The B24 bus line’s weekend service is likely to return as part of the MTA’s restoration plan.
The bus line, which connects Brooklyn and Queens– via Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Sunnyside is likely to return in 2013. However, a final MTA meeting is expected to take place Monday that will determine its return.
While the service currently runs during weekdays, the weekend service was cut in 2010. The MTA cited budget constraints at the time. Given the fact that the B24 still runs Monday through Friday, elected officials are hopeful that weekend service will return.
The B24 runs through Sunnyside along Greenpoint Ave.
“While this is a good start, we need other eliminated western Queens services, like the W subway and QM22 express bus, reinstated as well,” said Mike Gianaris, who represents Sunnyside and Woodside in the New York State senate.
