MTA Officially Rolls Out New High-Tech Buses, Complete with Wi-Fi and USB Charging Ports



By NY1 News
Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 07:26 PM EDT



The MTA has officially rolled out a fleet of sleek new high-tech buses.

The first of 75 state-of-the-art vehicles are now in service in Queens.
They are equipped with Wi-Fi and USB charging ports, and will eventually replace 40 percent of the current fleet.

"People don't get on a bus and read a newspaper anymore. People get on a bus, and they expect to have that digital connectivity that they need to lead their life," said Governor Andrew Cuomo. "They're on the bus for 25 minutes, that can't be a wasted 25 minutes. They want to be able to plug in, get their Wi-Fi, have a USB port, do their work on their phone or their device or whatever the device of the future is, and that's what these buses now have."

The buses are the first of more than 2,000 set to hit city streets in the next five years.

The New York metropolitan area is home to many public transportation agencies and private companies. NICE (Nassau Inter-County Express), Suffolk Transit, and Bee-Line are some of these agencies. Some private operators include Academy Express, Golden Touch, Private Transportaion, North Fork Express, the Hampton Jitney, Monsey Tours and Trails, Skyliner, Coach USA and Greyhound.

Great Great Thanks for this big set of pictures of New York Icon Bus which is the RTS.
RTS can fight with Paris Icon bus which has been SC 10, built at more than 11 000 pieces, which has turned 50 years in 2015 (RATP Paris examples) and 2016 (Provinces examples).

Five Firms Unveil Designs For A Revamped Port Authority Bus Terminal

Reported by many media. From Crain's:

Quote:
Five firms submitted proposals for a new bus terminal to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, but it's unclear if any of them will come to fruition

..

Some floated bold suggestions for the megaproject, including ideas to bury the terminal under its current location, relocate it into the basement of the Javits Center, or dramatically expand the facility by seizing neighboring private property through eminent domain

..

Further clouding the competition's results were questions of whether the submissions would be nullified by an agreement reached Tuesday between West Side elected officials and the Port Authority, in which the agency agreed to an expanded planning process for the terminal project that would better include the public and other stakeholders in the process.
See also the dedicated PABT thread in the NYC forums.

Here is an article that discusses the issue:

Also, here's a recent slide deck about proposed South Bronx SBS (Bx6 SBS). It includes a map of proposed stop locations and a map of current SBS routes:

The X80 Special Events route. It runs from Lexington Avenue to Randall's Island for events such as Governors Ball, Panorama, and Electric Zoo. Passengers pay $6.50 on the first swipe, to cover both the inbound and outbound trips. While the M35 also provides service to the Island, it used commonly used by people heading to and from the facilities and buildings of Manhattan Psychiatric Hospital.

There used to be an X81 that ran from Woodside to Randall's Island but it was discontinued around 2009. There also existed program codes for lines X82 through X86:

X80 Lex-125th to Randall's Island
X81 Woodside to Randall's Island (Discontinued after 2009)
X82 Inwood-Dyckman Street to Randall's Island
X83 Yankee Stadium to Randall's Island
X84 Shea Stadium to Randall's Island
X85 George Washington Bridge (A) to Randall's Island
X86 Broadway-145th Street (1) to Randall's Island

On 2016.09.25, Q70 became Select Bus Service and was also branded LaGuardia Link.

M23 becomes Select Bus Service on 2016.11.07.

M79 is likely to change to Select Bus Service next year.
