New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT), together with MTA NYC Transit, unveiled a new Select Bus Service route along 86th Street in Manhattan on July 13, 2015. This corridor currently serves 24,000 commuters daily and is the busiest route citywide per mile. This marks the 8th SBS in the city and provides direct connections to twelve different bus routes. Design elements along this route include off-board fare collection, real-time passenger information signs, and the future construction of bus bulbs and pedestrian neckdowns, which will make the street safer, supporting the City’s Vision Zero goal. Route features three-door articulated buses branded with the blue SBS logo, and features new destination signs with flashing blue lights.
