Downtown Brooklyn Transit Study Wants Your Input

We received an email informing us that an Open House will be held for the NYCDOT - Downtown Brooklyn Surface Transit Circulation Study on Thursday, 6/25/09 - 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. Here's the information:

NYCDOT is working with MTA-New York City Transit and Downtown Brooklyn Partnership to improve surface transit within Downtown Brooklyn. This study will focus on making bus routes more effective and on improving local transportation for Downtown Brooklyn residents, employees and visitors. In this first Open House we will present the initial results of our investigation into existing conditions and ask attendees to provide input about their travel patterns, needs, and issues in Downtown Brooklyn. Presentations at 6:15 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at Polytechnic University, 5 Metrotech Center - Dibner Library - Room LC400 (entrance at Metro Tech Center between Jay and Flatbush Avenue Extension); Brooklyn, New York

McBrooklyn's suggestions:

1: Run one bus all the way from Dumbo (along Cadman Plaza West) to Red Hook. That way, people in Dumbo and Brooklyn Heights can access the great shopping and restaurants in Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Red Hook and Boerum Hill, and people south of Atlantic can visit Dumbo and Brooklyn Heights without having to transfer.

2. How about a trolley to Red Hook?

Any more?
