Having a bus lane taking away a car lane for 12 hours a day on Woodhaven Boulevard will be a driver’s nightmare. There are many, many more cars, vans and trucks than buses on the road. To have that many automobiles have one less lane will cause more congestion and longer travel time, not to mention more air pollution and more gas consumption. I would like to suggest eliminating parking and meters between the hours 7 to 10 a.m. Monday to Friday going north on Woodhaven Boulevard to create the bus lane thereby creating an extra lane, which is more practical for better traffic flow. Then in the afternoon from 4 to 7 p.m., do the same thing in the opposite direction.
