Worried about the B61?

Next month, MTA plans to merge the B61 and the B77. The new B61 will still run through the Columbia Waterfront. But instead of ending at Ikea, it will continue to Park Slope and Windsor Terrace. And this has our friends in Red Hook Economic Development worried about:
  • Overcrowding from fitting the riders of two bus lines into one line
  • Slower travel times to accommodate longer boarding times from increased usage
  • Schedule delays because of traffic conditions miles from Red Hook and the Columbia Waterfront.
If you're worried too, make your worries heard by filling out RHED's new survey:

Then clear your schedule for Thursday night, because MTA representatives are coming to a meeting of Community Board 6's Transportation Committee, and they deserve to hear an earful. The details:

When: Thursday, May 20
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Where: Long Island College Hospital
