Queens bus network redesign workshop in Flushing

The MTA is redesigning the entire bus network in Queens, and they want the public to chime in on the changes.

Specifically, the redesign will result in fewer turns, fewer bus miles and better, more direct connections to subways.

There will be longer distances between bus stops and straighter paths for each route.

You can see examples of the changes in the map above for northeast Queens, a transit-starved area that relies heavily on buses to get around.

The new routes will run along highly-used thoroughfares like Northern Boulevard, Francis Lewis Boulevard and Horace Harding Expressway. Most of the routes run east-west, but a few will go north-south, connecting to southeast Queens.

To get a better sense of how your current bus line will be rerouted, check out the MTA’s route profiles here.

As part of their effort to solicit feedback from the public, the MTA is hosting a series of public workshops with tabletop maps for attendees to pinpoint their routes.

Flushing Library will host a workshop tonight from 6 to 8 p.m.

If you’re a regular bus rider and your commute will be changed by the redesign, be sure to attend the workshop to give your feedback on the proposed routes.

    Thank you for letting us know about this renovation and massive change to be done. It is good to know about the new initiative. And the workshops organized for better knowledge about these reroutes are very thoughtful to help the public with confusion. Making the life of people easy is witnessed in these changes.
