BROOKLYN - Bay Ridge mass transportation users are rejoicing at the news of the return of the B37 bus line.

The line has been inactive since 2010 because of budget cuts and low ridership.

The lack of bus service caused issues for students who attend the Guild For Exceptional Children School, as well as the disabled and senior commuters who used the bus to travel to the supermarket.
