MTA to give Rockaways and Orchard Beach beachgoers better shuttle service, more buses

The MTA is boosting shuttle service to the Rockaways this summer — so that waves of beachgoers can take the train to swim and surf.

 

Rockaway Park shuttle trains will be extended north to the Rockaway Blvd. station on the A line on weekends from June 12 through at least Labor Day. The extra service will run from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

That means all A riders — not just those on a Far Rockaway-bound train — will be able to transfer to the shuttle, cutting down on travel times.

 

Meanwhile, beachgoers who take the Q35 bus from Flatbush will also see extra service starting July 3. The MTA will add 35 trips to the route’s Saturday and Sunday schedule, with buses running every seven and a half minutes instead of every 10 minutes.

 

In the Bronx, the Bx12 local route will run to Orchard Beach from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. beginning Saturday.
