From 59th Street to 43rd Street there's now a green curbside bike lane on Second Avenue (tuff curbs to come). The remaining gaps in the bike lane are near the Queensboro Bridge and Queens-Midtown Tunnel.
While bus ridership is down citywide -- and especially in Manhattan -- there are some routes that are bucking the trend. One that's gaining riders is the M86, which got a package of upgrades from DOT and the MTA in 2015. The improvements included off-board fare collection and queue jumps -- short bus lane segments that enable buses to cut ahead of other traffic at signals.
The completion of phase one of the Second Avenue Subway enabled DOT to move forward with a dedicated bus lane and protected bike lane on 37 blocks of Second Avenue.
