HUNTS POINT - A new bus route launches in the Bronx today, making travel easier for Hunts Point residents.

The Bx46 bus travels from Prospect and Longwood avenues and ends at the Hunts Point Market. Residents say the route is almost a mile, making it inconvenient to cross to the other side of the Bruckner Expressway.

Bus riders say they're now looking forward to having better access to the pool, parks and market.
