Re: Queens Bus Redesign Draft Proposals

Triboro Coach had been considering having a stop at Liberty Avenue (northbound discharge only, southbound pick-up only) so that, for those persons originating in or destined for the Rockaways, connection could be made with Q11 for local stops along Woodhaven Boulevard, while keeping the Q53 an express, using the main roadway. But there was no motivation on the part of Triboro Coach to pursue such a plan, since it would receive thumbs-down from the NYCDOT. So it was never raised. Now that MTA Bus Company has taken over, and that there is no oversight at all from the city (be it the NYCDOT or elsewhere within the Administration, or be it the Council as successor to the Board of Estimate and its Bureau of Franchises), these matters of overreach, fostered by a lack of understanding of the needs of actual residents, will continue to destroy the rest of Queens County with this network "redesign," as was done with Q53.
