Updated 3/18/20

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

You can download the entire Draft Plan here.

Why this is important

We rely on 107 local, limited, SBS, and express routes to move over 714,000 weekday riders in Queens. Many of those routes follow travel patterns that no longer reflect the needs of riders. As congestion has worsened, buses have slowed, making service more unreliable.

Major commercial, residential, and institutional developments have changed the dynamics of the borough, affecting where residents go and how they get around. By redesigning the bus network, we can deliver more frequent, reliable service that satisfies the needs of the borough.

Share your feedback with us in person

Public input is crucial to the development of this new network. We want to hear from you.

Your safety and the safety of our employees is our top priority. We are monitoring the novel coronavirus outbreak and postponed our March 12 and April workshops, marked with an asterisk below. We are committed to rescheduling at a later date to hear your feedback before issuing the Proposed Final Plan.

We will keep this page updated as event information changes.
