The MTA is conducting a series of virtual public workshops for residents to give their input on the Queens Bus Network Redesign, one of the largest bus network redesigns in the country.

According to the agency, the new draft plan will focus on routing, bus stop locations and frequency proposals that will take into consideration population growth, travel patterns, commute times and off-peak ridership.

From Monday, April 18, to Thursday, June 2, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., riders will get to share their questions, comments and concerns on Zoom workshops in each of the 14 Queens community boards.

Workshops will be in English with captioning in other languages. There will also be additional language interpreters available upon advance registration, no later than five business days before the workshop.

“These public workshops are a chance for Queens bus riders to learn more about our ambitious plan to speed up bus service and deliver a better bus network for the borough,” said MTA Bus Company President Acting President and New York City Transit Department of Buses Senior Vice President Frank Annicaro. “We are excited to reach this critical next step in the bus redesign process and encourage New Yorkers to attend these workshops and share their input with the MTA.”
