SBS Improvements

Select Bus Service (SBS) brings faster and more reliable bus service to the Bx6. Bx6 SBS improves speed and reliability through dedicated bus lanes, off-board fare payment, and fewer stops. (Bx6 Local service continues, making all current stops.) Bx6 SBS also improves passenger comfort and convenience through enhanced bus stops that include shelters with seating and lighting, new boarding islands at E 161 St and Sherman Ave, and real-time bus arrival information. For more information on SBS features, please visit our SBS pages here and here.


How do I pay now?

Effective September 3, 2017, all Bx6 SBS customers must pay their fare BEFORE boarding at a fare machine. Bus stops typically have three fare machines. Two machines accept MetroCards and one machine accepts coins along with student half-fare MetroCards. After paying, you will receive a ticket as proof of purchase. You must keep your ticket for the duration of your trip. After paying, you can board the bus through any door. You do not need to show your ticket to the bus driver, unless you paid with coins and need a paper transfer. For customers using a MetroCard, transfers work the same way as other bus routes.



The Bx6 SBS Route

Effective September 3, 2017, the Bx6 SBS provides additional service to the current Bx6 Local. Bx6 SBS runs approximately from 5:30am to 10:00pm, 7 days a week. The Bx6 SBS travels between Hunts Point, Bronx, and Riverside Dr W in Washington Heights, Manhattan, making only SBS stops (see stop list below).
