Coming to select M14 A/D SBS stops along 14th Street: bus boarding platforms
For those of you who take the M14 A/D SBS … starting today (Nov. 7), the DOT and MTA will start putting in new bus-boarding platforms as part of the 14th Street Transit & Truck Priority Pilot, which launched in early October.
The DOT has installed these platforms at other locations throughout the city “to make it easier for customers to get on and off buses, give more room for pedestrians on the sidewalk, and help buses move faster as there’s no need to pull over to the curb saving up to a minute per stop.”
Today we announced w/@MTA that bus boarding platforms will be installed at seven M14 A/D #SelectBusService stops to further improve bus speeds on 14th St. These platforms provide a dedicated space for riders to board, making access easier & safer.
