MTA commemorates 10th anniversary of 9/11 tragedy with 2 metrocards.
In October 2010 MTA introduced ‘Select Bus Service’ on route M15 in Manhattan. It allows customers to pay for the ride on the bus stop rather than in the bus itself which suppose to speed up boarding of passengers. There are plans to do the same in other boroughs as well. The first one was in the Bronx for route Bx12.
MTA also issued matching leaflet.
