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 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.

Read our official press release announcing the launch of the project.
