Despite losing chairman Joe Lhota last month, the MTA plans to move forward with $17.8 million in service investments. The first round, announced Sunday, will include a new extension on the Bx13 from East 161st Street to Bronx Terminal Market, the restoration of B39 service over the Williamsburg Bridge, and B57 service into Red Hook. “These enhancements were all a result of listening to our customers and keeping close watch on changing travel trends,” said New York City Transit president Thomas F. Prendergast, conveniently leaving out the planned fare hike.
