Q66 Bus Stops Discontinued Every 4 Blocks Or So.

Posted by William A. Padron on Thu Sep 9 20:16:50 2021

Well, it looks like they may have started in cutting the number of bus stops in the city already, and right under the nose of unaware riders.

Case in point, stops along the #Q66 route have been eliminated every four blocks on each side in the Jackson Heights area (zip code 11372), and signs were changed at them with the new parking regulations.

For example, the stops along Northern Boulevard at 87th Street (south side), 88th Street (north side) and 91st Street (northside) have been eliminated. I had to tell waiting passengers that the buses no longer stop there, and must walk two blocks to the next one. The #Q66 buses are definitely following that edict, by passing those former stops.

The reasoning for this, ahem, change? It is a "Street Improvement Project" by the city. And so it goes...
