Great news commuters! State Senator Daniel Squadron has announced that the MTA will make a brand new Brooklyn Tech Triangle bus route. The MTA will also establish a new bus route along the Williamsburg waterfront, which will be designed in consultation with community stakeholders and begin in mid-2013. Senator Squadron and the Brooklyn Tech Triangle coalition have been working with the MTA to advocate for these new routes, and for the restoration of services that were cut in 2010.
"New Yorkers depend on the access bus and subway service provides every day of the week. These restorations and new routes will connect more neighborhoods for more New Yorkers more often," said Senator Squadron. "From Williamsburg to Red Hook and from the Lower East Side to Battery Park City, we've been pushing with the community for these restorations because they are, simply, essential. Brooklyn's tech industry is changing the face of New York -- and now, we'll have a bus route that will allow the booming Tech Triangle to continue to grow and innovate. Thank you to the MTA for its responsiveness and willingness to increase and restore service even in the face of significant budget constraints."
Other service changes include B24 weekend service, M21 weekend service, B69 weekend service, and B57 service extended into Red Hook.
