The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will begin two new bus routes on Sunday that will serve portions of Queens.

The Q70/33 route is aimed at improving local service between the Woodside-61st Street Long Island Rail Road station and LaGuardia Airport while simultaneously speeding up service for travelers between the two transportation hubs. The B32 will run between Long Island City and Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

A statement issued by the LIRR said the new Q70 Limited will run 24 hours a day, and is designed to get passengers between the train station and the airport in 12 minutes; and from Manhattan to the airport in as little at 35

It will run along the Q33 route and serve all LaGuardia terminals now served by that line, while the Q33 will now stop outside the airport at 95th Street and Ditmars Boulevard before returning.

The Q70 will not serve LaGuardia’s Marine Air Terminal, which will continue to be served by the Q47.

Both the new Q70 and the amended Q33 will have schedules adjusted for peak, off-peak and overnight hours.

Long Island City will be the northern terminus for the new B32, which also starts Sunday and runs between the E and M subway station at Court Square-23rd Street in Long Island City and Williamsburg Bridge Plaza In Brooklyn.

It will operate seven days per week between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m.

    It would be helpful if you would include a map of the new Q33 route, since the description of the changes does not include the entire route. It used to run along 81st Street from Roosevelt Avenue to Astoria Blvd, where it entered LaGuardia Airport. Now it terminates [turns around to go back] at 95th Street and Astoria Blvd. How does it get there ? Will it still stop at 81st St. and Astoria Blvd [82nd St. and Astoria Blvd on the way back] ? That is where I used to transfer to the bus to 125th St. in Manhattan, that runs over the Triborough Bridge. Would I now have to take a third bus between 95th Street and 82nd Street along Astoria Blvd to accomplish this trip, making it a two-fare trip ? Is there even a bus that goes along Astoria Blvd from the low 80s to 95th Street ?
