NYC Transit will be providing additional trips on several train and bus lines as part of regular, ongoing efforts to accommodate changes in ridership and demand. The subway additions, on the A, D, E, and F lines on weekdays mostly during the hours immediately following or preceding rush hours, will go into effect in November. The bus additions, on weekends in Queens, will go into effect in July. The changes will result in shorter wait times and reduced crowding on the lines at certain times.

Bus schedules are regularly reviewed and adjusted based on rider demand and operating conditions such as traffic and compliance with bus lane restrictions. Accordingly, Saturday Q29 frequency will also decrease in the morning period, to reflect light ridership.

Work on a comprehensive, systemwide redesign of the entire bus route network has begun, as noted in the NYC Transit Bus Plan. The first segment of the redesign focuses on Staten Island express buses. The Bronx is the next borough to be studied, as announced by Byford in the MTA Board’s Transit Committee.
