The Flatbush Avenue Line is a public transit line in Brooklyn, New York City, United States, running along Flatbush Avenue between downtown Brooklyn and Marine Park. Originally a streetcar line, it is now the B41 bus, operated by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority out of the Flatbush Depot.

HistoryEdit

The Brooklyn City Rail Road opened a branch of their Fulton Street Line along Flatbush Avenue to Clarendon Road in Flatbush by 1874.[1] It was later extended to Avenue U in Marine Park, with a branch (the Bergen Beach Shuttle) east along Avenue N and Veterans Avenue to Bergen Beach. Buses were substituted for streetcars on March 5, 1951.
