MTA Buses Test Safety Technology To Avoid Hitting Pedestrians

May 31, 2016

New-MTAbusSafety technology that would warn pedestrians that a bus is turning or help bus drivers avoid collisions is coming to some New York City buses.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will start two programs to test the technologies, with the goal of eventually using them on a large scale.

The pedestrian turn warning system will be installed on 200 buses, the first 40 by the end of the year. The collision avoidance system will go on 100 buses. Twenty buses will have that technology by year end.

Bus drivers have said the design of the vehicles, with their large side mirrors and thick pillar frames, can make it difficult to see pedestrians while making turns.
