Gene Kelty, chairman of Community Board 7, said the proposal for a bus-only lane could shave as much as 20 minutes off a commuter's travel time.
"It's only during rush hours," Kelty
"So there shouldn't be an impact."
According to Kelty
, restricting SBS lanes to rush hour traffic is critical, to allow for others to use the lane during off-hours.
said that the implementation of a new SBS route would also help save time by having travelers pay before boarding.
