Tonight and Thursday, DOT and New York City Transit will conduct the last of their spring and summer Bus Rapid Transit Phase II workshops. The
workshops are intended to allow DOT and NYCT to educate the public on Select Bus Service, and gather feedback on neighborhood transit needs, as the agencies plan future routes and service improvements.

Tonight's event will be held at New Dorp High School (465 New Dorp Lane, between Hylan Blvd. and Mill Rd.) in Staten Island; the final workshop is set for Thursday at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan (Bldg. A, enter on W. 27th St. between Seventh and Eighth Aves.). Each begins at 6:30 p.m.

For more background, check out the SBS web page and the "Introduction to Bus Rapid Transit Phase II" report [PDF] for the basics of New York-style BRT.
