The Greene and Gates Avenues Line is a public transit line in Brooklyn, New York City, United States, running mostly along Fulton Street, Greene Avenue, and Gates Avenue between Downtown Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens. Originally a streetcar line, it is now the B52 bus route, operated by the New York City Transit Authority.
The Brooklyn City Railroad opened a branch of their Fulton Street Line along Greene Avenue, Franklin Avenue, and Gates Avenue to Broadway by 1874. By 1897, the line was extended northeast along Gates Avenue past Broadway to Myrtle Avenue, and east along Myrtle Avenue on trackage built for the Bushwick Avenue Line to Ridgewood, Queens. Buses were substituted for streetcars on October 5, 1941.
