B104- Flatbush Junction to Avenue I station (via Avenue I)

Aside from the fact that the B11 already connects those two points, it falls to one of the same culprits as a bus heading west from there via Avenue H, which is the Brighton Line.

B23- Canarsie, Rockaway Pkwy - Kings Plaza Terminal

That would have to go one of two ways, neither of which are good. Moreover, Kings Plaza is nowhere near as important as some make it out to be (it's primarily a convenient turning point while making sure Flatbush Avenue has anything remotely resembling decent coverage, though there are still some who go there).

Oh sorry, I forgot that the B11, went into Midwood from the junction. I do agree with you on the B23, thanks for letting me know

M17: 125th Street/Park Avenue-South Ferry (Possibly seek limited if ridership warranted)

Via Park Avenue, 14th Street, 3rd Avenue, Bowery, Houston Street, West Street, Battery Place, then South Ferry Terminal.

You could say, a randomly made line. 

Park Avenue, in my eyes, should have a bus line however. South of 14th Street, is a doozy.

It spans the whole of Broadway. It starts at the Metro-North station continues with many stops all the way to Isham/207th Streets where it goes on the Henry Hudson Parkway to West 79th Street where it makes many stops on Broadway terminating at the Canal Street station.

 

Major stops:

Tarrytown Metro-North Station (Terminus)

Yonkers Metro-North/Amtrak Station

Broadway-242nd Street (1)

Isham/207th Streets (A)

West 79th Street

42nd Street (1/2/3/7/A/C/E/N/Q/R/W/Shuttle to Grand Central opens 2022)

Canal Street (6/J/N/Q/R/W) 

Wall/Broad Streets (4/5) (J & Z at Broad Street)

(During peak rush hours) 
 

Whitehall Street (1/R/W) (4&5 at Bowling Green)

 

Somebody else can make the Bee-Line equivalent.

The :bus_bullet_bxm1: does not run to Downtown. Also, it starts in Riverdale, and goes via the West Side. It's a replacement to the :bus_bullet_bxm18:.

The Bx18 has been in danger multiple times so here is my plan to eliminate the Bx18

 

The new :bus_bullet_bx40::bus_bullet_bx42:

:bus_bullet_bx40: Parkchester-177th Street (6) to 170th Street/Grand Concourse <B>(D) via 180th Street, Burnside Avenue, Undercliff/Shakespeare Avenues, and 170th Street

Major Stops include: 

Parkchester-177 Street Station (Terminus) (Bx4/A, Bx11, Bx39, Bx42, BxM6)

180/3rd Ave (Bx15)

Burnside/Jerome Avenues (Bx32, (4))

Riverbank Towers (Bx42, Metro-North)

170/Jerome Ave (4)

170/Grand Concourse <B>(D)

:bus_bullet_bx42: Riverbank Towers to Throgs Neck (a semi-loop between the :bus_bullet_bx42: stops in Throgs Neck and the :bus_bullet_bx40: stops in Throgs Neck and adding distant in between the :bus_bullet_bx42: and :bus_bullet_bx40:stops in the Throgs Neck)

It's ok! Thoughts on my BxM15?

This would give Riverdale, Spuyten Duyvil, and Inwood residents access to Midtown and Lower Manhattan, consoling the MTA wants to streamline the BxM1 through the Major Deegan in both directions, and the BxM2 through the Henry Hudson without stopping in Inwood.

Uh...it's your route but..

 

It seems like you're the only one that wants to eliminate short lines cause their short, and you haven't seen people on it.

 

If you really wanna make do with the Bx18, how about this:

Bx18: RPT-Castle Hill Point

Via Claremont, Home/Freeman, Westchester, Bronx River, Watson, White Plains, Bruckner, and Zerega Avenue.
