Bring Back the B71 Bus!
When the MTA eliminated the B71 bus route that ran along Union Street in June 2010, they cut a vital transportation link for our neighborhoods.
Students lost their route to school. Seniors lost the bus that took them to the grocery store and shopping on Fifth Avenue. The link up to Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum, or down to Columbia Street and Brooklyn Bridge Park was severed.
The B71, connecting the waterfront to Eastern Parkway along Union Street, served as a vital link for Cobble Hill, the Columbia Waterfront District, Carroll Gardens, Gowanus, Park Slope, and Prospect Heights. With more families & businesses all along the route, we need the B71 back! Civic leaders have proposed some smart modifications that make the route even better.
