MTA acting chair Janno Lieber announces plan to improve bus service August 16 2021

MTA, NYCDOT Reveal Plan to Improve City’s Bus Network

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) on Monday announced an ambitious plan to improve New York City’s expansive bus network.  

The MTA and NYCDOT will build off ongoing efforts that have already yielded faster bus speeds and implement new initiatives to help ensure that the MTA bus system – which carried 2.1 million riders daily pre-pandemic – is ready to support the city’s recovery.  

Among other initiatives, the MTA will restart its Bus Network Redesign program this fall, beginning with the Bronx local bus redesign that will be implemented next summer. 

“Our goal today and every day is to provide bus service for our customers that is faster, more reliable and more accessible,” said acting MTA Chair Janno Lieber. “This package of initiatives, including more bus lanes, more busways, better bus lane enforcement, and better accessibility at bus stops, delivers on that promise.”
