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

I understand that the Q53 is very popular north of Queens Center, and I am not a fan of cutting service back to Queens Center per se, but I most definitely understand why the MTA wants to do that.

Consider these factors: The MTA's proposed Broadway bus route between Ravenswood and Rego Park that would duplicate the Q53, the similarly duplicative (M) and (R) trains, heavy traffic on Roosevelt Avenue, Broadway, and Woodhaven Boulevard that surely doesn't help the reliability of such a long and busy route, and that the other 3 Woodhaven Boulevard routes terminate at Queens Center Mall.

All that being said, I can most definitely see where the MTA is coming from, even though I understand that such a cut would really suck for the riders.

You do have a good point with the route losing its connection to LaGuardia service with such a cut, but that could be resolved by extending the Woodhaven buses to LeFrak City, extending the Q72 to 63rd Drive and Woodhaven Boulevard, or even circuitously extending the Q72 to Queens Center from its current terminal.
