  1. Once again... Brooklyn Division is treated like stepchildren.. Reductions on Flatbush heaviest lines... Best believe this year. The B41/44/46 will reach the top 10 in ridership if this trend continues. M4 reduction to Bryant Park-41 Street. While I have some opposition about this. However, that M4 ride is pretty long from Fort Tryon to Midtown plus it's not a limited. Hopefully, things do get better for the M4. Now, I gotta see how this works since the SBS is postponed at the earliest- Fall Pick, latest- early 2019-Spring while they get the kinks (B82).

    An unprecedented move: Bus lanes are being installed between Ft Greene Place and Clinton Avenue in both directions on Fulton Street. Construction has begun effective Tuesday 4/17/18-4/20/18 resulting in loss of parking spaces during AM and PM rush hours. Bus lanes to be effective 4/23-Monday.

    SC is taking a page from College Point. Honestly, I don't see anything wrong with having ads on buses. The day I see ads on these newer XD60's. At least a rear ad at the least. Doesn't have to be the entire bus.

    There was one on the B38 a few weeks ago. This could guess one thing. Proterra is doing excellent on the Grand Avenue routes. Juat awaiting the XDE40's to hit these Brooklyn streets. When I saw the MBTA XDE40 this was something that New York City needed either last year 2016/2017 or 2015/2016. Rode on a XDE40 in Boston. Bus is excellent and will do good in New York City.

    How. Wayyaminute???? That doesn't make sense. Is the bus re-numbered or not? That's the question. Obviously 🙄 the bus is already built and enroute to New York City any week now.. Any duplication of #'s from old to new results in bad registration for DMV.

    Try a few buses from each division. However, this new update making these buses look tacky. To me the best signs are the OG's 6490-6689 series.

    Makes no sense with these new sign changes. Also Flatbush has it.

    To look at the perspective of things: I think is good to have that stop added. The Kings Highway to Junction distance is pretty long considering with the Avenue L stop you do have the B9 plus the junior high school in the area so I can see some benefit of adding that stop to the equation.. Sad to say but you can't have a true express style SBS in Brooklyn unless you increase frequencies on the local span. Also, considering the local is NOT frequent since the treats the Brooklyn Division like stepchildren by cutting essential bus services in the areas that it serves with SBS.. Hence, 44 & 46. The 46 is a tragedy at this point.

    If I'm reading this correctly the original plan called for express style SBS from Church to Junction before the Avenue D stop (Southbound) was added before implementation ? Is that correct.. Here's the thing with Avenue R. (I haven't been in Sheepshead Bay in years to really study this). However, Avenue R was a viable stop on the limited after Kings Highway for connection for the B2/B31 and pretty much still is. Similar to what Avenue L is with the B9 connection. I believe the original plan Northbound 44SBS was Avenue U---> Kings Highway-----> Junction thus leaving out Avenue L.. Correct?

    Those 2 stops were added due to community influence. Especially Avenue L. Somehow, the NIMBY's in that area raised HELL to have a stop there. The original SBS44+ plan was supposed to go express from Avenue U ---> Kings Highway ---> Junction in that order. Now by adding the Avenue L stop it adds more to the trip. Recently- Avenue R is another stop that the community wants to have as an SBS stop. However, that got rejected. Slightly offtopic: @checkmatechamp13: How's the Staten Island Division's plan to revamp the express bus network. Hopefully they don't use this SIM idea

    Brooklyn: XDE40's (Grand Avenue currently*) and East New York is possible.
