Buses

Reliability and Comfort

The reliability of our bus fleet has more than tripled since the 1980s, even as the fleet has grown to nearly 5,600 buses. Our newest buses have clean diesel engines and can accommodate more than 110 people. These buses are part of our new Select Bus Service (SBS), where off-board fare collection, dedicated bus lanes, and bus lane enforcement cameras have reduced travel times by nearly 20 percent on two of the most heavily-used bus routes in the nation. This year, we're introducing security cameras to more than 400 buses to help ensure that our customers and employees are kept safe on the road.

The MTA Capital Program includes more than $2 billion for buses. In addition to 2,375 new buses and 943 Access-a-Ride vehicles, the Program includes investments for on-board security cameras and a camera enforcement pilot to reduce bus lane congestion.
