Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer Urges the MTA to Increase Q103 Bus Service
According to a press release issued by his office, on April 24th Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer urged the MTA to increase service along the Q103 bus route.
“I strongly urge the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to institute a plan that would increase service along the Q103 Bus line in Western Queens,” said New York City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer. “Currently there is no connection for local residents who need to travel between Astoria and Long Island City on the weekends and evenings.
New developments along the waterfront as well as a growing number of cultural organizations are continuing to sprout along the Q103 route. As Chair of the New York City Council’s Cultural Affairs Committee and the local elected official who represents neighborhoods along the Q103 route as well as many of the cultural organizations here in Western Queens, I believe it is important that we institute weekend service and extend weekday operating hours. The expansion of service will allow our cultural organizations the ability to draw in more traffic to their venues and will give local residents additional transportation options as Western Queens continues to struggle with consecutive service disruptions on the 7, G, N, Q and R Trains.”
