The New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) is currently piloting a Transit & Truck Priority design on 14th Street. From 6AM-10PM, seven days a week, only buses and trucks are permitted on 14th Street between 3rd and 9th Avenues. The 14th Street Transit & Truck Priority (TTP) Pilot Project was implemented by the NYC DOT in October 2019, aiming to improve M14 A/D Select Bus Service operations, safety on this Vision Zero Priority Corridor, and its importance as a truck route.
Public Works Partners is partnering with Sam Schwartz who will create and release periodic monitoring reports about the performance of the TTP Pilot Project. Traffic Databank, another partner, will handle data collection while Public Works will take the lead on public engagement.
The monitoring plan includes tracking the performance of bus activity; vehicle speeds and volumes on area roadways; bicycle and pedestrian volumes; and curbside activity. Data is being collected and gathered from a variety of sources including MTA NYCT, INRIX, NYCDOT, Citi Bike, amongst others.
