In my neighborhood we are moving some bus routes and losing one. It looks like a done deal. There might be an upside to this. MORE PARKING. But there is never gonna be enough parking in Park Slope, so why just add more spots.
On my corner alone we will lose 3 bus stops. The B71 is going away and the B69 is moving to 7th Ave
I say add Premium Parking. Yea, We can put those fancy MuniMeters at the old bus stops and charge reasonable rates to store you personal property on public land. By reasonable, I mean $5 an hour during the day and $2 an hour overnight.
All the MuniMeters on 7th Ave are being used up by the shopkeepers "feeding the meter" all day. $1 an hour is like free. Maybe $5 an hour will keep them open for someone who wants to shop.
If ya gotta drop off you kids in Prospect Park for that picnic there are now 3 or 4 spots every 3 or 4 blocks along Prospect Park West. So you can't blame the new bike lane that you can't double park any more.
No more whining that you can't find a spot. Just shut up and pay.
