Brooklyn Bus Network Redesign

Managing Agency:
MTA-NYC Transit
Location: Brooklyn
Summary Description: This project is part of MTA's effort to modernize New York City’s bus network and improve bus service borough by borough, with the goal of meeting customers’ priorities: frequent service, faster travel, reliable service, better connections, and an easy ride.
Status: Proposed
- Planning

The MTA is currently engaged in a borough-wide project to redesign Brooklyn’s bus network to improve speed, reliability, and ease of use for bus riders. This multi-year project focuses on addressing customer priorities including frequent and reliable service, faster travel, better connections and ease of use by simplifying the bus network, enhancing connectivity, improving frequency, balancing bus stops, and expanding bus priority with the NYC Department of Transportation.

Rider and resident input is crucial to this project. Residents can submit comments on the project via the MTA bus redesign network website. They can also submit feedback and comments through the MTA’s on-street outreach and engagement. These comments and feedback will be incorporated into the proposed final plan.
