Re: VHB lands contract for environmental review of proposed Brooklyn Queens Connector

Transit planners tend to speak of 1/4 mile apart stops for surface vehicles.

Just about all transit planners in NYC, including SBS proponents, are using a 1/2 mile radius around stops. The bigger radius inflates the number of people the project would allegedly aid.

If the BQT stop radius were reduced to 1/4 mile, the number of "aided" people would be reduced to 184,390 and the percentage already living within 1/2 mile of a subway stop would be reduced to 84.2%.
