Select Bus Service

The Select Bus Service (SBS) network provides a complementary service to the subway system by connecting neighborhoods to subway stations and major destinations. To improve reliability and service along these high ridership corridors a combination of tools are implemented. This includes off-board fare payment, bus lanes, traffic signal priority, and longer spacing between stops. SBS is delivering an improved bus service to growing communities in the five boroughs, particularly for trips not well served by the subway.
