“Brooklyn’s tech industry is changing the face of New York – and now, we’ll have a bus route that will allow the booming Tech Triangle to continue to grow and innovate,” Senator Squadron stated in the release. The new service will connect Downtown Brooklyn, Dumbo, Vinegar Hill and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The route will be determined with input from stakeholders. However, it potentially could be an extension of the B25 bus line, moving the bus from Main Street where it becomes delayed by congestion.
According to Community Board 2, if approved at the NYC Transit Committee meeting scheduled for July 23, 2012, implementation of these and other service investments will be phased in over the course of a year beginning in October.
