The old school of transportation planning is not closed. That is the biggest mistake any planner will make in this era. There are reasons why things were planned that way. A garden variety bus usually served short trips, so you want most of the population within 1/4 mile of the bus stop. You have NEVER seen an agency kill a local bus route and just run limited stop buses only.
The old school recognized that not everyone lived on the bus route. There are certain parts of Queens where it is overdone with too many buses duplicating service, but my concern is that older people are going to struggle getting to these bus stops.
