@MetroCSW

id have that go straight into Kings Plaza

@Threxx

that would be a good idea if it didnt meander too much(Belt maybe?)

 

The Belt doesn't allow buses. (Except for the small portion w/the B83)

 

The route also serves East Flatbush, and is nonstop along Linden Blvd and Kings Highway between Clarendon/Kings and Pennsylvania/Linen.

Okay i see what your saying,I just thought all those turns would make the route too long(time-wise)and people would be turned off by the extra time(especially compared to the (J)(Z) )

Good news & bad news. M60A is good route... But the bad news is to create M60B. At least M35 have to be discountinued . Let M60B replace M35 that bad news. Say goodbye to M35. welcome M60B to replace M35.

 

What does this M60B have to do with the M35???? It doesn't serve Randall's Island... smh

Not to mention, isn't it either fiendishly difficult or impossible to serve Randall's from a route using the Triboro?

Lots of new buses heading to 72 St on this forum. Not that I disagree, a connection to the subway is always good.

How do you make these on google??????

You have to have Google Account, create a map.

 

Then on at last right button, draw a line, choose draw line along road, which follows directions of cars.

B76: Local service between Coney Island-Stillwell Av and 4 Av/Dean St near Barclays Center in Boerum Hill, via 3 Av, 14 St (southbound), 15 St (northbound), Prospect Park West, and McDonald Av. Bus will complement the current F train running along the Culver Line and operate 24/7.

 

The F train could have an alternate bus service in handy, especially for disabled people, since most stations along the Culver Line aren't ADA accessible. What do you think?

No, as it wouldn't get any ridership over there....

 

Look, Here's the problem...

You're way more focused with running buses nonstop, than you are with trying to establish a justifiable riderbase to the route.

 

No latent demand exists for a Brooklyn to LGA route, and the fact that the BQE is the most direct routing to LGA from the Williamsburg area, is a deterrent in & of itself....

 

Any route running from Brooklyn to LGA would have to resemble the structure of the B15 (meaning, serving multiple riderbases)...

Having the route terminate @ Williamsburg Bridge Plaza & directly to LGA won't cut it.... Running the route from Downtown to Williamsburg locally, then nonstop to LGA won't cut it either.... For a Brooklyn to LGA route to garner enough riders to have it run that frequently, it's gonna have to be some sort of LTD interborough type route (like a Q44)..... And it's gonna have to have a bigger reach in Brooklyn than Williamsburg, coming from the north......

If the BQE won't do for a Brooklyn to LGA route, here's my new proposal:

 

B80: Limited-stop service between LaGuardia Airport, Queens, and Downtown Brooklyn via Jay St, Tillary St, Park Av, Williamsburg St, Rodney St (northbound), Marcy Av (southbound), Meeker Av, Kingsland Av (northbound), Monitor St (southbound), Greenpoint Av, 39 St, Northern Blvd, 49 St (northbound), 48 St (southbound), Astoria Blvd, and 23 Av (northbound). Makes only the following stops:

 

On Jay St:

Fulton Mall

Myrtle Promenade (A)(C)(F)(R)

 

On Park Av:

Vanderbilt Av

 

On Williamsburg St (northbound)/Classon Av (southbound):

Flushing Av

 

On Rodney St (northbound)/Marcy Av (southbound):

Broadway (J)(M)(Z)

Metropolitan Av (G)(L)

 

On Meeker Av:

Lorimer St

Graham Av

Kingsland Av

 

On Kingsland Av (northbound)/Monitor St (southbound):

Nassau Av

 

On Greenpoint Av:

Borden Av

 

On 39 St:

Queens Blvd (7)

Steinway St/Northern Blvd

 

On 49 St (northbound) and 48 St (southbound):

Broadway (M)(R)

30 Av

 

On Astoria Blvd:

78 St

82 St

 

On 23 Av (northbound):

87 St

94 St

 

Then all stops in LaGuardia Airport

 

The B80 will operate from 6AM to midnight every 30 minutes.

Just a little edit: The northbound stop at Broadway will be at 47 St, not 49 St. The bus will also travel northbound along 47 St between Northern Blvd and 31 Av. Edited by lara8710

I was the one who suggested the B83 to the MTA. They initially rejected it, but after studying it for a full three years accepted it. They also thought they couldn’t operate buses on the Belt Pkway until I told them they only needed a permit from DOT. Shortly after I informed them of that requirement, buses started to regularly operate on the Belt Parkway not in service from Ulmer Park to both ends of the B1 route.
