MYFOXNY.COM -

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says 17 bus lines will be rolling again or expanded starting Sunday as the agency tries to bring back millions of dollars worth of service cut to prevent a deficit back in 2010.

Among the routes coming back:

The B57 in Brooklyn between Carroll Gardens and Red Hook;

The B39 between Williamsburg, Brooklyn and the Lower East Side;

The M9 in Manhattan will extend to East 29th Street from its terminus at 23rd Street and down from City Hall to Battery Park City;

The BX34 daytime service will return during weekends;

The Q27 overnight service from Horace Harding Expressway to Cambria heights, Queens.

The MTA says stronger revenues than anticipated made the service restorations possible.

    The first weekday test of the closed, northbound Pulaski Skyway wasn't much different from any other Monday. An estimated 40,000 motorists who take the Skyway toward Jersey City and Manhattan every day are now forced to find an alternate route. All northbound lanes were closed on Saturday for two-years during a rehabilitation project on the 82 year old span.
