Q8 CUSTOMERS

EFFECTIVE SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2008

 

The western terminus of the Q8 will be extended to the Gateway Center Mall in Spring Creek, Brooklyn, to provide

service from Jamaica, Queens to this large regional shopping center.

 

Westbound, the extended Q8 will travel from its current terminal on Pitkin Avenue at Euclid Avenue via Euclid Avenue, Linden Boulevard, Fountain Avenue, and Seaview Avenue. Eastbound, the Q8 will travel via Seaview Avenue, Erskine Street, Vandalia Avenue, Fountain Avenue, Sutter Avenue, Montauk Avenue, Pitkin Avenue and Forbell Street, resuming its current travel path.

 

Eastbound service to bus stops on Glenmore Avenue (at Crescent Street, Lincoln Avenue and Grant Avenue) will be discontinued, use bus stops on Pitkin Avenue instead.

Service to the Gateway Center Mall will operate from 5 am until 12 midnight on weekdays, and from 6 am until 12 midnight on Saturdays and Sundays.

 

Now with the Q8 being extended, would we be able to see a depot split with spring creek and which ever depot the Q8 is located in? (Far Rockaway or JFK) I've never been to that area of brooklyn or other parts so I dont know how long the trip from jamaica to gateway center would be. Also, the Q8 Needs more buses on that route. The wait time is horrid...

 

And also, there are new bus routes being made for parts of queens, any idea what routes are they and where exactly will they be serving?

Yeah, the trip from jamaica to euclid is long by itself since it mostly travels through 101 Ave. Would it be possible to see a depot split, with extra added buses?

They should remove some stops on the Q8, I see a few on the same exact block!

 

Either way I'm glad this route is getting extended. I got tired of walking to Sutter/Linden.
