    They haven't put the bus stops back yet.
  6. Since I live along the B42 and this new L5 route, the route is a very good idea. However, i think every 12-15 minutes would be a better headway compared to 20 minutes. Also, it shouldn't run all day, but at least have later hours.
  7. If I'm correct, the will be local between Broadway Junction and Marcy Avenue, like how it was with the M shutdown.

    They're converting Glenwood Road into a two way street between E 103 and Rockaway Parkway. The westbound lane will be for buses only, so the B6 and B82 will be using that instead of Flatlands.

    Apparently, the reason they're using the green stickers is because the train are being maintained at East 180th/Unionport. I'm not sure how true this is tho.

    Even with the new XN60s coming in, there isn't enough artics to make the Bx36 an articulated line, especially since the Bx6 local is supposed to become fully artic as well. After the B82 goes SBS, they're putting a hold on the SBS program until after the bus redesign
