Dollar, dollar, dollar bill y’all!
A new van service has written a proposal to the Department of Transporation (DOT) to gain permission to operate 20 vans along Shorefront Parkway. According to the letter written to DOT, AJAP Trailways LLP has requested routes to start from Beach 108th Street down to Beach 67th Street and Shorefront. The route also will continue to Beach Channel Drive and 67th Street, ending its route off at the Freeway & Mott Avenue (Far Rockaway).
The current proposal is still under the approval process and Comunity Board 14 will still have their chance to hand over input on AJAP. All civics in the catchment areas of the operation were also informed and encouraged to submit input concerning the routes.
Dollar van buses have been under heavy scrutiny in the Rockaways and Flatbush, Brooklyn for some time. Many drivers were driving without proper licensing. Some drivers were even involved in several accidents in the past year, with one ending fatally.

This is a developing story and we will continue to update everyone once more information is provided.
