I like the fact that it has its own lane, because like this is doesn't have to deal with traffic and the transportation is quicker. I like the idea about the bikes a lot of people need that bike park thing.They should have in New York those little buses that go threw every neighborhood to bring people to the main stop.

I THINK THE PRESENTATION YESTERDAY WAS VERY PUT TOGETHER
AND I THINK THE IDEA OF JUST HAVING BUS SERVICE AND NO TRAIN SERVICE IN NEW YORK IS STUPID.....
BECAUSE IT WOULD TAKE MUCH LONGER 2 TAKE A BUS ALL THE WAY 2 MANHATTAN BECAUSE OF TRAFFIC.
I DO NOT LIKE THE IDEA AT ALL.

It is right because it is more faster than any other bus and plus it has it's own lane where it can go fast or slow if it whats to.It is good that it has it's own lane because it prevents more traffic on highways or regular street lanes.So I think it is a good idea.
I can us these ideas in transit project by getting people to vote if this is a good Idea.I think it is a good idea because it make's me get where ever I what in a city.

i think that something like this is going to be very successful in New York because it will reduce the traffic and it will take people to point a to point b faster.

I think that the bus rapid transit project will be a great idea because the new york transit is really slow so this idea will really improve the transportation in the city

i think that buses like that over is good they had to walk and bike a lot but now they got a bus to take them where they need to go to.

I thought yesterdays presentation was put together very well in detail. There were alot of differences between the bus transportation in Bogota, Colombia and NY. What I found interesting was how the bus rapid transit has it's own lane to move in whatever speed it need to. It's also a good way to prevent traffic and it wont be such a delay for the passengers on that bus. The sliding doors are very unique. This bus transportation is very similar to the MTA.

I like the fact that people didn't have to wait for any cars to move because of the fact that the bus has its own lane

I think that it is a great idea it transport people faster to where they want to go and are better than regular buses i really like the idea.

i like that the buses have their own lane this way traffic will go much better and they do have strictly bus lanes in Manhattan but they need to make more in different parts of New York so traffic can flow much better

Glendalis said...

I like the fact that the bus transit is quicker. I would use some of the ideas because of how fast it is and it makes people get around and be where they're suppose to be on time. The idea that I would also use is the way that people pay for the bus....it sounds pretty cool and interesting.

I THINK THAT THE IDEA OF PUTTING MORE BUS RAPID TRANSIT IN NEW YORK IS A VERY CREATIVE AND NICE IDEA 2 DO,NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF THE CARS BEING ON ONE SIDE AND THE BUS BEING ON THE OTHER BUT IT ALSO MAKES EVERYTHING GO IN SUCH A FASTER PATSE....

Janera said...

I THINK THAT THE PRESENTATION WAS VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT AND WOULD BE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL IN NEW YORK. THE BUS ALREADY HAS SOME FEATURES OF A TRAIN: LIKE THE WAY THE GROUND LEVELS WITH THE BUS. SO MAYBE IF THEY WERE TO REPLACE THE TRAINS WITH THOSE TYPES OF BUSES IT WOULD BE GOOD AND THEY WOULD HAVE THEIR OWN LANE UNDER GROUND. LIKEWISE, THE BUSES HAVE IT OUTSIDE IN THAT PLACE.

I LIKED THE FACT THAT THE GREEN BUSES WERE FREE.....THERES NOTHING I DISLIKE..I LIKE THERE TRAVEL SYSTEM...IT MADE ME THINK ABOUT TRAINS ON THE NYC STREETS LIKE THEY DID,PUTTING LANES JUST FOR THE TRAIN WOULD BE GREAT!!
