Brooklyn Bus Network Redesign: Route profiles

For languages other than English, use the Google Translate tool at the bottom of this page.  

As part of the Brooklyn Bus Network Redesign Draft Plan, we have created profiles for each of the proposed bus routes. Each profile includes:  

  • The proposed route type: Crosstown (SBS), Limited, Rush, Local, or Express  
  • Proposed route terminals  
  • What route(s) currently serve the corridor  
  • A detailed description of the proposed routing changes  
  • Proposed route improvements associated with the changes  
  • Whether the route runs along a proposed or existing priority corridor  
  • Proposed versus existing route length  
  • Proposed versus existing average stop spacing  
  • Proposed versus existing turns per mile  
  • Proposed bus, subway, and LIRR connections  
  • Proposed service frequencies and spans  
  • A map of the proposed route, showing exactly where proposed service is added or discontinued, along with callout boxes explaining which routes would replace discontinued segments  
  • A stop list showing which stops the proposed route would serve and which are proposed to be removed as part of the bus stop balancing effort  

Profiles also list the proposed frequency and span for each route. These are broken down by days (weekdays, Saturday, and Sunday) and specific time periods on each day. Those are as follows: 


Local, Limited, Rush, and Crosstown/SBS


  • AM Peak: 6 a.m. to 8:59 a.m.
  • Midday: 9 a.m. to 1:59 p.m.
  • PM Peak: 2 p.m. to 5:59 p.m.
  • Early Evening: 6 p.m. to 7:59 p.m.
  • Late Evening: 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday:

  • Early Morning: 6 a.m. to 8:59 a.m.
  • Morning: 9 a.m. to 11:59 a.m.
  • Midday: Noon to 4:59 p.m.
  • Early Evening: 5 p.m. to 7:59 p.m.
  • Late Evening: 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

Express Buses


  • Early AM: 5 a.m. to 5:59 a.m.
  • AM Peak: 6 a.m. to 8:59 a.m. 
  • Midday: 9 a.m. to 3:59 p.m. 
  • PM Peak: 4 p.m. to 6:59 p.m.  
  • Evening: 7 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. 

Saturday and Sunday: 

  • Early Morning: 5 a.m. to 5:59 a.m.
  • Morning: 6 a.m. to 8:59 a.m. 
  • Midday: 9 a.m. to 3:59 p.m. 
  • Early Evening: 4 p.m. to 6:59 p.m.  
  • Late Evening: 7 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. 

Each profile lists existing routes the proposed route is associated with. For example, the route profile for the proposed B4 states that its service areas are currently served by the B4 and B64 in the existing network. Some of the current routes have been replaced by new routes, but much of the same areas are still covered. Even if an existing route doesn’t appear in the proposed plan, that doesn’t mean that service is gone. It might just be called something else and look a little different. 

You can also check out our  “Finding Your New Route” chart, which provides an overview of how bus routes are related. You can then look at individual route profiles to learn more.
