Re: Left Behind by the Nationís Largest Subway System

The Rockaways are well served by facilities. It's a different issue, if the service does not meet expectations. That's a management, not an ifrastructure problem.

The numbers I gave, included all commute to work trips where both the home and job locations were within 1/2 mile of the route. The only commutes that were excluded were those whose whose distance were less than 1 mile.

Except that's the point. The other purpose of the RBB is to provide a service that cuts across Queens. It's not just a management problem, because there are no operable tracks that go from the Rockaways to Queens Blvd without going miles out of the way, so it's not simply a mismanaged service.

And you also missed the point of my other question. I agree that you should not count trips under a mile, but I don't agree that you should limit it only to home<->job trips. I'm saying you should consider ANY trips over a mile. That should also include trips of at least half a mile on the bus lines which continue on the Queens Blvd train lines.
