Queens lawmaker introduces legislation to create Flushing Bus Depot Task Force


Councilwoman Sandra Ung introduced legislation in the City Council on April 27 that would establish a task force to identify potential locations for the construction of a new bus depot in Flushing. 

Flushing is the busiest bus-to-train transfer hub in the New York City Transit system. Approximately 20 MTA bus routes pass through or begin and end in downtown Flushing, in addition to the NICE buses that service areas of Nassau County. Out-of-service buses park on several different locations in downtown Flushing, either for scheduled layovers for driver breaks and shift changes.
