”.

“[Debe haber] una respuesta holística para satisfacer las necesidades de nostros neoyorquinos recién llegados”, dijo el director ejecutivo de NYIC, Murad Awawdeh.

“Nuestros hermanos y hermanas de América Latina se merecen algo mucho mejor”, dijo Nilbia Coyote, executive director of New Immigrant Community Empowerment. “Es hora de que los acojamos con dignidad y respeto”.

The Dra. Yomaris Peña, medico of SOMOS Community Care, said that the migrants that llegan a la Terminal de Autobuses de la Autoridad Portuaria han pasado with frecuencia días sin comida ni agua suficientes.

The asambleísta estatal Catalina Cruz acusó an Abbott de utilizar a los inmigrantes as “peones políticos”.

“Están sufriendo”, dijo Peña. “Apenas pueden caminar porque estuvieron caminando Durante muchas semanas”.

SOMOS is working to provide urgent medical attention to migrants, dijo Peña, así como vacunas y tratamiento preventive para los niños.

“La asistencia sanitaria es un derecho, no un privilegio”, dijo. “This crisis is going to end pronto. Los autobuses siguen llegando”.

El día de la manifestation, the NYIC launched a promotional campaign denominated Welcome to New Yorkque reclama specific actions of the gobierno to manage the influx of migrants.

Diariamente llegan at the Autoridad Portuaria seeking asylum in buses coming from Texas.

At the federal level, the NYIC assists the Departamento de Seguridad Nacional que proporcione immediate refuge a los migrants transports y a viviendas y otros servicios, en lugar de abandonarlos en lugares remotos.
