Ever since the new bus/truck rules took effect, crossing the street is a mess. There are always cars or buses in the crosswalk because the traffic is all jammed up. It was never this bad. The traffic police at the intersection selectively enforces the rules. What a mess!!!

Bond St - Dekalb Ave - Fulton St

Buses southbound on DeKalb Ave often wait extended periods for the traffic signal to turn green to turn right onto Fulton Mall while no cross traffic is observed. This light should be smarter than just running on a timer, it needs to give buses priority and should be aware of cross traffic.

Adams St - Connector - Adams St

Buses in the Adams St southbound local lanes that need to turn left onto the Fulton Mall must slowly force their way across multiple lanes of traffic on Adams Street to get to the left turn lane. This move is dangerous and time consuming, as the buses must then wait for the left turn light at Fulton. Buses should have priority at this segment, going directly from the local lanes to a waiting green arrow onto Fulton Mall. This would save minutes for each bus each trip.

Delivery vehicles are *constantly* parking on Fulton Mall, and no vehicles are ever supposed to park here. This blocks buses from moving through as they must alternate directions. Enforcement needed to prevent this from ever happening.

All vehicles (except buses) are required to turn left off to Fulton Mall onto Albee Sq W, but poor/little signage doesn't make this clear enough so private vehicles constantly continue straight, clogging the bus corridor.

Difficult Turn/Crossing

I was trying to cross Adams Street from the Post Office side to the corner of City Tech. Buses turning and a large number of cars trying to make the left onto adams Street made it hard for me. I went anyway. If I wait for all the vehicles to pass the light would have changed and I would have to stand until the next one. At my age,75 years old, that's not easy. The busway may benefit the bikers and bus riders but it is hell on us pedestrians.

Adams St - Adams St - Connector

The left turn from Adams St onto the Fulton Mall Busway has just ONE sign indicating that it is for buses only. Private vehicles constantly make this turn into the busway due to the lack of signage. The turn lane should be painted red (as the Flatbush Ext turn onto Myrtle Ave is) and the left turn signal should be a bus signal, not a traditional left turn arrow.

Jay St - Cathedral Pl - Tillary St

Coming down the bike lane on Tillary St and making a left turn onto Jay St toward the bridge, it feels dangerous with cars turning right and possibly not yielding. The other day I was hit by a car in a similar intersection coming from Clinton St onto Tillary as a car was turning onto Cadman Plaza West.

Jay St - Willoughby St - Myrtle Ave - Brooklyn

Pedestrians crossing at or near Myrtle often do not use crosswalk. They cross between cars and it is difficult as a cyclist to see them and also try to avoid the buses and cars. Pedestrians should be given much more width to cross, since that appears to be their desire . Parking should not be allowed in the vicinity of Myrtle so as to maximize sight lines and decrease conflict.

Schermerhorn St - Hoyt St - Bond St

Cars, mostly NYPD it would seem, are constantly parked in the bike lane. There is usually more bike lane blocked than open on this stretch of Schermerhorn. It is a severe safety hazard, particularly where construction is happening (where cars are typically blocking the whole car lane pushing all traffic in both directions into a single lane) and someone is going to get hurt. I hope it doesn't take a death to get this issue addressed.

I'm a commuter cyclist and want to commend you for the busway implementation. It has made riding on Jay Street feel safer and allows for faster travel by not getting stuck behind vehicles. A danger still persists and that is pedestrians waiting to cross Jay Street from within the bike lane or crossing outside of the crosswalks and popping out from behind parked cars into the bike lane. Is there signage or added awareness for peds to stay out of the bike lane?

Non-emergency vehicles belonging to the FDNY HQ park on the full sidewalk with metal barriers laid out parallel to Flatbush Ave severely restricting pedestrian access to the Metrotech area. This illegal blocking of pedestrian space hinders transit users access to the Jay St. busway.

DOT has the public and elected official's support on this busway. Leaving placard parking for Court Officers on one side of Jay St. on the busway will incentivize bus lane obstruction. The busway is half a mile long, please commit to keeping it free of all potential obstructions so that your hard work in bringing this to the public can be fully realized through quicker transit times for thousands of riders.

I was driving there this week. The new traffic rules caused bumper to bumper traffic all the way from the BQE. it took me half an hour to drive a few blocks. All the intersections are grid locked. Each green light lets about five cars thru! What a nightmare!!!

Thank you for the Jay St Busway. As a disabled person the reduced traffic makes it easier to get into/out of a ride sharing taxi on the corner of Jay St and Concord.

These road closures are detrimental to small, local businesses. Deliveries (DoorDash, GrubHub, etc.) are the most reliable source of revenue during these hard times and the closures make it impossible to continue surviving.

I am a business owner on Smith St. Times are very tough due to COVID-19 shutdowns. We are forced to cut back on every aspect possible. One of the ways is to get as much of the supplies myself instead of paying a premium having them delivered. Since the new bus and truck law went into effect this week, I cannot do that anymore! The surrounding traffic has halted to grind; it took me 30 minutes to travel a few blocks by car. And, when I finally reach the intersection at Smith and Livingston St, the traffic officers stopped me from going to my store half a block away. She threatens me with a citation if I continued to reason with her.
