As part of the 2014 budget negotiations, the MTA will get $550,000 specifically to study bus service in Northeastern Queens.
State Senator Tony Avella says the results will show the MTA that the area needs additional service.
The MTA routinely reviews routes and service. Since 2012, the agency reports it as added, enhanced, or restored service to the tune of $40 million across the boroughs.
Also beginning Sunday, April 6, weekend service on the M8 and Q31 will be restored and Sunday service begins on the Q77. These bus service enhancements are part of an estimated $7.9 million slated to be invested throughout the city during this round of restorations.
