The B67 bus will cover more ground as of Monday, September 9th, when it begins terminating at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The extended route will only be followed Mondays through Fridays and only from 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The growth of the Brooklyn Tech Triangle (DUMBO, Downtown Brooklyn, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Industrial Park), "the City’s largest cluster of tech activity outside of Manhattan," is the reason for the extension.

When buses on the extended route reach their current end point at Jay and Sands street, they will continue on from Downtown Brooklyn to the York Street F subway station (at York and Jay streets in DUMBO, underneath the Manhattan Bridge), through the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and to Wythe Avenue and Clymer Street in South Williamsburg.

Vinegar Hill, a six-block, old world, historical area ("Vinegar Hill: Step into the Old World of Brooklyn"), will also be served by the extension.

The northbound and southbound routes:
  • Northbound route: from Kensington to Downtown Brooklyn; then along Jay Street, Front Street, Bridge Street, York Street, Gold Street, and Sands Street; then through the Brooklyn Navy Yard; exiting onto Kent Avenue; and continuing to its northern terminal on Division Street at Wythe Avenue, where it will connect with the B62.
  • Southbound route: along Wythe Avenue and Clymer Street; through the Brooklyn Navy Yard; along Sands Street, Gold Street, York Street, Pearl Street, Sands Street, and Jay Street; then resuming the existing route to Kensington.

Those B67s that don't travel all the way to the Navy Yard will continue to terminate on Sands Street, on the far side of Jay Street.

A new B67/B69 schedule has been posted online, dated September 8, 2013. The B67 weekday, Saturday, and Sunday schedules are on pages 3 to 7, followed by the B69 weekday, Saturday, and Sunday schedules on pages 8 to 12.
