EXPERIENCING TRANSPORTATION BURNOUT ???
Tired of the substandard transportation we are constrained to endure ??
Limited options …. Long Travel times ….. Dangerous, Overcrowded, Unreliable Buses and Trains.
YOU CAN HELP MAKE CHANGE !!
WE MUST ACT NOW, OR THE ROCKAWAY BEACH LINE MAY BE DESTROYED … AND ITS BENEFITS LOST FOR GOOD!
Since Hurricane Sandy, a group of New Yorkers, with support from some Forest Hills residents (who unlike Rockaway residents, enjoy fast LIRR service to midtown Manhattan) have convinced Governor Cuomo to fund a study into building a “Queensway” biking/walking trail on the Rockaway Beach Rail route.
The “Queensway” would subvert any chance to restore the RBL and with it, any benefits of economic opportunity, cleaner environment, and reduced traffic congestion, that would benefit many more people.
Meanwhile, other transit advocacy groups have joined with State Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder, Congressmen Gregory Meeks and Hakeem Jeffries to call for the reactivation of the Rockaway Beach Rail line.
