The MTA has been focused on making the Bus system an alternative option to the subway for quite some time. Most recently, there was an overhaul of the North-to-South bus lines that run along Woodhaven-Crossbay Blvd’s in Queens.
The Woodhaven/Cross Bay Boulevards corridor was identified as a preferred location for Select Bus Service improvements through the DOT/MTA 2009 Bus Rapid Transit Phase II Study, with extensive input from communities throughout Queens. The corridor is served by several local, limited, and express bus routes carrying over 30,000 people per day. Many travelers use these routes to connect to intersecting subway services in addition to going directly to businesses and schools along the corridor; however, the bus service is not as effective as it could be, as buses can be caught in congestion and the layout of the street makes bus stops difficult to reach for neighborhood residents.
