The Second Ave. subway project may be just inching forward, but the city and the MTA have big plans for an aboveground face-lift, too.

 

Bus-only lanes that would speed travel along First and Second Aves. are planned for September 2010, officials said Tuesday.

 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is buying dozens of super-stretch buses for the new service. Each big rig will have three doors instead of two, so passengers can get on and off more quickly.

I'm glad it is 3 doors. Perfect for SBS, but artics really should have 3 doors as it is a hassle when the bus is crowded and people need to get off causing delays for when people need to get on the bus.

 

I dont know why MTA didnt order their D60HF's with 3 doors to begin with makes it easier for boarding and unboarding
