In an effort to provide faster, more reliable and more direct service”, the BM3 which is the Express bus service Sheepshead Bay and Midtown/Downtown,
Manhattan, has been rerouted dropping three Gerritsen stops
The BM3 will remain on Batchelder Street to travel between Avenue X and Avenue Z in both directions.
These three BM3 bus stops have been discontinued:
* Coyle Street & Avenue Y
* Knapp Street & Avenue X/Allen Street
* Avenue W & Knapp Street
The BM3 bus stops at Batchelder Street and Avenue X or Avenue Z instead. Customers using the bus stops on Knapp Street will have to walk the block over to Gerritsen to use the BM4, which travels along Gerritsen Avenue, and provides express bus service to and from the same bus stops as the BM3 in Manhattan.
