MTA Bus Network Redesigns

NYC DOT is supporting the MTA’s effort to redesign the citywide bus network borough by borough. We are advising in the planning process for revised bus networks and developing bus priority maps with each borough redesign. Bus priority maps show streets prioritized for bus priority treatments, such as bus lanes, in the years to come. After the release of each borough map, NYC DOT will work closely with local communities to deliver bus priority improvements on key corridors identified on the map.

Bus Stop Accessibility

NYC DOT is evaluating all of the approximately 13,000 bus stops in New York City for compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines for physical accessibility. The purpose of this effort is to develop a prioritized list of bus stops that require accessibility improvements, enabling NYC to take action by adding accessible features such as pedestrian ramps and sidewalks.
