WILLIAMSBURG - The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is proposing two new bus routes in Williamsburg in an effort to ease traveling across the borough.

One of the proposed bus lines, the B32, would connect the waterfronts in Williamsburg and Greenpoint to Long Island City, Queens. An extension of the B67 line would link Downtown Brooklyn to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Both lines would start from the Marcy Avenue subway stations.

The MTA held a hearing tonight where community members were able to voice their opinions. Some residents say they look forward to the changes, but would like to see access to more subway stations.

The proposed lines would go into effect this fall if approved.
