Starting tomorrow, September 20th, the discontinued B23 bus, which served Flatbush, Ditmas Park, Kensington, and Borough Park, will be replaced by Group Ride Vehicles in a trial program. The vehicles, operated by Sunset Service Transportation, will run from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., seven days a week for $2.00 per ride. Free transfers won't be provided between Group Ride Vehicles and the city's buses and subways.

The article "Group Ride Service Officially Launches on Former B23 Route," published today in "Vos Iz Neias?," points out that
designated stops are marked with signs and are “No Standing” zones; cars aren't permitted to park there. In addition to the designated stops, "riders and drivers may also agree to unique drop off locations that are not among specified stops."
