Pilot program to provide van services to former bus riders

A new pilot program is being launched to help Brooklyn commuters reach their destinations as major MTA bus line cuts are set to go into

DITMAS PARK - A new pilot program is being launched to help Brooklyn commuters reach their destinations as major MTA bus line cuts are set to go into effect next week. Van services will act in lieu of bus lines such as the B23, B39, and B51. Over the next few weeks, city officials will be assessing areas in Brooklyn that would benefit the most from the new plan.

Once the locations are chosen, pick-up and drop-off locations will be determined by the drivers and marked by street signs. The cost of a local van ride will be $2.

An evaluation will be conducted after the program has been in place for one year.
