From the NY Post:
A confusing mess of bus stops outside a Queens subway station just got a multimillion-dollar makeover that will streamline the commute for straphangers.
The MTA rolled out a new transit hub outside the Myrtle-Wyckoff stop on the L and M lines in Ridgewood that brings the terminals for six bus routes -- the Q55, Q58, B13, B26, B52 and B54 -- together.
"Previously, bus stops for the bus routes were spread out over the area, making transfers confusing and inconvenient for our customers," said Tom Prendergast, the MTA bus and subway chief.
Straphangers have been waiting for the $4.5 million improvement since November 2007.
The new terminal features sidewalk canopies that shield riders from the elements while they transfer to and from the subway.
Other amenities in the rehab include benches and new lighting in the waiting area and new bus-stop signs.
And eventually there will be a signal that alerts riders coming off buses when a subway train is arriving.
