NYC Road Diet Watch: MTA outlines completely new bus route network for Queens

Holmes stressed throughout the meeting that the MTA wants to start completely from scratch with a “blank slate approach,” for their Queens redesign project — unlike that of their Bronx and Staten Island projects.

“This is a complete and utter re-drawing of the bus network,” Holmes said.

According to an MTA spokesperson, the Bronx and Staten Island projects are a few months ahead in the process and can serve as an example of what Queens’ redesign will look like. The spokesperson added that the Bronx and Staten Island’s projects will differ from what they plan for Queens though, being that their networks weren’t as circuitous.
