With some assistance, everyone can gain the confidence and knowledge to take advantage of public transit. If you are new to Nassau County...or just new to public transit..the NICE Team is here to assist! The NICE Customer Service team is committed to assisting riders of all abilities how best to take advantage of Nassau County's fixed-route public transit system.
