Senate Deputy Leader Gianaris Lays Out Priorities For Proposed Queens Bus Network Redesign

ASTORIA, N.Y. – Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris sent a letter to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) calling on the agency to focus on three main issues presented by their proposed Queens Bus Network redesign: accessibility problems, difficult transfers, and lack of access to cultural institutions.

“Queens riders depend on the reliability and accessibility of our buses to get around. Redesigning the system cannot be a code for cuts and greater inconvenience to thousands of riders,” said Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris. “I urge the MTA to work on these major issues and help improve buses for everyone in our neighborhoods.”
