A Glendale resident voiced her concern about the MTA’s proposed Brooklyn Bus Redesign that would impact the B13 route that runs through Queens during last week’s Community Board 5 (CB 5) meeting at Christ the King High School in Middle Village.
During the meeting, a letter from Glendale resident Deloris Bachmann was read in which she stated that the proposed changes along the B13 line would make it harder for her and other senior citizens who use that line to go anywhere.
“This is a hardship for the many senior citizens and handicapped people who live in my neighborhood, not to mention an inconvenience in bad weather,” Bachmann said in the letter. “Without reliable bus service, how will be able to shop, visit doctors, go to Wyckoff Heights [Medical Center], visit friends, go to church or the library?”
The MTA revealed their Brooklyn Bus Network Redesign back in December that proposed the B13 reroute to the Ridgewood Reservoir and Cypress Avenue, which would eliminate stops along Cooper Avenue, Fresh Road Pond Road and Gates Avenue.
“Queens is already a transit desert — why create another?” Bachmann said in her letter. “This plan may look good on paper, but the MTA has not considered the welfare of those who live along that line.”
CB 5 has reached out to the MTA in the past regarding the MTA
Brooklyn Bus Network Redesign and getting reliable bus service to
the Ridgewood Reservoir. In their letter to the MTA, CB 5 stated that the residents will be
negatively affected by the proposed changes.
“The currently proposed B13 Bus route change is very likely to negatively affect bus riders in parts of Ridgewood and Glendale, Queens, who would, if the plan is adopted, lose helpful transit links to areas north and south of where they live,” the letter read.
CB 5 District Manager Gary Giordano told QNS that MTA needs to find a solution that would benefit both parties.
“They gotta find a way,” Giordano said.
I don’t feel any sympathy for these people. They vote for TrumpTurds and other right wingers who want to get rid of all public transportation, and still they expected a public bus on their doorstep. Fuck them. Can’t wait till TrumpTurd steals the next election and guts Medicare, social security and public transportation .
TrumpTurd Holden is such a hypocrite too. Trying to get what he can from a socialist system and then backing fascist politicians like TrumpTurd and that doofus from Long Island who failed miserably against Hochul.
If u don’t like socialism, don’t take a bus, don’t look for Medicare or SOCIAL security. Don’t expect a government to build hospitals, provide clean water or infrastructure. Don’t expect government to protect your bank deposits.
Don’t take advantage of free car storage on the streets.
Send your kids to private school, not taxpayer subsidized Catholic or charter schools.
If you can’t manage that much, then you are still a Socialist, like it or not.
The MTA along with DOT give zero fucks about what constituents/users feel. What works on Buffalo has to work in NYC because we're (Buffalo) the future, like it or not we don't care....
"Shut Up!" the MTA explained.
"Now give us more money!"
@Kitara said... Take it easy you sound kraZy
I think Kitara said...drank the water at Camp Lejune.
How's that socialist paradise coming along ?
MTA = Money Taking Agency !
Why can't they drive a pickup truck like a real Merican. Obviously, these whiners are communists.
The Mayor wants this city to be a "Place of God"
I wonder what will happen if the Sheeple refuse?
Maybe this kind of stuff ...
The Lord said, "If you will not obey my commands, you will be punished. If you refuse to obey my laws and commands and break the covenant I have made with you, I will punish you. I will bring disaster on you—incurable diseases and fevers that will make you blind and cause your life to waste away. You will plant your crops, but it will do you no good, because your enemies will conquer you and eat what you have grown. I will turn against you, so that you will be defeated, and those who hate you will rule over you; you will be so terrified that you will run when no one is chasing you."
Well, this one sounds a bit too nasty and evil for me. Can't we have a nicer God?
Not to mention the voters in NYC are the most apathetic and poorly informed of them all.
Maybe Chicago went from woke to wake up, hopefully many other cities will follow suit and this country can get back on track.
Damn…racism, sexism…probably not… how about incompetence.
Woke is broke? No way!
These days make me long for the days of Richard Nixon that’s how bad we have fallen !
But, of course! Cut out all the Republican districts! They hate transit and don't want any bus stops near THEIR houses. "YIMBY to the left, NIMBY to the right. Transit is BLight."
I'm taking the Bus to Florida soon and not coming back...
Buses are for communists.
I drive my Ford F350 wherever I want. Who cares about old dudes.
The MTA is run bad top to bottom and will suck the tax papers dry.
I remember an old saying "The right person for the right job." These days, wokeism beats out the right person.
Total incompetence !
Can we blame trump ? - Can we blame Biden ? Pick one or both....
Fun Fact: President Biden wears green diapers on St Patrick's day only.
Here in the great swamp of Florida, “Bus” may be added to the list of words that we cannot say.
You’re so lucky in NY.
Beware the Ides of March....
"Privatize the buses", say the Trumpanzees.
See how many "for profit" buses will go to these less populated parts of Queens. See how many will operate outside rush hour. See how many will accept $2.75 for a trip around the locality, or stop @ every second block like the ones we have now.
None, I'm sure.
America is finally reaping the ill-guided socialist agenda Wokies helped seed over the past 2-3 decades.
Good job Woke Supremacist Extremists.
The MTA organization is mismanaged, top heavy with upper level management personnel who are nothing more than empty suit political hacks. The rank and file workers who know how to play the game, use union rules to their advantage, padding their overtime while not actually working.
Ah, NYC, the shining example of how to totally destroy what once was great.
Thirty years ago I suggested some route changes to our assemblyman.
So the head of the MTA writes back with excuses why not, closing
the letter with essentially "If you want us to listen, vote more money".
So, guess what, thirty years later, all the route changes are in.
The only reason I'll get on a bus, is to save dear leader from being thrown behind bars.
You shouldn't sugar-coat things, Kitara Let us know how you really feel.
They have gone full TDS never go full TDS!
Careful, some in the Q crowd think Trump via his uncle and Tesla is indeed a time traveler lol
I’m waiting to hear about BlueballsAnon...
@"Ah, NYC, the shining example of how to totally destroy what once was great."
Very true. New York was once a beautiful place full of forests, lakes and streams. Then Henry Hudson came along and began hundreds of years of rot and destruction.
@"America is finally reaping the ill-guided socialist agenda Wokies helped seed over the past 2-3 decades."
Only in the past 2 to 3 decades?? Socialism started long before that here in the good ole USA.
Look at the Unions, Fire Department, FDIC, Social Security, Unemployment Benefits, Medicare, Medicare, Free car storage, roads, street lighting, public transportation, public schools, state owned hospitals, bank bailouts, handout to the oil and gas industries, utilities, water supply and our favorite, the department of sanitation.
All these Socialist institutions will be the downfall of this great nation?
@"I'm taking the Bus to Florida soon and not coming back..."
Taking a bus? A real 'Merican' would drive. Get your ass outta here, commie!
Blame the corrupt politicians all you want but at the end of the day, you have to realize that those corrupt politicians were elected. New Yorkers are to blame for their problems, the politicians they elected are only doing what the voters supported them for. You voted for them, enjoy!
