B82 Select Bus Service to launch next week

The MTA and city DOT announced Monday that after a three-month delay, the B82 Select Bus Service will launch next week. 
One of the new features included in the launch are ticketing kiosks that commuters will use to pay for a ticket before boarding.
The service will also include dedicated bus lanes and boarding from any door. 
Some community members remain opposed to the service due to lost parking spaces, traffic congestion caused by bus lanes and being left out of the planning process.
A spokesperson for the DOT says it’s addressed community concerns by amending bus lane segments, adding more parking spaces and improving signal timing.
