Free Wi-Fi and USB Charging Ports on Buses
These buses not only have a new look and feel, but have transformed and modernized the MTA fleet to meet the growing demands of the 21st century.
The MTA will add 2,042 new hi-tech buses to its fleet over the next five years. The new buses will replace nearly 40 percent of the MTA's current fleet and represent a $1.5 billion investment of Capital Program resources.
From 35 to 55 USB ports are conveniently located throughout each bus. A pilot program to install digital information screens on 200 buses also will begin this year, providing customers with updated travel information including available transfers at upcoming stops, weather, and other service information.
The bus fleet redesign and these hi-tech amenities will be significant and noticeable to the 2.5 million customers who depend on our buses every day. New buses are also planned for routes serving New York City’s other boroughs by the end of 2017, including: 70 in Brooklyn, 209 buses in the Bronx, and 18 in Manhattan. The remaining new buses will be assigned to various routes throughout the five boroughs from 2018 to 2020.
