The agency called for slight service increases on the Q13, Q15, Q36, Q38 and Q56 and slight decreases on the Q58, Q76 and Q88.

The changes to peak morning service on weekdays are as follows:


Q13’s headway will go from 6.5 to 6 minutes.

Q15’s headway will go from 6 to 5.5 minutes.

Q36’s headway will go from 8 to 6 minutes. 

Q56’s headway will go from 12 to 8.5 minutes.


Q58’s headway will go from 4.5 to 5 minutes.

Q76’s headway will go from 5 to 6 minutes.

The changes to midday service will change the Q38’s headway from 20 to 15 minutes.

These bus schedule revisions will be presented to the NYC Transit and Bus Committee of the MTA Board  at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 21.
