About the NYC Streets Plan

The NYC Streets Plan will transform how we get around our city. In 2019, historic legislation to implement the NYC Streets Plan became law. In 2022, Mayor Adams and the New York City Council agreed to a transformational $904 million investment into making the NYC Streets Plan a reality. These investments in our streets will help us reach NYC 25x25.

This legally mandated plan includes annual benchmarks it must meet through 2026:

What about bus lanes?

The NYC Streets Plan also requires at least 30 miles of bus lanes installed by the end of 2023. Our friends at Riders Alliance are tracking the administration’s progress toward that goal.

About the data

Because there is no open data set or city-hosted tracker that clearly lists bike lane project status citywide, this map has been compiled based on DOT presentations to community boards, social media posts, and on-the-ground reports.

Help us keep this tracker up-to-date. Fill out this form to share an update on a protected bike lane project you see under construction or completed, and we'll update our maps.

When are projects marked as completed? Projects are marked as completed once DOT finishes construction in line with what was originally presented online, on social media, or to community boards.

When are projects marked as under construction? Projects are moved from announced to under construction when DOT begins work on the project.
