M15 SBS Terminal Relocated from Allen Street Thanks to Neverending Roadwork

There’s some new street furniture crowding the sidewalk outside the Subway sandwich shop on Chrystie. Yep, it’s the M15 Select Bus Service ticket terminal, uprooted and relocated from Allen Street to this spot due to the neverending East Houston reconstruction project. Bet the overlords at the newly-rebranded Chrystie (nee Avalon) aren’t too happy about this right at their doorstep…

As first reported last month, southbound M15 service – both the local and Select Bus Service – is now rerouted via Chrystie Street. The the East Houston, Allen/Stanton, and Allen/Delancey stops are out of commission. Stops will instead be made at Chrystie/East Houston and Allen/Delancey (outside Petee’s Pies).

No word on how long the bus line will be on this detour, but our money is on the long haul. This capital works initiative to replace the infrastructure of water piping is already a decade in the making, and currently two years past its goal.  The latest projected completion date is sometime in December 2015.
