Delay in Bus Rapid Transit pushes possible Flatbush route further back
Atlantic Yards Report
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)--with a dedicated express lane, staggered stoplights, and perhaps new loading platforms--on Flatbush Avenue might be crucial to the success of the Atlantic Yards project, as I've written.
Now a possible Flatbush Avenue route is pushed even further into the future, because of delays in the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's BRT experiment, known as Special Bus Service.
I wrote nearly two years ago that the pilot Nostrand Avenue project might not begin until 2008. Now that route is delayed four years--and a subsequent route on Flatbush Avenue wouldn't arrive until well after 2012.
