Re: Q66 Bus Stops Discontinued Every 4 Blocks Or So.

Thanks for the correction and troubled history behind this. Between this and what they have done to block the subway to LaGuardia Airport, reading this board will surely have you hating Astoria in no time lol.

They couldn’t stand Rikers Island passengers being in their area so much, that Rikers Island passengers to this day have to circuitously meander their way all the way down to Queensbridge/Queens Plaza to get to the subway, when the Steinway Street and Ditmars Boulevard stations are much closer.

If a “crosstown” route to Ridgewood would perform poorly, then I think that Rikers Island riders would instead be better served by a route to either East Harlem or The Hub in The Bronx via the Astoria Boulevard station and RFK Bridge than the Q100. Another route to the Jackson Heights Bus Terminal that’s similar in concept to the Q70 could also do well. Either way, the city wants to close it, so this will all be moot in a few years.
