MTA New York City Transit to Introduce More Service Investments

MTA New York City Transit has proposed a series of investments and initiatives that will improve service, reliability, and provide customers with new travel options. The $15.5 million worth of investments include added service to growing neighborhoods and new employment/retail centers; resources to improve service quality; a continued rollout of Select Bus Service; and improved intermodal connectivity. $10.1 million in new service initiatives are included in the MTA's 2015 budget that is part of the 2015-2018 four-year Financial Plan. The MTA Board will vote on 2015's final Financial Plan in December. The other $5.4 million in investments will be incorporated into the 2014 budget and will be implemented as early as August. The MTA will extend weekend service from its current terminus at Chambers St to Broad St. Extending the line will improve connectivity by providing Williamsburg and Bushwick customers with a transfer at Fulton St. It also increases service into Lower Manhattan and eliminates the need to transfer at Chambers St for service into Lower Manhattan. On average, 14,000 weekend customers will benefit from this added service when it is implemented in mid-2015. On August 31, the B13 and B83 bus routes will be extended to Gateway Center II in Spring Creek. The lines will serve a growing retail center that will double in size with the opening of Gateway Center II in the fall. The extended route will benefit 2,000 daily weekday customers, 2,000 Saturday customers and 1,400 Sunday customers. In mid-2015, the Bx5 bus will be split and weekend service extended to Bay Plaza Shopping Center. The change will not only improve service reliability, but will also serve another growing retail center. A large enclosedmall will open at the existing shopping center in the fall. The service change will benefit 12,000 daily weekday customers, 7,500 Saturday customers, and 5,500 Sunday customers by improving reliability and providing additional access to the shopping center.
