  1. Let's say I still lived near the Brewer corridor. I would have the QT13 (nee Q113), QT19 (nee Q111 to Farmers), QT7 (nee Q89), QT43 (nee Q85) and the QT45 (nee Q111 to Rosedale). I don't think I would have to do anything different. I would have new options like the through Linden route that would give me a one seat ride to Gateway and the . It depends where I needed to go. I guess I wouldn't have to travel to Jamaica so much. Looking at these proposals, it seems like more routes are feeding to the more than the
  2. This is interesting. I always thought the B6 would get articulateds before the B1. It's not the B6 doesn't have draws too on the route. And then there's the Brooklyn Redesign...
  3. After working OT on Christmas and New Years, and battling the flu, I'm gonna put in my input on these proposed routes. Bronx bus revamp of 1984, the Queens redesign would like for you to hold his beer. QT1- Astoria-Downtown Brooklyn. Combination of the Q69 and the B62. The Q69 without the Queens Plaza portion. Maybe some short turns at Williamsburg? Runs 24/7. Possible depots: LGA or GA QT2- Steinway-Williamsburg. Combo of the Q101 and the B24. Proposed for LTD service. Doesn't serve Queens Plaza. Operates 24/7. Possible depots: LGA or GA QT3- Jamaica-Williamsburg. The Q54 with no service east of Jamaica Center. Operates 24/7. Possible depot: FP. Maybe it keeps it short turns at Fresh Pond Rd QT4- Jackson Hts-Downtown Brooklyn. The B57 extended further east into Queens. What will replace the Downtown-Red Hook portion? Operates 24/7. Possible depots: LGA or GA QT5- Jamaica-Brookdale Hospital. I wonder who actually did this trip? Combination of the B15 and the Q8. Maybe keep the Euclid short turns? No service east of Sutphin. 24/7 service M-F. Possible depots: JFK or ENY QT6- Flushing-Ridgewood. The Q58 without the Corona Av portion. Seems like it loses LTD service. It actually stops at Flushing ! Operates 24/7. Possible depots: FP QT7- Cambria Hts-Spring Creek. Basically an extended Q89 (could have done this without a redesign). Operates 24/7. One of many routes to link SE Queens with SW Queens. Possible depots: JA, BP, JFK or SC. QT10-Rego Park-LGA Marine Terminal. Combo of the Q23 and 29. 24/7 service. Possible depot: LGA QT11- East Elmhurst-Fresh Meadows via Kew Gardens. Combo of the Q23 and the Q46. 24/7 service. Possible depots: LGA or CP QT12- Elmhurst-Queensboro CC.

  4. Gotta love the new QT71! Bay Terrace to Green Acres, no subway stations served!
  5. Me personally, I would just remove the T. They didn't do this in the Bronx redesign
  6. All it takes is a few extra seconds to read the sign to find out where the bus is going.
  7. Just looked at that screen shot. Excuse me while I retch
  8. Uh, no. Would be nice (no pun intended), but not happening. Imagine a C40LF going down Hempstead Tpke had the stuck around
  9. According to the website, it's on to the Brooklyn redesign
  10. Imagine this with the 63 St connector... I don't think the would have ever existed
  11. So we posted a new schedule and now it won't serve Bulova until what, we're dead? Typical shenanigans
  12. $4.5 billion for phase 2 of the Second Av Subway (96-125). More delays for the M15
  13. Well, since the M100 would no longer serve 125 east of Amsterdam, no one will bat an eye, the M104 loses service on 42 east of Times Square, everyone lost their minds. As far as those routes you mentioned, we may see this: M31- no service west of York Av. (Goes back to its early '90's routing) M57- no service on West End Av. Possible M12 extension? M14- the Lower East Side Abingdon Square branch may get its own designation and/or extended on either end
