QM1/QM1A/QM24 Redesignation


Amtrak7

Recommended Posts

 

Queens IS part of NYC, and has been for the past 112 years. For whatever reason, some folks still don't accept that. :D
LoL I quite often don't get people from the outer Boroughs who say im going to New York and I hit them with the reply you mean Manhattan

All the way down at the bottom of page 67, why is it talking about Stengel? If there was a change to one of my local routes, I think I would have noticed. I will let them partly off the hook, one of thier listed traffic generators got a name change.

 

 

If im not mistaken, the Q58's School trips come from Stengel.

It seems fine as it is (i.e. no separation, read the sign when the bus comes).

 

Apparently, that isn't enough.

 

A few years before the MTA takeover, a passenger complained that she wanted to meet a friend on a morning QM1/1A bus but did not know which branch the friend was riding because the destination signs showed the destination (duh!) instead of the origin. As a result of that complaint, Queens Surface pressured DOT into reprogramming the express readings with each route's origin as well as destination (e.g. "QM1 Fresh Meadows to 6 Av").

The QM22 and QM24 started in 1988

 

Thanks for correcting my mistake. They started around the time Triboro first received MCI buses. Do you know why thought the QM24 runs down 8th AVe?

Well, the QM1 changes are official! Signs are all over Union Turnpike now stating that we now have the qm1-Midtown, qm5-midtown, qm6-midtown, qm7-downtown, and qm8-downtown as of June 27. I have a picture of the sign on my cell, but I have no idea how to send/post it here.

I guess they figured that they are making so many changes on Sunday anyway that they might as well confuse even more people.

Well we got the June 11 memo in the Command Center and it has all the new destination sign codes for the renumbering of the QM1As. Knight Rider has some work to do to update all of you as to what the new signs will look like.

When is this starting? Other than the new maps posted, there is absolutely NO mention of this on the MTA site.

 

June 27 2010. The final nail in the Steinway Transit coffin. All our old routes are either gone or renamed.
