Updated 12/30/19

For the last few months, we’ve been diligently working to completely redraw the Queens Bus Network to create a faster, more reliable system of interconnected routes. To do this, we wiped the map clean and started from scratch, which means there are a lot of changes proposed in this proposed Draft Plan. Read it carefully, and make sure to review the new routes, see what your commute would be like in the new network, and most importantly, let us know what you think

Read the introduction and next steps, and download the entire Draft Plan here:

I've summarized the proposed lines.

The routes are QT. But that T is only temporary (for planning purposes). Once these are final, then they will became the usual Q.

While it may be a convenience for some to combine two or more shorter routes into a thru route, it also can hurt the reliability .
I have not looked at the entire proposal in depth, but what gets my attention is how they extended my most used route (Q-64), which turns around near my stop into a much longer route...going where I would seldom ever use .

So from a personal standpoint, I don’t like it.

These proposed changes in Queens are pretty dramatic.
By comparison, the recently implemented changes in the Bronx bus network were, in my opinion, far more evolutionary than revolutionary.
I wonder if this is because the Queens bus network has its origins in 5 formerly independent operating companies: NYCTA, GBL, JBL, TCC, QSC.
My sense is impending changes proposed for Brooklyn and Staten Island might be more like the changes made in the Bronx.
