NYC's Holland Tunnel Hasn't Had New Bus-Only Lanes Since Richard Nixon was President


The Bus-Only Lane is Maxed Out
Every day, 315,000 (!) people commute to New York City by bus via the Lincoln Tunnel, the Holland Tunnel, and the George Washington Bridge, reducing the number of cars on the road by about 200,000. Half of those go through the Lincoln tunnel, yet that tunnel hasn't had any increase in transit capacity since Richard Nixon was president. The video above by our friends at StreetFilms (hi Elizabeth!) argues very convincingly for that to change (at least during rush hour). Check it out, it's really well made (kudos to Hugh Gran and Carly Park for the animation and design).
