Just a short time ago, MTA New York City Transit announced that some bus stop changes will occur in Canarsie. These changes are being made in order to improve bus operations and traffic circulation in the vicinity of the Rockaway Parkway station. Here are the details courtesy of the press release I received:
Effective Sunday, May 16, New York City Department of Transportation will reorganize bus stops, implement traffic restructuring and initiate bi-directional peak-hour bus lanes on Rockaway Parkway between Glenwood Road and Flatlands Avenue in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn. These changes are being made in order to improve bus operations and traffic circulation in the vicinity of the Rockaway Parkway L station. There will be bus stop changes on the following routes: B6, B17, B42, B60 and B82.
Eastbound B6 buses terminating at the Rockaway Parkway Station will no longer discharge customers at the bus stop on Glenwood Road. Customers will be discharged at the B6 stop in the Rockaway Parkway Station Bus Loop.
The B17 stop on Glenwood Road and Rockaway Parkway will be relocated mid-block between East 96th Street and Rockaway Parkway.
These northbound B42 stops will be eliminated:
• Glenwood Road mid-block between Rockaway Parkway and East 98th Street. All customers should be discharged at the B42 bus stop in the Rockaway Parkway Bus loop.
• Rockaway Parkway on the near side of Conklin Avenue
The northbound B60 stop on Rockaway Parkway and Glenwood Road will be relocated to Rockaway Parkway north of the Rockaway Parkway Station.
The eastbound B82 stop on Glenwood Road mid-block between East 96th Street and Rockaway Parkway will be relocated to mid-block between Rockaway Parkway and East 98th Street.
