Well the day is finally here: Select Bus Service officially launched today along the East Side of Manhattan. After months of preparation and public engagement, the MTA & NYC DOT have scrapped the M15 limited bus service and replaced it with their version of Bus Rapid Transit up and down 1st & 2nd Avenues. The new service features limited (or rather “select”) stops, enforced bus-only lanes, new 3 door buses, and pre-boarding fare collection. We’ve written extensively about these upgrades in the past so be sure to check out our archive to get the 411.
It sure is beautiful outside so why not head on out and grab a ride! Let us know how service is going in the comment section.
And don’t forget to clock your trip!
