The Brooklyn Bus Network Redesign

The Brooklyn Bus Network Redesign is New York City Transit’s plan in the hope of improving bus travel for Brooklyn riders.

The Draft Plan, released on December 1, 2022, reimagines the current Brooklyn bus network. Much of what is in the Draft Plan is similar to today’s Brooklyn bus network. However, there are many proposals aimed at improving the network by simplifying it, straightening routes, creating new connections, strengthening interborough service, adjusting frequencies, and reviewing the distance between bus stops.

Beginning in January 2023, the MTA will host public events and workshops to gather additional input from customers and Brooklyn residents. This invaluable input will inform and shape the Proposed Final Plan. This process is laid out more fully in the report.
