COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS, RESIDENTS TO CALL ON MTA TO RESTORE LIMITED BUS STOPS ON THE B44 LINE
Removal of Stop, Part of MTA's New Select Bus Service, Has Disadvantaged Local Residents, Caused Significant Transit Time Increase for Working Class Commuters
BROOKLYN, NY- Council Member Jumaane D. Williams (D-Brooklyn) will join community members in calling on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to reverse its elimination of the limited bus stop on the B44 bus line. As part of its implementation of Select Bus Service (SBS), the MTA has eliminated several critical stops on the B44 line, which now travels directly from Nostrand Avenue and Avenue H, to Nostrand Avenue and Kings Highway, leaving a sizeable portion of the constituents of the 45th district without a limited bus option. Under the SBS, the B44 covers more than 9 miles from Williamsburg to Sheepshead Bay.
Many constituents in the 45th district have complained about losing the limited B44 bus stop at Avenue L and Nostrand Avenue. Further, students who attend I.S. 240 Andries Hudde Junior High School, at Nostrand Avenue between Avenues K and L, are also negatively impacted.
WHEN: Tuesday, November 19th 2013, 7AM.
WHO: Council Member Jumaane D. Williams (D-Brooklyn), Flatbush Residents
WHAT: Press Conference to Address the Restoration of Essential Limited Bus Stops on the B44 Line
WHERE: The limited bus stop on the B44 line at Avenue L and Nostrand Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11210
