Officials announce new measures to increase mobility on NYC streets

Posted: Updated:
TREMONT -

Mayor Bill de Blasio has released the Better Buses Action Plan, which will identify locations and projects across New York City that will help increase bus speeds as part of the 2019 OneNYC strategic plan.

De Blasio announced his goal of improving bus speeds by 2020 earlier this year. Potential improvements on Webster Avenue between 174th and 176th streets include adding a southbound offset bus lane, a physical barrier to separate buses and right turning movements and signal timing to improve traffic flow.

The mayor also vows to speed up bus times for 600,000 New York City residents, including the 21,000 in the Bronx by next year.
