Re: Best Article I've Read on Reasons to Reactivate the Rockaway Beach Line

Disagree on your assessment, those buses aren't packed at all times of the day. and just because a bus is packed doesn't mean it demands a replacement by a 10 car subway line that has far less stops than the bus line. 18 buses is = to less than 2 full length subway trains. If 2 full length subway trains can handle the total PM rush, then the corridor doesn't warren the subway line.

Further more, if they're going to Manhattan or even Jamaica like your surprise statement claims, then why go ALL THE WAY up to Queens Blvd to take the IND lines, when you got the A line, and even the Airtrain, or even buses to take you to the 2 and 5, and the LIRR. That simply doesn't make sense. Theres options to go to Manhattan or Jamaica far faster so I doubt the commuter is going to Manhattan or Jamaica. Most riders are coming from the businesses at Queens Center, and Woodside, and once again that doesn't the warrant the expense of building a subway line.
