Re: Why Southern Brooklyn Needs Better Bus Service

No, the Bx28/38 was the result of the 2010 service change/cutbacks.

Prior to June, 2010, the Bx28 was the sole route operating between Kingsbridge/192 to Co-Op City via. Gun Hill Road, and looped around COC in counter-clockwise direction to Section 5 (Earhart Lane), not stopping at Bay Plaza. The route was split into two, the Bx 28 now goes straight along Asch Loop and Bartow Ave to Section 5, while the Bx38 follows the same routing as the Bx28 from 205th Street/Bainbridge (very few runs start/end at Kingsbridge/192), where it loops around the former Bx28 but runs into Bay Plaza where it terminates at JC Penney with the Bx12SBS+.

For the next few months after the June 2010 Bx28/38 split, overnight service to Sections 2/3 were fully cut off because the Bx28 continued to run along Asch Loop when the Bx38 stopped running. NYCT realized there was no bus service on the northern end of Co-Op City and decided to allow the old Bx28 loop when the Bx38 stopped running. But it was clearly shortsighted to deny overnight bus service to a large section of a heavily populated area within Co Op City. The Bx23 (old QBx1) stops running after 1:00 AM, while the Bx26 and 30 end their runs earlier.
