Recommended Posts

Queens buses do enter Nassau County. The Q85 and Q5 go to Green Acres, the Q111 has rush hour service to Cedarhurst, and the Q113 goes through Hewlett and I believe Inwood as well to get to Far Rockaway.

Queens and Brooklyn is Long Island. If you mean Nassau County there are many Queens routes that go into Nassau. The Q46,QM6, Q36 on one side of Jamaica Ave, Q2 and Q110 going to the race track the Q110 during the 2 special rush hour trips, Q113 has a few stops, Q85, and Q5 to Green Arces.

 

NEXT TIME WATCH YOUR SPELLING ;)

Please correct your grammar

 

 

That awkward moment when you tell someone to correct their grammar yet you screw up on grammar in your post. You forgot a period at the end of your sentence.

Some municipalities that border Queens don't want buses traveling into their neighborhoods. Back in 1995-96, there was an attempt by the MTA to get the now-discontinued Q79 bus into the village of Floral Park, but that was thwarted by opposition from local residents and high-ranking village officials.

 

If the MTA attempted to extend the Q4 into Elmont, it could be met with the same kind of opposition that killed the aforementioned Q79 extension.

Queens buses are meant for Queens and aren't supposed to serve Long Island. Just like how Nice Bus is not supposed to service Queens-only passengers (you cannot ride Nice Bus without going to/from Long Island)

You are not making any sense. You can look at the Queens bus map and see all the routes that go into Nassau County. I think its time for this thread to close.

The N1 & Q4 have nothing to do with each other, just because they happen to come close to each other in Elmont. If you live somewhere along Central Avenue or Elmont Road or whatever, the Q4 doesn't do you any good.

No it won't it would allow NICE to change their elmont routes a bit like reroute N1 and absorb parts of N8/2 the extension is into areas already served by bus. Edited by qjtransitmaster

I'm not sure, but you may need a comma there. I started to laugh at your post hysterically when I saw your comment. :lol:

 

EDIT: Comma made larger for emphasis.

Some Queens buses does go into Nassau County just like everyone here stated.

 

Q4 and Q85 local sells Valley Stream's Green Acres Mall because it's major stop for shopping mall.

Q111 Cedarhust and Q113 goes through western portion of Nassau County to/from the Rockaway Peninsula.

 

Q36 goes along City Line, where portion of NICE n24 on Jamaica Av, Queens passengers can be escorted.

 

Q12 bus turns around City Line.

 

NICE only allows Queens passenger on n31, n32, n33 in Far Rockaway section only, and other than NICE is closed-door policy in Queens.

 

It's just like Bronx, BxM3 express buses goes into Westchester County's Yonkers, or Bee-Line Bus go into Bronx or Bee-Line BxM4C goes into Manhattan.

 

Remember when NICE was still MTA Long Island Bus and there was huge LIRR Weekend Construction due to heavey rainstorm hitting the switches at Jamaica.

 

Cheese Buses, NYCT and MTA Bus assisting and escorted Long Island Railroad passengers between Jamaica, and Minela, and Jamaica-Queens Village. That time, MTA Bus enter Long Island to help LIRR.

 

I agree, Nassau NIMBYs might opposite city buses entering NICE Bus Territory.

You greatly overestimate the NIMBYs so that arguement is BS fail.
