Route to Simplicity

We Get Email


 Dear Editor:

I can't understand what people are complaining about with the revised bus routes. This is obviously part of the MTA's plan to improve subway service. Under this plan:

1) All "C" trains will go to Lefferts Boulevard 2) All "A" trains will go to Far Rockaway; 3) The new "Z" trains will run from Rockaway Park past Aqueduct and onward north on the QueensRail's (the old Rockaway Beach Branch) tracks, turning west at the LIRR White Pot Junction and running on the LIRR tracks express to the 53rd Street tunnel, where they will switch back to the subway tracks in Manhattan. This will provide a 45-minute trip between Rockaway and midtown; 4) The new "H" train will run between Far Rockaway and Beach 116th  Street every 20 minutes.

The "Z" train, which will run parallel to Woodhaven Boulevard, but four to five blocks east of it will eliminate the need for the Q52/Q53. The "H" train will eliminate the need for the Q22. It's all quite simple. The "A" and "Z" trains will have 11 cars to reduce overcrowding while the "H" train will only have four cars.

Come to the meeting that Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato has arranged in February and ask NYCT President Andy Byford when he will implement these plans.
