An additional service was added to Pointz Career Technology Center at Greenwich Village and Dayton View Triangle.

One bus was eliminated from Greenwich Village to Meadowdale, Fifth Street and Burkhardt Avenue to Belmont High School, and Xenia Avenue and Patterson Avenue to Thurgood Marshall due to low ridership.

Routes 1, 2 and 4 are now serving Roberts Drive, Fifth Street, and Edwin C. Moses Boulevard due to the closure of the Third Street Bridge. Trip times will be adjusted by an additional 1-2 minutes.

Route 8 will once again take Main Street, Riverview Avenue, and Salem Avenue for both inbound and outbound trips.

The Route 8 6:30 a.m. southbound trip from Arlene Avenue and Free Pike will be eliminated.
