B82 Select Bus Service

B82 Select Bus Service map


Effective Monday, October 1, 2018 

Overview

The B82 serves 28,000 daily riders and provides crucial crosstown bus service in Southern Brooklyn, connecting riders to 6 subway lines and 21 bus routes.  . 


SBS Improvements

Select Bus Service (SBS) brings faster and more reliable bus service to the B82, improving speed and reliability through dedicated bus lanes, off-board fare payment, and fewer stops. (B82 Local service continues, making almost all current stops.) B82 SBS also improves passenger comfort and convenience through enhanced bus stops that new or widened boarding islands at Cropsey Ave/Bay 37 St, Kings Hwy/Flatbush Ave and Kings Hwy/Nostrand Ave. 

The B82 SBS will also benefit from a more streamlined route. . With a westbound bus lane installed on Glenwood Rd,the service will operate in both directions on Glenwood Rd from Rockaway Pkwy to E 103 St, eliminating the circuitous route the westbound B82 uses to access the L station, and saving several minutes in travel time. The B82 Local and B6 will also operate via Glenwood Rd in the new bus lane. In the first weeks of service, this routing will be modified due to ongoing construction by NYC DDC on Glenwood Road.

The SBS service will also operate via Avenue K, between Kings Highway and Flatlands Ave. This will allow the B82 SBS to avoid the turns associated with the current “dog-leg” routing via the congested intersections of Flatbush Ave with Flatlands Ave and Kings Highway. The B82 Local service will continue to operate on the existing route via Flatlands Ave and Flatbush Ave, to maintain service at existing stops.

The western terminal of SBS service will be at Cropsey Ave and Bay 37 St, at a new boarding island built by NYC DOT. This will help to improve service reliability, and bus operations in that area. Customers wishing to go to Coney Island will still be able to take the B82 Local service, as well as multiple subway routes that intersect the B82.

The B82 SBS will have an expanded schedule with service throughout the day, replacing current Limited service that only operates in peak periods. SBS service will operate weekdays only, like the current Limited. Service will operate every 8 to 9 minutes during the morning and evening peaks, and every 10 to 12 minutes at off peak times.

How do I pay now?

Effective October 1, 2018, all B82 SBS customers must pay their fare BEFORE boarding at a fare machine. Bus stops typically have three fare machines. Two machines accept MetroCards and one machine accepts coins along with student half-fare MetroCards. After paying, you will receive a ticket as proof of purchase. You must keep your ticket for the duration of your trip. After paying, you can board the bus through any door. You do not need to show your ticket to the bus driver, unless you paid with coins and need a paper transfer. For customers using a MetroCard, transfers work the same way as other bus routes.
