Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

The new Q22 (QT22) has a stub end terminal at Rockaway Turnpike & Burnside Avenue, and will no longer serve Saint John's hospital, or any of those dense apartment complexes off of Seagirt Boulevard. Redfern Houses lost their bus stop. Lastly, the QT22 will now stop running at around 10:30PM instead of 1AM like it does presently.

The new Q113 (QT13) runs nonstop between Hillside Avenue and Linden Boulevard, essentially skipping the entire Jamaica Avenue CBD, and requires backtracking to transfer to if you're trying to travel between the Inwood area and points north.

They're forcing the Q52 down people's throats even though the Q53 has a direction connection to the Queens Boulevard Express Subway lines, is more popular with beachgoers in the summer and riders in general, and serves the side of the Rockaways that has no regular direct subway service into Manhattan.

They didn't even attempt to study the potential feasibility of any new direct connections from the Rockaway Peninsula to Green Acres Mall or the Brighton subway line, both of which I'm sure could attract decent ridership.

There is no way the Rockaway Peninsula will let these changes fly.
