Expand bus routes

Leave a comment

“Select bus Service coming to LaGuardia” (Melissa Chan, October 18) is great.

History has told us that construction of any major new transportation system expansion projects, such as extending either the subway from Astoria or Long Island Rail Road to LaGuardia Airport would have taken decades with all the feasibility studies, environmental reviews, planning, design, engineering, real estate acquisition, permits, procurements, construction, budgeting, identifying and securing funding and opening day service.

Select Bus Service has already been proven successful on other routes and can be quickly implemented. Why not also include the existing Q48 which provides connections from Flushing, which is also served by the LIRR, No. 7 subway and numerous bus lines to LaGuardia Airport as well?
