More service on 2 Queens bus lines

From the NY Post:

Manhattan and Queens bus riders will get more weekend service, starting this weekend.

In Queens, the Q31 will also start running on Saturdays and Sundays. It runs between Bayside and Jamaica.

The Q77 will launch Sunday service between 6:55 a.m. and 10:09 p.m. The line runs between Laurelton and Jamaica.

The increase in buses will be funded through money announced last year to increase bus and subway services.

The new services announced last year included more G trains during rush hour, as well as bringing the M to the Lower East Side on weekends.

Finally! The mta was so stupid when it took away both the q76 and the q31 bus away on weekends. A few times I had to go to work on the weekends, but couldn't get to the f train by bus.

When the MTA cut service a few years ago, it saved them less than $100 million per year, but was necessary due to their precarious financial position. Now you have the MTA head Prendergast saying their needs are being met when the governor raids the MTA for another $30 million. Cuomo needs to go if you want more buses and trains.

Will they create a new line to run from the 7 line that will go to the the new police academy ?

Anon No. 3: The Q25 and the Q50 already go by there. What else do you want?

You know what I want. I want Ron Kim to pay attention to the needs of the WHITE community that rides the express buses in the Whitestone part of the district. Ron Kim sits there and panders to the ASIANS in his district in Flushing. When you are persistent and demand that Ron Kim's staff actually do something then you are called rude and you are called out for hurting the feelings of the staff of Ron Kim.
