Do you use the B44 bus line to go to work, school or for any other trip? You should attend the Public Open House on November 15th at Brooklyn College to discuss the design of Brooklyn’s first proposed Bus Rapid Transit line. The BRT line is important in conversations not just about the Flatbush area but about Brooklyn’s transit system itself. It is an exciting development and encouraging step towards upgrading the public transportation system.
Bus Rapid Transit is a cost effective, efficient and easy way to improve speed and reliability of bus service for commuters along major traffic corridors. The New York City Department of Transportation in conjunction with MTA New York City Transit is looking for public input about the design of the Select Bus Service plans on Nostrand and Rogers Ave. The open house allows the public to speak with the project’s staff individually and provides a venue to promote community engagement in the planning process.
