B-82 Bus Route Gets Services Changes, Limited Stops
New York City Transit last week introduced B82 limited-stop bus service during the weekday morning and evening rush hours between Coney Island and Spring Creek. Limited-stop service saves time for commuters who travel longer distances.
Limited bus stops in Canarsie include:
Flatlands and Ralph avenues; Flatlands Avenue and East 80th Street (eastbound) and East 82nd Street (westbound); Flatlands and Remsen avenues; East 96th Street and Remsen Avenue and Glenwood Road and Rockaway Parkway L subway station.
The following is information for the service change distributed by the MTA:
•From Spring Creek to Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue;
5:22 AM and 8:06 AM and 12:16 PM to 4:12 PM on weekdays
•From Coney Island-Stillwell Av Station to Spring Creek;
6:39 AM to 9:43 AM and 2:11 PM to 5:57 PM on weekdays;
B82 Limited-Stop Service will make:
•All local stops between Coney Island-Stillwell Ave. Station and Cropsey Avenue/Bay 38 St.
•Limited stops only between Cropsey Ave./Bay 38 St and Rockaway Pkwy. station.
•All local stops between Rockaway Parkawy station and Spring Creek.
During weekday rush hours, the B82 local does not serve Coney Island. For service to Coney Island, transfer to the B82 Limited-Stop Bus at Cropsey Ave./Bay 38 St.
•Some B82 local buses terminate at the Rockaway Parkway. For service to Spring Creek, transfer at the Rockaway Parkway Station for Limited-Stop service or a Spring Creek bound local bus.
Additional changes for local bus service include the elimination of the following northbound B42 stops:
•Glenwood Road mid-block between Rockaway Parkway and East 98th Street. All customers should be discharged at the B42 bus stop in the Rockaway Parkway Bus loop.
•Rockaway Parkway on the near side of Conklin Avenue
The northbound B60 stop on Rockaway Parkway and Glenwood road will be relocated to Rockaway Parkway north of the Rockaway Parkway Station.
The eastbound B82 stop on Glenwood Road mid-block between East 96th Street and Rockaway Parkway will be relocated to mid-block between Rockaway Parkway and East 98th Street. Routes, terminal stands, service spans and destination signs on these routes remain unchanged.
