BROOKLYN - The B41 Limited bus has been named the slowest route in Brooklyn by the Straphangers Campaign.

The B41 route runs between Downtown Brooklyn and Kings Plaza through Bergen Beach at an average pace of 5.7 mph.

The Straphangers Campaign also named the B44 route, which runs between Sheepshead Bay and the Willamsburg Bridge, as the most unreliable route in Brooklyn.

Commuters who rely on the B44 were recently given an alternative option with the inclusion of the Select Bus Service. The new bus lets riders pay before boarding, and makes fewer stops, allowing for a quicker commute.

The annual Pokey and Schleppie Awards have named two Manhattan bus routes as the slowest in the entire city.
