Tentative Queens Bus sign codes.

Recommended Posts

This is just something I made in my spare time. This is how it would look if all the Queens local routes were combined. I looked at schedules and based on experience, I added a few and took out a few. Some I modified. I try to be as consistent as possible. This is not official.

FWIW, I would try to do away with as much abbreviations as possible & for that, I have to commend the MTA on.

I strongly disagree with the suggested Q35 display for the Brooklyn end terminal.... I suppose you could do away with mentioning Brooklyn College, but to replace Flatbush av Sta. with Nostrand av? Nah....

I'll even go as far as to say that the B11 should have the same display as the Q35 & the B103 (short turns) at the Junction

Verbiage-wise, I'd leave the Q35 signage for that direction alone....

If it were to be changed however, I could go for [Midwood - Flatbush av. station] over [Midwood - Nostrand av]....

Come to think of it, I'd like to see more of the destination signs (in general) show the subway bullets (a la the Q70)....

I'm just trying to make all the signs as uniform as possible. Subway bullets on the signs...hmmm

Yeah, subway bullets would be especially useful. I'm no expert on riding patterns or anything but the way I see it from experience and observations, a lot of the Queens routes serve as subway feeders (All the CP, QV, CS, and JA routes that feed into Jamaica and Flushing respectively, Q88 & Q38 with the QBL, the numerous LG routes at Queensboro Plaza as, Q67 at HPA, Queensbridge F with the Q69 and Q103, Q104 with the 7 @ 46 Street, etc.) and for the sake of current riders as well as possible attracting future riders, displaying the route bullets would be helpful in alerting people of where exactly the bus is going instead of some vaguer neighborhood name or road... Granted it'd take up space but I feel that the usefulness justifies the loss of sign real estate...
