Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

*Why does the QT41 (new Q84) stub at Francis Lewis Boulevard? Am I really supposed to think that more 120th Avenue passengers east of Francis Lewis Boulevard would prefer a direct bus to Cunningham Park over Jamaica?*

The running gag that I had for years was that the Q84 was the old people and kids bus for everybody that couldn't make the walk the Q4. I guess the planners presumed the same idea, but decided that the Cambria portion of the Q84 wasn't needed, and that this new route would be a good substitute.

I get the feeling that the authors are presuming that people are going to be willing to walk to catch new routes, or that they'll put up with new transfers, especially if we go to OMNY with Oyster style fare caps.

Why are they swapping the Q83 (now QT39) and Q3 (now QT68) north of Liberty Avenue? There is nothing wrong with the current arrangement. Lots of airport workers in Hollis use the Q3.

I think they're presuming that current Q83 riders want the F train *sooner*, so the theory is that it should make their bus trip to the subway shorter.
