Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

I'm not on principle opposed to "zone-expresses," but certain conditions have to be met. There has to be an abundance of service on the section being skipped, and a way to transfer to that local service without having to pay another fare (or sacrifice the chance to transfer to the subway or another corridor).

Today a nonstop Q53 wouldn't be as terrible as it was pre-2005, presuming the Q11, 21, and 52 stay as they are and transfers are always free. But I couldn't go so far to say it's preferable. It would need at least stops at Jamaica and Liberty Avs, and probably more. The usage at the intervening stops speaks for itself.

The proposed nonstop route on Union Tpke between 188th and Parsons is not the way to go. No route should directly bypass a large university campus without stopping.
