Already, I am up in arms with their proposal for their QT74 route having their new southern terminal near the IND Elmhurst Avenue subway station, which is not ADA compliant and served by the "M" and "R" local trains. Long time riders of the Q49, which I am, use it as a feeder route going into the Roosevelt Avenue subway express station in Jackson Heights, thus along 35th Avenue would lose all of its bus service entirely.
The planners of the MTA forget that these bus routes are essential to make those easy connections with the subway at major transit hubs that have express train service, such as at Kew Gardens and Jackson Heights. They dropped the ball on this one!
