Q102 Roosevelt Island Bus Route Confusion Ends - MTA Institutes Single Direction Bus Route & Elimates Some Stops

You Tube Video Of Q102 arriving on Roosevelt Island

The Q102 Roosevelt Island Bus service route has always been confusing. When the bus was approaching Motorgate Plaza, some were never quite sure whether the Bus would travel either north or south towards Coler or Goldwater Hospitals on Main Street.

The MTA has decided to change the Roosevelt Island Q102 route to make it consistent. I received the following advisory from RIOC regarding Q102 bus route change as well as elimination of several bus stops.


In order to provide more consistent and uniform service on Roosevelt Island, all Q102 service will travel through Roosevelt Island in the same direction.

Upon entering the island at the Roosevelt Island Bridge, all buses will first travel north on Main Street to Coler Hospital, then south to Goldwater Hospital, and then exit the island at the bridge.

In addition, the following closely-spaced bus stops on the island will be discontinued: (1) 568 Main St, (2) 579 Main St, (3) P.S./I.S. 270, and (4) The Octagon on Northbound Main St. Please use a nearby alternate bus stop.

All service in Long Island City and Astoria will remain unchanged.
Here is the The MTA Q102 bus service change route announcement for Roosevelt Island. The MTA Q102 Bus Schedule effective Fall 2009 is here but does not reflect the recently announced service change.

That's too bad. I wish the MTA, in its wisdom had decided to eliminate one of the very two closely spaced stops on the east side of Main St. and moved it opposite to the entrance of 625 Main St., but that would have been too obvious and practical.

It certainly is a shame the PS/IS 270 and 579 Main Street stops were discontinued.
