Nostrand Avenue Line - South Section

Source:  B. Linder and Edward B. Watson, New York Division Bulletin, Vol 20, No. 2, April, 1977, p2 -10.

Continous service from Delancey Street to Avenue U was not provided by a one seat ride. Passengers had to change at Nostrand and Flatbush Avenues, "The Junction", today at Brooklyn College for the Nostrand Shuttle that was eventually extended to Avenue U in 1917.  The loop at the right of way next to the Long Island Bay Ridge Division opened in 1936 and the loop on the east side of Nostrand Avenue at Avenue U opened in 1938.  The Nostrand Shuttle merged with the Nostand Avenue line in 1945.
