The rally to take a stand on the elimination of the B71 bus is tomorrow, Wednesday, June 23 at 5 PM at the Union and Smith Street B71 Bus Stop.
The B71 is so important to us and its route isn't duplicated by any other train or bus line. It connects Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and the Columbia Waterfront with Park Slope and beyond. For the elderly and disabled its an absolutely vital bus for doctors, families, shopping - and it takes us to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Gardens - children need it to come to schools in our neighborhoods and people need the bus to get to work.
Columbia Waterfront neighbors- For anyone who lives near Columbia Street a group is meeting up at the B71 bus stop at Union and Columbia to take the 4:51 PM bus to the rally (if the bus doesn't come, and let's face it, its a possibility, we can easily walk to Smith Street). BRING SIGNS SHOWING ALL THE PLACES YOU GO TAKING THE B71!
Let's keep Brooklyn connected!
