21st Street Transit Priority and Safety Study

21st Street Transit Priority and Safety Study

Plan to create expedited bus service on 21st street

The NYC DOT is beginning the process of obtaining community input on the creation of bus lanes on 21st street from Hoyt Avenue North to Queens Plaza North.

The goal of these bus lanes will be to create expedited public transit. Note however that creating these lanes will probably reduce either the current available lanes for vehicular traffic or parking spots (Or both).

Following is a link to their recent presentation to the Community Advisory Board.


For an overview of these and similar projects, please see:

Current Better Buses Projects and Current Projects pages on the DOT website

OANA is participating on this advisory board, so we are reaching out to our neighbors for their comments on this subject.

Make your voices heard!! Please email any comments to feedback@oana-ny.org.
