Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

Posted by Joe V on Fri Jan 10 18:59:40 2020, in response to Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals, posted by New Flyer #857 on Fri Jan 10 08:44:12 2020.

The original purpose of the Q53 franchise was to replace a commuter rail service, therefore the long nonstop run, and not to be glorified Q11 and eat Green's lunch.

It went past Parkside as they figure the area was served by Forest Hills station, and another bus was established for Brooklyn Manor, only dropped by Walder in 2010. Transfers to the Jamaica el were not a consideration because that is not what LIRR used the RBB line for.

65 years later, the Q53 has a different purpose, but the MTA is downright stupid to take it off and force-feed the Q52.
