Updated 1/29/20

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

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

Meet with us and share your feedback! New dates and locations!

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

We will host public workshops to share our proposals with you, get your thoughts on our ideas, hear your suggestions, and answer any questions you may have. See the schedule below to know when we’ll be in your area.

Project Timeline

A graphic timeline that shows the Queens Bus Network Redesign started in April 2019 is projected to finish in May 2020.

Bus Service in Queens

One hundred and seven local, limited, SBS, and express routes 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.
