Yo! Bus, Four Other Bus Stop Proposals Weighed by CB3 September 10

Must Read

If you’re concerned about the proliferation of “Chinatown buses,” it might not be a bad idea to drop by Community Board 3’s transportation committee meeting Tuesday, September 10.  That evening, the panel will hear proposals to add a new bus stop or expand service at five locations throughout the neighborhood.

Yo! Bus, Greyhound’s new service that launched from 2 Pike St. last December, will be asking to double the number of scheduled daily stops from 14 to 28.  Also on the agenda —  these applications:

  • NYC Style Limo Inc, 95 Canal St.
  • Blue Sky Bus Tours Inc, 51 Chrystie St.
  • Asian Express Travel Inc, 30 Pike St.
  • A&W Inc, 9 Chatham Square

The meeting will take place at University Settlement, 184 Eldridge at 6:30 p.m.  Also that evening, the Department of Transportation will followup on requests to improve traffic/pedestrian flow at Clinton and Grand streets and review last year’s safety improvements along Delancey Street.

  1. There are a number of buses that idle for hours in the parking area near Pier 36 ( Basketball City).
    That is not good for the folks who use the sad, construction plagued never complete “green way” along the East River Park to bike, jog and walk,

  2. Some of us LIKE having bus access in the neighborhood! I’m sorry I cannot be there on a Tuesday evening, a teahing evening for me, but let me urge those who WANT busses available to also attend!

  3. Exactly! Just because we currently host the entire city’s cheap buses, doesn’t mean that we’re the designated NYC bus depot.
    Spread the wealth, park it in brooklyn.

  4. Why not use the LowLine abandoned station? With all the Kickstarter money, it could be the most beautiful underground bus station in the world!

  5. Come on, these buses are getting a free ride on the taxpayers dime; and traffic congestion and dangerous crossings are all we get. They should be made to chip in together and purchase land on SPURA, and build their own bus station, like real bus companies. Sure, they pay taxes, too, but to ride on our roads; not to idle on them.
