The Brooklyn Queens Connector (BQX) is a proposed state-of-the-art streetcar envisioned to link the rapidly growing and evolving waterfront communities from Brooklyn to Queens. BQX’s modern and fully accessible vehicles will run along a largely exclusive right-of-way and have signal priority at intersections, giving passengers a comfortable ride as they by-pass on-street vehicle traffic.  

By the Numbers

400K

New Yorkers will be connected by the BQX when it's fully built-out.

At full build-out, BQX will connect over 400,000 New Yorkers—including 40,000 New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) residents, many of whom live more than half-mile from a subway—to emerging employment hubs along the corridor.
