Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

Let's look at it from this angle:

To go "straight north" from the Rockaways pre-2005 you had to take either the Q21 or Q53. The Q21 was so infrequent and indirect that in many people's minds at the time, you might as well have said you only had the Q53. But the Q53 was nonstop after Broad Channel to Rego Park. Thus, even if you could have managed with (or perhaps preferred) a destination much closer than Rego Park, where whatever need you were trying to meet by commuting could have been met (access to a potential job site, or the J/Z subway for example), you would go through to Rego Park or beyond almost "against your will" because that's where the bus took you and you would have to adjust perhaps some major components of your life around that arrangement.

Then if there is an added fare because you are on a nonstop bus, that adds insult to injury.

My main point is even if every nonstop run was populated, it does not imply that people are pleased with the arrangement.
