MTA to Install Cameras on 300 Additional Buses to Ticket Drivers in Bus Lanes

Oct. 3, 2022 By Christian Murray

The MTA is installing additional cameras on its bus fleet to ticket drivers who encroach on its bus lanes.

The agency said that it will be adding cameras to 300 buses by the end of the year across nine routes in Staten Island, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn—on top of the 123 buses that are equipped with the hi-tech system today.

The system—called ABLE (as in automated bus lane enforcement)—involves the mounting of cameras on MTA buses, which snap photos of vehicles in the lanes while the bus is in motion. The technology is in addition to the enforcement cameras that are permanently located in fixed positions on corridors throughout the city such as on Main Street, Merrick Boulevard and Woodhaven Boulevard, which have been installed by the Department of Transportation.

NYC Test Scores Drop in Math, Increase in Reading

Nearly half of New York City’s third through eighth graders passed their state reading tests last school year, while about 38% passed math, according to scores released by city officials Wednesday.

The scores are the first measure of how students across the five boroughs have fared in reading and math since the coronavirus pandemic upended in-person schooling and left many children grappling with isolation and grief. Though schools gave students other city-mandated assessments last year, officials have refused to publicly release the results.
