BROOKLYN HEIGHTS - City and MTA officials say that service along the B61 bus route will be upgraded with the latest technology no later than June.

The B61 will join the B63 as the second bus in Brooklyn to use GPS devices to let commuters know where buses are on their routes and when buses will arrive at their stop.

In addition to GPS upgrades, more B61 buses have been added to the evening rush hour, according to Councilman Brad Lander.
