Q70 is free ALL Thanksgiving week

It should be free at all times. I'd guess that 95% of riders transfer to the subway anyway, so they'd pay the fare there.

Agree. Even if they tripled Q70 service all day, it would still be cheaper than designing, building, and operating the AirTrain.

IIRC Bloomberg had that plan to make the crosstowns free for the same reason, but the MTA's bean counters balked at the (mostly paper) loss.

They should’ve made the Q70 free in the beginning. Doing so would’ve generated more money for the (MTA) than they do with the route now.
