Several GANYC members were interviewed for an article for The Patch, entitled "NYC Double-Decker Buses Are Disaster Waiting To Happen, Guides Say". The piece looks at the recent Top View sightseeing bus crash, and how these companies have sacrificed customer safety and satisfaction for profit. Since these companies largely stopped employing live guides, bad reviews and problems have compounded.
GANYC continues to advocate for City Council bill Int 1009-2023 , which would mandate a guide on the top of double-decker sightseeing buses, to help facilitate a safe and comfortable experience. We urge NYC residents to reach out to their local council member and urge them to sign on as a bill sponsor.
Thanks to Matt Troutman, for spotlighting this issue.
