RATP Dev launches NYC sightseeing bus service

Posted on May 15, 2014

RATP Group subsidiary RATP Dev launched sightseeing buses in New York under the name "Open Loop New York," strengthening its presence in the U.S., while also diversifying its activities.

Two sightseeing routes are now available, one North of Manhattan, the other in the South. Featuring some 40 stops in total, the routes take in New York's iconic sites and areas, such as Times Square, Broadway and the Empire State Building.

The two sightseeing routes are using 15 double-decker buses sporting the colors of the American flag and operate every 10 to 15 minutes.

Just like the Paris "Open Tour," which is also operated by RATP Dev, an audio guide is available in eight languages relating to the city’s history and monuments by means of a dialogue between two actors.

“Open Loop” New York is aiming for some 200,000 passengers in the first year, according to company officials.
