Dear Editor:

Can We the People and the decision makers consider a fast bus route that will go from Rockaway to LaGuardia Airport without a bus transfer, stopping at major bus and train connections and another fast bus from Rockaway to Flushing to Fort Totten, Bayside without a bus transfer?

The trip from Fort Totten takes approximately two and a half hours to Fort Tilden in Rockaway and many times it takes longer. The trip consists of taking the Q13 bus from Fort Totten to the 7 train, to the Q53 bus, to the Q22 bus to Fort Tilden. This long trip hurts Queens businesses and personal opportunities.

Queens would benefit greatly if we could connect these communities for mutual support, more opportunities and faster transportation. The long closure of the Queens Rockaway Beach Line is a perfect example of a lack of mutual community support and separation.

Faster transportation is one of the keys to improving our quality of life. We isolate ourselves to our own detriment.
