Coming & Going: First Exit to Brooklyn

Friday, October 15, 2010; 10:41 AM

Poor Brooklyn. The popular borough has been unfairly under-served by the majority of Washington-New York bus lines, which typically pull a U-turn in Manhattan. But a new transportation company has taken up its cause.

On Friday, the KnowItExpress will start nonstop service between the U Street Metro in Northwest Washington and the Park Slope area of Brooklyn (more specifically, Flatbush and Fourth avenues). Cost is $25 one way and $45 round trip with a reservation, or $30 for walk-ups. For now, the buses will run Friday through Monday.
