Following up on the recent series of Bus Rapid Transit workshops, DOT and New York City Transit have posted an online survey to collect more public input on existing and future Select Bus Service routes and amenities. It’s a fairly detailed questionnaire with several opportunities to submit comments, so you may want to block out 10-15 minutes to make the most of it. It will be posted until September 4.
