Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a transit solution that combines the permanence, speed, and reliability of rail, with the flexibility of buses, at a fraction of the cost of a new subway line.


879,000 New Yorkers commute more than 1 hour each way to work, half a million to jobs that earn less than $35,000 per year


Phase 1 of construction on the Second Avenue Subway costs approximately $3 billion, BRT will cost a fraction of that


Parents living in the outer boroughs will get to spend approximately 20 more minutes a day with their children if they commute via a BRT corridor along Woodhaven Boulevard


BRT buses in other U.S. cities travel approximately 3 times faster than NYC’s local buses
