Abstract: Starting with some of the known transformation formulas for well-poised $ _2{\phi _1}$ and very-well-poised $ _8{\phi _7}$ basic hypergeometric series we obtain $ q$-analogues of $ 36$ quadratic transformation formulas given in $ \S2.11$ of Higher transcendental functions, Vol. 1, edited by Erdélyi et al. We also derive some new quadratic transformation formulas that give rise to identities connecting very-well-poised but unbalanced $ _{10}{\phi _9}$ series in base $ q$ with very-well-poised and balanced $ _{12}{\phi _{11}}$ series in base $ {q^2}$. A Rogers-Ramanujan type identity is also found as a limiting case.
