Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

Triboro Coach had plans to provide Q53 service at Liberty Avenue and points south within Howard Beach (discharge only northbound, pick-up only southbound). However, in latter years NYCDOT would not permit any of the private bus companies to make any service changes because NYCDOT wanted to use the lack of any responsive service changes as evidence that the service ought to be transferred to the MTA. Catch-22? After the MTA acquisition, they then implemented several of the private bus company plans (e.g., Q19 to Flushing), but in some cases, like here with the Q53, they overdid it, and destroyed what they had taken.
