The B84: New Bus Route in East New York
The B84 bus became effective on June 30, 2013. The new bus route was created to accommodate the rapid growth of residents in East New York due to Phase II of the Related Companies’ Nehemiah Homes and the Elton Street Corridor apartments brought in by the Hudson Companies. It is considered to be the “footprint” in East New York also transporting people directly to the Gateway Center Mall, also undergoing one of the largest expansions in the city, with over 20 high-end retail outlets currently under construction. The B84 is apart of the original B83 bus route. The bus connects with the #3 subway line at New Lots Avenue and travels along Seaview Avenue, Erskine Street, Vandalia and Fountain Avenue, Flatlands Avenue, Jerome Street, Cozine Avenue, Ashford Street, Hegeman Avenue, and Cleveland Street (the last stop on Livonia Avenue near the three line.) The operating times for the bus during the week is 5:30am-9pm and 10am to 6pm on weekends.
