Re: Queens Transit Service Sufficiency Study

Posted by BrooklynBus on Tue Jun 11 19:02:10 2019, in response to Queens Transit Service Sufficiency Study, posted by Union Tpke on Fri Jun 7 06:00:00 2019.

I was in the Department in 1981 and 1982 when this study was undertaken. I knew the person who directed that study. I was the second director of the Brooklyn Sufficiency Study. There also wrre Manhattan and Staten Island Sufficiency studies also being conducted at the same time. The Bronx Study had been completed already. I never seen the final report since I was out of the Department by 1984.

I find the preface interesting because they explain that they did not accomplish the goals of the study which were to develop comprehensive system of bus proposals and rationalize them with the subway system. Then they state they will not be implementing many of the proposals they did develop because of funding constraints.

The report still looks better than the Brooklyn report that was prepared after I left. All that was were about five pages of text discussing the goals of the study and study methodology followed by 300 pages of tables and graphs and no recommendations. It was so embarrassing, I didn't even want a copy. The Staten Island Study resulted in two bus route changes, and I do nit believe the Manhattan Study resulted in any changes. The Director of the Manhattan Study asked me to give him some proposals because he didn't know what to do with the data. I refused and told him to do his job.
