Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

Not just a main corridor, but the *busiest* corridor of the network. Something like 25% of passenger trips for the entire bus system use this corridor. These buses are standing room only most of the day, every day, except for some of the #1s during peak that happen to slot in behind a 905 (since most people prefer the 905).

CDTA is allergic to anything better than every 10 minutes, resulting in some very crowded peak buses. They are going to try a new BRT corridor in a few years with a dedicated busway at 6 minute intervals using artics, hoping it will siphon off passengers from the #12 (every 15 minutes, except PM peak every 10 minutes), #11 (every 12 minutes weekdays, 24 weekends), and #10 (every 20 minutes, except peak every 15 minutes). Since they're trying to combine the functions of 3 busy routes, they might create a new corridor from nothing which will beat Central Ave's ridership.
