The first of the new MTA buses have rolled out in Brooklyn and Manhattan, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced.
Each borough received three buses, complete with Wi-Fi and USB charging ports, as part of the 2,042-bus fleet coming to the MTA over the course of five years. The rollout began last year in Queens, where the buses’ new blue-and-yellow paint job stands out against older models.
“These new, state-of-the-art buses will improve the standard of service for countless commuters and will help ensure the continued viability and reliability of the MTA’s bus fleet for years to come,” Cuomo said in a statement.
Three to five buses will deploy in Manhattan and Brooklyn each week until the boroughs reach their initial quota: 86 for Brooklyn, 78 for Manhattan. Read more at AMNY.
