Updated December 23rd, 2018 1:19PM PST Buses will run every 20 minutes from 5am to 8am.
The buses will also stop at various bus stops throughout the city and around the country.
The New York Times reported that the buses will be able to carry as many as 8,000 passengers at a time, which is more than double the number that can take the Metro.
It will be the first time that New York City will be using buses on Sundays in more than three decades.
New York’s buses will start at 5am and run every 15 minutes for the entire trip, which will be one of the shortest days of the year for the city’s bus system.
The city is also planning to expand the number of buses on the schedule, which could mean up to 12 buses per hour, and they will stop at different bus stops around the city.
“The New Yorkers who use buses want them to stop in the heart of their communities, in the most affordable places, to help them connect to jobs, to schools, to shopping, and to recreation,” said MTA Chair and CEO Nick Fish.
While the New York Metro is expected to be more popular than the Buses of the past, the New Yorkers will still be able find the most reliable bus routes and most convenient routes for those who are traveling long distances.
As part of the plan, the MTA will also offer a daily bus schedule for the whole city, which includes New York, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Queens.
Bus routes will also be made available online.
MTA CEO Nick Pinto said in a statement that the service will allow for greater flexibility in the schedules and the use of alternate routes for some passengers.
In a statement, Buses spokesperson Matt DeAngelo said that “Our goal is to have as many New Yorkers use New York buses as possible to get around the most congested parts of the city in a way that works for them.”
“Our service is designed to serve those who want the best, most reliable and most affordable options possible, and we will continue to expand our service to meet this goal,” he said.
More to come.
