The Flatbush Depot is a Brooklyn Division depot located in Flatlands, Brooklyn, near the Kings Plaza shopping center, where a number of bus routes terminate. The depot occupies two blocks, bounded by Fillmore Avenue, East 49th Street, Avenue N, and Utica Avenue.
The Brooklyn Heights Railroad (part of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company) opened the depot in mid-1902 along its Flatbush Avenue Line (later the Bergen Beach Shuttle) on Avenue N. The rebuilt depot, which re-opened in 1949, was designed by architect D. R. Collin of the BRT, was intended to be the first of a new system-wide design, but few of the company's depots, mostly inherited from former streetcar operators, were rebuilt to match such designs. It eventually served a number of lines from the Flatbush area, including the Bergen Beach Shuttle, Flatbush Avenue Line, Nostrand Avenue Line, Ocean Avenue Line, and Utica Avenue Line.
