Queens Bus Network Redesign: Route Profiles

For languages other than English, use the Google Translate tool at the bottom of this page. 

As part of the Queens Bus Network Redesign New Draft Plan, we have created profiles for each of the proposed bus routes. In the route profiles, you can review the following information: 

  • A detailed description of the proposed routing changes.
  • Proposed route improvements
  • Route destinations and length
  • Proposed versus existing average stop spacing
  • Proposed versus existing service frequency and span (note that more detailed frequencies will be provided as part of the Proposed Final Plan, after receiving comments on this plan)
  • Proposed subway, bus, and rail connections
  • What route(s) currently serve the area
  • A map of the proposed route, showing exactly where proposed service is added or discontinued, along with callout boxes explaining which routes would replace discontinued segments
  • A stop list showing which stops the proposed route would serve and which are proposed to be removed

Each profile lists which existing routes the proposed route is associated with. For example, the route profile for the proposed Q1 states that its service areas are currently served by the Q1 and Q6 in the existing network.

Some of the current routes have been replaced with new routes, but much of the same areas are still covered. So even if an existing route doesn’t appear in the proposed plan, that doesn’t mean that service is gone. It might just be called something else and look a little different.

You can also check out our Route Conversion List, which provides an overview of how bus routes are related. You can then look at individual route profiles to learn more.
