Bus-only lanes get federal boost


The city’s plan to build a two-lane bus-only corridor with a pedestrian walkway along 34th St. picked up a little steam on Thursday with $18.4 million from the federal government.

The money will reportedly cover about half the estimated cost of building the lanes along the length of congested 34th Street.

The lanes are expected to increase speeds of the M16 and M34 buses by 20 to 40 percent.
