Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

This is driven by an elitist NYC-DOT to force feed people onto the NYC Ferry money pit. Not a pleasant way to go on a 19 degree morning either. If Byford goes along with this to take De Blasio's bullet, he needs to go back to Canada and let him screw up TTC's bus service instead.

Killing the Q53 makes killing Newport Ave service look trivial by comparison, though neither should happen. The whole point of the Q53 was to serve north-south Queens needs with the absence of the LIRR, which the Q52 does a poor job of doing.

The emphasis is simply dumping people on the nearest "subway", regardless of what subway station and its amenities (local only, non-ADA). De-hubbing Jackson Hts, which is aside from being a good subway hub, is a destination in itself, is quite the anti-thesis of any real transportation planning.
