Review the B103 route summary

On its eastern end, the proposed B103 would be ex-tended to the future accessible New Lots Av  station via Glenwood Rd, Cozine Av, and Ashford St, providing a new connection between Canarsie and East New York. This extension would also shorten the walking connection between the B103 and the E 105 St  station.

On its western end, the proposed B103 would be shortened, with all trips terminating at The Junction at Flatbush Av/Nostrand Av. Service between The Junction and Downtown Brooklyn would be provided by both the proposed B41 Local and B41 Crosstown, as well as the  subways. Service between Cortelyou Rd and The Junction would be provided by the proposed B81. Service on 3 Av would be provided by the proposed B37, service on 4 Av would be discontinued.

As a Limited route, stops would be spaced slightly farther apart than Local routes to improve speed and reliability, but still within walking distance.

No frequency or service span changes are being proposed at this time.
