Great news from the MTA regarding bus service in Brooklyn! Senator Daniel Squadron announced today that the MTA will create a brand new “Brooklyn Tech Triangle” bus route connecting DUMBO, the Navy Yard, and Downtown Brooklyn. Planning efforts on that route are still to come. The MTA will also create a new bus route along the Williamsburg waterfront, which will be designed in consultation with community stakeholders and begin in mid-2013. Other service changes include the restoration of the B39 bus service over the Williamsburg Bridge, weekend service for the B24 and the B69, and extended service into Red Hook on the B57. (This service will mostly cover the route of the B77, much missed by Red Hook residents.) And of course, the extension of the G train was made permanent. All this good news comes out of MTA’s package of almost $30 million of service increases.
