    PROJECT GOALS

    B82 LIMITED EXISTING ROUTE MAP

    KEY ISSUES

    Southern Brooklyn was identified with community participation in the NYCDOT/NYCT Bus Rapid Transit Phase II study (2009) as a corridor with long and slow bus trips, with some trips taking as long as 2 hours. The B82 serves over 32,000 daily riders.

    BACKGROUND

    NEXT STEPS Continue to gather community input by meeting with stakeholder

    and community groups along the corridor Plan for SBS improvements along the corridor, including the

    development of a comprehensive street design

    Faster and more reliable bus service Reduced traffic conflicts between buses and other traffic Stronger transit connections to jobs, schools, and retail along Kings

    Highway and Flatlands Avenue Better transit service for neighborhoods far from the subway, with

    connections to six subway lines and the three highest-ridership bus routes in Brooklyn (B46, B6, and B44)

    Traffic and pedestrian safety upgrades in key Vision Zero priority locations and at complex intersections

    DATA COLLECTION

    Many parts of Southern Brooklyn are underserved by transit

    Buses are regularly delayed at bus stops and traffic signals, leading to slow and unreliable service

    Complex intersections contribute to high crash rates along the corridor

    Extensive data collection and analysis along the corridor has been informing the development of the project, including the following:

    Traffic and bus volumes and speeds Sources of bus delays, bus running times, and on-time performance High-crash locations and Vision Zero priority intersections Bus ridership, including bus-to-subway and bus-to-bus transfers Over 1,500 comments from stakeholders on transit, traffic, and safety

    issues along the corridor, and opportunities for improvement Studies of traffic, parking, and delivery patterns

    Data collection is ongoing, including a survey of the delivery needs of businesses along the corridor and a survey of shoppers travel patterns.COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

    Community engagement for the project is ongoing and has included:

    Summer 2015: Kickoff meeting with elected officials and community board representatives

    Fall 2015: Interactions with bus riders at 24 B82 bus stops, reaching over 1,500 bus riders; Brooklyn Borough Service Cabinet Meeting presentation; meeting with Kings Highway BID

    Spring/Summer 2016: Continued engagement with elected officials, community boards, and other stakeholders April 2016
