NYC has one of the largest transit systems in the world. Working with partners at the MTA to improve our transit, DOT has made significant progress in making bus service faster and more reliable. Since 2014, DOT has built 63.8 bus lane miles (including 12 Select Bus Service corridors) and established busways on 14th Street in Manhattan, on Main Street in downtown Flushing, and on Jay Street in Brooklyn.
The City has also installed 1,500 Transit Signal Priority intersections, which improve bus travel times by reducing the time buses are stopped at traffic lights along a corridor. The City also continues to advocate for and support the MTA in its implementation of congestion pricing, which will speed up buses in the Manhattan Central Business District and raise funding for transit improvements.
