New York Bus
Taking a New York bus is safe and easy, although it is not suitable for those in a hurry. If you no longer want to walk, then riding the bus is a great way to see New York. The buses are blue and white and all have a number and a sign on them digitally displaying the destination.
Using the MetroCard
A bus ride costs only $2.75 and can be paid by either exact change (silver coins only) or using the same MetroCard that you use for the subway. With an Unlimited MetroCard, you can also use this to pay the fare on all New York buses.
With your MetroCard, you can automatically switch to another bus or ride the subway. If you pay with cash, then you need to request a transfer ticket from the driver for your next ride.
Buses stop only at designated stops during the day. Between 22:00 and 05:00, you can ask the driver to stop anywhere along the designated route. All buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts.
At night, the bus is a safe alternative to the subway.
