On Tuesday, September 1, 2020, city bus #46 was unable to continue its journey along Route 44 because it got stuck in the uneven road surface at the corner of Albany Avenue and Vine Street. The Department of Transportation transferred passengers to an alternate bus so that they could continue to their individual destination.
