Routes to LGA to run express

From the NY Post:

The city announced today it will add three high speed bus routes to LaGuardia Airport starting next year that could save as much 40 minutes in travel time, officials said.

The proposed routes - which will have dedicated travel lanes in high traffic areas - will run from the Bronx, Manhattan and Queens.

They are the M60 Select Bus Service that runs along 125th Street in Manhattan, a new route from Woodside and Jackson Heights, Queens via the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, and a proposed Select Bus Service route from Webster Avenue in The Bronx.

Like the popular SBS routes deployed in other parts of the city, the buses will have passengers pay prior to boarding to speed things along and have technology installed to switch traffic signals from red to green.

M60 takes forever to show up

And once you get to LGA,
you'll be stuck there forever before you go
through all the red tape...terminal security...
and finally be onboard the aircraft.

It does. That's why it's part of this plan!

It's strange the would designate both bus routes BQE & 81st Street as "Q33". They should have different numbers. When this starts running, they should have a traffic agent at 61 St & Roosevelt during rush hours.

No it isn't. The BQE route (yet to be numbered) is a separate route.
