Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

No one stated that maximum throughput on Queens Boulevard was the only goal of society so your comment is irrelevant. Further, no one is talking about adding lanes to QB, only keeping them in tact, so your comment about induced demand also is not applicable.

Actually, it SBS on Woodhaven not so popular. Two Community boards voted it down.

No they did not show traffic would be removed in places. They only stated that bus lanes would be created and three lanes of through traffic would be maintained in each direction. One had to be aware of the existing conditions and look at the maps to determine that lanes would be taken from general traffic. IT WAS NEVER EXPLICITLY STATED VERBALLY OR IN WRITING ANYWHERE. That was my point.

There definitely are downsides, but you just can't see them or admit them.

$20 million is what was originally stated at the first few meetings. You weren't even there, and I was, but you still argue.

I have the links for two of them and a screenshot of the third. But what good would it do. You would only discredit them by saying something like since they were from three different periods of time, the amount could have fluctuated and doesn't prove dishonesty.

But it does. Because one shows the amount of federal, state and local funding received (approx. 38 million), and the other is a statement from a DOT report (2013) saying that the total capital cost is only $15 million. I will only post the links, if you admit a discrepancy.

I also have photos showing completely worn out bus lane pavement markings on two different routes which you will discount them by saying they do not prove poor execution since the lines were in tact when the lanes took effect and it is irrelevant that they wore out. So again why should I bother?

The B44SBS WAS two years late. You knew exactly what I meant. It was scheduled for implementation in 2011 and was not implemented until November, 2013. You can't refute that, so you make a bad joke.
