The Q44 is a vital inter-borough transit link, connecting the Bronx and Queens while providing connections to several subway lines and the Long Island Rail Road. The Q44 also connects two thriving commercial neighborhoods in Queens, Flushing and Jamaica. In Queens, local service is provided by the Q20A and Q20B. Together, these three routes carry an average of 42,000 bus riders each weekday.
Select Bus Service (SBS) brings faster and more reliable bus service to the Q44. SBS improves speed and reliability through dedicated bus lanes, off-board fare payment, and transit signal priority (TSP). SBS also improves passenger comfort and convenience through enhanced bus stops that include shelters with seating and lighting.
