  Section  1.  Paragraph  4  of subdivision (c) of section 1111-c of the
vehicle and traffic law, as added by section 9 of part II of chapter  59
of the laws of 2010, is amended to read as follows:
  4.  "Bus  Rapid  Transit Phase I plan" shall mean the following [five]
FOUR bus rapid transit routes as designated by the New York city depart-
ment of transportation:  Fordham  Road,  First/Second  Avenue,  Nostrand

the  Fordham  Road  and First/Second Avenue routes, the authorization of
this pilot program is limited to the designated bus lanes as mapped  and
posted  on the official metropolitan transportation authority website as

not be extended, shifted to another roadway or altered in any other way.
Provided,  however,  that nothing shall prohibit the alteration or addi-
tion of any bus stops within such mapped routes.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately, provided that the  amend-
ment  to paragraph 4 of subdivision (c) of section 1111-c of the vehicle
and traffic law, made by section one of this act, shall not  affect  the
repeal of such section and shall be deemed repealed therewith.
