NYC Department of Transportation
NYC Department of Transportation will be making safety improvements on Northern Boulevard from 62nd to 102nd Street. These include the following:
Install 9 pedestrian safety islands on Northern Boulevard at 62nd Street, 75th Street, 78th Street, 84th Street, 86th Street, 88th Street, 89th Street, 96th Street and 102nd Street for safer pedestrian crossings.
Remove westbound left turn bay and signal on Northern Boulevard at 75th Street, 78th Street, 96th Street and 102nd Street to eliminate vehicle and pedestrian conflict in the south crosswalk and to accommodate the new pedestrian island in the east crosswalk at each intersection.
Modify signal timing to maximize crossing time for pedestrians.
Install school crosswalks at all crossings to magnify pedestrians in the crosswalks.

Bus Time Comes to Brooklyn and Queens
MTA Bus Time finds the location of the next several buses that will arrive at your stop and shows you how many stops away the next bus is. The Bus Time website displays a map with moving images representing the real-time loction of buses along the routes. By checking MTA Bus Time, you can save time by going to the stop when the bus is soon to arrive.
Bus stop codes can be found online at http://www.mta/info/bustime or at bus stops on the posted Guide-A-Ride schedules. The installation of MTA Bus Time Guide-a-Ride canisters is currently in progress and will continue until May due to the vast number of stops in Brooklyn and Queens. Customers with smartphones can scan a Quick Response (QR) code that will be on all the Guide-A-Ride canisters. Or customers with cellphones can text a bus stop code or intersection to 511123 and they will receive a text back to their phone stating how many stops away their bus is.
