MTA Bus Extends Q21 Route To Queens Boulevard
Effective August 31, the northern terminus of the Q21 has extended its route to Elmhurst (Woodhaven Boulevard RVG subway station) to provide direct local bus service between Rockaway Park, Lindenwood, and the entire Cross Bay Boulevard/ Woodhaven Boulevard corridor.
The extended Q21 merges with the Q11, using the same travel path, and stopping at all of the same local bus stops as the Q11 between Pitkin Avenue in Ozone Park, and Elmhurst. Current Q11 customers may use either the Q11 or Q21 between Ozone Park and Elmhurst. New combined Q11/ Q21 public timetables will be issued (dated fall 2008) to replace the currently separate timetables.
Most of the current Q21 bus stops remain unchanged, with the following exceptions: (1) the current southbound bus stop on Cross Bay Boulevard at Liberty Avenue was relocated to the north side of Liberty Avenue at the current Q11, Q53 and QM15 bus stop. (2) the recently established last and first stops in Ozone Park at Liberty Avenue and Rockaway Boulevard were discontinued to allow the Q21 to remain on Cross Bay Boulevard. Use the bus stops on Cross Bay Boulevard at Liberty Avenue instead.
Q21 service operates every 30 minutes. Toward Elmhurst the Q21 will operate from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Toward Rockaway Park the Q21 will operate from 6:30 a.m. to 9:40 p.m. on weekdays, and 7:10 a.m. to 9:40 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
