Advocates push for Flatbush Avenue bus lane as city begins outreach process


Flatbush Avenue, one of Brooklyn’s busiest traffic corridors, could be set to adopt a new bus lane along its length if advocates, local pols, and the city’s Department of Transportation get their way.

Spanning Brooklyn between the Manhattan and the Marine Parkway bridges, Flatbush Avenue is arguably the closest thing the borough has to a “Main Street,” and serves as a crucial traffic artery for those traveling within the borough and to other areas of the city.
