New York MTA to Begin Restoring and Expanding Some Bus Services (NY Times)

January 3, 2013 – Though the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (A2 / 59259YHP7) recently lost its chairman, it is poised this week to add several new or restored bus services drafted under his watch. On Sunday, the authority said, the first round of service increases would begin, including a new extension on the Bx13 from East 161st Street to Bronx Terminal Market, the restoration of B39 service over the Williamsburg Bridge, and B57 service into Red Hook, Brooklyn. The additions are part of $17.8 million in service investments for New York City Transit, conceived in part to restore routes that were reduced or eliminated during budget cuts in 2010.
