Where do they go?Curious to learn where they'd expect to drop-off and pick up outside @barclayscenter https://t.co/m5knyf5r57— Norman Oder (@AYReport) August 25, 2016
According to the Bus Transportation page on the Barclays Center web site:
Proud Charter Bus Sponsor of Barclays Center

Visit Best Trails & Travel, call 212-206-6974 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To better accommodate your bus pick up and drop off for an event, we strongly recommend registering your bus information in advance.
Please note, due to limited space, all shuttle/bus drivers must be with their vehicles once staged.
As shown in the graphic at right, they're supposed to drop off on the limited area of Flatbush Avenue and Atlantic Avenue outside the arena, and pick up just on Flatbush, but, in the past, they've used Sixth Avenue, which is now taken for construction staging.
After the B3 tower (aka 38 Sixth Avenue) opens, more space will open up, but I can't imagine those residents want the sidewalk outside their front door used by arenagoers.
As noted below, there's a serious tailgate culture on the LIRR trains to hockey games, so some families might want to avoid that. But there's also traffic on the highways, too.
