Four of the routes will provide direct service to subway stations in the Bronx.
“I’m optimistic that this final design will be efficacious in getting our commuters to and from their point of destination more expeditiously,” Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. told reporters.
Officials said the revamped network will improve service for the 675,000 bus riders in throughout the borough.
