Queens lawmakers demand MTA include the borough in express bus service expansion

Queens lawmakers are calling on the MTA to expand express bus service in the borough after it was excluded from a recently announced pilot program focused on Brooklyn and Staten Island.  

Seventeen state elected officials collectively penned a letter to MTA Chief Janno Lieber on May 15, calling on his agency to expand service on express buses that take Queens residents to and from Manhattan. Their call comes as congestion pricing is set to go into effect on June 30.
