Best and Bad Bus Transfers

Recommended Posts

Between (NYCT) and (MTA) Bus, well as Long Island Bus, what is best transfer and bad transfer?

Good and Bad Transfers

1. At LGA, M60, Q33, Q48, Q72 stop at same stop while Marine Air, Q47 meets M60/Q48. Good.

2. At JFK Terminal, Q3 and B15. Good

M96 to uptown Madison Av. Good.

M106EB or WB to uptown Madison or downtown 5th Av. Good.

3. M4 and M98 Good

4. Bx11, Bx13, Bx35 at 178th St/Broadway.

5. Bx5, QBx1, Bx29.

6. 74th St Bus Terminal with Q19, Q45, Q49, Q33, Q47, Q53 Northbound, but not the Q32 or Q53 Southbound.

7. Q23 Ditmars Blvd/102nd St to M60/Q33/Q72 at US Airway.

8. 74th St Bus Terminal to Q32 Manhattan or Q53 Southbound.

9. Q60, Q101, Q102 at Queensboro Plaza.

10. Williamsburg Washington Bus Plaza, Hempstead Transit Center is good transfer.

11. Jamaica Bus Terminal. From Q3 to MTA Bus Company lane is pain, well as going to catch Q30/Q31.

12. M15 Uptown at 1st Av/57th St NE, Q60 at 60th St/2nd Av NE, Q32 at 60th St/2nd Av NW, Q101 at 2nd Av/57th St, BM express bus pickup at 57th St/2nd Av, M31/M57 at 57th St/2nd Av or 1st Av/60th St is bad transfer.

What is your opinion or fact?

The "best" bus transfer IMO is one where the *other* bus stops at the exact same stop as the one you just got off at....

 

Can't think of any bad ones right now... guess I'll comment on the ones you listed.....

2. At JFK Terminal, Q3 and B15. Good

although you don't cross any streets, I still find that Q3/B15 (to the) Q10 stop cumbersome...

 

7. Q23 Ditmars Blvd/102nd St to M60/Q33/Q72 at US Airway.

lmao... nobody walks from where the Q23 drops you off, inside the US airway terminal... unfortunately, they wait for that slow ass Q48... done it a few times myself ;)

 

8. 74th St Bus Terminal to Q32 Manhattan or Q53 Southbound.

don't see what's so particularly bad about that xfer... the ppl that try to cross roosevelt when buses are making their way into the terminal, deserve to get hit....

 

9. Q60, Q101, Q102 at Queensboro Plaza.

yeh, what was the reason they moved the Q100 stop a few yards in front of the B61 stop (the one on jackson av, after it turns off QB)?...

 

getting from the Q60/Q101 to the Q102 is simple... use the overpass that's formed from the Queensboro Plaza stop to get to the other side of QB....

 

11. Jamaica Bus Terminal. From Q3 to MTA Bus Company lane is pain, well as going to catch Q30/Q31.

sucks if you miss the bus due to all the ppl in the way (especially those waiting for the N6), but the xfers @ 165th I don't mind (even from the Q3 to the Q41 lane, I think that is, towards the very end there).... although I will say the area designated for the MTABus' tends to reek of piss....

 

12. M15 Uptown at 1st Av/57th St NE, Q60 at 60th St/2nd Av NE, Q32 at 60th St/2nd Av NW, Q101 at 2nd Av/57th St, BM express bus pickup at 57th St/2nd Av, M31/M57 at 57th St/2nd Av or 1st Av/60th St is bad transfer.

although it's not a direct xfer, I've also walked from the Q60 terminal, to the M15 on 1st av (NB)... problem is, I still don't know where the nearest M15 stop is in that area... I remember walking as far as 66th st.. there has to be a closer stop than that, from 60th st...
