Priority Corridors

Woodhaven / Cross Bay Boulevards

Connecting LaGuardia Airport to Far Rockaway, and everywhere in between.

This corridor has strong potential for full-featured BRT over the entire length of Woodhaven and Cross Bay Boulevards, and on most of the Rockaway Peninsula. These streets have six to eight traffic lanes separated by center medians, in addition to side medians in parts of Woodhaven.

BRT would give riders approximately a 30% improvement in travel time along this corridor.

Hunts Point / Flushing / Jamaica

Improving quality of life for Bronx and Queens families.

This corridor connects Bronx and Queens communities that include dense residential areas, vital job centers, and institutions not served by the subway system. Workers in Hunts Point, shoppers on Flushing Main Street, and Queens College students overwhelmingly use transit. Both the Bronx and Queens portions of this corridor have gained residents and jobs during the past decade, but the lack of transit access threatens their continued growth.

BRT would serve the residents of 8,207 public housing units in six Bronx and four Queens developments, most of which are nearly a mile from the closest subway.

Bush Terminal / JFK

Giving the thousands of workers and residents in the hospital cluster the transit they deserve.

This corridor contains five major hospitals and numerous primary care facilities and medical practices, directly employing over 20,000 workers and serving hundreds of thousands of residents – including over 7,800 public housing residents in Brownsville and East New York developments that are now isolated from subway lines.

BRT would provide a circumferential connection between subway lines that run north-south through the area, enabling more efficient trips to destinations within and beyond the corridor.

BRT would give riders approximately a 62% improvement in travel time along this corridor.
