DOT Kicks Off Citywide Transit Plan

|
NYC currently has the slowest bus service in the U.S., and ridership has declined 16 percent since 2002. DOT is looking to turn those trends around, speed up buses, improve walking access to transit, and plan service to meet future demand. While the city's buses and subways are run by the MTA, DOT can make a big difference for surface transit through its management of streets, sidewalks, and traffic signals.
