I wondered when that would happen. I always wondered why it was set up the way it was (a la the N6). I guess I'll be Downtown Brooklyn soon to try it out.

YES! YES! YES! It's about damn time. Now I can finally get on at Cortelyou and E 18 and go to the Flatbush/Nostrand Junction faster than going on the B41. Also people get off at Cortelyou and E 19 so I wondered how they are able to get to where the B103 goes if the Canarsie bound doesn't stop at E 18.

B103 is what you should take over the B41 between those segments. B41 north of Nostrand is kinda congested at points and would be way too long.

hehe... You were wondering, I was waiting...
Either way, it's great that this will happen to the B103....

the route has really caught on over the yrs... and not only in canarsie, but at F'bush junction & along cortelyou rd. as well....

I did it twice at Cortelyou and E. 18 without any problems. First to Cablevision, the second to the Junction. It kinda felt a little strange but I gotten used to it. On the second run, a rider was kind of shocked that I have gotten on at that stop.
