Bus riders know first-hand: Woodhaven and Cross Bay Boulevards need fixing. This major corridor claims the highest number of pedestrian fatalities in all of Queens every year. And it’s congested: for the 30,000 bus riders who ride along this corridor every day, it can mean extreme commutes of up to 2 hours sitting on the bus in traffic.
That’s why bus riders are fighting for Bus Rapid Transit on Woodhaven and Cross Bay Boulevard. The DOT recently unveiled it’s design proposals for how to fix Woodhaven Blvd with many of the improvements we have been fighting for–like median bus-lanes, off-board fare collection, and wider walkways for pedestrians.
But there’s still a lot more work ahead. Bus riders and allies in our BRT for NYC coalition created a video to show why local residents need these improvements on Woodhaven Boulevard. Please watch our video and share it with family and friends! Use our hashtag: #fixwoodhaven to help spread the word.
