FLATLANDS - The MTA has agreed to bring back a Select Bus Service stop along Nostrand Avenue after cutting it last November. 

Bus riders say cutting the stop, at Nostrand Avenue and Avenue L, had forced them to walk much further to get to other bus stops. Losing the bus stop also made local buses overcrowded.

City Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn) says the stop will officially be reinstated in April.
