The New York City Department of Transportation and the MTA are working together to improve the city's bus system by implementing bus rapid transit improvements on routes throughout the city. Bus Rapid Transit is a cost-effective approach to transit service that cities around the world have used to make riding the bus more like riding the subway. Select Bus Service is New York City’s version of bus rapid transit and incorporates features such as dedicated bus lanes, off-board fare collection, and transit signal priority to offer faster and more reliable service on high-ridership bus routes.
