Reactivate Rockaway Beach line for good of Queens

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has not provided enough buses for commuters. They have ignored our requests for more buses, longer buses, more express buses and 24-hour service for the Q52 and Q53. Some 35,000 Queens commuters have been affected by the loss of the A train. Thousands more have to cope with the overcrowding on buses due to this displacement. We need more regularly scheduled buses, not random, haphazard and inadequate service. Comments (4).
