Fully-Separated Busway Planned for NYC

NY's Dept. of Transportation has released pictures of a planned separated bus route on 34th St., which would be a first for the city.

Noah Kazis writes, "In addition to the features already found on New York's Select Bus Service, the 34th Street plan adds full separation from traffic, with two-way bus service operating on one side of the street. General traffic would travel one-way toward the Hudson River west of Sixth Avenue, and toward the East River east of Fifth Avenue. Between Fifth and Sixth, a new pedestrian plaza would be constructed in place of traffic lanes."
