Anyone remember the proposed Q94 Limited between Flushing and Fordham Plaza? It's a killer idea. But I heard [Don't know if it was true] it would follow the Bx9between West Farms Square and Fordham Plaza. I want it to travel like this:


Cross Bronx Expressway -> Tremont Av -> 3 Av

Via the Q44, then the Bx40/Bx42, then the Bx15/Bx55.


Stops In The Bronx:


Bruncker Blvd/Cross Bronx

Castle Hill Av/Cross Bronx

Hugh J. Grant Circle

White Plains Rd/Cross Bronx

West Farms Square

Tremont Av/Southern Blvd

Tremont Av/Crotona Av

Tremont Av/3 Av

3 Av/E 180 St

3 Av/E 183 St

Fordham Plaza


Someone like Cotb16 can tweak this list for me, I was using the Bronx Map ^^


How about having the Q94 run on East 182nd St to fill a crosstown gap between East 180th St and Fordham Rd. It can serve Aquinas HS, Little Italy, and St. Barnabas Hospital.


After White Plains Rd, it can stop at the following:

Rosedale/Cross Bronx


Morris Park/180th St

Southern/182nd St

Crotona Av

3rd Av/184th St

Fordham Plaza

I always thought the Bx14 should be restructured way before its cancellation. Since the MTA is changing things around The Co-op Pelham bay area,


The Bx23 should be extended to to Parkchester via Westchester Avenue/ Metropolitan Avenue.

Meanwhile extend the new Bx24 to Bay Plaza

More bus routes.


The M61: A replica of the M60, but instead of going south, it goes north to Riverbank Park. After leaving Queens, the M61 goes up 125th before turning on Broadway, then to W. 145th before turning to the Bx19/M11 Riverbank Park terminal.


The QM27 LTD: This bus replicate the (7) Train, but only makes stops at these places:

1. Times Square & 42nd Street

2. 5 Avenue & 42nd Street

3. Grand Central/Park Av & 42nd Street

4. Junction/Queens Blvds.

5. Corona Av & Junction Bl.

6. Roosevelt Blvd & Junction Blvd.

7. Northern Blvd & Junction Blvd.

8. Citi Field & Northern Blvd.

9. Main Street Station & Roosevelt Blvd.


It goes across 42nd Street, down 2nd Avenue, turns to the Queens Midtown Tunnel and stays on the expressway until Junction Blvd. It then turns on Junction, turns on Northern Blvd, and then turns south to the Main Street Station. This bus is Queens-bound only and runs four trips on weekday afternoons: 4:55 PM, 5:25 PM, 5:55 PM, 6:25 PM.


The M19: This routes compensates the current M9 and former M21's Avenue C branch in the form of a combination. Instead of its last stop at 23rd Street like the current M9, it'd go up to the Bellevue Hospital a few blocks away like the old M21. (This is built on a fantasy idea of the old M9 returning to its old route form prior to the cuts.)


The M97 LTD: This route travels up 11th Avenue and West Street between Columbia University/120 Street between Amsterdam and Broadway and Vesey Street. The stops are as follows.


1. Vesey Street/North End Avenue (Downtown Terminal)

2. BMCC/West St.

3. Christopher Street/West Street.

4. 14th Street/West Street.

5. 23rd Street/11th Avenue

6. 34th Street/"

7. 42nd Street/"

8. 50th St./"

9. 57th St./"

10. 66th St./"

11. 72nd St./"

12. 79th St./"

13. 86th St./"

14. 96th St./"

15. 106th St./Broadway

16. 110th St./Broadway

17. Amsterdam Av./114th Street (Uptown only)

18. 120th Street between Amsterdam & Broadway (North Terminal)

19. 116th Street/Broadway (Downtown only)

These are just random ideas that just popped into my head:


B33 operates weekdays only between Kings County Hospital and Red Hook-IKEA.

via Clarkson Av, Parkside Av, Prospect Park SW, 15 St, 8 Av SB-9 Av NB, 9 St, Lorraine St and into IKEA.


B27/B32* will operate at all times between East NY-Broadway Junction and Bay Ridge-Shore Rd.

via ENY Ave, Clarkson Av, Parkside Av, and Fort Hamilton Pkwy up to 92 St, then via 4 Av to Shore Rd.

*B27 LCL/B32 LTD weekday service.


B21 operates all times between Coney Island-Stillwell Av and Downtown Brooklyn.

via Ocean Pkwy, Prospect Park SW, and 4 Ave.


M105/M105 LTD* operates between Port Authority Bus Terminal, Manhattan and Cotsco-39 St/1 Ave, Brooklyn. via 7 Av (SB), 8 Av (NB), Manhattan Bridge, and 3 Ave (BK).

*M105 LTD runs between 7AM and 7PM. (Customers should use the M20 for local service. M105 runs local in Brooklyn.) All other times, M105 makes all stops.


S67 operates all times between St. George Ferry Terminal and Bensonhurst-Bay Pkwy/Shore Rd.

via Bay St, Verrazano Bridge, 86 St and Cropsey/Bath Avs.


B64 operates at all times between Sea Gate-W 37 St and Bay Ridge-Shore Rd, replacing the B74.

via Mermaid Av, Stillwell Av (D)(F)(N)(Q) Station Loop, Bath Av, 13 Av and Bay Ridge Ave.

I need to understand what they meant by 5-4-3-2-1?

It refers to what sections in co-op city a route would be served first, over the other....




the old Qbx1 that went via "5-4-3-2-1" meant that, a bus heading towards co-op city would serve section 5 first, then onto section 4, section 3, section 2, then section 1...


the old Qbx1 via "1-2-3-4-5" means the opposite... a bus heading towards co-op city would first serve section 1, then section 2, then 3, then 4, then 5...

All stops inside JFK Airport


The B5 would run 24/7, with Limited-Stop buses running the full route and local service between Bay Ridge/86 St and Brooklyn General Postal Facility 5AM-1AM. Late nights local buses would short-turn at Hylan Bl/Steuben St with a connection to the S78. Two school trips would arrive at New Dorp HS at 7:43AM and 7:48AM, and three would leave at 2:23, 2:28, and 3:03PM. The route would be split between three different depots: Jackie Gleason and Spring Creek would handle local service, while JFK and Castleton would handle limited service. The line would have 2.5-minute headways during rush, (every 5 minutes LTD), 5-minute headways middays (every 10 minutes LTD) middays and 5AM-8PM weekends, 8-minute headways (every 15 minutes LTD) 8PM-1AM, and 30-minute headways 1AM-5AM.

I would create the Q30A, a route that goes from Springfield Blvd right to Little Neck Pkwy, non-stop. Its one of the busiest routes during school hours for students going to high schools along the route.

Q50A from Co-op City (extension bus from Main Street directly to Queens College). This bus would travel straight through Kissena Boulevard from Main Street at the church (with no stops from there) until reaching the main front gate of the college (just off Horace Harding Expressway). Having a bus like this could be a big plus for students living in the Bronx. The Q50A would run in between and alternate with the Q50 (by ten minutes), arriving just as frequently. As such, it would also increase the amounts of Q50's running from Co-op City to Flushing/Main Street as well.




FROM CO-OP CITY: 6:15 - 7:00 PM and every 20 minutes (alternating between regular Q50).

From Queens College: Every 20 minutes until 11PM



Every 25 minutes from 7 AM until 6 PM (to & from Queens College).




BX23A extension every 20 minutes to go from Co-op City/Pelham Bay directly to Riverdale (231st/Broadway) - elevated train.

More route ideas.


The new B51: The bus route would return, but would be extended down to South Ferry during rush hour trips. The extended B51 would pass City Hall and continue heading down Broadway towards the South Ferry terminal. Returning from South Ferry, the bus goes up Centre Street and turn on Chambers and back to the original route. The B51's schedule would be revised as a 24-hour route.


The BxM8: An express bus that goes from Chelsea Piers and 14th Street/11 Av to Hunts Point via Central Park West, 125th Street, and the Hunts Point route of the Bx6. Hours are 6:30 AM to 8:00 PM with 20-minutes headways in rush hours and 60 minutes otherwise.


The QM14: This is the downtown loop twin of the QM15. Its Queens-bound route is Howard Beach and 102nd Street. Manhattan-bound, it travels south to the Financial District. Its hours are 6:25 AM to 8:55 AM with 10 to 15-minute headways Manhattan-bound and 4:05 PM to 6:40 PM Queens-bound.
