It’s official: B37 bus back in service starting June 29
But Bay Ridge pols still want route extended past Barclays Center
The B37 bus is coming back!
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) confirmed to the Brooklyn Eagle on Tuesday that the shuttered bus line, which was eliminated in a cost-cutting measure in 2010, will be back in service starting June 29.
The B37 will run from Shore Road in Bay Ridge to the Barclays Center in downtown Brooklyn, making stops in several neighborhoods along the way, including Bay Ridge and Sunset Park. The bus runs along Third Avenue for a large portion of its route.
The MTA voted to restore the B37 back in July of 2013 after prodding from Brooklyn’s elected officials and transportation advocacy groups, but the agency didn’t announce an exact date the bus service would resume until now.
