Re: Why there are few off-street terminals in NYC?

Posted by NorthShore on Thu Jun 13 23:12:32 2013, in response to Re: Why there are few off-street terminals in NYC?, posted by NIMBYkiller on Thu Jun 13 21:39:05 2013.

The New York & North Shore Traction Co. went bankrupt. The North Shore Bus co. was formed by a different owner to take over the routes and operate buses in 1920.
As you stated the routes were Flushing to Roslyn (now N20), Port Washington to Mineola (now N23) and Mineola to Hicksville (now part of N24- not the N20 routing).
North Shore Bus extended the Roslyn line to Glen Cove (the Q12/N21).
The traction company also had the Flushing-Whitestone line, which became the Q14 under North Shore Bus.
