Posted on May 19, 2016

NEW YORK — ABC 7 New York reports that Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the arrival of the first of 75 New Flyer buses that are being deployed into service this year as part of a concentrated effort to address overcrowding and modernize the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).

In March, Cuomo announced the addition of 2,042 buses, equipped with Wi-Fi and USB charging ports, to the MTA fleet over the next five years, replacing 40% of the current fleet.

The new buses are already starting to hit the streets, with seven buses going into immediate service and the remaining buses set to be delivered at a rate of four or five per day, with all 75 arriving this summer. For the full story, click here.
