RIRA Rep, RIOC Transportation Manager And MTA Bus Planners Work Together To Get New Q102 Bus Stop Near Youth Center and Manhattan Park Bus Stop Sign Replaced
Image of 40 River Road Q 102 Bus Stop Sign Now In Place
Reported January 4 on a meeting between Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Common Council Member for Roosevelt Landings Romano Reid, MTA Bus Company Transportation Planners and Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Transportation Manager Cy Opperman:
... During this meeting, Mr. Reid persuaded the MTA planners to add a Q 102 Bus Stop at 502 Main Street by the Youth Center.As of last week the new Q 102 bus stop is now in place by the Youth Center
The new Q102 Bus Stop should be operating in approximately 6-8 weeks.
Another issue addressed during the meeting with the MTA Transportation Planners was the Q102 Bus not always stopping at 40 River Road.
The reason some bus drivers are not stopping at 40 River Road is because the bus sign had been removed and not replaced. Mr. Reid and I were told at today's meeting that the 40 River Road Bus Sign will be replaced and the Q102 will soon be making regular stops by 40 River Road....
New Roosevelt Island Q 102 Bus Stop
and this weekend I spotted the 40 River Road Q102 Bus Stop Sign in place.
RIRA Manhattan Park Common Council Member Mark Lyon tweeted:
The Q102 sign has been returned to @rooseveltisland 40 River Road stop. Thanks @mtainsider and @nyc_dot ! twitter.com/markhlyon/stat…

Now, there is no reason for the Q 102 bus drivers to not stop near 40 River Road.
