Earlier today, MTA NYC Transit announced a southbound route revision for the M6. Here are the complete details courtesy of a press release sent to me by the agency:
In order to provide more consistent service on the M6 route, effective Sunday, July 12, the southbound M6 buses have been rerouted across 23rd Street, rather than 14th Street.
South Ferry-bound M6 buses will operate along the existing route to 23rd Street. Buses will then turn left on 23rd Street, right on Park Avenue South and onto Broadway to 14th Street. At that point, it will resume its regular route.
New M6 southbound bus stops will be on West 23rd Street at 7th Avenue and 6th Avenue and on East 23rd Street at Broadway – all existing M23 stops. There will also be M6 stops on Park Avenue South at East 22nd Street, East 20th Street and East 18th Street and on Broadway at East 14th Street – the last three are existing M1 stops. Frequency and running times will remain the same. The northbound M6 route will remain unchanged.
