BRT In The Bronx

New York has just described the design of its first BRT project, which will be in the Bronx and will feature:
  • Prepayment of fares.
  • Boarding at front and back doors
  • Fewer stops
  • Transit Signal Priority
  • Terracotta colored bus lanes, with stepped up enforcement to keep cars out

Many similar BRT lines will be implemented through the city if congestion pricing is adopted.
