NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The MTA has new bus routes throughout the 5 boroughs.

In Manhattan, the M12 began running between the West Village and Columbus Circle on the far West Side.

In Queens, there is new service between South Jamaica and Far Rockaway.

Brooklyn and the Bronx are also getting extended bus service.

And on Tuesday, new midday and evening service begins between Brooklyn and Staten Island.

The new bus service is part of a $5 million plan to meet the growing demand of bus ridership.

Here are the changes:

B13, B83, Q8 extensions

All three routes will be extended to a new bus terminal at Gateway Center II (Gateway Center North) in the Spring Creek area of Brooklyn.

Bx24 extension

The route will be extended from Westchester Square to the end of Marconi Street by the 911 Call Center in the Hutchinson Metro Center. The extension adds four eastbound stops and four westbound at the Metro Center.

M12

The new service will accommodate customers along 11th and 12th Avenues between Abington Square in the West Village and Columbus Circle, an area that has been developing rapidly. The northern terminal will be on West 58th Street at Broadway. The southern terminal will be on Eighth Avenue at Jane Street.

Q17, Q27 terminal changes

The terminals for both routes in downtown Flushing will be relocated from Main Street between 39th Avenue and Roosevelt Avenue to 138th Street between 39th and 37th Avenues.

Q113 Local becomes Q114 Limited

The Q113 local route will be restructured as the Q114 Limited to provide faster service to customers traveling a long distance along Guy R. Brewer Boulevard in South Jamaica and Rochdale Village. The new Q114 route will make limited stops on the Boulevard, then all local stops along Brookville Boulevard and through Woodmere, Cedarhurst, Inwood, Lawrence and Far Rockaway. During overnight hours, it will make all local stops along Guy R. Brewer Boulevard. The Q113 Limited will continue its limited-stop service from Jamaica through Far Rockaway, and the Q111 will continue to make all local stops from Jamaica through Rosedale.

S93 service additions (begins on Sept. 2)

Midday and evening service will be added to the limited-stop route that travels between Bay Ridge in Brooklyn and the College of Staten Island. Buses will run between 5:45 a.m. and 10 p.m.

X21 Super Express (service begins on Sept. 2)

The Super Express concept is coming to Eltingville in Staten Island via the X21, which will travel to Midtown Manhattan along 42nd Street. It will operate during morning and evening peak hours, making a limited number of stops and offering a faster commute for many customers of existing Staten Island express buses. The terminal in Manhattan will be located on East 41 Street and First Avenue. The Staten Island terminal will be located in the Hylan Boulevard bus loop on Richmond Avenue.
