Re: NICE bus line changes kick off Sunday

I thought the meetings were impressive also. They held a presentation explaining all of the changes and the reasoning behind it, then had a discussion about it. It wasn't like the MTA public hearings where they have all of the politicians blabber on forever, then riders get up with pre-written blast offs. I went to the one at Hofstra , ugh.

These changes will be a good way to see if passengers have to be babied. Maybe it's easy to me since I'm a transit "advocate" lol. Fast track is always a good example, people adjusted, but initially they were crying and lost (or at least that's what the media had us believe).

The N22 isn't as complicated as it seems. N22 and N22A are the same as they have been, they will be on 30 min headways. N22X goes express between 179th and Roosevelt Field, in the reverse peak direction. The N22L takes the N22A route but turns straight on to Westbury Ave instead of going to Old Country Road. The N22L and X only have 3 or 4 trips per rush hour anyway.

If you're going to Roosevelt Field then you don't need to be concerned about the N22L, etc. We'll see how it goes, I saw a N22L on Old Country Road in January and it was kind of empty.

The N23 is easy, It will go to Hempstead At all times except rush hour where it will go to Mineola Intermodal Center. Once people have their schedules it will only take a little while for them to know the bus they typically catch and where it will run to and what time the change happens.

Basically South of Hillside Ave it becomes the N27. It will Connect Willis Ave to Roosevelt Field and Hempstead.
