Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

We have a uniform standard already which is from 400 feet to 600 feet. There are a few that are 200 feet apart and a few greater than 600 feet. What needs to be looked at are the ones that are 200 feet apart to determine why. Usually it is because it is in front of a major land use. Some 200 feet stops could be 400 or 600 feet apart and some 400 feet stops coukd be 600 feet apart, but greater than 600 feet where there are residences is not advisable because in some cases you already have to walk a quarter mile to get to the bus route, so widening the stops further may mean too long of a walk to the bus.

People don't want to take a bus if they have to walk a half mile at both ends if the ride is on,y a half mile long to begin with. Why pay for a ride if you have to walk two thirds of the distance? That's why people take cabs.
