When Jamaica closes for rebuild...

Recommended Posts

I'm curious as to how this would work out,

 

would the Q17 go to CS

 

while the other routes to QV?

 

(im basing this off how close the depots are)

 

Would that overcrowd QV? or CS?

 

share your ideas and thoughts

I was wondering this too.

 

Here's what I think might happen:

 

Flushing Routes like the (Q30) & (Q17) can go to CS/QV. As for the rest like the (Q4), (Q5), (Q42), (Q77), (Q84), (Q85) may have to go to (MTA) Bus Depot(s) (If CS or QV doesn't have room for some to most of them). Otherwise besides the (Q17) & (Q30) situation I dunno where the rest of the routes will go.

The (Q3), (Q5), (Q77), (Q84) and (Q85) might go to JFK. The (Q4) and the (Q42) might go to BP

Yeap but idk if they can hold anymore buses....JFK is crowded as well!

Ah, a Nova LFS on the (Q5). What a sight. Well QV might have some room since it lost the (Q75) and (Q79) last summer

So therefore, QV and CS will be crowded as hell

Another question is, who would take their NG's and RTS's?

 

I would say it like this:

NG's can go to CS, QV* (provided if mechanic traning and etc take place) + some to Brooklyn OR Manhattan

 

RTS to Queens Village and Brooklyn.

I could see most of the NGs going to CS and then whats left to QV for the other routes.

 

QV can handle NGs the drivers I know said they know how to operate them/were trained.

If Jamaica closes for rehab, don't be surprised to see the Q44 move to West Farms in order to make room for the Q17, Q27, Q30, and possibly the Q46 or Q88 over there. This would free space at Queens Village up for the Q3, 4, 5, 42, 77, 84, and 85.

Q44 is not going to West Farms @ all!

You'll never see CNG's on the Q44!

I'm just saying that if Jamaica closes for rehab, the Q44 might have to make the move to WF in order to make room for routes such as the Q17 and Q27.

Can't wait till Jamaica closes for rehab...There's always buses parked on the sidewalk...It looks outdated compared to other depots...I didn't even know elevators in depots existed...Hopefully the routes won't get so messed up after they move :cool:

Let's go back to 1974 when MOST of us (including myself) was not even born yet.

 

Jamaica and Flushing (Casey Stengel) was overcrowded before Queens Village opened.

 

IF Jamaica does close for rehab, the following COULD happen:

 

Casey Stengel: Q12, Q13, Q15, Q15A (UGH!), Q16, Q17, Q20A, Q20B, Q26, Q27 (returns), Q28, Q31, Q44, Q46 (that's possible), Q48, Q76

 

Queens Village: Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, Q5, Q30, Q36, Q42, Q43, Q77, Q83 (possibly interlined with the Q42), Q84, Q85, X63, X64, X68

 

However, this is ONLY a guess but that's how I would see this. I mean the ONLY thing that I remembered being discussed was building a NEW depot and just moving buses into that depot.

 

Oh and just food for thought, Queens Village can hold up to 300 buses. Casey Stengel (from what I was told) can hold up to about 260-275 buses.I think I'm wrong but maybe someone hear can share.

Jamaica currently has 188 buses so sounds doable, plus there are buses that are going to be displaced so your plan sounds VERY doable
