Here are the numbers for the Rockaway Beach Branch for a 1/2 mile radius around stations from Ozone Park to Rego Park.

The desert population, workers and jobs are in areas that are further than 1/2 mile of an existing subway station.

This is a textbook example of duplicating service, when other people have none.

About 85% of those served already are within 1/2 mile of an existing subway station.

The RBB's penetration for Queens residents in transit deserts is about 1.5%.

The BQX and some of the RPA's vital subway expansions are worse.
