Elected officials in northeast Queens are calling on the MTA to restore service to the Q75 bus that connects Oakland Gardens to Jamaica.
The route, which was eliminated in 2010, provides a one-seat ride to and from Jamaica’s subways for local residents who lack public transit options.
Some Oakland Gardens residents have to take two buses just to reach a subway station.
“In my district, we have no subway service and rely on MTA buses to get around,” said Councilman Barry Grodenchik. “It’s the MTA’s duty to prioritize restoration in areas where bus service is so critical. More transit options for the people of Eastern Queens need to be funded to ensure our borough continues to progress.”
