Nicolls Road Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) System

You are invited to a public information meeting on the Nicolls Road Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) System.

Bus Rapid Transit is an innovative public transportation solution offering many of the advantages of a light-rail system but at a fraction of the cost – both for the passenger and to the municipality. BRT Systems feature:

State-of-the-art, comfortable, Wi-Fi-equipped busses
Dedicated bus-only lanes, with priority traffic signaling for less stops due to automobile traffic
Level boarding using pre-paid fare cards and electronic passes
Modern, safe and comfortable stations with real-time transit, fare and location information.
Connection to transit hubs for multimodal transportation, e.g., other bus systems, railways, airports, etc.
BRT Systems have been implemented in over 190 cities across the world, allowing passengers to arrive to their destination faster– avoiding traffic and helping to reduce road congestion.

The transformation of Nicolls Road into a multimodal corridor will establish the first direct north/ south connection between three Long Island Railroad lines; linking Brookhaven National Lab to Stony Brook University and Suffolk County Community College; connecting our Patchogue and Ronkonkoma Hub downtowns to Long Island MacArthur Airport; and creating an extensive hiking/biking network. The next public information meeting for Nicolls Road BRT will be held at Suffolk County Community College’s Ammerman Campus on Tuesday, April 2nd from 6:30- 8:30 P.M.
