The New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) and the MTA are working together to improve the city's bus system by implementing bus priority improvements on routes throughout the city. The Better Buses Action Plan has the goal of improving bus speeds by 25% and aims to reverse the decline of bus ridership citywide. This program brings elements of Select Bus Service, New York City’s version of bus rapid transit, to bus routes throughout the city.
