Done deal, it was. Service for the community-opposed Yo! Bus begins next week here on the Lower East Side. A call to Peter Pan, which is operating the NYC-Phili route with Greyhound, confirms the scheduled launch.

So, despite the staunch opposition of Community Board 3 last week urging DOT to reconsider a Seward Park bus stop, those efforts appear to have been futile. The DOT just gave it the green, so to speak. See for yourself. Just stop by the Yo! Bus website and try to purchase tickets. The first date of ticket availability is September 27; we heard as early as next Tuesday, though.
