Over the last several years, New York City has transformed its transportation system through street redesign, providing safer streets for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers. Improvements like bike lanes and bus-only lanes have not only provided more efficient means of transportation, but have also led to fewer injuries due to diminished speeding, shorter pedestrian crossings, less lane-shifting, and more predictable movements for drivers.
