Last week, our budget-challenged city announced a proposal to kill the Q74 bus, which connects Queens College to Kew Gardens. At the same time, work continues on the Second Avenue subway, scheduled to open in 2013. When the city asks to cut back, I’m daring to dream. (see graphic below)
A Q73 bus would run between Cunningham Park and Kew Gardens, relieving pressure on the Q46 and Q64 buses. If the Upper East Side is getting a new subway line, give something to Queens - give us a Q73!
