Starting this Sunday the MTA is making changes to four Queens bus routes in order to enhance service and help alleviate congestion.
The Q8 route, which runs between Jamaica and Spring Creek, Brooklyn will now end at a new bus terminal at Gateway Center II (Gateway Center North) in Spring Creek.
The Q17 and the Q27 routes will now end at 138th Street between 39th and 37th avenues in Flushing, instead of Main Street between 39th Avenue and Roosevelt Avenue. This change was made at the request of the community to help reduce congestion, according to the MTA.
The Q113 Local will be turned into the Q114 Limited in order to provide faster service to passengers traveling a long distance along Guy R. Brewer Boulevard in south Jamaica and Rochdale Village. The new Q114 route will make limited stops on the Boulevard, then all local stops along Brookville Boulevard and through Woodmere, Cedarhurst, Inwood, Lawrence and Far Rockaway. During overnight hours, it will make all local stops along Guy R. Brewer Boulevard.
No change will be made to the Q113 Limited’s route. It will continue its limited-stop service from Jamaica through Far Rockaway, and the Q111 will continue to make all local stops from Jamaica through Rosedale.
