Interstate Bus Stops Proposed at 160 East Broadway, 59 Canal

Must Read

Four more bus permits will be considered by Community Board 3 in the coming month.

According to the October agenda, these are the applications CB3’s transportation committee will evaluate during its October 8th meeting:

  • Z & D Tours, 59 Canal St
  • Hong Yun Inc, opposite of 132 Madison St, east of Mechanic Alley, under the Manhattan Bridge
  • Pandora Travel Inc, 30 Pike St
  • AA Bus Inc, 160 E Broadway

The 160 East Broadway location is just a stone’s throw from a proposed bus stop in front of Seward Park that got neighbors quite riled up last year. The Department of Transportation eventually agreed to move the stop to Pike Street. Another location being floated now is a stretch of Canal Street right in front of the future Jarmulowsky hotel. This month, CB3 rejected three bus stop proposals. The community board has no authority to approve or deny applications, but it forwards advisory opinions to the DOT.

The meeting takes place at 6:30 p.m. at University Settlement, 184 Eldridge.

  1. When will our local, state and federal officials get involved in coming up with a long-term plan for these buses instead of turning our neighborhood into a de facto Port Authority?

  2. It would be good if DOT would disclose how many other buses are using the same stop. 59 Canal is an example where other buses are there already. What is the total impact?

  3. I’m not a fan of the bus stops either, but to be fair, the bus stop you are referring to was there long before Dimes was. Dimes had to know what they were getting into before they opened.

  4. The buses, and some of the people riding them, pose a major safety issue, as many kids run around Seward Park and on their way to the Educational Alliance building. Not to mention pollution, crowding, and traffic problems. Very bad idea, we should all fight it at CB3 and the DOT like we did, successfully, previously.
