NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The city Department of Transportation announced new regulations Monday afternoon in an effort to help alleviate some of the street-side gridlock caused by inter-city bus pickups.

Inter-city buses such as BoltBus have been a hit with passengers.
“Size of the seat, the leather seating, the Wi-Fi, the outlets,” one rider told WCBS 880’s Jim Smith.
But the growing popularity means crowded sidewalks and clogged traffic as buses pick up and drop off.
