NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s good news for thousands of MTA bus riders in Washington Heights.

The city’s Department of Transportation will launch the 181st Street Busway on Monday.

The half-mile busway will be limited to buses, trucks and emergency vehicles between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue traveling eastbound, and Amsterdam Avenue to Wadsworth Avenue westbound.

The DOT says 181st Street is one of the busiest and most congested corridors in Manhattan.
