B49 Route change..a option

Posted by caine515 on Mon Mar 26 14:56:00 2012

Was thinking of trying to improve the B49 with the B44SBS comning. Was thinking run the B49 down Ocean Avenue to Prospect Park-Empire Blvd to Washington-have it follow the old B48 route-right on Eastern Parkway to Rogers av-left on Rogers Avenue regular.
Return via Bedford Av to Eastern Parkway-left Eastern Parkway to Washington-left Washington to Empire-Right on Empire which becomes Ocean Avenue.
I think this could work becuase it gives better connections to the B12,B41,B43,B35 and a new connection to the B16 and to Brooklyn Museum by bus, something that was removed when the B71 left.
What do you guys think?

B68-#936-New Flyer
B36-#4847-New Flyer Excelsior

Although I have a different plan in mind for the B49 (running it along Empire), your idea would be an improvement with SBS coming. Flooding Rogers with buses does not make any sense. Too bad the MTA did not consider any reroutings of current routes when planning SBS. It's their typical myopic planning which they are so well paid for.

Why not just put the B49 via Bedford in both directions?

I was thinking the same thing.. thou I would prefer the B 49 running full via Ocean Av or its limited counterpart. There is a need and potential for a full Ocean Av bus.

Because Bedford has a lot of traffic and is only one block from Flatbush. Although Ocean is also one block from Flatbush, unlike Bedford it is lined with 6 six story apartment houses.
