Whither BRT? Flatbush Avenue won't be first test for fast buses
Atlantic Yards Report
Regional transportation engineers and advocates have noted that Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards plan proposal does not make allowances for a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line down Flatbush Avenue.
Journalist Norman Oder looks into the possibilities and learns that the Metropolitan Transit Authority is planning to test BRT, but on Nostrand Avenue, not Flatbush, thus dimming the hopes of local transportation advocates that a sensible, modern transportation plan will ever be attached to the Atlantic Yards project.
