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

I have a bad feeling that service along Penelope Avenue will soon be a distant memory. The problem with service along Penelope Avenue is that serves mostly medium-density residential areas, but few areas with significant job density save for the Rego Park shopping area, which alone doesn’t generate enough ridership to make the route efficient, neither does the (M) station at Metropolitan Avenue, which has always been shunned by Q38 and Q67 riders for whatever reason. It also doesn’t help that if you’re heading towards Manhattan on the (R) train, you’d have to circle back all the way to Rego Park whereas the nearby Q47 and Q29 routes take a straighter path to the the (R) train.

Maybe the community will end up saving some (probably barebones and still underutilized) service along 63rd Drive and Penelope Avenue, but it will never reach its full potential so long as it forgoes Queens Center and “commercial” Ridgewood along Myrtle Avenue, which are the most significant ridership generators in that area.
