“This plan was designed to include the least amount of folks as possible,” City Councilman I. Daneek Miller said. “The forums were held simply as informational instead of tables and they asked for ideas. Well, if you’re just a bus rider and don’t understand the nuances and planning and headways that go into it, then your ideas are just ideas.”
“We’re not opposed to an improved bus network, connectivity and transportation equity, absolutely not. Certainly, this is an opportunity to fix the system that is old, that is antiquated, and suppresses Queens and makes it an outer borough. We want a system that connects us, that is safe, efficient and moves the people to and from in a matter that they deserve, and so, they haven’t done that,” Miller added.
