Need Mass Transit

Need Mass Transit

Dear Editor;

I may have missed a critical issue of the Wave regarding the shared use of subway tracks to a reopened LIRR connection in order to allow a much speedier arrival in mid-Queens as well as in Manhattan. If the idea was ditched, who did it? That connection would truly be a benefit for Rockaway residents. Now, with another Arverne Project and some "10,000" more residents on the horizon, we need Mass Transit to improve service in a significant manner for our steadily growing population. A ferryboat makes a fine resort picture but is definitely not the answer for the Rockaways, either in load capacity or in fares. We need bigger ideas and more push. Technical problems have been known to diminish when the voter population increases and creates pressure on bread and butter issues.
