GANYC Discusses Sightseeing Bus Guides on WNYC

We thank The Brian Lehrer Show and WNYC for spotlighting the plight of laid-off sightseeing bus guides.

Listen here: The Future of NYC Tour Bus Guides

Patrick Casey, the chair of our Government Relations Committee, spoke on the segment about the need for live guides, and the crucial role they play in a safe environment for these buses. And, of course, live guides create a personal experience that best sells our great city.

We urge the NYC City Council to swiftly pass bill 289-A to keep our double-decker buses safe, and a worthwhile value to visitors from across the world.
