Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

Most buses already stop every three blocks. Many of the stops that used to be every other block has long been eliminated. What the “young” people are asking now is that they stop every five blocks or every quarter mile. Where there are Avenue blocks, it would be every other avenue or every six blocks. Considering that many do not live on the street where the bus operates and routes are spaced about every half mile, that increases the maximum walk to one half mile for some which is the same standard as a walk to a subway. People are willing to walk further to a subway than to a bus because trips are generally longer, so increasing bus stop spacing would just result in reduced ridership, not increased ridership as more will opt for more convenient choices even if they are more expensive or would just not make discretionary trips.
