Effective the day after tomorrow, Sunday, January 6th, the MTA will restore weekend service on the B69 bus. The bus will travel from Cortelyou Road in Kensington to Downtown Brooklyn seven days a week.

The expanded timetable for the B69 (and the B67) bus has already been posted on the MTA's website.

In March 2010, the MTA rerouted the B69 south of Flatbush Avenue. Prior to then, it had been traveling toward Downtown Brooklyn on 8th Avenue and toward Windsor Terrace on Prospect Park West, with the route ending on 10th Avenue at McDonald Avenue. As of March 2010, it traveled on 7th Avenue in both directions and followed the path of the B67 bus all the way to Cortelyou Road. At the same time, the B69's weekday service hours were reduced and its weekend hours eliminated.
