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.
