5 Things You Should Know About New York City Bus Lanes


Why a Bus Lane? Over two and a half million people ride the bus every day in New York City. Buses reduce traffic and air pollution because they are more space and fuel efficient. Bus lanes keep buses from getting stuck in traffic, making bus travel fast and more reliable.

What is a Bus Lane?

It is a travel lane restricted to buses only during certain hours of the day. During this time, other vehicles may enter a bus lane only to make the next available right turn, or to quickly drop off or pick up passengers. Violating bus lane rules results in a $115 – $150 fine. Emergency vehicles are the only other vehicles allowed to drive in a bus lane. All other vehicles may enter a bus lane only to make the next available right turn, or to quickly drop off or pick up passengers.
