BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents and elected officials held a rally today calling on the MTA to fully restore the B37 bus line.

Last year, officials said the B37 would come back after more than three years of suspended service. The bus line is slated to return in June with less service and fewer stops.

The Third Avenue line was among dozens of buses that got the ax because of budget cuts and low ridership in June 2010.

The Restore the B37 Bus Coalition has attended just about every MTA board meeting, calling on members to fully restore the service. It plans to attend the next one as well, coming up on Jan. 25.

When it was fully operational, the line traveled along Third Avenue from Bay Ridge to Borough Hall. It will now go from Bay Ridge to Barclays Center.
