THE BRONX - After three years of long waits and long walks, bus riders in Co-op City have a reason to celebrate. 

The MTA has approved a number of transportation changes that will improve bus service to the area following route reductions caused by budget cuts in 2010. 

Transportation officials analyzed the existing service in response to a number of complaints and requests from Community Board 10. It has now released a set of recommendations, which include realigning the Bx23 route to connect all parts of Co-op City at all times, adding a stop at Asch Loop and Adler Place, and another stop at Co-op City Boulevard and Dreiser Loop East. 

The MTA expects the upgrades to take effect sometime this summer.
