Brooklyn: Now Cool Enough for Jitney

For those who don’t like the LIRR (or at least the transfer in Jamaica), Hampton Jitney will pilot a new service later this spring from downtown Brooklyn to the East End. There will be at least one, and maybe two, stops in the borough, according to spokeswoman Jennifer Friebely, and buses will travel to both the North and the South Forks.

The move came with the prompting of Borough President Marty Markowitz, who announced it in his spring newsletter.
