On Friday, MTA NYC Transit announced that the Q2 & Q110 have resumed service to Belmont Park for their fall racing season. Details from the press release:
MTA New York City Transit and MTA Bus announce that beginning Saturday, September 10 until Sunday, October 30, the Q2 and Q110 buses will again directly serve Belmont Park Racetrack. On days that the racetrack is open, the buses will discharge, layover and pick up customers at the Belmont bus terminal.
Eastbound (towards Belmont Park), the Q2 and Q110 will follow their regular route to the Cross Island Parkway northbound entrance ramp, then onto the racetrack turnaround via Lane #1. Customers will be discharged at the escalator leading to the LIRR/Racetrack overpass. The buses will continue to the layover area. Westbound (towards Jamaica), the buses will pull up to Lane #3 and pick up customers at the designated Q2 and Q110 bus stops, then continue on their regular routes.
These stops are only in effect when Belmont Park Racetrack is open. There is no racing on Mondays or Tuesdays, with the exception of Monday, October 10 (Columbus Day). In addition, Belmont Park will not be open on Wednesday, October 12.
So, get out ahead of the field and buy your MetroCards in advance and enjoy a day at the races!
