Queens Bus Network Redesign

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

One hundred and seven local, limited, SBS, and express routes move over 714,000 weekday riders in Queens. Many of those routes follow old trolley routes, and no longer reflect the travel needs of residents. Major commercial, residential, and institutional developments have changed the dynamics of the borough, affecting where residents go and how they get around.

Buses in the borough average 8.9 miles per hour. As congestion has worsened, buses have slowed, making service more unreliable. By redesigning the bus network, we can deliver more frequent, reliable service that satisfies the needs of the borough.

How to Get Involved

Public input is crucial to the development of this new network. We want to hear from you. Use this link to share your thoughts, questions or concerns about your experience with the Queens bus network, and any ideas or suggestions you may have.

Join us at one of our Open Houses scheduled in May and June. This is the first step in a series of opportunities for you to learn more about the bus network redesign process and provide input to help us create a better Queens bus network.

These Open Houses have a rolling start, so you can arrive at any time and still get the full interactive experience.
