- Goodbye B25 -- The first MTA service cuts are slated for June 28, when 21 bus routes will be eliminated and weekend service on most lettered subway lines will be reduced, according to NY1. As we've previously reported (here and here), service on the B23, B25, B37, B39, B51 and B75 buses will be eliminated. Other Brooklyn service changes include ending weekend service on the X27 and X28 express bus routes, and more cutbacks on the B2, B4, B7, B16, B24, B48, B57, B65, B69, B71 and B75.
